“Sky Sonic”, which neutralizes hypersonic missiles with unmatched precision and stealth, will be officially unveiled at the Paris Air Show that opens next week
RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems announced yesterday (Wednesday) that it has developed an advanced interceptor, named “Sky Sonic,” as a groundbreaking defensive response to the growing threat of hypersonic missiles. This system will be officially unveiled for the first time at the Paris Air Show, one of the world’s largest aerospace exhibitions, opening next week.
The Sky Sonic interceptor 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 ten times the speed of sound, with unmatched precision and stealth. RAFAEL’s booth at the Paris Air Show will showcase the interceptor, highlighting the company’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of air defense technology.
“RAFAEL has identified a marked increase and arousing interest in the international arena with proven operational capabilities and a geopolitical reality that has created many opportunities,” said Dr. Yuval Steinitz, Chairman of RAFAEL.
“We are following the developments and emerging threats in the current security context and are developing the most advanced defense systems. Project Sky Sonic is an innovative, unique development of its kind for the hypersonic weapon threat.”
Major General Yoav Har Even, CEO of RAFAEL, spoke about the company’s portfolio, which it will present at the Paris Air Show. “The orders for these systems are breaking records and for the first time we stand on a backlog of orders of over 40 billion NIS and alongside the activity as a successful global business company, RAFAEL continues to be a significant pillar in the security of the State of Israel.”
Last week, Iran presented what she claims to be a homemade hypersonic missile, boasting it can “bypass the most advanced anti-ballistic missile systems of the US and the Zionist regime,”
