The Barak-1 weapon system for protecting ships against missiles produced by the Aerospace Industry (TAA) has completed a successful series of live fire tests, with an Israeli and a foreign client. In September 2008, the Al-Barak-1 missile produced by the Israel Defense Forces intercepted attacking missiles in four different tests. The weapon system launches were carried out by two navies (Israeli and foreign), and they were conducted from three different ships (one ship launched two missiles).

The four firing tests were carried out in four different scenarios, some of them against barrages, and against two types of missiles simulating targets of anti-aircraft missiles. All experiments ended with complete success.

The Barak-1 system is produced by Israel Aerospace Industries, in cooperation with Rafael. The Mabat-Tilim plant in the Systems, Missiles and Space Division of the Israel Defense Forces serves as the main contractor. The observation and fire control radars are produced by the Alta Systems division, the subsidiary company of the Aerospace Industry.

Barak-1 is an advanced system for protecting ships against missiles, and is also used against air-to-surface missiles. The system provides 360º protection against anti-ship missiles, cruise missiles, smart bombs, airplanes and helicopters. Each ship is equipped with a launcher from which the missile is fired in a vertical and fast launch for interception ranges from 500 meters to 10 km. The system has a low weight and the ability to operate day and night and in any weather.

The TEA's Barak-1 system is in operational activity in the Israeli Navy and a number of foreign navies.

  1. for 2008. According to what currently appears on the website, the experiment happened in 9.200
    (probably AD...).

  2. I wonder who the Israeli client is and why they are telling us about what happened
    In 2000 (long before the Second Lebanon War, in which, because
    What, the missiles were not activated).

  3. As long as it doesn't turn out in the next war that they didn't use it because it's dangerous to use it under normal conditions

  4. As long as it doesn't turn out in the next war that they didn't use it because it's dangerous.
