Description
The Arrow 3 is the latest development of Arrow anti-ballistic missile jointly developed by by Israel and United States. An Arrow 3 battery is expected to intercept salvos of more than five ballistic missiles within 30 seconds. The Arrow 3 can be launched into an area of space before it is known where the target missile is going. The Arrow 3 is a an upgrade variant of the Arrow 2 weapon system in service with Israeli Defence Forces. In November 2007, it was announced that $98 million were to be allocated for the development of Arrow 3. By August 2008 the United States and Israeli governments have initiated development of an upper-tier component to the Israeli Air Defense Command, known as Arrow 3, "with a kill ratio of around 99 percent". The development is based on an architecture definition study conducted in 2006–2007, determining the need for the upper-tier component to be integrated into Israel's ballistic missile defense system. According to Arieh Herzog, then Director of Israel Missile Defense Organization (IMDO), the main element of this upper tier will be an exoatmospheric interceptor, to be jointly developed by IAI and Boeing. On February 25, 2013 a fly-out test of the Arrow 3 was conducted from Palmachim Airbase. The launch tested the missile control and engines. In January 18, 2017, Israel’s Missile Defense Organization (IMDO) transferred the first operational Arrow-3 anti-ballistic missile interceptors to the Israeli Air Force.

Technical Data

Missile launcher unit
As the Arrow 2, the missile launcher unit of Arrow 3 long-range anti-ballistic missile system consists of six erector-launchers tubes and ready-to-fire missiles, mounted at the rear of a two axles trailer. In firing position, the launch tubes are erected at the rear of the trailer in vertical position and five hydraulic jacks are lowered on the ground, three at the front and two at the rear.
Missiles
The Arrow 3 missile has two powered stages which is based on hit-to-kill technology out of Earth's atmosphere and will be fitted with a high resolution Electro-Optical (EO) sensor. Israel Aerospace Industries announced in June 2009, that the Arrow 3 patented exoatmospheric interception method includes a two-stage interceptor, like the Arrow 2, but purely based on hit-to-kill technology. The Arrow is faster and more accurate than the Arrow 2 with an extended fire range compared to the Arrow 2. Arrow 3 should be able to intercept ballistic missiles, especially those carrying weapons of mass destruction, at altitudes of over 100 km, and with a reported range of up to 2,400 km. It could also be ship-based
Mobility
As the Arrow 2, the Arrow 3 erector launcher trailer is towed by a military truck.
Command and control vehicles
An Arrow 3 long-range anti-ballistic missile battery includes the ELM-2084 Super Green Pine warning and fire control radar developed by IAI’s Elta Systems, the Citron Tree Battle Management Center and Hazelnut Tree Launcher Control Center developed by Elbit Systems. The new radar EL/M-2084 has both improved range and resolution by up to 50%. The Golden Citron Battle Management Center made by Elbit Systems also received significant new capabilities.
