A Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile (MRSAM) was successfully test-fired today from the Integrated Test Range off Odisha Coast. The MRSAM is jointly developed by DRDO and IAI of Israel for the Indian Air Force. The missile guided by a Radar system and on-board avionics successfully hit a Pilotless target aircraft.
Many Indian industries like BEL, L&T, BDL, TATA group of companies besides other private industries have contributed to the development of a number of subsystems which have been put into use in this flight test. The MRSAM system provides reliable air defence at medium ranges.
I congratulate @DRDO_India & Industry teams for the successful flight test of MRSAM (Medium Range Surface to Air Missile) weapon system.
