An Israeli defense contractor says it plans to reveal a new missile defense system based on lasers that are designed to heat and blow up incoming warheads, the latest answer to Israels growing concerns about regional instability.
At a conference next month in Singapore, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, Ltd will unveil the system Iron Beam a High Energy Laser (HEL) based system Against Rockets, Mortar and Airborne Target Attacks, the company announced on its website.

If it is a particle beam weapon, there is no deflecting that. And it would represent a huge step forward in High Energy weapons systems.
