Israel Launches Huge Missile & Drone-Detecting Balloon As Iran Expands Reach

Israel's Defense Ministry on Wednesday unveiled the latest upgrade to its anti-air defenses, citing a heightened continued threat from Iran's ballistic missile arsenal and increasingly sophisticated drones, also possessed by Lebanon's Iran-backed ally Hezbollah.

A large new high altitude blimp called "Sky Dew" is set to be launched, which is equipped with a radar-based system in order to provide early detection for any inbound long-range missiles or drones. The balloon's sensors will complement existing anti-air defenses and radar, which includes the Iron Dome missile system, according to Israeli media reports.
