Initial Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense

Warfighters face a myriad of dangerous threats — ground and air. Warfighters require precision direct fire weapons and missiles to defeat these current and emerging threats. With Leonardo DRS’ mission equipment package, as part of the Initial Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense (IM-SHORAD) capability, Warfighters possess the ability to maneuver at the tactical level with a complete detect, identify, track and defeat capability which defeats UAS, rotary-wing and fixed-wing threats. By employing precision ground-to-ground and ground-to-air lethality, the Warfighter truly owns the edge.
