Jewish 100, 2015: Yosi Druker – Innovation and Activism
Executive Vice President of Rafael
Yosi Druker, who led the team that developed Iron Dome, the lifesaving system which has defended Israel from thousands of Gaza rockets, is still hard at work protecting the Jewish state.
The real challenge, said the Rafael executive vice president, will likely come from the north via the estimated 100,000 rockets and missiles in the arsenals of Iranian-backed Hezbollah.
To that end, the Israel Security Prize laureate works continuously to improve Iron Dome, as well as to hone David’s Sling, Israel’s newest intercepting layer to defend against longer-range rockets and short-range ballistic missiles. David’s Sling should be operational mid-2016.
