India has test fired Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air (QRSAM) short range missile that has a capability of engaging multiple targets.
The missile that has a strike range of 25 km to 30 km, was test fired along the Coast of Odisha, Press Trust of India reported Monday.
Designed to be a quick reaction missile, it involves an all- weather weapon system capable of tracking and firing.
The missile was test-fired at about 11.30 am from a truck-mounted canister launcher from launch complex-3 at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur near here,
Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) officials said that this was the second developmental trial of the missile with an aerial target. The missile has been developed by DRDO and Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL).
The home grown missile was tested for the second time to evaluate performance of canister version as well as its propulsion. The first test launch of the missile was conducted on June 4, from launch pad number 3 of Chandipur.
The missile system has the potential to engage multiple targets within a range of approximately 30 km. It is a quick reaction, all-weather, network-centric missile system capable of search-on-the-move.
Earlier in May, India had also tested a surface-to-air Python and Derby (SPYDER) Missile system.
