India and Israel in military deal E-mail

In a deal valued at over US$2.5 billion, India and Israel will co-develop and produce a medium-range surface-to-air missile for use by the Indian Army.

An official from India’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the weapon, dubbed MRSAM, will be produced by the state-owned Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) in partnership with other stateowned and private defence companies, but refused to say who will own the data package for the technology.

“The formal clearance for the MRSAM project has been given by the Cabinet committee on security headed by the prime minister,” the MoD official said. A formal contract will be awarded soon.

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) executives were unavailable for comment. The MRSAM will be developed jointly by India’s state-owned defence research agency, the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), and IAI. The weapon will have the capability to shoot down enemy aircraft and drones at a strike range of between 50 and 70 kilometres.
