atmosphere and point defence

Page52 Atmosphere summary.
weapon systems lock changes to 6+.
close action weapons may not fire.

does this apply to point defence as well?
or since close action weapons without special rules (air to air) cant fire in atmosphere is there no point defence at all?

Point defense applies to close action weapons with air-to-air, as its not explicitly disallowed. All of the corvettes have close action and air-to-air, so it does come up often enough.

If the question is about if Point Defense can be used while in atmosphere, the answer is Yes.

Point Defense is not a weapon system and is not any sort of attack roll.
