ISRAELI MOD AND US MDA SUCCESSFULLY CONDUCT FIRST ARROW 3 INTERCEPTOR FLIGHT
TEST
(Communicated by Josh Hantman, MOD Int'l. Media Advisor dover@mod.gov.il )

This morning, Monday, 25 February 2013, Israel's Missile Defense
Organization (IMDO) and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) completed a
successful flight test of the Arrow 3 interceptor missile.

This is the first flight test of the Arrow 3 interceptor and was conducted
at an Israeli test range over the Mediterranean Sea.

The Arrow 3 interceptor was successfully launched and flew an
exo-atmospheric trajectory through space, in accordance with the test plan.

The Arrow 3 interceptor was designed to provide an additional level of
defense against ballistic missiles, to add interception opportunities to the
joint U.S.-Israel Arrow Weapon System and to improve the active defense
architecture of the State of Israel against missile threats.

The successful test is a major milestone in the development of the Arrow 3
Weapon System and provides further confidence in future Israeli defense
capabilities to defeat the developing ballistic missile threat.

Israel's Missile Defense Organization and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency
officials conducted the flight test. The main contractor for the
integration and development of the Arrow Weapon System is MLM of the Israel
Aerospace Industries (IAI) in conjunction with Boeing.
