INS Teg Successfully Tests Russian-Indian Supersonic Cruise Missile BrahMos

 

Test launch of Russian-Indian supersonic cruise missile BrahMos was successfully held in the Baltic Sea by Indian frigate INS Teg (Project 11356), reports ITAR-TASS referring to a source involved in the tests.

According to him, the test launch was carried out in order to check compatibility of the ship’s missile system with BrahMos missiles. Having left bow vertical launch system, the missile entered flight trajectory and reached assigned point in the sea test range. According to telemetric records, all onboard equipment worked normally.

Second trio of Project 11356 Talwar frigates – INS Teg, INS Tarkash, and INS Trikand – is being constructed for Indian Navy by Yantar Shipyard (Kaliningrad) since 2007. According to schedule, the batch will be delivered in 2013-2014. All ships are equipped with BrahMos attack missile system comprising 8 missiles placed in vertical launch system 3S-14E.

Project 11356 frigate is designed on the basis of Russian Project 11351 patrol ship. Russia has already built three frigates of this project for Indian Navy at Baltiysky Zavod shipyard (St. Petersburg) in 1999-2003. The contract for the first 3-ship batch cost about $ 1 bln, the second trio – $ 1.6 bln.

It was decided to build 6 similar frigates for Russia’s Black Sea Fleet at Yantar shipyard till 2015 under updated project; two of them have been already laid down in 2011.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
