    Indo-Israeli LR-SAM Naval Test This Year

    [​IMG]

    Delayed by over four years, but this one is truly better late than never. In what will be a significant boost to the Indian Navy’s quest for a credible air defence system deployable on its frontline vessels and aircraft carriers, the Indo-Israeli long-range surface-to-air missile (LR-SAM) system will be tested in a naval configuration towards the end of this year, reveals the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Chief Dr Avinash Chander.

    The missile underwent a first test from a land launcher in 2010, and has since been tested an unspecified number of times. The collaborative programme, involving Israeil Aerospace Industries Limited (IAI), DRDO and the navies of India and Israel is criticial to modernisation of the surface fleet.

    The LR-SAM test will take place at the integrated test range (ITR) off Odisha’s coast. Exactly a year ago, the ITR announced interest in procuring a wide band telemetry receiver specifically for the LR-SAM test schedule. The test is expected to be conducted at ceiling range against an aerial target. The trial schedule in India may include at least three tests in the November 2014-March 2015 period.

    The LR-SAM, designated Barak 8 by IAI, when inducted, will be housed in four vertical launch units (VLUs), each housing eight missiles, on each of the three Project-15A destroyers, seven Project-17A stealth frigates and aircraft carrier Vikrant, i.e, each of India’s next-generation warships will carry at least 32 LR-SAMs. The combat suites of both vessel classes will be built around the Elta EL/M-2248 MF-STAR. Scientists and engineers from DRDO have visited Israel regularly to gauge progress on the system, that the Indian Army and the Indian Air Force (IAF) have also expressed interest in.

    The dual-pulse smokeless solid rocket motor propelled missile is being built with an effective range of 70 km and a ceiling of 16 km. The missile’s high agility is being provided by a tungsten jet vane system for thrust vector control and a highly evolved electro-pneumatic control actuation system. Following fresh interest evinced by IAF and the Indian Army, the dual-mode guided weapon (GPS + data link for mid-course guidance/seeker for terminal homing) will be deployable on mobile launchers as well. The weapon system can engage 12 targets with 24 missiles.

    From short- to long-range, from supersonic sea-skimmers to high-altitude targets in all-weather conditions, the LR-SAM is capable of multiple simultaneous engagements in severe saturation scenarios. The system boasts a stand-alone data link for optimised task forces and missiles coordination.

    The missile system’s flexible dual pulse motor system provides high manoeuvre capability at target interception range throughout its wide envelope.

    Its low weight and small size (about half of similar systems, claims IAI) – makes for a small footprint on any frontline ship. Low signatures (carry, launch & flight) makes for high ship survivability. Robust multi-missile coexistence and multi-target capability (supported by seeker, DL & WCS) enables operation in highly saturated operational scenarios. Finally it sports a high performance warhead with a robust kill mechanism.

    A senior Indian Navy officer said, “The LR-SAM programme has been somewhat delayed by a few years. This has been a cause for concern. But the end product looks promising. The ships that will deploy this missile will begin to enter service this year, in fact very shortly. It is therefore imperative that IAI and DRDO expedite the test programme so that final integration and user trials can commence on time and on plan. The significance of point defence and air defence capability for our fleet cannot be overstated, given the myriad threats available in our area of operations.”

    The DRDO entered into a contract with IAI in January 2006 to jointly develop the LR-SAM system for the Indian and Israeli navies. The Rs. 2,606-crore programme is envisaged to be completed by December 2015.

    IAI carries out successful trial of Barak 8 air and missile defense system

    Israel Aerospace Industries announced on Monday a successful trial of its Barak 8 Air and Missile Defense System after it shot down a target that simulated an incoming hostile aircraft.

    The trial, conducted in collaboration with the Defense Ministry, tested the next generation of defenses currently being installed on Israel Navy ships to protect them from a variety of threats, including the Yakhont surface-to-sea guided missiles in the possession of Hezbollah.

    The Barak 8 is being jointly developed with India’s Defense Research and Development Organization. It will also be deployed by the Indian Defense Forces.

    “The current test validated all components of the weapon system to the satisfaction of the customer representatives,” IAI said in a statement. Israeli specialists and Indian scientists, including Defense Ministry and Defense Research and Development Organization representatives, participated in the test, along with both countries’ armed forces officers.

    Joseph Weiss, IAI’s president and CEO, was present at the test site.

    The system’s impressive, advanced capabilities, proven today in this complex test, are another testimony of IAI’s resilience, advanced and groundbreaking capabilities,” Weiss said. “Barak 8... is a major growth engine for the company.”

    Boaz Levi, executive vice president and general manager for IAI’s Systems, Missiles & Space Group, said it was the first trial involving a full operational scenario.

    After being detected by the Barak 8 radar, the system calculated the optimal interception point, launched the missile into its operational trajectory and successfully intercepted the target. All the weapon system’s components met the test’s goals successfully, Levi said.

    “The radar tracked the target, and at the right moment the system went into action,” he continued.

    “It built up an operational scenario and the mission missile was fired at the right time. It received updates throughout its trajectory.

    It then opened its eye and acquired the target through an independent sensor, destroying it completely,” he added.

    “We are moving toward systematic production of the Barak 8,” he said.

    In addition to IAI, which is the prime contractor, the Barak 8 project involves ELTA Systems Ltd., an IAI subsidiary that produces the system’s radars, and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, which manufactures the missile.

    Barak 8 employs a state-of-the-art phased array multi-mission radar, a two-way data link and a flexible command and control system, according to IAI. It has been under development for several years, and Monday’s trial was the latest in a series of tests.

    Most test-firings from Su-30MKI will occur later this year. The Astra Mk-1 will be used as the primary BVRAAM for
    the Tejas Mk-1 fighter.

    The first long-range surface to air missile (LRSAM) jointly developed by Israel and India was handed over to the Indian Navy on Tuesday at a ceremony in the city of Hyderabad.

    The LRSAM, or Barak-8 naval air defense system, is jointly developed by India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in close collaboration with Israel's Israel Aircraft Industry (IAI).

    The system comprises of advanced phased-array radar, command and control systems, as well as launchers and missiles with advanced RF seekers. With state-of-the-art technology, the system provides missile defense against a variety of aerial, naval and air-borne threats.

    The system is operational with the IDF, Indian Air Force, Indian Navy and according to a statement released by IAI, will be operational in the near future with the Indian Army as well.

    India’s Minister of Defense Arun Jaitley called the delivery of the system “a historical day for India” in which the Indian Navy has become “the proud owners of one the most sophisticated systems in the world.”

    Jaitley praised the collaborative effort of developing the LRSAM and said that the delivery of the first missile “coming out from indigenous production line is an example of the Indian economy and industry capabilities. We must continue developing the local infrastructure and manufacturing as part of our defense capabilities.”

    “India needs to be prepared for any scenario therefore we should equip our operational forces with the best of advanced technology,” he added.

    IAI has been working with the Indian defense industries and armed forces, such as the Coast Guard, Navy, Air Force and Army for the past 25 years. The partnership is part of a strategic collaboration to transfer technology to benefit Indians as part of New Dehli’s ‘Made in India’ policy.

    Boaz Levi, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Systems, Missiles & Space Group stated that "the delivery of the first missile manufactured in India to India's defense arms is a technological dream come true. It is another exciting step in the many-years collaboration between IAI, India's government, India's DRDO and other partners and one that reflects a technological and engineering effort of the highest level."

    India has become one of Israel’s largest buyers of military hardware. While visiting Israel in May, Indian Rear-Admiral R.B. Pandit said that India has “benefited from defense technologies, and a number of significant defense acquisitions have been made from Israel.”

    He made specific reference to the Barak-8 missile system, which he said “provides the Indian Navy new and greater air-defense capabilities.”

    Over the past few years, IAI has awarded several contracts for air and missile defense systems to India, including a string of deals worth $2.5 billion in recent months. In April IAI announced that it had been awarded the largest defense contract in Israel’s defense industry history after signing a $1.6 billion mega-contract with the Indian Army for the medium-range surface-to-air missile (MRSAM) advanced air and missile defense systems as well as additional LRSAM air and missile defense systems for Indian aircraft carriers.
