YERUSHALAYIM – Israel has successfully completed an interception test of a long-range BARAK interceptor, which is part of the defensive layer of the Israeli Navy’s Sa’ar 6-class corvette.

It was the first successful interception of a target simulating an advanced Cruise missile by a BARAK Long Range Robust Interceptor (LRAD) from the vessel.

The system is carried on board the Navy’s four Sa’ar 6-class corvettes, which play a crucial role in the protection of strategic assets, such as the natural gas rigs, in Israel’s exclusive economic zone.

The BARAK system includes an advanced radar to detect threats, a weapon system and an IAI long-range interceptor. BARAK LRAD is an interceptor with built-in capabilities to deal with a wide range of aerial threats, including fighters, UAVs, cruise missiles, surface-to-surface threats, anti-ship missiles and more.

The Israeli Navy, the Directorate of Defense Research and Development (DDR&D) of the Israel Ministry of Defense and the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) together conducted the test.
