India on Monday successfully test-fired an indigenously developed short range and Quick Reaction Surface to Air missile (QRSAM) from Chandipur along the Odisha coast. The surface-to-air missile was test fired from launch complex-3 at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at about 11.25 a.m. from a truck-mounted canister launcher, said official sources.
The state-of-the-art missile has a strike range of 20-30 km and is capable of engaging multiple targets. The missile has been developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and other establishments.
The missile was tested for a second time to evaluate the performance of its canister version. The first test was conducted on June 4.
