David’s Sling Missile Defense System Tested Against Advanced Threats | Defense Update:

The test examined capabilities and performance of the entire David’s Sling Weapon System. Through these tests, Stunner missiles intercepted threat-representative, highly maneuvering, long-range target at high-altitude. The system’s Multi-Mission Radar (MMR) detected the target after launch and transferred flight information to the Battle Management Center (BMC), which calculated the defense plan. The interceptors were successfully launched, performed all flight phases and engaged the targets as planned. Preliminary analysis indicates that all test objectives were successfully achieved. During the test other systems participated in ‘shadow mode’, testing the integration and mutual support between the systems (editor’s note: David’s Sling and Iron Dome systems share a common radar and are part of Israel’s multi-tiered missile defense system.)
