This was the interceptor’s second successful test. It completed its flight plan in full, meeting every one of the experiment’s goals.

The test fire was headed by the Administration for the Development of Weapons and the Technological Industry at the Israeli Defense Ministry, in collaboration with the U.S. Missile Defense Agency—a U.S. Defense Department division responsible for developing layered defenses against ballistic missiles.

“The development of these types of systems will allow Israel to deal with the threats we are facing and it will help the IDF mount a swift and decisive response, should one be necessary,” said Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon.
