DAVIDíS SLING WEAPONS SYSTEM STUNNER MISSILE INTERCEPTS TARGET DURING
INAUGURAL FLIGHT TEST
(Communicated by Josh Hantman, International Media Advisor MOD
dover@mod.gov.il

The Israel Missile Defense Organization and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency
completed the first phase of the development of the Davidís Sling Weapon
System, by conducting a successful interception test.

This test included for the first time a successful interception by the
Stunner Missile of the DSWS. The test was conducted by Rafael Advanced
Defense systems at a test range in the southern part of Israel.

The DSWS is designed to provide an additional layer of defense against
ballistic missiles by adding additional opportunities for interception to
the joint U.S.-Israel Arrow Weapon System, resulting in an improvement in
the State of Israelís defense architecture against missile threats.

The prime contractor for the integration and development of the Davidís
Sling Weapon System is Rafael, in conjunction with Raytheon. The system
radar is being developed by ELTA Industries and the Battle Management Center
by Elbit Systems.
