Israel’s Iron Dome C-RAM/Short-Range Air Defense System in Action.
First deployed in April 2011, Iron Dome has met with rave reviews by the Israeli military and has bolstered public confidence. Publicly, interception rates of rockets and missiles are quoted near 90%, although their have been disputes as to the accuracy of these figures. Each Tamir interceptor rocket costs between $10,000-50,000, whereas the rockets they shoot down often cost as little as $800. 
Iron Dome is a cooperative project between Israel and the United States, with the U.S. providing a sizeable share of the funding and manufacturing many components. NATO, the United States, and India have all considered buying the system.
