Rafael Signs Iron Dome Missiles Export Agreement With Romanian Firm

Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. has signed a cooperation agreement with Romanian company Romaero for the first ever export sales of the Iron Dome rocket interception system.

Under the new cooperation agreement, Rafael will allow the transfer of know-how and production of Rafael-developed systems in Romania in the framework of procurement programs for the Romanian army already approved by the Romanian parliament, Globes reports.

The agreement refers to air defense systems, including rocket interception system Iron Dome and its naval version; Samson remote controlled weapons stations; and Spike anti-tank missiles.

Iron Dome provides defence against short-range missiles and rockets which pose a threat to the civilian population of Israel’s northern and southern border. The system was deployed by the Israeli Air Force (IAF) in March 2011.
