Israel Air Force Deploys Operational Arrow-3 Missile Defense

Israel Air Force Deploys Operational Arrow-3 Missile Defense

The Arrow 2 is created to intercept projectiles high and low within the atmosphere. State-owned Israel Military Industries produces the rocket motor for both Arrow interceptors, with Boeing supporting the largely US-funded program with US-based production of the two Arrow missiles.

Israel declared the top tier of its air defence umbrella operational on 18 January, when the first Arrow-3 interceptors were formally handed over to the Israeli Air Force (IAF) in a ceremony.

After years of development and testing, the system is now considered operational, though it will continue to undergo checks and improvements, the ministry said. The new interceptor offers longer-range, higher-altitude (exo-atmospheric) and more precise ballistic missile engagements.

"It is a new era in Israel's multi-layered defense system", said IMDO Director Moshe Patel.

"The missile here, behind me, once sat on my drafting table".

Zimmer Biomet made a subsequent donation three months after Price introduced the HIP Act to the House in early 2016. Chuck Schumer of NY , the Senate minority leader, called for an investigation into Price's activities.


In salvo scenarios, Arrow-3 will be able to shoot twice against a single target, assess for battle damage and, if needed, divert to other approaching threats, program officials here say. The as-yet-to be deployed David's Sling is created to intercept medium-range missiles.

The Defence Ministry said the US -funded Arrow 3 system, jointly developed by state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries and USA firm Boeing Co., was handed over the Israeli Air Force.

The Arrow-3 development programme, a joint programme between Israel and the U.S., was co-managed by the U.S. Missile Defense Agency and IMDO.

Numerous systems shared by the Arrow 2 and Arrow 3 - notably the radar and command-and-control systems - have also been upgraded, ahead of the Arrow 3's full integration into the air force's arsenal.
