Would be nice to have a tracking system that sends a rocket back to the source. Maybe something that has a large blast radius.

We have that capability. We need to be sharing and assisting Israel, but I don't have any hopes of the Muslim in chief doing so. Damn it, this ticks me off.

What you're talking about is called counter-battery radar guided artillery which has been around since the eighties. The Israelis have this capability in their Shilem system. They could easily lob 155mm artillery shells back to the rocket launch sites, but they don't use these against Hamas because they're not as accurate as guided bombs and would hit more civilians.

The Iron Dome has an integrated detection and tracking system that creates the best intercept calculation.

The HamAss/Iranian rockets can't be controlled - they're unguided.

"The "Fajr" (Dawn) series are mobile-launched, unguided, solid-fuel artillery rockets "
