Press Release, Tel Aviv, 12 July 2022: Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. is participating at the Farnborough International Airshow 2022 in the United Kingdom where it will introduce the Ice Breaker: a 5th generation long-range, autonomous, precision-guided missile system, enabling significant attack performance against a variety of high-value land, and sea targets. Ice Breaker is a multi-service solution, across air, land, and sea domains.

This unveiling comes one year since the introduction of the Sea Breaker, which serves as the naval and land-based version of the all encompassing Ice Breaker. The Ice Breaker offers a full scope of commonality, incorporating not only the land and naval platform application, but now across all domains, with enhanced capabilities. Ice Breaker is an aerial force-multiplier designed to overcome modern warfare arena challenges through RAFAEL’s legacy of high-end precision-guided solutions. Ice Breaker is resilient to electronic countermeasures, and is fully operational in GNSS-denied arenas.

Ice Breaker provides surgical, pinpoint precision strike capabilities from standoff ranges of up to 300 km. It features an advanced IIR (Imaging Infra-Red) seeker, ideal for stationary or moving land and maritime target engagement in advanced Anti Access/Area Denial (A2/AD) arenas. Ice Breaker is compatible with various aerial platforms, including jet fighters, light aircraft, and helicopters, and is fully operational across all weather conditions. The missile’s datalink supports real-time man-in-the-loop decision-making and tactical updates, with mid-flight abort and Battle Damage Assessment (BDA) capabilities. Employing RAFAEL’s unique combat-proven artificial intelligence technology, Ice Breaker performs deep-learning and big data based scene-matching, enabling Automatic Target Acquisition (ATA) and Automatic Target Recognition (ATR).

Flying at high subsonic speeds, Ice Breaker has a multi-directional, synchronised full sphere attack capability, based on predefined attack plans, according to waypoints, azimuth, impact angle and aim-point selection, ensuring a high probability of mission success. Ice Breaker transforms light platforms (planes, helicopters and ships) into dominating fighting machines, enlarging the stand-off capability of high-end platforms.
