An updated missile interceptor developed by Boeing and Israel Aerospace Industries completed its second successful flight test on Jan. 3 over the Mediterranean Sea.
The Arrow 3 test was conducted by the Israel Ministry of Defense and U.S. Missile Defense Agency, Boeing announced Tuesday.
“Boeing and IAI designed Arrow 3 to engage threats at high altitudes outside the Earth’s atmosphere.
“This successful flight test, 10 months after the first, is an important milestone in the decade-long partnership between IAI and Boeing in the Arrow program,” said Bill Dickerhoff, Arrow program director for Boeing.
IAI’s MLM division is the prime contractor for the Arrow Weapon System program.
