Israel Unveils David's Sling Missile System in Paris


Co-developed by US firm Raytheon and Israeli company Rafael, David's Sling is a missile defense system designed to safeguard Israeli citizens from attack. The Sling is capable of intercepting incoming rockets more than 160 kilometres away. Until now all that's been seen of it is a brief video handout of a secret desert test last November. But this week Yossi Horowitz, business development director at Rafael, showed off one of the missiles at the Paris Air Show.
