Nov 10, 2014Today at 07:20 (Israel time), Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), in collaboration with the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMOD), conducted a successful test of the Barak-8 Air & Missile Defense System.
Barak-8 is an advanced groundbreaking air and missile defense system that provides ultimate protection against a variety of aerial platforms, both land and naval scenarios. It is designed jointly with the DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organization) in India and is used by the IDF and the Indian defense forces. The system includes an advanced Phased Array digital radar, command and control, vertical launchers and missiles carrying a highly advanced seeker.
Barak-8 is regarded as an extensive project by the IMOD and is led by IAI, the prime contractor, in collaboration with IMOD's Directorate of Defense Research and Development (DDR&D), ELTA Systems Ltd.- IAI's group and subsidiary, RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems, and other defense industries.
The current test validated all components of the weapon system to the satisfaction of the customer representatives. Israeli specialists and Indian scientists, including IMOD's and DDR&D's representatives participated in the test, along with both countries' armed forces officers.
Joseph Weiss, IAI's President and CEO, who was present at the testing-site, said:" The system's impressive, advanced capabilities proven today in this complex test, are another testimony of IAI's resilience, advanced and groundbreaking capabilities. Barak-8 Air & Missile Defense System is a major growth engine for the company."
The scenario began with launching the target. After being detected by the System's radar, the weapon system calculated the optimal interception point, launched the Barak-8 missile into its operational trajectory that acquired the target, and successfully intercepted it. All the weapon system's components met the test's goals successfully.
Dr. Avinash Chander, Head of DRDO and Scientific adviser to the Indian defense minister, said: "This is an important milestone in the cooperation between India and Israel and in the development of the Barak-8 advanced air defense system."
Rear Admiral (Res.) Ophir Shoham, head of Research and Development directorate in the IMOD: "The Barak-8 project expresses a constructive cooperation between the Indian DRDO, the Israeli DDR&D and both countries' Defense Forces; together they have all pushed forward this important program, overcoming technological challenges and earning achievements along the way."
Boaz Levi, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Systems, Missiles & Space Group said: "We're very satisfied with the test results. Its success is an important example to the fruitful collaboration between IMOD, defense industries in Israel and our customers in Israel and abroad."

SUCCESSFUL FLIGHT TESTING OF LR SAM MISSILE
New Delhi: Kartika 19, 1936
Monday, November 10, 2014
The Long Range Surface to Air Missile (LRSAM) is successfully flight tested against a flying target in a range in Israel, today. Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), Israel has carried out the test in the presence of DRDO scientists and officials of the Indian Armed Forces. The LRSAM system is jointly developed by DRDO and IAI Israel.
All the systems including the radar, communication launch systems and the missile system have performed as expected and hit the target directly and damaged. The system is developed for both Israel Defence Forces and Indian Armed Forces.
Scientific Advisor to Defence Minister Dr. Avinash Chander has witnessed the test along with President of IAI Mr. Joseph Weiss and other top officials of Israel Defence Forces. He termed the event as a milestone in the cooperation between two countries in developing advanced weapon systems.
IAI carries out successful trial of Barak 8 air and missile defense system
By YAAKOV LAPPIN 11/10/2014 15:50
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) announced on Monday a successful trial of its Barak-8 Air and Missile Defense System, after it shot down a target that simulated an incoming hostile aircraft.
The trial, conducted in collaboration with the Ministry of Defense, tested the next generation of defenses that are currently being installed on Israel Navy ships to protect them from a variety of threats, including Yakhont Surface to Sea guided missiles that are in the possession of Hezbollah.
Barak-8 is being jointly developed by India's Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), and will also be deployed by the Indian Defense Forces.
"The current test validated all components of the weapon system to the satisfaction of the customer representatives. Israeli specialists and Indian scientists, including IMOD's and DRDO's representatives participated in the test, along with both countries' armed forces officers," IAI said in a statement.
Joseph Weiss, IAI's President and CEO, who was present at the testing-site, said:" The system's impressive, advanced capabilities proven today in this complex test, are another testimony of IAI's resilience, advanced and groundbreaking capabilities. Barak-8 Air & Missile Defense System is a major growth engine for the company." Boaz Levi, IAI's Executive Vice President and General Manager of Systems, Missiles & Space Group said it was the first trial involving a full operational scenario.
After being detected by the System's radar, the weapon system calculated the optimal interception point, launched the Barak-8 missile into its operational trajectory that acquired the target, and successfully intercepted it. All the weapon system's components met the test's goals successfully, he said.
"The radar tracked the target, and at the right moment, the system went into action. It built up an operational scenario, and the mission missile was fired at the right time. It received updates throughout its trajectory. It then opened its eye, and acquired the target through an independent sensor, destroying it completely," Levi added.
"We are moving towards systematic production of the Barak-8," Levi said.
In addition to prime contractor, IAI, the Barak-8 project involves ELTA Systems Ltd.- an IAI subsidiary which produces the defense system's radars, and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, which manufactures the interceptor missile.
Barak-8 employs a state-of-the-art phased array multi-mission radar, two-way data link, and flexible command and control system, according to IAI.
The system has been under development for several years, and Monday's trial is the latest in a series of tests.
BARAK-8 Air & Missile Defense System
Naval and based, short to long range, point & area
Main Features Naval Implementation:
- From supersonic skimmers to high altitude targets by all weather
- Multiple simulataneous engagements in severe saturation scenarios
- Stand-Alone data link optimizing task forces and missiles coordination
- Vertical launch active missile, easily fitting on existing or new ships
