IAI and DRDO Successfully Completed Series of MRSAM Air & Missile Defense System Trials in India

  Boaz Levy – IAI’s President & CEO                                                                      MRSAM trial in India

The trials included a series of four MRSAM interceptions – two by the land-based MRSAM system, and two by the naval-based MRSAM system, operated from Indian Navy ships

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), together with India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), successfully completed a series of trials that resulted in four successful interceptions  by the jointly-developed MRSAM Air and Missile Defense System. The interceptions were carried out in an operational setting against various scenarios, at different interception ranges, interception heights and challenging angles. The systems were operated by India’s Air Force and Navy, alongside DRDO and IAI engineers.

The MRSAM provides an integrative solution that includes an advanced, fully digital Phased Array Radar, a command and control center, mobile launchers, and highly energetic interceptors with advanced RF Seeker. The system was tested in India by both Israeli and Indian officers together with engineers and experts. The overall system as well as all the system components satisfied the customer’s expectations. As part of the trial, two interceptors were launched from a portable land-based system and two others from a naval-based system, operated from Indian Navy ships. The threats were detected by the system’s radar, acquired by the interceptor, and successfully intercepted. All the system components completed the trial successfully, as planned.
