The Israeli defence company, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), announced from its social media account that it has successfully tested a new long-range air defence system.


The Barak ER (extended range) anti-ballistic missile was tested in several scenarios. The test included the interception of an assaulting ballistic target by Barak ER's interceptor.

The ER missile may intercept air threats at a range of 150 km and ballistic targets as part of Barak interceptors' family of various ranges.

The extended range capability was made possible in part by adjusting the interceptor and the IAI's multi-mission radar (MMR) capabilities to the 150 km range.
