Israel, US Successfully Test New Features in Key Interceptor

(Israel Hayom via JNS) Israel and the United States have successfully completed live-fire intercept tests of the David’s Sling Weapon System (DSWS), the countries announced.

The tests were designed to gauge the ability of the system’s features by simulating cruise and ballistic missiles. Their conclusion marks a major milestone in the two countries’ collaboration on missile defense.

Iron Dome, the Arrow and David’s Sling are part of the joint U.S.-Israeli project to develop a multilayered missile-defense system that would allow Israel to maintain its military edge in the region. The Iron Dome has been instrumental at intercepting rockets from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, and the hope is that the project would also be useful in any future conflagration involving long- and medium-range missiles from Iran.
