David's Sling Antimissile System Intercepts Target

The Israel Missile Defense Organization and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency completed a successful intercept test today of the David’s Sling Weapon System.

This test, designated David’s Sling Test–2, is the second intercept test of the Stunner interceptor for the David’s Sling Weapon System, and was conducted at a test range in southern Israel.


A target missile was launched and tracked by the system’s multi-mission radar. The radar transferred flight information to the battle management control system. The Stunner interceptor successfully performed its planned trajectory and destroyed the target.

The David’s Sling Weapon System is designed as an additional layer of defense against ballistic missiles, to add interception opportunities to the joint U.S.-Israel Arrow Weapon System and to improve Israel’s defense capabilities against missile threats.

The successful test is a major milestone in the development of the David’s Sling Weapon System and provides confidence in future Israeli capabilities to defeat the developing ballistic missile threat.
