Indian navy successfully tests live fire missile developed by IAI E-mail

The Indian Navy has conducted for the first time a successful live firing test of a medium-range Surface to Air Missile (SAM), which has been developed with Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (IAI).

The Indian Navy said that it had “achieved a significant milestone in enhancing its anti-air warfare capability with the maiden cooperative engagement firing of the SAM. The firing was undertaken last month on the Western Seaboard by Indian Naval ships Kochi and Chennai, wherein the missiles of both ships were controlled by one ship to intercept different aerial targets at extended ranges.”

The SAM system is based on IAI’s Barak 8, an operational advanced missile defense system used by Israel’s navy as well as by India’s navy, air, and land forces. It provides broad aerial and point-defense against a wide range of threats to the marine arena from the air, sea, or land. The system integrates several advanced state-of-the-art systems, such as digital radar, command and control, launchers, and system-wide connectivity.
