DRDO and Indian Army successfully complete six flight-tests of Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile system

Defence Research and Development Organisation DRDO and Indian Army have successfully completed six flight-tests of Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile QRSAM system from Integrated Test Range Chandipur off the Odisha coast. The flight tests were conducted as part of evaluation trials by the Indian Army.

The flight-tests were carried out against high-speed aerial targets mimicking various types of threats to evaluate the capability of the weapon systems under different scenarios including long range medium altitude, short range, high altitude manoeuvring target, low radar signature with receding and crossing target and salvo launch with two missiles fired in quick succession. The system performance was also evaluated under day and night operation scenarios.

During these tests, all the mission objectives were met establishing pin-point accuracy of the weapon system with state-of-the-art guidance and control algorithms including warhead chain. The performance of the system has been confirmed from the data captured by a number of Range instruments like Telemetry, Radar and Electro Optical Tracking Systems deployed by ITR. Senior officials from DRDO and the Indian Army participated in the launches.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has complimented DRDO and Indian Army on the successful flight trials. He exuded confidence that the QRSAM weapon system will be an excellent force multiplier for the Armed Forces.

Chairman DRDO Samir V Kamat has congratulated the teams associated with the successful series of trials and said that the system is now ready for induction into the Indian Army.
