Nautilus

   A mobile radar tracking and laser-gun system designed to provide early warning and defense against incoming short-range missiles; it is also known as the Tactical High-Energy Laser. It was deployed by Israel against Katyusha rockets and Qassam missiles. It was a derivative of the Green Pine radar system jointly developed by the United States and Israel for the Arrow anti-ballistic missile system.
