Called Iron Beam, it is a mobile system for High Energy Laser (HELWS) developed by RAFAEL.
Designed to destroy targets by irradiation with high energy directed (HE) of the laser beam, the system will have a wide range of applications, from securing aerial targets, act as a rocket or missile artillery actions, or to attack unmanned aerial vehicles Unmanned (UA).
