India defence online reports that the Indian Army has announced that it will be procuring a short-range surface to air missile (SRSAM) system to augment its air defence capability and provide security to critical installations and bases in the country.

According to the Request for Information (RFI) issued by the Indian Army, it wants a missile system that can be transported on both rail and road mobile launchers in all possible terrains in the country.

The missile should also be able to target objects moving at speeds between zero to 500m per second; including hovering targets such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), fighter and surveillance aircraft and helicopters. The Indian Army added that the new missile system must be capable of operating in both day and night conditions and take on targets in the dark as well.

The RFI issued by the Indian Army also indicates that the radar of the SRSAM system should be capable of tracking a number of targets simultaneously and should have Electronic Counter Counter-Measures (ECCM) to be able to support the electronic warfare environment. The SRSAM system should be capable of operating in Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) warfare environments.
