Israeli Ministry of Defence, The Israeli Ministry of Defense's DRDD (Defense Research and Development Directorate) has selected Rafeal Armament Development Authority and Raytheon for Short- Range Ballistic Missile interceptor development to defeat a variety of low-cost, short range ballistic missile threats. 
 
The proposal was evaluated and chosen by the Israeli DRDD and the American missile Defense Agency (MDA) over a competing proposal of Israel Aircraft industries (IAI) and Boeing. 
 
The Short Range Ballistic Missile Defense program is an IMOD initiative to address the proliferating threat of short- range ballistic threats consisting of missiles and rockets that are cheap, plentiful and easily concealed. 
 
Pursuant to this selection, a feasibility study will be conducted. However, no decision has been made yet concerning a full scale development.
