Israel Unveils First-Ever Anti-Hypersonic Missile Defense System

Israel Unveils First-Ever Anti-Hypersonic Missile Defense System

Rafael’s Sky Sonic missile interceptor can “neutralize threats traveling ten times the speed of sound with unmatched precision and stealth.” 

Less than two weeks after Iran reportedly launched its first hypersonic missile, Israel has unveiled its groundbreaking anti-hypersonic air defense system capable of intercepting missiles flying at the speed of sound.

The “Sky Sonic” hypersonic missile interceptor, developed by the Israeli defense technology company Rafael, is expected to be presented at the next week’s Paris Air Show.

The unveiling of Israeli-made Sky Sonic will be game changers since hypersonic missiles are considered unstoppable by existing air defense systems.

“The “Sky Sonic” air defense system features hit-to-kill technology, intercepting incoming missiles by colliding with them,” the U.S. news website Defense Post reported Friday. The interceptor “can reportedly neutralize threats traveling ten times the speed of sound with unmatched precision and stealth.”

The Times of Israel reported the details of the Israel anti-hypersonic missile system:

Israel’s Rafael defense contractor unveiled Wednesday that it has been developing a first-of-its-kind anti-hypersonic missile defense system.

According to the company, the Sky Sonic interceptor missile, which has been in development for around three years, will be shown for the first time at the upcoming Paris Air Show next week.

The announcement comes after Iran earlier this month claimed it had developed a new hypersonic missile. Rafael officials said the company had only recently been given approval by the Defense Ministry to reveal the system.

Rafael said the Sky Sonic missile “represents a major technological leap in hypersonic missile defense.”

“Designed with exceptional maneuverability and high-speed capabilities, it effectively neutralizes hypersonic missiles [which travel at speeds of over five times the speed of sound] with unmatched precision and stealth,” it said.

Iran unveils hypersonic missile as Biden hopes for a ‘mini-nuke’ deal

Earlier this week, Iran reportedly unveiled a hypersonic missile capable of bypassing western air defense systems and hitting “Israel within 400 seconds,” the regime-run media claimed.

The Iranian hypersonic missile, named Fattah, is “claimed to have a range of 870 miles (1,400km), to be able to travel at up to 15 times the speed of sound and to bypass air defence systems,” the UK newspaper Guardian reported June 6.

The Iranian “missiles can fly at least at Mach 5 – five times the speed of sound – and their speed and claimed manoeuvrability is believed to make them difficult to intercept,” the daily added.

The announcement comes as President Joe Biden hopes for a “mini nuke deal” with Iran as his policy of appeasement through easing sanctions is failing miserably.

Media mocked Trump’s warnings

In addition to Iran, Russia and China claim to have an array of hypersonic weapons. In 2021, China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile that “flew through low-orbit space” and could be able to “negate” U.S. missile defense systems,” the UK-based Financial Times reported.

While the Pentagon has conducted a series of hypersonic weapons tests, China and Russia seem to be ahead in the race, media reports suggest.

President Donald Trump repeatedly stressed the need for developing hypersonic missiles to match China and Russia’s growing capabilities. The snobbish mainstream media brushed aside the warning and mocked the president for mispronouncing the missile as “hydrosonic” and for describing it as “super duper” fast.

The New York Times even dismissed the technology as a hoax. “Hypersonic Superweapons Are a Mirage, New Analysis Says,” the newspaper reported in January 2021.

A country of 10 million continues to eat our lunch when it comes to military technology.

It’s amazing what you can do militarily when you focus on military things rather than on pronouns and systemic racism.

Yet we interfere in their elections and destabilize the country like a true friend.

While others declare how useless they are sponging off America.

Can’t win for losing.

Imagine the benefits Israel could provide to humanity if its resources were not obsessed with self-defense with forces bent on its destruction.

    “Imagine the benefits Israel could provide to humanity if its resources were not obsessed with self-defense with forces bent on its destruction.”

    Sadly, they would probably become lazy and soft – like the US.

    Not all of Israel’s technological innovations are military in nature. Even with the focus and resources that Israelis must devote to military defense as a result of Muslim terrorists’/supremacists’ implacable violence and hatred, they still have managed to make huge developments and contributions in microprocessor design, cloud computing, agricultural innovations, desalinization and other fields.

    Jews half been providing great benefits for a very long time, most people are too stupid to understand this.

Happy Father’s Day ya all, fathers

Hype ersonic missiles are mostly hype. Russia’s version is routinely intercepted by 30 year old technology.

Stealing and copying tech, while it sounds like a workable strategy, leaves you about five years behind stuff like this. Everybody should read the book Chip War to see how it plays out.

US Patriot missiles, with all of the upgrades they’ve gotten over the years, have proven capable of shooting down Russia’s hypersonic missiles targetting Ukraine. They can even handle multiple threats simultaneously and navigable cruise missiles.

Last I checked, Israel still has Patriot missiles.

Of course, there’s no guarantee of future US support, given that the D Party is all in for the “palestinians” planned eradication of Israel.
