IAI enters into agreements to supply MRSAM to India’s navy E-mail

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has announced that it has entered into agreements worth US$93 million for the provision of Naval MRSAM (Medium Range Surface-toAir Missile) systems.

Under the contracts with the Indian Navy and Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL), IAI will provide complementary systems for the air defence system (ADS). They involve follow-up orders for a range of maintenance and other services for various sub-systems of IAI’s advanced MSRAM ADS.

In January the Indian Navy, in collaboration with IAI, held an interception test aboard INS Chennai to assess, for the first time, the potential collaboration between ships. The interception scenario, which was executed successfully, demonstrated how the operational force of the defence system can be doubled regionally, rather than topically.

Boaz Levi, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Systems, Missiles & Space Group, said: “The follow-up orders provide additional evidence of the satisfaction and trust of our Indian partners with respect to the MRSAM family. The test demonstrated the advanced technological capabilities of the air defence system as well as our collaboration between IAI, its partners in India’s Navy, the local Indian industry and our colleagues at IAI’s ELTA and RAFAEL. This is a badge of honour for the entire Israeli industry.”
