Subject: ADF GBAD Article on Defense Industry Daily

See: Surely any chosen system must have a C-RAM focus? And the current GBAD options don't seem to handle C-RAM. Eg SLAMRAAM and IRIS-T SL? Maybe BAMSE would be an option? Or a solid state laser? What about a joint venture with Israel for a variant of their shorter range system, Iron Dome/Cap? Thoughts on the importance of this project? Options?

I'd like to see an SP system that can keep up with our new "hardened & networked" army, especially if we do finally procure SP artillery as part of Land 17. Given we are likely to have air superiority if acting alongside coalition forces in a "high intensity" conflict it is unlikely there will be a lot of the budget allocated to defence against enemy aircraft (although it would still be right to do so). I'd hazard a guess that the system will be weighted towards new technologies that can counteract mortar/artillery rounds, etc.

Skyshield features a modular design, flexible capabilities and a high level of automation as well as being easy to transport. A central sensor unit/C4I controls two 35 mm revolver guns and one or two missile launchers as an option." alt="" />" width="300" border="0" />

I've a thought.
These DID articles are shite and they do their research VERY poorly.  
16 AD Regt DOES operate the Bolide missile...
