Rio de Janeiro (RJ) – The Army Assessment Center (CAEx) supported the Army Technology Center (CTEx) and the company SIATT Engenharia, Indústria e Comércio during the test phase of the 1.2 Anti-tanker Surface-to-Surface Missile System (MSS 1.2 AC) between February 6 and 9.
The tests were accompanied by military and civilian engineers and technicians, with the objective of verifying the effectiveness of the improvements implemented in the MSS 1.2 AC Weapon System. The launch of the telemetric missile against a target positioned two thousand meters away was analyzed.
The instrumentation of the activity comprises two telemetry systems, with two stations in redundancy, which allow monitoring the various components and subsystems of the missile in real time, during the launch and after the end of the flight. To verify the trajectory of the missile, the tests are supported by a set of cameras and drones, which allow the current configuration of the system to be validated, with a view to implementation in the examples that will be used in the continuity of the technical sub-phase of the “Evaluation of the Pilot Batch”.
The success of the test ratifies the capacity of the Science, Technology and Innovation System and the Defense and Security Industrial Base to develop high-tech national products, providing the Land Force with greater portability, flexibility, and precision in combat against armored vehicles. The system for launching medium-range laser-guided anti-tank missiles can be used by troops on the ground or in vehicles.
