Indian Air Force (IAF) and Ministry of Defence have issued a Request for Information (RFI) to procure approximately Quantity 50-100 Medium Range Loitering Munition (MRLM) from registered Indian vendors. MRLM is required to avoid enemy Air Defence and still maintain a high probability of hitting the targets.
IAF is seeking loitering munition with EO and IR sensors for day and night capability with an operational requirement to neutralize targets within the range of 150+ km across the border. the loitering munition is expected to go undetected in enemy territory to neutralize targets of tactical importance closer to the borders.
MRLM should be mobile, easy to deploy in less than 15 minutes and operable by a crew of two with canister-based storage and a launch system that has a ceiling of 6km and RCS <0.5m2 will ability to integrate with the IAF network.
