Leading Israeli defense contractor Rafael released a new video on Monday showing the Iron Dome missile defense system successfully intercepting a high-altitude drone, Israel’s NRG reported on Monday.

In the video, a drone is seen taking off from a launching pad, and then, in slow motion, the Iron Dome interceptor makes contact in mid-air, and destroys it.

The video then shows other tests of Iron Dome drone interceptions at various altitudes, demonstrating the system’s effectiveness against the unmanned aircraft at different heights.

Iron Dome was developed by Rafael together with Israel Aircraft Industries.
