Creating a missile 9M317 family was held in accordance with the trend of global missile in terms of anti-aircraft guided medium-range missiles. For a number of parameters 9M317 missile has the best value among similar products. For the first time in its practical shooting was confirmed by the high efficiency of the defeat anti-ship missiles flying at super small (up to 5 m) altitude.
Open architecture means external information support, ease and simplicity requirements to allow the launcher to use them more than a dozen different versions of air defense systems of the Ground Forces and the Navy of Russia and some foreign countries.
Tactical and technical characteristics of the missiles to ensure its effective use in the fight against air attack weapons: the aircraft of all classes of helicopters, including hover, cruise missiles for various purposes, the elements of high-precision weapons. Due to the flexibility of the technical solutions embodied in the onboard equipment missiles and combat means SAM, the first time for complexes with semi-active radar homing able to provide an effective fire on the radio-and surface targets.
Another result of the unification and universality of the rocket was to create on its basis missiles with active radar homing head, ensuring the implementation of the principle of "shot - forgot." This modification SAM 9M317 missile family has come full cycle of working out as part of one of the complexes, applying SAM 9M317. If necessary, after a short OCD, the missile can be adapted to other complexes, using family 9M317 missiles.
Universal missiles 9M317 allow the customer to set up inter-service fleet of missiles in the interest of the supply ship missiles type SAM "Calm" and military-type SAM "Buk". Interspecific missiles park will allow the customer to arrange its effective application, depending on the conditions prevailing at a particular theater, to realize the maneuver means and forces to increase the stability of the rocket and the technical support of the Armed Forces. This makes it possible to significantly save material resources for maintenance.
PJSC "SPDE" extensive use of the concept of integrated software family 9M317 missile operation, involves the provision of a full range of customer services. At the heart of this system - services, providing assistance in the delivery of programs rockets management programs supply to operate, service to provide test equipment, materials, solution engineering and industrial issues, assistance in contract work and the implementation of welfare programs, the required level of quality of our products.
