All right talking all of military hardware I wanna get nabbed two on defense specialist a little games columnist with Fox News.
Dot com Alison Barry good to see you bounces into and they duty and you've got it very interesting piece -- it up before I get to that when I ask you want you know about iron dome how effective this defense system that the Israelis have is we hear that it's.
Not to -- a couple of rockets at least -- -- clearly there are others getting through.
It's no foolproof.
It's not -- -- on -- you know these really isn't general have.
Really cutting edge stuff and and up there with the United States in terms of just across the spectrum of -- technology really for a cleaning things and you know as -- our colleagues for saying.
I thought very safely the experience of being out there these really is living through that -- -- really does explain why they are on the forefront a lot of these air defense type systems you know you Levy's.
I spent a terrifying night one point in 2006.
When the velocity of the incident like this they did the huge firing of rockets which is followed then.
By a ground invasion it was also the year that that you mentioned that -- -- was kidnapped.
I -- -- a night in one of those times on the board met and in the top list that we need to do something uniquely terrifying I think abandon that and -- just -- you know -- -- a normal civilian death and those rockets you know they come and once you.
And you have absolutely.
No idea where they go in the -- of those firing them.
Because they're not that sophisticated don't actually it's not like it's it's not this is not a pinpoint process it's a rocket launched at a general population and it could land anyway.
There really is terrifying stuff in I know people play entities need to get so passionate about technology and stem degrees and getting kids excited about.
Technology because it.
Unless you've had experiences like that it is but I think you've done -- -- task far better than I kid explaining what it feels -- Being there is actually terrifying you know you're helpless and -- Really at the -- of the technology it you know you really are at the mercy of the technology that you know in your best brains have put together -- -- whatever country you aren't.
-- luckily Israel does have some really fantastic people working and in this field so.
They really do have some fantastic advances and they've been suffering on a daily basis kind of -- -- -- -- blitz he.
For many generations now and it's an experience and -- you've been dealing with that daily onslaught.
It's similar in away you know we've just had that just to tie it back to you why should -- care as Americans.
You we've had that recent the trial's been going on with the homegrown terrorists who -- to lose you attack the bush house and other sites United States and that's the kind of pushed aside with all the other things going on but.
Unless you experience something like we have in London with a homegrown terrorism and the attacks on a regular basis or IRA threats rented a transport.
It's hard to explain what it's like living under daily threat behind it in -- underscores the importance of everyone stepping up where they can and helping -- -- -- we should point act but that obviously.
Palestinian civilians died two it is not just.
The militants who die always in there in the is Israeli strikes for the Israeli strikes.
-- -- targeted -- and if you sold the amazing video yesterday.
All of the IDF strike against the Hamas military -- there.
And how pinpointed walls on the car in which he was traveling.
Obviously there is sometimes -- -- phrase collateral damage.
This is so there there is a difference.
In that the Palestinian rockets are fired as I say sort of randomly.
-- and the Israelis at least do that best to target what they see.
-- as militant commanders etc.
so there is a difference that.
But obviously civilians dial both sides of what is an awful conflict when we -- -- mostly -- Let's get to your.
Column today rescue in a ball.
It's definitely gonna kill me but I just trying to add something quickly -- -- Lisa -- just -- and -- -- I should reassure our viewers that.
This -- this indiscriminate RPG fire I managed just level -- in DC recently I was just looking at on some really fantastic technology American companies are developing -- -- -- -- Civilians and troops alike from just that sort of indiscriminate fire it's.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I was shifting gears sad -- had -- that ended this.
I also battling -- the storm damage that we see you also still don't get personal -- to have and do what what does it mean how does it work yes so that I really love this is DARPA program again you know I love the stuff that they do I think there -- my own meetings are but is -- for obvious.
Fisher of the key shot of the Department of Defense they do all -- -- development of future capabilities that they anticipate we're going to need.
And to -- they give contracts to serve companies they put -- out there and companies can compete to produce the technology in this case Reagan won one of the bids.
And the idea is.
Let's take -- -- sandy.
-- crisis not an -- lots of people -- knees -- thank -- probably yourself to implement or any other news in the minds -- my local gas station on tenth avenue in Manhattan yes so you know we'll be in the -- overlooking an emergency planning that's one of the things that we worry about you know -- I definitely it was not a they get paid for scores and my little report card for the emergency planning for the situation we have plenty of time and advanced to be better prepared for things like -- crises -- So answer.
Rescue in a box so the military is aware that they'd like to step in they've clearly been critical.
Even apps and a viable player you know it's a rescue relief here I mean we had what was it actually gets several thousand.
National Guard on the ground north com sent a bunch of people as well I think -- -- about 4000 people.
So they are they've committed just not not just sits on the ground but you know Marines brought in helicopters -- generators.
I didn't really helpful but they wanna do more and they want -- to do more quickly -- and -- can't -- to prom.
I was pleased that you're listening to him books I think that's something or scholarly -- we can get -- because it's tunnels are shut down bridges were shut down.
The harbor was closed for -- think about three or four days.
You know so that the oil tankers -- -- -- so the military's idea is.
Let's have something that we can scramble very quickly adolescents are as far as death like -- sit.
Cramps in the cult with goodies rescue kiddies get -- off -- and get it to exactly prison precision like -- sick I was weapon hearings -- -- -- humanitarian.
Carrying hearing he has.
And get the eighty exactly where you need it.
So they would deal to bring in fuel bring in and our reason for distribute I think this is -- -- almost two million Emery is a loser then there's a ready made deals of this would.
Meet this would be you want basically shipping container with -- all of these essential yes.
Right well it's it's kind of cooler than that actually -- In order to do that it's in east you can't get the ship and to shore you've got to deal to get stuff off the ship on -- whatever's going transport -- so.
They've created these robotic cranes can unmanned -- -- trains when I -- -- he's really heavy boxes and containers like general container ship.
-- get them there I'll buy boxes -- military says fox but it's a container and and it's not like a little gift box rent so they don't stand.
-- so the kid is captain heavy things that you got to get it over.
Deal with the -- of this he can get it you know on -- -- you people been on boats that get the kind of typical example things editing you know podcasts.
So the next step is and how do you get it to the shore so super cool and got it must must must check out this -- I think it -- for the Lincoln in the column.
Super cool and biggest vehicle we've devolved to do that it is unreal this thing weighs one point five tons -- yeah -- across the water the tree on the -- can go across marshes without -- can carry it kind of goods and it's.
And the one and I video before they can deploy -- all of this thinks they are emitted from that are at 15 -- the size and its RD being able to do this it's incredible so.
They completed phase one they're going into creating that the full size that we should be seen as quite seeing.
Now even cooler love as and -- you -- -- water for whatever reason.
You know and in this thing you know can get to the debris they have lots causes debris obviously and then -- dive teams -- called him.
I'm so you want to do an airlift so they've created this drone that he's a parachute -- lift.
And it takes the -- care packages if you will run up in the air it's got to propeller and it it can precision landed anywhere.
Safely you know in -- -- urban -- so it's pretty cool stuff.
The man I -- amazing as -- -- our line producer just said in my area the way she explains that you don't even need video it's so good let's listen for especially if -- -- -- -- up guy I would get so excited about the there video pat how are you probably got a phone and use dot com right now I have a little image of the little air went out there there's a combat.
That they won't extraordinary okay very good to go check that act as soon as we finished -- -- Allison -- defense that is all games columnist authorities have -- great to see you -- think about that was fascinating really really interesting I will go take a look at that video of myself as soon as I can.
