In collaboration with Israel
The successful conduct of the test has been the result of sustained efforts by all stakeholders over the years. DRDL Hyderabad, a DRDO Lab, has jointly developed this missile in collaboration with Israel Aerospace Industries. The firing trial was carried out by the Navy, DRDO and Israel Aerospace Industries. The MRSAM has been manufactured by Bharat Dynamics Limited, India.
Indian Navy joins the select group
These Surface to Air Missiles have fitted onboard the Kolkata Class Destroyers and would also be fitted on all future major warships of the Indian Navy. With the successful proving of this cooperative mode of engagement, the Indian Navy has become a part of a select group of Navies that have this niche capability. This capability significantly enhances the combat effectiveness of the Indian Navy thereby providing an operational edge over potential adversaries.
