Israel touts 'steel dome' as answer to terror tunnels

For the fourth time in three months, Israel employed what is being called here its “steel dome” to detect and destroy a cross-border tunnel from the Gaza Strip.

Inspired by the Israeli Iron Dome, which combines radar, a discriminating battle management system and kinetic interceptors against short-range rockets and other cross-border threats from the air, the so-called steel dome is a multilayered system of new technologies, tactics and procedures aimed at denying militants from Hamas and Gaza-based terror organizations the ability to attack Israel from underground.

Tunnel warfare has become standard in Israel and neighbouring countries. By combining the technology of the Iron Dome, and our CanaryCommPac communication system, defence forces have the ability to detect and covertly communicate in man made tunnels, effectively blocking enemy lines.
