The Indian Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has resolved glitches in its Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile (QRSAM) system after Army user trials revealed minor issues with the Active Array Battery Multifunction Radar’s ability to engage hovering helicopters at low altitudes and minimum range.
Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) Chairman & Managing Director, Cmde Siddharth Mishra (Retd), has stated that the QRSAM system may undergo further user trials later this year and expects orders from the Indian Army to be placed by the end of 2024.
Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air Missile (QRSAM) is a short-range, all-weather, low-altitude surface-to-air missile system developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) of India. The missile is designed to provide air defence against incoming airborne threats such as enemy aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and cruise missiles.
It is equipped with electronic countermeasures (ECM) to prevent jamming by electronic countermeasures (ECM) and can be operated in autonomous and unattended modes. The QRSAM system is highly mobile and can be deployed quickly on the battlefield. It has a range of up to 30 km and can engage targets at altitudes up to 6 km.
