Israeli Aerospace Industries unveiled operational concept of a special one meter-long rocket accelerator that will double the range of Barak 8 missile system.
The rocket accelerator will enable the missiles to intercept threats from a distance of 150 kms. The system also has the ability to launch missiles designed for different ranges using the same launchers, based on the same command, control and radar systems, Globes reported Monday.
"Technological and modular innovation of the system provides a solution to a broad range of operational challenges, while effectively managing battlefield resources," IAI Systems, Missiles & Space Group general manager and executive VP Boaz Levy was quoted as saying by Globes Monday.
IAI is showcasing the concept for the Barak missile system - MX at the ongoing Eurosatory exhibition in Paris. The defense system is based on three different missile interceptors from the Barak defense missile family: one for short ranges of up to 35 kms, one for medium ranges of 35-70 kms, and one for long ranges of 70-150 kms, the news daily reported.
The system is capable of supporting radar systems and launchers for different types of Barak family missiles, thereby ensuring coverage of wide field cells against attack by warplanes, helicopters, UAVs, air-to-ground missiles, and ground-to-ground missiles.
The system's activity features operational and operating flexibility facilitating selection of the type of radar and interceptor according to the type of threat.
