Video DEFEA 2021: Rafael from Israel to display modern naval defense equipment


For 73 years, Israeli company Rafael has pioneered advances in defense, developing solutions for air, land, sea, and space, and is one of the world's leading providers of systems to meet today's complex battlespace challenges. The company's holistic, combat-proven solutions – which are deployed by the Israel Defense Forces as well as by numerous users around the world ‒ are based on extensive operational experience, understanding of evolving combat requirements and deep, mission-critical know-how.

Israeli company Rafael has integrated its combat-proven technologies into a consolidated 360° multi-layered defense solution ‒ enabling full ship protection tailored to the customer's operational requirements. Based upon years of experience and operational lessons learned in various naval arenas, RAFAEL provides comprehensive multi-layered defense solutions in response to ever-increasing naval threats.

At DEFEA 2021, Rafael will showcase a number of solutions for modern naval forces including the C-Dome, an air defense missile based on the Iron Dome, which, to date, has achieved over 4000 combat interceptions. Operational with the Israeli Navy, C-Dome is designed to protect strategic naval and land assets against advanced aerial, ballistic, and surface-to-surface threats.

In June 2021, the Israeli company Rafael has unveiled the Sea Breaker, a 5th generation long-range, autonomous, precision-guided missile system. It utilizes Rafael’s technological innovations such as electro-optics, computer vision, Artificial Intelligence, and decision-making algorithms for full operational capability in GNSS-denied environments for maritime superiority missions.

Sea Breaker is a naval and artillery unit force-multiplier, designed to overcome the modern warfare arena challenges, using Rafael’s legacy of high-end precision-guided solutions.

Sea Breaker can be launched from naval platforms, varying in size, from fast attack missile boats to corvettes and frigates. The land version is a central part of the shore defense, based on Rafael’s highly mobile SPYDER launchers.
