Based upon years of experience and deep operational know-how in various naval arenas and scenarios, and integrating combat-proven technologies in all domains, Rafael maintains its efforts in bringing leading technologies and solutions to provide naval forces defense superiority against all modern naval threats above and below the waves, such as naval area defense, swarm attack defense, and torpedo defense.

The Sea Breaker is a naval and artillery unit force-multiplier, designed to overcome the modern warfare arena challenges, using Rafael's legacy of high-end precision-guided solutions.

The Sea Breaker is a precision-guided, long-range, autonomous missile system allowing operator intervention at any stage. The system utilizes RAFAEL’s wide range of technological innovations such as electro-optics, computer vision, Artificial

The Sea Breaker provides surgical, pin-point precision strikes from stand-off ranges of up to 300 km. It features an advanced IIR (Imaging Infra-Red) seeker, ideal for engagement of maritime and land targets, stationary or moving, in advanced Anti-Access/Area Denial (A2/AD) arenas, and in littoral or brown water, including archipelago, as well as for engagements in which previous generation RF-seeker-based missiles are not effective.

The C-Dome is designed to effectively protect warships against a large set of modern threats. It handles saturation attacks by engaging multiple targets simultaneously. The system uses the combat-proven Iron Dome air defense systems that have already intercept more than 1,500 successful interceptions.

The C-Dome components include a multi-round launcher assembly loaded with vertically launcher canisterised interceptors. The launcher unit can be installed under the ship deck. It utilizes the ship's own surveillance radar and does not require a dedicated Fire Control Radar. Weapon system command and control is seamlessly integrated with the ship's combat management system, facilitating all combat operations.
