Israel Navy deploys state-of-the-art missile defense shield
Israel Aerospace Industries announced Sunday that they successfully completed a series of tests of a new missile defense system for the Israel Navy's fleets.
The 'Barak-1' is an advanced system which provides ships with protection against air-to-surface missiles and sea-to-sea missiles in a 360 degree radius around the ship.
The system is also effective against cruise missiles, smart bombs and aerial bombs dropped from airplanes and helicopters.
Four missile trials were held over the past few months in cooperation with the Israeli Navy and a foreign fleet during which navy ships underwent a barrage of incoming missiles.
It was also revealed that the system allows for the firing of missiles vertically, ideal for shooting down targets at distances ranging from 500 meters to 10 kilometers

We probably "accidentally" shipped them the specs in a cargo container filled with Cheerio's or something.
Some prize. All I got was this darned decoder ring! ;)

The total system is beyond the average small countries resources to reproduce.The Software/Firmware with several million lines of code took years to develop and they haven't had that much time.No we gave it to them hardware/code/missiles the total system !

The AN/SPY-1 radar was developed and first deployed in 1973 and entered service in 1983.
We have exported variants of it to many of our "allies".

The SPY1 Is an 'X' band fire control radar and was recently shipped to Israel as part of the ABMS system and linked by satellite into the Japanese Large ABMS system .That system is for large long range space interceptors against ICBM'S from China or Russia.
The Aegis system is ship born and is used for fleet defence against things like 'scuds' and long range air born missile attacks.One of those re targeted and re boosted interceptors recently hit a satellite full of thruster fuel coming in from space .
An AEGIS system uses multiple launch ships and several AEGIS command systems linked by High speed telemetry data channels.The system has the ability of salvoing missiles at targets at long range and assigning each missile to a unique target by data command channel ..
The Aegis Combat System is controlled by an advanced, automatic detect-and-track, multifunction three-dimensional passive electronically scanned array radar, the AN/SPY-1. Known as "the Shield of the Fleet", the SPY high-powered (four megawatt) radar is able to perform search, tracking, and missile guidance functions simultaneously with a track capacity of well over 100 targets at more than 100 nautical miles (190 km).
The Aegis system communicates with the Standard missiles through a radio frequency (RF) uplink using the AN/SPY-1 radar for midcourse guidance of the missile during engagements, but still requires the AN/SPG-62 radar for terminal guidance. This means that with proper scheduling of intercepts, a large number of targets can be engaged simultaneously.
The computer-based command-and-decision element is the core of the Aegis Combat System. This interface makes the ACS capable of simultaneous operation against almost all kinds of threats. The Aegis system is being enhanced to act in a Sea-based Ballistic Missile Defense role, to counter short- and medium-range ballistic missiles of the variety typically employed by rogue states .
On February 14, 2008, U.S. officials announced plans to use a modified SM-3 missile launched from a group of three ships in the North Pacific to destroy the failed American spy satellite USA 193 at an altitude of 130 nautical miles (240 kilometers) shortly before atmospheric reentry, stating that the intention was to "reduce the danger to human beings" due to the release of toxic hydrazine fuel carried onboard.
A spokesperson stated that software associated with the SM-3 has been modified to enhance the chances of the missile's sensors recognizing that the satellite is its target, since the missile was not designed for ASAT operations.
On February 21, 2008 at 3:26 am (UTC) the USS Lake Erie, a Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser, fired a single SM-3 missile, hit and successfully destroyed the satellite USA 193 with a velocity of about 22,783 mph (36,667 km/h) while the satellite was 247 kilometers (133 nautical miles) above the Pacific Ocean.
ANSPY-1 multifunction, phased array, fire control quality radar.
Very rapid transition from SPY-1 silent to full radiate and full situational awareness.
Fast reaction, fully/semiautomatic combat systems. Initial detection to first missile movement in less than 10 sec.
Salvo rate of less than 2 sec per launcher (CG-52 and above with MK 41 VLS)
Mix of multiple SMs.
Max field of fire and min blockage zones
Must illuminate target only for a short duration prior to intercept.
AN/SPY-1 radar variable sensitivity feature allowing radar sensitivity to be tailored to threat RCS, environment, and tactical situation.
Weapons &ID doctrine capable of automatic and semiautomatic response/action.
Doctrine software assists w/ ID IFF.
