Rafael Australia is coming to the Avalon 2023 Australian International Air Show running from February 28th till March 5th. Rafael will be showcasing an array of defence solutions and capabilities, with a particular focus on air defence systems. Among the systems showcased is Iron Beam— the High Energy Laser Weapon System (HELWS) — which will be presented in Australia for the first time.
Rafael delivers defence innovations to Australia through Varley Rafael Australia (VRA) — a joint venture between The Varley Group, Australia’s oldest defence enterprise, and Rafael Advanced Defence Systems. This joint venture supports regional supply chains through in-country Australian production and assembly while simultaneously bolstering the local economy through job creation. The Company’s local manufacturing portfolio is highlighted by the production of SPIKE Missiles which can be integrated on helicopters and platforms on all domains.
Over the past 70 years, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems’ Integrated Air and Missile Defence Systems Division (IAM&DS) has earned a reputation as a world leader in developing, manufacturing, and delivering advanced, innovative, and combat-proven air defensive solutions.
Additional systems showcased include the world-renowned Iron Dome aerial defence system, as well as C-Dome— the naval configuration of the Iron Dome. Likewise, Rafael’s multi-mission interceptor Stunner will be showcased alongside SPICE 250 autonomous missiles and Spike for Helicopters.
