do you think some sort of air defense systems will be fitted on top of the shard?

Not at all - I notice a lot of tourists now taking photos of the shard. I think the glazing makes it look so futuristic but to be fair there's very few cities where such historic architecture can be seen in one 360' turn. The tower of London, the roman wall, tower bridge, the shard and the towers of the city.

The green section in the middle of the building, below the hotel, is the restaurant, BTW.
