    Barak 8 is a very important project for the Indian Armed forces,it will provide India the much required medium/long range air defence/point defence to protect her strategic land base assets and well to project the navy as a blue water capable, the Kolkata class is designed to include the MF-STAR radar component and would carry 32 to 64 Barak 8's, the Kolkata class should be escorting the Aircraft carriers, the radar seeker used in the missile and the MF-STAR AESA Radar are important technologies that India is benefiting from the collaboration. India is contribution with the rocket system, the dual pulse smokeless solid rocket motor is also a vital component that gives the missile the needed thrust to engage the target.

    Without the Barak 8 Indian Aircraft carriers are not going to the blue waters.

    India need to invest and R&D on seeker and Radar technology.

    look mate our relation with Israel is more that that of a buyer-seller relationship.India is Israel's strongest ally in asia.n if the israelis wanted to do pure business they could have easily sold their weapons to pakistan or china(i know that they helped the chipandas in developing the j-10 fighter,but that was in the 90s.)Israelis consider us as their close friend n strategic partners so they r sellling us all their advanced weaponry for the last 17 yrs.but on a serious note israeli weapons rock!:fans:

    Barak missile systems are ship-borne point-defense missile system against aircraft, anti-ship missiles, and UAVs.So yes its only for Navy.

    Barak-8 is also capable of intercepting cruise missiles like Yakhont or CJ-10K.

    Control navigation tests of LR-SAM conducted in Israel successful

    Bangalore: Indian and Israeli missile scientists achieved a breakthrough with the successful control navigation tests (CNTs) of the Long-Range Surface to Air Missile (LR-SAM). Being jointly developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI), the Rs 2,606-crore Project LR-SAM aims to develop an advanced naval air defence system for Indian Navy’s P-15A Kolkata Class destroyers. The missile has a range of 70 km, weighing around 275 kg. Interestingly, both the DRDO and the IAI officials succeeded in keeping the test schedule and its results under wraps for over a month.

    Sources confirm to Express that the CNTs were held at one of the test ranges of IAI near Tel Aviv on July 16 and July 18. “Earlier tests (inclined launches) were to ascertain the ballistic performance and now we have done the CNTs. The latest tests (vertical launches) are initial steps towards validation of the systems. We will now have another set of tests with seeker and guidance systems, scheduled to be held in Israel, at the end of this year (December). This should pave way for production,” sources said.
    During the recent tests, the missiles have reportedly shown good navigation and control performance, achieving all mission objectives. The missiles followed the text-book flight trajectories and all the onboard algorithms performed as designed. “We are excited about the test results as both the front and rear servo actuation systems performed as expected. The launcher performance and the critical vertical launch process were also achieved,” sources said.

    The final validation tests are expected to begin in India by early 2013, followed user trials from the ships. “This is a very important joint venture weapon development project for India and Israel. We are developing a new weapon and there were some hiccups, which we have overcome now. The completion of CNTs shifts the focus to home-on-target tests and subsequent delivery of the LR-SAM systems to Indian Navy,” sources said.

    Hyderabad-based Defence Research and Development Laboratory (DRDL), a top-rated DRDO lab, is spearheading LR-SAM’s activities from the Indian side. The missile had its first successful ballistic flight test (short-range) in Israel in May 2010. The rear section of the missile is being developed by DRDL and the front section by IAI.

    Naval sources tell Express that the weapon system, including radar, is currently being integrated on the first ship at Mazagon Dock Limited, Mumbai.

    How does it fair against the Russian S-300 or S-400? Am told they're the best there is in SAM tech. BTW, do we have S-300 batteries?

    S-300 and 400
    are suited for ballistic missile threats better

    while Barak is suited against ariel vehicles

    we have S-300

    Russia has offered S-400 as well
