  Goalkeeper CIWS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Goalkeeper is a Dutch close-in weapon system, the purpose of which is to defend a ship against incoming missiles and ballistic shells.
Goalkeeper's projectiles are much larger (30 mm versus 20 mm) and have greater kinetic energy.
Goalkeeper is twice as expensive as the Phalanx.

 Goalkeeper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The goalkeeper is the only player who may use his or her hands to play the ball (although only within the penalty area).
In men's lacrosse, once a goalkeeper makes a save and has control of the ball in his crosse (stick), he may only remain in possession of the ball inside the protective crease for four seconds (the length may depend on the level of play).
A netball goalkeeper is one of two players who are permitted to remain within their defensive shooting third, and is restricted to the defensive third of the court.

 Goalkeeper - Gurupedia
In many team sports, the goalkeeper (sometimes colloquially goalie or keeper) is the designated player that is charged with directly preventing the opposite team from scoring by defending the goal.
In ice hockey the goalkeeper is known as a goaltender.
Most notably, the goalkeeper is the only player who may handle the ball with their hands or arms during play, though they are restriced to doing so only within their penalty area and other restrictions apply.

Because Goalkeeper uses separate search and tracking radar's the system can search for new targets while it is engaging an existing target to deal with saturation attacks.
Reaction time against a Mach 2 sea-skimming missile from automatic detection to IFF interrogation, 90 degree tracker slew, tracker elevation, X-band lock-on and computer run-in is claimed to be about 5.5 seconds with the engagement starting at 1,500m and ending with a kill by 300m.

 Goalkeeper Training
Goalkeeper is also a proprietary CIWS weapon-system.'' ---- In many team sports, a goalkeeper (termed goaltender in some sports) is a designated player that is charged with directly preventing the opposite team from scoring by defending the goal.
In field hockey, the goalkeeper wears extensive protective equipment including helmet, face and neck guards, chest and leg padding, gloves, lower leg guards (known as pads) and shoe covers (known as kickers).
Kicking the ball from the goalkeepers hands is indeed dangerous play, and yes there was an incident a number of years ago in which an attacker headed the ball when the keeper was holding it with one hand (this case is often brought up in referee exams!).

 Chinese Defence Today - Type 730 Close-In Weapon System (CIWS)
The Type 730 CIWS resembles the Thales Navy Netherlands Goalkeeper CIWS externally, and is assumed to have been based on similar design.
The development of the Type 730 CIWS reportedly commenced a decade ago, and the weapon system has received extensive trials and evaluations before it was finally approved to enter service.
It is expected that the Type 730 CIWS will replace the Type 76A dual-37 mm automatic anti-aircraft guns currently serving on most Chinese surface combatants as the standard short-range point-defence weapon system.

The RN eventually determined that both Goalkeeper and Phalanx were inadequate as point defense anti-missile systems and has been shopping around for a replacement capability with varying levels of enthusiasm.
I would understand this with Goalkeeper as I've heard the ship needs to be designed with Goalkeeper in mind, as a large part of it, but I have heard that Phalanx can simply be welded onto the deck.
The lesson of the threat from sea skimming missiles was remedied by enhancing the existing Sea Wolf Air Defence fit with Goalkeeper CIWS and improving surface to surface capabilities by replacing the Exocet with Harpoon which has double the range.

They are differerent CIWS though, one is not a simplified version of the other.
In the Phalanx-1B CIWS, a FLIR is added to the complex and hence the system is developed with surface engagment ability.
Now, if it were me developing a CIWS that my own navy didn't want and for which I had yet to find a customer, I would want to keep my development costs down.

Millenium gun actually seems to be very promising, with 1000rnds/min with AHEAD ammunition, with is supposed to be at least the equivalent of the Phalanx (35mm rounds breaking into a large number of fragments) for anti-missile purposes.
I have a hunch that if HMS Coventry had all the crew served 20mm stuff and Phalanx that was later fitted to the Type 42 she would probably survived the attack by the Argentine A4 with dumb bombs.
I suspect that the 100mm does have a limited CIWS role, though I suspect it is not quite as effective as the Oto 76mm for that, probably in part due to the very widespread use of the Oto guns.

Phalanx fires continuously until the target is destroyed, Goalkeeper fires a burst of at least 1 second (70 rounds) but can switch targets depending on threat to ship.

The Goalkeeper consists of an I-band track-while-scan search-and acquisition surveillance radar, a dual frequency LK-band tracking radar, fire-control electronics and a cannon with high rate of fire, namely the 30-.
To replenish this storage/feed arrangement a bulk loading system is used, but in an emergency manual reloading can be performed.

 What is this vehicle? [Archive] - Military Photos
It looks very much like the Goalkeeper, except that the goalkeeper also has a scanning radar next to the tracking radar (the chinese only has a tracking radar, scanning radar is probably mounted on a second support vehicle)
It is likely that the 30 mm weapon system was originally developed for ship-based applications and is very similar to the Dutch Goalkeeper CIWS, which is also armed with a 30 mm seven-barrelled cannon and is in service with the Royal Netherlands Navy and a number of other countries.
As part of an overall layered air-defence system, SAMs would be used to engage targets at longer ranges while the CIWS would engage close-in targets, especially smaller targets such as air-launched missiles and cruise missiles, which can be difficult to neutralise with some current air-defence systems.

The imperial Navy discovered that the only effective defence against anti-starship missiles is to use fully automatic guns known as CIWS, Close-In Weapon Systems, and plans to fit these weapons on their vessels as soon as possible, with priority to large vessels such as Star Destroyers.
It is illegal for civilians to possess this type of weapons, but for pirates and smugglers is a CIWS a highly prized weapons to mount on their vessels.
When a CIWS is used against other targets than a missile, use normal combat rules, but please note that the guns are in speeder-scale and therefore the vehicle blaster skill must be used.
