India’s Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is seeking industry collaboration to develop a crucial component for its next-generation air defense system, the Very Short Range Air Defense System (VSHORADS).

VSHORADS, indigenously designed and developed by DRDO’s Research Centre Imarat (RCI) in collaboration with other DRDO labs and industry partners, is a man-portable missile system for neutralizing low-altitude aerial threats.

The key element DRDO seeks an industry partner for is a remotely operated, 360-degree swiveling launcher for the VSHORADS. This launcher will boast two missile tubes, with the capability to fire missiles at one-second intervals.

VSHORADS missiles are propelled by dual-thrust solid motors, designed for optimal portability and ease of use by soldiers. The launcher design also prioritizes portability to ensure a seamlessly mobile air defense system.

The Indian Army has expressed interest in integrating VSHORADS not only in its man-portable configuration but also mounted on Light Military Vehicles, further enhancing its operational flexibility.
