Israel, US hold large-scale missile defense drill amid Iran nuclear standoff

September 6, 2022

The Jerusalem Post:

As Iran continues its race toward nuclear power, the Israel Missile Defense Organization (IMDO), the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA), the Israeli Air Defense Command and the US Air and Missile Defense Task Force held a joint simulation training exercise focused on protecting Israel from ballistic threats.

The drill took place in late July at the Israeli Test-Bed (ITB) battle lab, developed by Elisra (a subsidiary of Elbit Systems). The ITB can simulate both Israeli and American air-defense systems and can display and record real-time data to assist in debriefings.

During the simulation training exercise, the Israeli forces operated the Arrow, David’s Sling and Iron Dome air-defense systems. The American forces operated the Patriot, Aegis and THAAD systems.
