The Jerusalem Post reports: State-owned defense corporation Rafael has developed a command and control system that can monitor multiple areas for terrorist rocket launch activities.

An aircraft equipped with an advanced visual intelligence pod can fly more than 50 km. away from its target areas, and send back data to ground controllers, whose screens divide into multiple tracking zones, a senior source from Rafael said recently, describing the system.
