Israeli defences put to the test
Israel’s integrated defence architecture has been put to the test in an integrated ground test carried out by the Israeli Missile Defense Organization (IMDO) in conjunction with the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) and the US European Command (EUCOM).
The test was carried out in June by Elbit Systems subsidiary Elisra to validate the US/Israeli integrated architecture.
The test saw the Israeli Arrow Weapons System use Arrow-2 and Arrow-3 interceptors, and the David's Sling Weapon System interoperate with US assets consisting of command and control elements, Aegis ships, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and Patriot missile defence systems. The David's Sling missile defence system participated in the drill as part of its transition to becoming operational.
Scenarios consisting of multiple missile and rocket attacks were simulated against Israel during the testing, with both US and Israel successfully employing, engaging and destroying the simulated incoming threats.
