India has successfully conducted the test firing of a Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile (MRSAM) at its integrated test range off the coast of Odisha, India, the Ministry of Defence announced on 30 June.

The missile was guided by a radar system and on-board avionics to successfully strike a pilotless target aircraft. 

The MRSAM has been developed by India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in association with IAI of Israel for the Indian Air Force. Indian companies including Tata, BDL, L&T and BEL have contributed to the development of subsystems.

Israel and Indian teams participated in the launch campaign.

The MRSAM system has been designed to provide air defence at medium ranges. The successful test firing is a significant milestone in India's development of air defence capabilities.
