Alaska missile testing for Israel will be town hall subject

As a result of efforts by Iran to develop its long-range ballistic missiles, Israel and the U.S. are continuing their joint efforts to develop and test the new Arrow 3 anti-ballistic missile defense system.

The system is set to be tested against a target similar in behaviour to the advanced ballistic missiles, which are now being developed, and have already been achieved, by Iran.

Testing of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system is also set to take place in Alaska in the summer.

Adm. James Syring, director of the United States Missile Defense Agency, told a USA congressional committee that Israel would test the missile in Kodiak, Alaska next year.

The Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (TMO) Stake Increased by ProShare Advisors LLC
The stock of Enbridge Inc (USA) (NYSE:ENB) earned "Market Perform" rating by Wells Fargo on Monday, April 3. Deutsche Bank initiated Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc . (NYSE:TMO) on Friday, April 29 to "Hold" rating.

Testing of the Arrow-3 missile system will begin in 2018, the Kodiak Daily Mirror reported (http://bit.ly/2rX3vuM ). The location was chosen given its relative isolation as there is a possibility that shrapnel will fall following the interception. Arrow 3 may eventually be used to destroy satellites in outer space, the news outlet said.

According to sources as the trial center in Alaska, the cost of the trial will be $80 million, part of which will be financed by the US.

The missile, which is jointly managed by MDA and the Israel Missile Defence Organization, was developed by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Boeing Company, Campbell explained.

Jerusalem Online noted that Arrow 3 operates in the exosphere, implying that even if a ballistic missile was armed with a nuclear warhead, the explosion would be predominantly muted with little effect to populations and infrastructure on the ground.
