DST-3 is the third series of tests of the Stunner Interceptor for the David’s Sling Weapon System. The information collected is being analyzed by program engineers and will be used for ongoing development and fielding of the David’s Sling Weapon System.

The prime contractor for the David’s Weapon System Program is Rafael, and Raytheon is a sub-contractor. The Multi- Mission Radar is developed by Elta, a subsidiary of IAI. The Battle Management Center known as the Golden Almond, is developed by Elsra, an Elbit subsidiary.

The David’s Sling Weapon System is designed as the middle tier of defense against missiles and rockets, and will improve the active defense architecture of the State of Israel against ballistic missile threats. This test series is a major milestone in the development of the David’s Sling Weapon and provides confidence in future Israeli capabilities to defend against the developing threat.
