Sea Breaker provides surgical, pin-point precision strikes from stand-off ranges of up to 300 km. It features an advanced IIR (Imaging Infra-Red) seeker, ideal for engagement of maritime and land targets, stationary or moving, in advanced anti-access and area-denial arenas, and in littoral or brown water, including archipelago, as well as for engagements in which previous generation RF-seeker-based missiles are not effective.
The air-defence missile system has emerged from a peculiar geographical necessity of Israel, coupled with a strong backing of the US in terms of hundreds of millions of dollars in investment and also cutting-edge technology.
The Missile with a strike range of 100 kms has been developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in a collaboration with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI). The new generation missile is aimed to neutralise airborne threats — jets, missiles, UAV’s, rockets, including projectiles launched simultaneously. The missile can travel at ‘Mach 2’.
IDD Bureau Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (IAI) has appointed Boaz Levy as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). A decision was made by the Board of Directors, chaired by Harel Locker following a search committee’s recommendation to nominate Levy who succeeds Maj. General (retd.) Nimrod Sheffer, who stepped down as CEO on October 31, 2020.
The policy aims to promote ‘Make in India’ as OEM’s which transfer technology to Indian companies will gain under the new policy while those who can move their manufacturing plants to India will get priority.
US President Donald J. Trump, on July 24, lowered a subset of UAS from category I, with highest restrictions, to category II, allowing easier exports without getting bogged down with MTCR rules. All other US rules will continue to apply on such equipment.
