    NE India to purchase additional party ZRK "Spider" worth 800 million dollars
    25/08/2009

    More news on these subjects, you can see on the personal pages of those

    MOSCOW, August 24. (ARMS-TASS). After a lengthy evaluation period the Ministry of Defense of India approved a contract for the purchase of new mobile SAM QRSAM (Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile), designed to provide air defense units, armored columns, as well as key infrastructure, the ground forces of the country, reports the Times of India " .

    The program QRSAM planned to buy complexes worth nearly 40 billion rupees (about 820 million dollars) to equip three regiments.

    Council for Defense Procurement, chaired by Defense Minister AK Anthony discussed the purchase of complexes last week. Despite the absence of official statements, according to sources, the Times of India ", the winner was the Israeli company Rafael, which offered short-range mobile SAM system" Spider ".

    The decision to purchase the Israeli complex was taken due to the fact that established by the Defense Research and Development (DRDO) of India Ministry of Defense, national short-range SAMs, Trishul and Akash does not satisfy the requirements of the Army.

    The program to buy complexes QRSAM, intended to replace the systems operated Osa-AKM and Strela-10M Soviet production is carried out over the last few years, but the MoD did not give approval to the signing of a contract for the supply of SAM "Spider" because of the continuing against Israeli firms IAI and Rafael "investigation of corruption in the procurement of SAM Barak-1 at a cost of 11.60 billion rupees. Despite the suspicions, the Indian government failed to make the Israeli companies in the "black list" and continued implementation of critical importance to the country's defense of joint projects.

    In particular, in late August last year, the Defense Procurement Board approved an agreement for the purchase of SAM "Spider" for the Indian Air Force. The contract with Raphael for the supply of the country's air force 18 Mobile "Spider" was signed on Sept. 1, 2008. The total cost of the agreement amounted to 260.05 million dollars (about 11377,1875 billion rupees). It is planned that the supply of SAM "Spider" will start in 2,5 years since the signing of the agreement and will be completed in four years.

    ZRK "Spider", developed by a consortium of Israeli companies, Rafael and IAI, is a mobile all-weather complex near radius of action, designed to detect and destroy aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles, UAVs and precision munitions. The complex can be used for air defense of strategic facilities, including military bases, points of contact, nuclear power plants, government and other buildings.

    Launchers oblique launch SAM "Spider-SR", mounted on a wheeled chassis 6x6, calculated to four missiles. As a weapon uses a combination of ground-based version of SD medium-range Derby air-to-air missiles with active radar-guided missiles and "Python-5 short-range with IR guidance. SAM can be operated in the mode of capture target before launch and after launch SAM-type "fire-and-forget" or with the correction of target data in flight. Time embattled after detection of the target is 5 seconds.

    Model division "Spider" consists of one item, a mobile command and control fire, and four to six mobile launchers with optical sensors TOPLITE. Item management is equipped with Three-radar EL/M-2106 ATAR development IAI / "Elta, capable of simultaneously tracking 60 targets at range 35 km, and two terminal operator with data transmission systems to exchange information with rocket launchers, SAMs and neighbors command a higher level of 100 km distance.

    ZRK "Spider-SR" is capable of hitting targets in the Gaza 360 deg. at a range of 1 to 15 km and a height of 20 m to 9 m. The system is capable of thousands of hit singles and team goal at any time and any climatic conditions.

    "Rafael has also developed a SAM Spider-MR" medium-range missiles, which can hit targets within a radius of 50 km at an altitude of 20 m to 16 km. Unlike "Spider-SR", launched "Spider-MR" equipped with 8 vertical launch missiles. Missiles launched from the use of boosters. In addition, in the "Spider-MR" is a new radar MF-STAR joint IAI / "Elta with a range of up to 100 km. Time shelling target after its detection is 2 seconds.

    In addition, the company currently Raphael, together with Indian companies launched a joint project to establish working for the Army of India ADMS medium / long-range (MR / LR-SAM) of new generation, the potential cost that could reach 100 billion rupees (2 , 5 billion).

    Indian Ballistic Missile Defence Programme:

    Post  IDB on Fri Nov 21, 2014 4:51 am

    A senior Israeli defence ministry official who is currently in New Delhi has informed the Ministry of Defence that Israel is ready to tweak it sophisticated, all-weather mobile air defence system, the Iron Dome to meet India's security needs.

    The hi-tech Iron Dome system is designed to intercept and destroy short range rockets and artillery shells fired at its borders. However the India's requirements are different and it would not require the Iron Dome to stop rockets and artillery shells at the border. Israel has a sizeable population that borders with Palestine from where rockets are fired and that is not the case with India.

    Indian cities are located further inland and not close to Pakistani borders. The Israeli official said that Israel would modify the Iron Dome system to protect Indian cities from any kind of aerial threat. Israel is ready to work with India to increase the interception range of the Iron Dome Missile, make it capable to detect and intercept LACM's (Land Attack Cruise Missile) which can be fired from Pakistan in the event of a war and also intercept heavier long range rockets from Multi-Barrel Rocket Launchers (MBRL). The Iron Dome system has successfully destroyed an incoming Grad rocket fired from a launcher from Gaza a few years ago.

    If Israel's Iron Dome would be capable of intercepting rockets and missiles that are in possession with Pakistan then it would definitely get the attention and impress the Military decision makers in New Delhi.

    Israel a few years ago had offered the Iron Dome Missile Defence System to the Indian Armed Forces but the Indian Air Force had turned down the offer saying that the system does not cater to India's threat environment and it requires major modifications to meet Indian needs. There are rumours that the MoD wants to place the Iron Dome batteries around strategic assets to protect them from aerial threats but no official statement has been made.

    The DRDO too has been working on a Short Range Interceptor which will be capable of detecting and destroying incoming enemy cruise missiles, conventional artillery and short rage battlefield ballistic missiles which Pakistan has been pursuing to counter India's dreaded Cold Start Doctrine.

    DRDO's interceptor will be able to provide a shield against incoming Pakistani missiles to advancing conventionally superior Indian forces that will cut Pakistan into half in less than a week. There are inside reports that the DRDO's interceptor is planned for testing in early 2016. It is planned for induction and mass scale production for the armed forces by 2018.

    If India with its current politics further tries to play double game among countries that not only hate India but also do not want any economical or military powers on the global stage and still try to benefit from BRICS in development, good economy relations with resourceful and rich nations it will slow down its development and reduce its military capability.

    Sitting between two chairs trying to get everything will only lead one thing that it loses both chairs and will fall on its rear.

    If India wants good Air Defense there is only one address for greatest AD technology and that is russia, Israel does not hold any capability nor MIC to performe or create any serious capable ADS.

    the problem of course is that an Iron Dome battery has how many missiles?


    A Grad battery has 40 rockets on each vehicle and assuming it has 6-8 vehicles that means the Iron Dome system is going to run out of interceptor missiles fairly quickly against even a small attack.

    Grad rockets are relatively cheap and can be used in enormous numbers... it would be fairly easy to use several Grad trucks to deplete the Iron Dome before the real attack missiles are fired...

    Iron Dome is not a complete solution... you need an integrated air defence network that is linked with air power... when the Grads start being launched you need to be firing your own counter battery weapons to take out the launchers as well as shooting down the incoming threats.

    India and Israel have “now virtually sealed the joint development of a medium-range surface-to-air missile system (MRSAM) for the Indian Army.”

    The first tranche of the deal will be worth over 9,000 crore (roughly $1.67 billion), The MRSAMs, which will be on mobile launchers, will serve as India’s

    replacement for the Russian-built Kvadrat and OSA-AKM systems that India purchased in the 1970s and 1980s. India has been searching the open market

    for replacements for some years now, and previously rejected other offers because they didn’t contain sufficient technology transfer clauses

    Indian Navy test-fires missile developed with Israel


    NEW DELHI: The Indian Navy on Tuesday test-fired the Barak 8 long range surface to air missile (LRSAM) for the first time from an Indian warship, after its successful test from an Israeli naval platform last month.

    Tests of the LRSAM system, jointly developed by the DRDO and IAI Israel, started on Tuesday from INS Kolkata, and will continue on Wednesday, the Indian Navy said.

    "IN (Indian Navy) gears up for maiden firing of Long Range Surface2Air msl 4m INS Kolkata... (sic)," navy spokesperson Captain D.K. Sharma tweeted.

    The LRSAM system has been jointly developed by the DRDO and IAI Israel.

    The system is to be deployed as the major missile system on the largest indigenously-built warship, INS Kolkata, which was inducted into the navy last year.

    In November, the missile was successfully test-fired for the first time from an Israeli naval platform.

    The LRSAM programme consists of missiles, weapon control system, MFSTAR radar), vertical launcher unit and two-way data link.

    It will also be deployed on other naval ships including the recently commissioned INS Kamrota.

    Stage Set for User Trials of Akash Missile from Today

    Post  Pinto on Thu Jan 28, 2016 3:18 pm

    BALASORE: A series of user trials of surface-to-air supersonic Akash missile system will be carried out from a defence test facility off the Odisha coast from Thursday. Reliable sources said, the tests will be conducted from launching complex-III of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) in Chandipur, about 15 km from here. The indigenously developed missile air defence system has been produced by Bharat Electronics Ltd. “A couple of tests has been planned on Thursday and Friday. The tests assume significance as those would be first in the series after the induction of the missile in the armed forces - Army and Air Force,” said a defence official.

    Akash is a mobile, multiple- target handling and medium range air defence missile developed under Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme (IGMDP) of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). After years of rejection, allegedly for faults in the missile system, the Army had agreed to accept the modified version of the missile, which was formally inducted in the Army on May 5 last year. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had handed over the missile to the Air Force on July 10. Along with 13 DRDO laboratories, 19 public sector units, five ordinance factories, three national laboratories and six academic institutions, Defence Research and Development Laboratory (DRDL) successfully partnered with more than 265 private industries across the country to produce Akash.

    IAF Conducts Successful Trial of Akash Missile

    Post  Pinto on Fri Jan 29, 2016 1:46 pm


    BALASORE: After a ‘failed’ test on Tuesday, Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel successfully carried out another user trial of surface-to-air missile Akash from Integrated Test Range (ITR) off the Odisha coast on Wednesday. The missile targeted an aircraft, which mimicked the enemy fighter aircraft.

    The indigenously developed sophisticated sleek missile having a strike range of 30 km was fired from the launching complex-III of the ITR at about 1.15 pm. On Tuesday, the missile had failed to hit the target. Prior to the launch of the missile in fully operational configuration, a lightweight and multirole aircraft Mirage was flown in a simulated coordination.

    A DRDO official said the test was conducted as part of the operational exercise. Radars, sensors and telemetry tracking systems positioned at different locations tracked and monitored the missile’s trajectory parameters. “The mission met all parameters set by the user,” he said.

    While the DRDO provided all logistic supports, IAF teams operated the deliverable Akash missile system including the target. The missile was successfully guided by multi-function phased array radar developed by Electronics and Radar Development Establishment (LRDE), a DRDO Lab and produced by Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL).

    The missile used for the test was picked up randomly from the assembly line after production. As claimed by DRDO it has achieved single digit accuracy reaching close to zero circular error probability (CEP). The entire flight path of the missile was smooth in accordance with pre-decided coordinates.

    Akash, one of the five missiles developed under Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme (IGMDP), has already been inducted in the Air Force while the missile’s Army version is in the final stage of induction into the armed forces.

    Even as the Air Force accepted the Akash missile system as a substantial part of its arsenal in February 2010, the missile was officially inducted into the Indian Air force at function at Hyderabad on March 3, 2012. The missile has been successfully tested several times at both high and low altitudes against maneuvering targets at extreme ranges.

    Defence sources said the Akash system is fully mobile and capable of protecting a moving convoy of vehicles. While the system was primarily designed as an air defence surface-to-air missile, it also has been earlier tested in a missile defence role. The system provides air defence coverage for an area of 2,000 sq km.

    The missile has been developed by Defence Research and Development Laboratory (DRDL) along with 13 other DRDO Laboratories and produced by Bharat Dynamics Limited. Its launcher has been developed by R&DE (Engineers), a DRDO lab and produced by Tata Power and L&T.

    http://www.newindianexpress.com/nation/IAF-Conducts-Successful-Trial-of-Akash-Missile/2014/08/13/article2377939.ece

    The Indian Air Force (IAF) successfully conducted user trials of medium range supersonic Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) ‘Akash’ from a defence base off the Odisha coast on Thursday. Three rounds of the missile were fired within three hours targeting para-barrels.

    The missiles were launched from the launching complex-III of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur-on-sea between 11 am and 2 pm. Tests were aimed at gauging the flight consistency and effectiveness of the missile, besides ascertaining the serviceability of the system in various conditions.


    A defence official said the mission boosted the air defence shield of the country and re-validated the weapon’s operational efficiency. During the trial, the missiles were aimed at intercepting the floating para barrels at a definite altitude over the Bay of Bengal. The entire flight of Akash was captured by electro-optical tracking systems.



    The armed forces are scheduled to carry out a couple of more tests in the next few days.

    Akash’ is a medium-range surface-to-air missile and it can reach targets 30 km away. The 5.8-metre-long sleek missile has a launch weight of 720 kg and can carry a warhead of 50 kg.



    It can handle multiple targets with the help of a digitally coded command and guidance system. It is fuelled by solid propellants. It can also be fired from tracked vehicles. While its land variant was inducted in the Army in May last year, the Air Force version was formally handed over to the IAF in July.

    Indian Army Seeks New Source of Surface-to-Air Missile Defense System

    The Indian Army is lobbying to purchase quick reaction surface-to-air missile systems (QRSAM) because the homemade Akash air defense system is slower and ineffective while on the move, an army official said.

    "The reaction time of Akash is longer and has a radar coverage less than 360 degrees. QRSAMs are needed to defend formations in the forward tactical battlefield area whereas Akash is being used for guarding its assets located in deeper areas inside the country," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    Rahul Bhonsle, a retired Indian Army brigadier general, said: "Akash is suited for static air defense where the response time may be longer, thus the same may not be suitable for employment in the tactical battle area given the need for quick reaction and speedy engagements. Moreover, it appears that the Army also wants a mobile AD system whereas the Akash may not be as agile and also has a larger footprint."

    No Ministry of Defense (MoD) official would comment on the Indian Army's demand that MoD purchase a surface-to-air missile system to supplement the Akash.


    "This is one of the major indigenous programs that has been shot down by the Army. Better coordination between the design and development agencies and the Army is crucial to prevent such occurrences and salvage Make in India,” said Ankur Gupta, an analyst with Ernst and Young India. The Make in India policy's goal is to reduce weapon imports from 70 percent of acquisitions to about 50 percent in the next 10 years.

    Since the only Indian-made Trishul surface-to-air system, developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), was dumped 10 years ago because of technical failures, the only option is to import a system, the Indian Army official said.

    After the Trishul system failed, the Indian Air Force imported the Spyder from Rafael Advanced Defense Systems of Israel and subsequently acquired the Akash system as well.

    The Indian Army has acquired only the Akash, worth over $2.5 billion, but floated a $1.5 billion tender to acquire more systems.

    It was issued to global and domestic defense companies, including Russia’s Rosoboronexport, Raytheon of the United States, Israel Aerospace Industries, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, Tetraedr of Belarus, South Korea’s Doosan Group and LIG Nex1, Thales and Eurosam of France, Diehl Defense of Germany, and pan-European MBDA.


    However, no MoD official would comment on the status of procurement.

    A tender issued in 2008 had poor response from overseas defense companies because of issues regarding the transfer of technology, and the technical features of the requirement. Only Rafael had been selected after technical evaluation, and the tender had to be withdrawn because it was on a single vendor basis.
