Israel Aerospace Industries has a $50 million to provide the Indian Navy and MDL Shipyard with complementary Naval MRSAM (Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile) systems worth $50 million.
Under the contract, IAI will provide a range of maintenance and other services for various sub-systems of IAIs advanced MSRAM air defence system (ADS).
IAI EVP and general manager Systems, Missiles & Space Group Boaz Levi said, “Only recently we have successfully completed a multi-system trial in India that demonstrated the advanced technological centralized management capabilities of the ADS. This contract advances us from system development and delivery to looking after the operational needs of our customers,” according to an IAI statement.
The MRSAM family is an operational air-defense system used by Israel's navy as well as by Indias naval, air and ground forces. It has been uniquely developed by IAI in collaboration with Israel's Ministry of defense, Indias Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), IAIs ELTA group, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. and additional companies in India and Israel.
To date, more than $6 billion worth of MRSAM systems have been sold worldwide. MRSAM provides broad as well as topical defense against a range of assault air, marine and ground threats and comprises several key state-of-the-art systems, including a digital radar, command and control, launchers, and interceptors with advanced homing seekers.
