Israel Successfully Fires New Target Signature System

Israel successfully fired the new RAFAEL-manufactured Blue Sparrow medium-range Ballistic Target system Tuesday morning.  The system simulates trajectory thermal images and radar cross-section signatures of threats.

Military sources said the system will be used in future Arrow Missile systems tests but did not release details as to when or in what context either would be deployed.
