As part of evaluation trials by the Army, India has successfully completed six flight tests of the Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile (QRSAM) system from the Integrated Test Range in Chandipur off the coast of Odisha, the DRDO reported on Thursday. According to the statement, the flight tests were conducted using fast-moving aerial targets to simulate various threats in order to assess how well the weapon systems would perform in those circumstances.
The Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) released a statement claiming that all mission goals were achieved during the testing, establishing pinpoint precision of the weapon system with cutting-edge guidance and control algorithms, including warhead chain. According to ITR, data from a variety of range instruments, including telemetry, radar, and electro optical tracking systems (EOTS), have verified the system’s functionality.
According to the statement, the tests were carried out with the missile’s final deployment configuration, which included all locally developed sub-systems, a mobile launcher, a fully automated command and control system, as well as surveillance and multi-function radars. The missile also had an indigenous Radio Frequency (RF) seeker.
According to the DRDO, the QRSAM armament system is special in that it can work while moving while having search and track capabilities and fire after a brief halt.
Rajnath Singh, the Indian Army’s chief of staff, praised the DRDO and the Indian Army for the successful flight tests. According to the announcement, the system is now prepared for entry into the Army.
