Israeli Technology Intercepts Missiles in Space Tech – 6 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Israel’s battle continues into outer space. The IDF reported destroying air threats using the Arrow missile defense system.

The air threat came from Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen. The IDF report regarding the missile shooting was made last week.

The rocket is thought to have reached the Karman line, namely the boundary between the atmosphere and outer space, which is around 100 kilometers from the surface. The Houthis are said to have launched the Barkan 3 long-range and laser-guided missile, quoted from Daily MailThursday (9/11/2023).

Referring to the Houthi threat late last month, IDF spokesman Daniel Hagari explained that Israel knows how to protect itself and its interests. He also added that his party would concentrate on the war with Hamas and would not be distracted by the incident.

Arrow was built together with the United States. The first trial was carried out in 2013 and subsequent trials in 2014 and 2019 in Alaska.

The construction of the Arrow was carried out amid concerns about Iran’s ongoing nuclear and ballistic programs.

Arrow is designed to intercept ballistic missiles outside the Earth’s atmosphere. Apart from that, it can also launch long-range threats, including those carrying weapons of mass destruction.

Daily Mail wrote Arrow using hit-to-kill technology. This is done to destroy incoming missiles by launching vertically and moving to the interception point.

Israel has also used the Arrow system in the Hamas war on October 7 2023. Meanwhile, on October 31 2023, the Houthis joined the conflict firing drones and missiles at Israel.
