At the end of 2021, Diehl Defence demonstrated the operational efficiency of the IRIS-T SLM Ground-Based Air Defence (GBAD) system under realistic operating conditions during several successful test firings, the company writes in a press release. The firings served as evidence for the technical and operational capability of the overall system.
IRIS-T SLM complements the IRIS-T SLS short-to-medium range air defence system and has been in operation with Scandinavian customers for several years. Compared to the capabilities of the IRIS-T systems already in service, IRIS-T SLM system provides a longer range, which was demonstrated by the latest test firing along with hit accuracy and interaction of all system components and the ground infrastructure, according to Diehl Defence.
As the prime contractor, Diehl Defence can offer the complete IRIS-T SLM air defence system including fire-control sensor, radar and missile.
