DRDO successfully test fired short range Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile from Odisha coast.

Chandipur(Balasore):26/2/19: The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) today successfully test fired short range Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile (QRSAM) from a test facility off Odisha coast.

Sources said two missiles were tested from Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur in Balasore district today.

The sleek and highly mobile air defence system was fired from a canister mounted on a rotatable truck-based launch unit from Chandipur ITR, said an official.

The state-of-the-art missile, which can destroy multiple targets at a distance of 15 km, will supplement the medium range surface-to-air missile ‘Akash’.

Developed by Defence Research and Development Laboratory, the missile can be used as an anti-sea skimmer from a ship against low flying attacking missiles.

Meanwhile, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik congratulated DRDO on the successful test fire of the missile. Patnaik took to Twitter and said, “Congratulate DRDO for successful test flight of quick-reaction surface-to-air missile off the Odisha coast. It will help strengthen Indian Army’s strike capability and nation’s military might.”
