Arrow missile test in Pacific succeeds

A joint test today by Israel and the US of the Arrow anti-ballistic missile over the Pacific Ocean succeeded in intercepting and destroying a missile, which simulated an Iranian ballistic missile, above the atmosphere.

The test of the upgraded Arrow 2 missile, manufactured by Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (IAI) (TASE: ARSP.B1), completes a series of tests conducted in the past few months aimed at dealing with the more sophisticated missile being developed by Iran and Syria.

The Israel Air Force, Ministry of Defense's Homa Missile Defense Agency and the US Missile Defense Agency jointly conducted the test.
