IAI and ST Engineering JV Proteus pitches Blue Spear anti-ship missile as a Harpoon replacement for navies after winning an Estonian coastal defence contract.

Proteus Advanced Systems publicly displayed its Blue Spear missile at Singapore Airshow 2022 for the first time, four months after announcement of a contract with the Estonian Defence Forces to meet its coastal anti-ship requirement.

Two full-scale models were displayed, one on Israel Aerospace Industries' (IAI's) booth and another in Singapore’s ST Engineering pavilion.

The Blue Spear, also known as the 5G SSM, is a sea-skimming anti-ship missile with a land attack capability. It has a range of up to 290km, flies at high subsonic speed, is equipped with a radio frequency (RF) seeker and utilises ‘advanced algorithms’ for target discrimination.
