Israel's Iron Dome defense network, which includes short-range rocket interceptors and kamikaze satellites that blast ballistic missiles in space, was slated to be fully implemented by 2015, officials said Monday, according to a Reuters report.

The projected date was announced during a government-sponsored aerospace conference in Jerusalem, and corresponds to Israel's prediction of when Iran might have nuclear weapons.

"In the next two to five years, we will turn this vision into a reality," said Colonel Zvika Haimovitch of the Israeli air defense corps, as quoted by Reuters. "Within the coming five years, we will see this doctrine implemented."
