IMI Systems (formerly Israel Military Industries) specializes in the development and production of advanced artillery systems. The company last week held a demonstration of its products under the heading, "Artillery Systems - The Next Generation." The demonstration included live fire of Magic Spear - a precise 155-mm rocket with a 40-km range developed by IMI Systems in cooperation with BAE Systems ROKAR.

Also demonstrated were a 120-kg exploding warhead fired on the EXTRA long-range missile designed for attacking high-quality targets at a range of 150 kilometers and an advanced warhead.

The event, held on a test site in southern Israel, was attended by senior officials and industrialists from 17 countries. The demonstration was designed to highlight IMI Systems' advanced capabilities, and to consolidate its status as the world's leading producer of advanced artillery systems of this type.
