Successful Live Firing Trials:
IAI Demonstrates Extended Air Defense Capabilities for Longer Range and Ballistic Threats
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) today completed a series of successful live firing trials with the Barak Air Defense System. The trials tested the system’s capabilities in a range of scenarios and threats, including the interception of an assaulting ballistic target by the Barak ER (extended range) interceptor.
The Barak ER missile, developed by IAI, combines the capability to intercept air defense threats at a long range of 150 kilometers and ballistic targets as part of IAI’s Barak interceptors’ family of various ranges. The extended range capability is made possible in part by adjusting the interceptor and MMR radar capabilities to a 150 km range.
