Israel Military Industries (IMI) will participate in the 8th International Exhibition on Aerospace at Aero India 2011 held at Yelahanka, Bengaluru, India starting from February 9th to 15th. IMI will display the DELILAH Ground Launched (GL), loitering guided missile, the MPR500, Multi-Purpose Rigid Bomb, the IFB500, Improved Fragmentation Bomb and IMI’s new SPECTRAL IR FLARES during its display at Aero India 2011. IMI will also showcase the RED SKY 2 that is a Very Short Range Air Defense System, offered as an upgrade to existing Man Portable Air Defense Systems. The IMI will also display the Multi-Purpose Rifle System (MPRS) designed with increased lethality and enhanced target incapacitation capabilities.
The DELILAH GL is an advanced precision deep strike loitering missile, based on the combat proven Air-Launched, long range DELILAH missile utilized by the Israeli Air Force (IAF). The Delilah missile is a cruise missile developed by Israel Military Industries (IMI) to target moving and re-locatable targets with a CEP of 1 metre. The missile is powered by a rocket booster for the launch phase and a turbojet engine for the cruise phase, allowing long-range flight and loitering capability. In addition, the missile incorporates an advanced combined GPS satellite positioning and Internal Navigation System (INS), as well as, Real Time Imagery for man-in-theloop intervention and target validation, ensuring a nearly autonomous mode of operation. The Delilah-GL is a ground-launched variation of the Delilah cruise missile, that has a range of 250 km.
The MPR500 is a Multi-Purpose Rigid Bomb, capable of penetrating straight through four multi-level floors and double reinforced walls, while reducing collateral damage, making it optimal against challenging targets, such as bunkers and fortifications. The IFB500 is a highly effective anti-personnel and anti-material Improved Fragmentation Bomb. IMI has extensive experience and expertise in developing state-of-the-art aerial countermeasures which have led to the development of the new ADVANCED SPECTRAL IR FLARES, which are the world’s only covert pyrotechnic flares. The SPECTRAL FALES are capable of defeating most advanced MANPADS, and are in use and combat proven by the Israeli Air Force.
IMI’s RED SKY 2, mobile and modular Very Short Range Air Defense (VSHORAD) system, is highly effective against most modern helicopters and strike aircraft, making it ideal for the defense of stationary sites or mobile units. IMI’s newly developed Multi-Purpose Rifle System (MPRS) is the latest lethal and accurate munition for the infantry. The MPRS can be embedded on any existing assault rifle using a 40mm grenade launcher. At the exhibition the MPRS will be showcased upon an AK47 Kalashnikov assault rifle. Israel Military Industries (IMI) is an Israeli weapons manufacturer that manufactures firearms, ammunition and military technology mainly for Israeli security forces although its small arms are very popular throughout the world.
