The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) successfully test-fired an indigenously developed Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air-Missile (QRSAM). The missile was flight tested from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) in Chandipur, off Odisha Coast at 11.30 a.m. “All the technologies and subsystems incorporated in the missile have performed well, meeting all the mission requirements. All the radars, electro optical systems, telemetry systems and other stations have tracked the missile and monitored all the parameters,” DRDO said in a statement. This is the second test of the QRSAM. It was tested for the first time on June 4. The new missile will complement the existing Akash short range SAM (surface-to-air missile) with a range of 25 kilometres which has already been inducted into the services.
