India successfully test fires Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air Missile

India successfully test-fired a Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air Missile (QRSAM) with 30-kilometre range from a test range off the Odisha coast. The missile successfully engaged its target during the flight test and met all the desired parameters. The missile was successfully flight tested against live aerial targets on August 4, 2019, from ITR, Chandipur. Two missiles have been tested against two live targets meeting complete mission objectives of engaging the targets. Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the missile has a strike range of 25 km to 30 km. It uses solid-fuel propellant and has the capability of engaging multiple targets. Odisha: DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) today successfully flight tested Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile (QRSAM) air defence system at Balasore flight test range. The systems have been tested in final configuration with RADAR mounted on a vehicle and missiles on the launcher. The missiles with many states of the art technologies have engaged the targets at different ranges and altitudes. The systems are equipped with indigenously developed phased array radar, Inertial Navigation System, Data Link and RF seeker. The system is being developed for the Indian Army with search and track on move capability with very short reaction time. The entire mission was captured by various Electro-Optical Tracking Systems, Radar Systems and Telemetry Systems at ITR Chandipur. The sophisticated all-weather missile was test-fired from launch pad-3 of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur at around 11.05 a.m., said sources. The missile is equipped with electronic countermeasures against jamming by aircraft radars, sources added. (With agency inputs)
