India on 3 July 2017 successfully test-fired indigenously developed quick reaction surface-to-air missile (QR-SAM) off the Odisha coast.
This short range missile with a strike range of 25 to 30 km was test fired from a truck-mounted canister launcher from the Integrated Test Range at Chandipur.
It was the second developmental trial of the state-of-the-art missile with an aerial target. The first developmental trial of the missile was carried out on 4 June 2017 from the same base.
Designed to be a quick reaction missile, it is capable of engaging multiple targets and involves an all-weather weapon system capable of tracking and firing.
It was developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and other establishments.
