MDA, Israel Gov’t Demo Arrow-3 Missile

Jeff Brody

The Missile Defense Agency partnered with the Israel Missile Defense Organization of the Directorate of Defense Research and Development to test an anti-ballistic missile in Alaska, DefenseNews reported Sunday.

The Arrow-3 platform intercepted missiles in high-altitude, hit-to-kill scenarios during the demonstration.

Built by Boeing in partnership with Israel Aerospace Industries, Arrow-3 is a ballistic missile system designed to repel exo-atmospheric targets and defeat short and mid-range rockets. Israel previously tested the missile platform to validate its capacity to distinguish varying targets.

"This unique success in Alaska provides confidence in future Israeli capabilities to defeat the developing threats in the region," said John Hill, director at MDA.

Hill added the U.S. government will assist Israel in the modernization of the latter's missile defense technology.
