India's 'QRSAM' Rapid Reaction Air Defense System

New Delhi - The Indian Army and the Indian Army and Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) have successfully conducted six flight tests of the Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile (QRSAM).

Tests were carried out at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) in Chandipur, off the coast of Odisha. This latest test is part of the Indian Army's evaluation trial. They also perform a final deployment configuration showing all locally developed sub-systems.

The Indian Ministry of Defense said the QRSAM system was tested against several high-speed air targets and the results were very accurate. Authorities assessed the weapon system's various capabilities including its ability to maneuver targets at medium and short range high altitudes.

Missiles were also tested under scenarios such as low radar signature, with receding and crossing targets, and salvo launches with two missiles fired in succession.

In the test, the performance of the QRSAM system was evaluated under day and night scenarios. It said range instruments including telemetry, radar and electro-optical tracking systems managed to record flight test data. QRSAM is capable of operating on the move with its search and tracking features and can fire in no time. Those features were validated during a recent mobility trial.

QRSAM's native sub-systems include radio frequency finder, automatic command and control system, mobile launcher, surveillance, and radar. Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said the QRSAM weapon system would be an excellent force multiplier for the Armed Forces.
