Defense Ministry has held an Additional Test for the Upgraded Operational Capabilities of the 'Iron Dome' System

Defense Ministry has held an Additional Test for the Upgraded Operational
Capabilities of the 'Iron Dome' System

(Communicated by Josh Hantman dover@mod.gov.il , MOD International Media
Adviser)

Israel's Missile Defense Organization ('Homa'), the branch of Israel's
Ministry of Defense responsible for the development of Israel's multi-layer
missile defense system ('Iron Dome', 'David's Sling', 'Arrow 2' and 'Arrow
3') in collaboration with the primary contractor for the project, Rafael
Advanced Defense Systems recently conducted a series of tests which had
been planned in advance, as part of the upgrade program for the 'Iron Dome'
system.

The series of tests is aimed at broadening and improving the capabilities
and performance of the system in the face of an unprecedented array of
threats. The test, which was declared a success, will contribute to the
improved operational capacity of 'Iron Dome'.

The 'Iron Dome' system is a missile interception system against short range
missiles; the first (and only) of its type in the world. It was developed
by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems in conjunction with Elta, Mprest,
Israel's Defense R&D Directorate at the MOD and the Israeli Air Force.
