Abstract: The authors suggest a low cost closed AB-Dome, which may protect small citiessuch as Sederot from rockets, mortar shells, chemical and biological weapons.The offered AB-Dome is also very useful in peacetime because it protects thecity from outside weather violent storms, hail and creates a fine climatewithin the Dome. The roughly hemispherical AB-Dome is a gigantic inflated thintransparent film, located at altitude up to 1 - 5 kilometers, which convertsthe city into a closed-loop air system. The film may be armored with a basaltor steel grille or cloth pocket-retained stones that destroy by collision ordetonation incoming rockets, shells and other projectiles. Such an AB-Domewould even protect the city in case of a third-party nuclear war involvingtemporary poisoning of the Earth atmosphere by radioactive dust. The buildingof the offered dome is easy; the film spreads on the ground, the fan enginesturn on and the cover rises to the needed altitude and is supported there by asmall internal overpressure.The offered method is cheaper by thousands of times than protection of a cityby current anti-rocket systems. The AB-Dome may be also used height is up to1-5 and more kilometers for TV, communication, long distance location,tourism, suspended high speed and altitude windmills energy, illumination andentertainment projected messages and pictures.The authors developed the theory of AB-Dome, made estimations, computationsand computed a typical project. Discussion and results are at the end of thearticle.
