The Arrow Weapon System has managed to complete this morning (April 7, 2009) another successful test. This is the 17th experiment of Arrow intercept and the 11th examined, as they were developed as part of the improvement program, ASIP, the collaboration between Israel and United States.
The target missile visualized the future threat in several extremely challenging characteristics.
The target trajectory visualized an operational scenario and all of the weapon's system assembles performed in their operational form.
After the launch of the target the weapon system has entered the "play" mode and started its operation. The fire control radar (FCR) acquired the target and sent its data to the battle management command and control (BMC). A defense plan was issued and a mission command was sent to the launcher. The interceptor was launched towards its target with its improved functions.
The interceptor has performed successfully and eliminated the target.
Representatives from the Israeli missile defense organization (IMOD) cooperating with the US missile defense agency (MDA) both took part in the Arrow program.
Peace activists can now explain, in detail, why this is a bad thing and how "Palestinians" will suffer, now that their "legitimate resistance" might become not only useless in its power to "resist" occupation but also in its power to murder Jews.
Who thinks it would be funny if the mechanism, instead of destroying incoming rockets, turned them around so they hit a place close to whence they came? Would it be Israel's fault if an Arab rocket hits Arabs? Thought so.
