Description: The Barak 8 Air and Missile Defense (AMD) system is an advanced all-weather, day/night system capable of multiple simultaneous engagements in complex scenarios. This air defense system provides a 360-degree defense against a wide variety of airborne platforms and munitions from short to medium ranges. The Barak 8 AMD was developed as a shipborne air defense system for the Israeli Navy and to foreign customers. In June 2009, IAI announced the launch of a land-based version for an undisclosed export customer. It will be equipped with a digital Active Electronic Steering Array (AESA) MF-STAR system which incorporates new, advanced technologies and includes one rotating S-band phased array antenna.
The Barak 8 AMD includes a battle management, command, control, communication and intelligence center (BMC4I); vertical launch system with Barak 8 interceptor missiles; and a multi-function surveillance, track & guidance radar (MF-STAR). The BMC4I offers both stand alone operation for a single fire unit, and joint task force coordination (JTC). The Barak 8 interceptor missile can intercept at short and medium ranges. It is dual pulsed and has an advanced seeker, providing all-weather, day/night engagements in complex saturation scenarios.
