Israel, U.S. Conduct Joint Test of Arrow 2 Interceptor Missile

Israel and the United States conducted a test of the Arrow 2 interceptor missile.

The test was conducted by Israel’s Missile Defense Organization and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency at an Israeli test range over the Mediterranean Sea, Israel’s Defense Ministry announced in a statement issued Tuesday.

The Arrow 2 provides the Arrow Weapon System, a long-range ballistic missile defense system, with an interceptor engagement capability.

“An Arrow 2 missile was launched and performed its flight sequence as planned. The results are being analyzed by program engineers,” Israel’s Defense Ministry said in a statement.

The primary contractor for the integration and the development of the Arrow Weapon System is the Israel Aerospace Industries, in conjunction with Boeing, Elta, and Elbit/ Elisra.

In February, Israel conducted a successful live test of the Arrow 3 interceptor missile defense system.
