India on Sunday successfully test-fired an indigenously developed quick reaction surface-to-air short range missile (QR-SAM) from a test range along the Odisha coast.
Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), QR-SAM was test-fired at about 12.40 pm from a truck-mounted canister launcher from launch complex-1 at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur near here, official sources told PTI.
It was a developmental trial of the state-of-the-art missile, which engaged an aerial target successfully, they said.
The missile, which has a strike range of 20 to 30 kms, is capable of engaging multiple targets. Designed to be a quick reaction missile, it is an all-weather weapon system capable of tracking and firing, the sources said.
Some more rounds of trial of the weapon system are expected to be conducted in the near future from the same test range.
