An Arrow-3 system successfully engaged an exo-atmosphere ballistic missile target from the Pacific Spaceport Complex-Alaska on Sunday, July 28. The test series were conducted jointly by the Israeli Missile Defense Organization and the US Missile Defense Agency. A US radar system was activated in complete synchronicity with the Arrow-3.

The Arrow Weapon System is a central part of Israel’s multi-layer defense system. It is designed to engage ballistic missiles outside the earth’s atmosphere coupled with a rare capacity to target satellites. Israel’s defense system is based on four operational layers: Iron Dome, David’s Sling the Arrow-2, and the Arrow-3, which was first tested in December 2015, and was integrated in the Israeli air force’s multi-tier defense array.

The Israeli MDO is now working on developing Arrow 4 for engaging cluster warheads in space.

MDA Director Vice Adm. Jon Hill called the test a “major milestone” that “provides confidence in future Israeli capabilities to defeat the developing threats in the region.” He reiterated US commitment to assisting Israel in upgrading its national missile defense capability.

At the Sunday cabinet meeting, also attended by US Ambassador David Friedman, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said: “Our innovative tests in Alaska took part in collaboration with our ally the United States. The tests outside the atmosphere went perfectly: each target was a bulls-eye! Israel has the ability to send ballistic missiles to Iran, a huge gain for Israel’s security. I wish to thank the US government, the defense ministry and the IDF, our ambassador Ron Dermer who attended the Alaska event and the engineers and designers of the project.
