Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) entered agreements worth US $93 million for provision of Naval MRSAM (Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile) systems. The contracts were entered with the Indian Navy and Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL).
Under the contracts, IAI will provide complementary systems for the air defense system (ADS). They involve follow up orders for a range of maintenance and other services for various sub-systems of IAI’s advanced MSRAM ADS.
Last week, the Indian navy, in collaboration with IAI, held an interception test aboard INS Chennai, which assessed for the first-time potential collaboration between ships. The interception scenario, which was executed successfully, demonstrated how the operational force of the defense system can be doubled regionally, rather than topically.
