The Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile (QRSAM) system flight tests for India were successfully completed on Thursday off the coast of Odisha.
The flight tests were carried out as part of evaluation trials by the Indian Army, claims the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO).

To assess the capability of the weapon systems under various scenarios, including long-range medium altitude, short-range high, altitude manoeuvring target, low radar signature with receding and crossing target, and salvo launch with two missiles fired in rapid succession, flight tests were conducted against high-speed aerial targets simulating various types of aerial threats.
Additionally, the system’s performance was assessed in both daytime and nighttime operation conditions.

All mission goals were achieved during these tests, proving that the QRSAM weapon system has pinpoint precision thanks to cutting-edge guidance and control algorithms that include the warhead chain.

Data from a variety of Range equipment, including Telemetry, Radar, and Electro-Optical Tracking Systems (EOTS) deployed by ITR, have been used to corroborate the system’s performance.

Senior representatives from the Indian Army and DRDO took part in the launch.

The missile with an indigenous RF seeker, the mobile launch Electro-Optical Tracking Systemcher, the fully automated command and control system, the observation and multi-function Radars, and other subsystems were all components of the final deployment configuration used for these tests.

The QRSAM weapon system stands out because it has the ability to search and track while moving and fire after a brief halt. The prior mobility tests undertaken have proven this.
