Israel, US syncing missile defense systems for joint response to future attacks
Trial was designed to see if Israel's Arrow systems, and David's Sling, could link up with American systems.
In face of the increasing missile threat to Israel, the Defense Ministry and the US Missile Defense Agency completed a test in recent days aimed at synching Israeli and American air defense systems so they can operate cooperatively in a future war.
During the trial - the first of its kind - the physical "connectivity" between the systems was tested. The test involved sites scattered around the United States, Israel, and Europe.
Elbit Systems EW and SIGINT - Elisra led the trial, which was designed to see if Israel's Arrow systems, and David's Sling, could link up with American systems.
The trial involved a "central Israeli development site, and sites spread out across the United States," the Defense Ministry said in a statement.
