An IAF F-15 fighter jet taking part in the test fired a target projectile, nicknamed "blue sparrow," and the radar successfully detected it and sent the relevant data to the Arrow's command and control center.

Defense sources said that the test was carried out according to the military's perennial work-plan.


"This test is a milestone the Arrow-4 system's upgrade, ahead of its delivery to the IAF," a security source added.
