The joint Israeli-American Arrow anti-missile system scored its first successful trial at a would-be Israeli target over the Mediterranean Sea Monday morning. The experiment tested the launch system but did not include a dummy missile target.
One of the potential targets for the Arrow is the Iranian Shihab missile.
The Arrow 3 interceptor was successfully launched and flew an exo-atmospheric trajectory through space, in accordance with the test plan.
