Joint Technology to Indian Navy Ships 22 May, 2017

India awarded a $630 million contract to Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) for supply of LRSAM air & missile defence systems. The company revealed yesterday the contract was signed with Indian government company BHARAT ELECTRONICS LIMITED, covering the integration of the system on four ships of the Indian Navy. The system was successfully tested last week in India as part of operational interception trial aboard India's navy ship. 

LRSAM is an advanced air and missile defence system, a unique joint development by IAI and India's Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO). Already operational with the Indian Air Force, Indian Navy and Israel Defence Forces, the system features advanced phased-array radar (MFSTAR), command and control system, launchers and missiles with advanced RF seekers.
