The ongoing Singapore Airshow marks the maiden public display of Israel Aerospace Industries’ Blue Spear (5G SSM) surface-to-surface missile.

The system, co-developed by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) with ST Engineering and marketed by joint venture company Proteus Advanced Systems, highlights the companies’ superior capabilities in both naval and air defense. Blue Spear has been selected by Estonia for its defense needs. The missile is said to be already deployed by the Israeli and Singaporean armies.

“In partnership with Singapore’s leading defense company ST Engineering, IAI co-developed the most advanced surface-to-surface missile system with unparalleled capabilities,” said Boaz Levy, IAI President and CEO. “The BLUE SPEAR’s inaugural display in IAI’s booth at the Singapore Airshow highlights IAI’s successful heritage developing naval and air defence solutions, and offering highly competitive and advanced holistic systems to the worldwide market.”

The Blue Spear, built on the battle-proven Gabriel missile family heritage, delivers an agile, highly penetrative, combined anti-ship and land attack capability with a range of 290 km at high sub-sonic speed. It deploys a state-of-the-art radar seeker and advanced weapon control system to provide precise target detection and engagement. It can operate under all weather conditions, during both day and night, and has beyond the line of sight strike capabilities against both mobile and stationary targets. The system offers both sea-based and land-based launch options.
