India on Tuesday successfully test-fired its Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile (QRSAM) system from a base in Odisha for the second time in four days, defence sources said. The missile accurately hit an airborne target and neutralised it, they said. The test was conducted around 3.42 pm from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur. It was carried out against high-performance jet unmanned aerial target ‘Banshee’, which simulates an aircraft, they said. The radars acquired the target from a long range and tracked it till the mission computer automatically launched the missile.

Continuous guidance was provided through a radar data link, an ITR statement said. The QRSAM weapon system, which can operate on the move, consists of indigenously developed subsystems. All objectives of the test were fully met. The launch was carried out in the presence of the users from the Army, it said. A number of range instruments were deployed which captured the complete flight data and verified the performance of the missile, the statement said.

The first QRSAM test was conducted on November 13. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated the DRDO scientists on the successful flight test of QRSAM. DRDO Chairman G Satheesh Reddy congratulated all the teams that worked on the QRSAM project for the second successful test.
