Able to intercept missiles at close range to medium-range three times the iron מ”כיפת. In the future, added the system capable of intercepting aircraft and missiles at ranges, later also added the ability to intercept cruise missiles.

“The most important part is the connection of the system with the existing fabric. Allow it to work with the other interception systems of air defense, “head of Department” magic wand “in casting equipment, major Jesse Rosenberg. In order to meet this goal, with the launch of “magic wand” connected systems, the cooperation of the home front command, which provide a warning on the home front and interception systems information and the image.

Moreover, “magic wand” will include stand-alone systems. These days was needed for the Management Center, and it will be all about interception. Like
Yes, the system just ability, and is able to transmit information about the location of the missile interceptor
In real time.

Before the introduction of the system demonstrated to exist two major trials that determine competency. When first check the system ability to intercept a rocket shot past promotions such space, and the second test is expected to prepare for the delivery system to the air force.

In order to prepare for the system and making it operational, in recent months developed training program for the first core of the “magic wand”. In the near future, a group of experienced technicians and the aerial defense through the first training to operate the system, which includes various courses and workshops. “The goal is to end the combat training in the operational time of the system, in order to run her best and fastest,” concluded Maj. Rosenberg.
