India has successfully test-fired two indigenously developed Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air missiles (QRSAM) from the Chandipur test range off the Odisha coast.

  • QRSAM was test fired from a rotatable truck-based launch unit at Chandipur in Odisha’s Balasore district.
  • The two missiles tested for different altitude and conditions successfully demonstrated robust control, aerodynamics, propulsion, structural performance and high manoeuvring capabilities.
  • The missile is an all-weather, all-terrain missile with electronic countermeasures against jamming by aircraft radars.
  • QRSAM uses solid-fuel propellant and has a range of 25-30 km.
  • QRSAM has been developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in association with Bharat Electronics Limited and Bharat Dynamics Limited as a replacement to Osa-AK and Kvadrat missile systems.
