I've Been Thinking:
The Iron Dome was just used to shoot down a drone in the United States.
It was a test.
The purpose of the test was to evaluate the Iron Dome and see if it could be used against a variety of weapons, including US drones. This is the first time the Iron Dome was shot in the US. Most importantly, the US wants to purchase the Iron Dome but only when they know that it can work against various weapons.
In the past year the Iron Dome has been upgraded to strike a multitude of targets. That will make the weapon marketable. As of now the Iron Dome has not been sold to anyone.
Since 2011 the Iron Dome has shot down 1500 targets - that was a success rate of 90%. There are not many defense systems in the world that have that level of success.
The fact that the US is showing interest in the Iron Dome is huge.
The fact that Israel's Iron Dome is unique and one of a kind and will probably be purchased by the US is an enormous success.
