US, Israel Put Arrow 3 Ballistic Missile Interceptor Through Flight Test

The Missile Defense Agency and its Israeli counterpart have supported a flight test of an Arrow 3 weapons system built to intercept ballistic missiles flying outside the atmosphere.

Arrow 3 prime contractor Israel Aerospace Industries led the test in collaboration with Israel air force,  MDA said Monday.

The system is a key component of Israel’s multilayered defense array composed of Iron Dome and David’s Sling and Arrow 2 and Arrow 3 missile defense weapons.

The Israeli air force received the latest variant of interceptors early in 2017 for operational use.

Boeing serves as IAI’s Arrow 3 development and production partner in the U.S.
