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.
