(Worthy News) - The Israeli Air Force on Wednesday was set to receive its first David's Sling batteries, the cutting-edge midrange missile defense system that has been in development since 2006 in a joint Israeli-American venture.

The system became operational in late December after completing a series of successful tests. Its delivery to the IAF will be gradual, with its radar and command and control components delivered ahead of the interceptor systems. The process is expected to be completed within a few weeks.

David's Sling, considered one of the most advanced interceptor systems in the world, was developed by Israel's Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and U.S.-based Raytheon Co. The radar was developed by ELTA Systems, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries, and the command and control systems were developed by the Elisra Group, a subsidiary of defense electronics manufacturer Elbit Systems.
