Israeli Air Force gets Arrow-3 interceptors
Arrow-3 interceptors developed by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) MLM division have been formally integrated into the Israeli Air Force’s Arrow Weapon System (AWS), the company announced on 19 January.
The Arrow-3 interceptor, together with the Arrow-2, will enhance Israel’s strategic ballistic missile defences, enabling the system to defend against threats at longer ranges, higher altitudes (exo-atmospheric) and with greater precision.
The Arrow-3 development programme was a joint effort between Israel and the US, with subcontractor Boeing playing a key role in the development and production of interceptor components.
During the integration process of the new interceptor, the weapons system components were fully upgraded, new capabilities were added to the Elbit Systems-developed battle management centre and the IAI/ELTA radar detection array.
