IAI demonstrates Barak ER to defeat long-range and ballistic threats

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) on 22 March completed a series of successful live air defence firing trials involving its Barak Extended Range (ER) interceptor missile.

‘The trials tested the system’s capabilities in a range of scenarios and threats, including the interception of an assaulting ballistic target,’ IAI announced.

Part of the Barak MX integrated air and missile defence system, the vertically launched Barak ER is capable of intercepting ballistic and other airborne targets at up to 150km range. The interceptor includes a booster, dual-pulse rocket motor and advanced radar homing seeker.

‘The extended range capability is made possible in part by adjusting the interceptor and MMR radar capabilities to a 150 km range,’ IAI added.
