Overview of the NASAMS rocket complex

NASAMS is capable of tracking and engaging multiple targets simultaneously. Compared to previous versions, it has reduced the response time and the transition from derivative to combat mode. The number of service personnel is also less. It has the possibility of combining equipment with a higher degree and combining it with other systems.

Since 1999, the complex has been in service with the air defense units of the Norwegian ground forces. Since 2004, this air defense system has been in service with the United States and is used for Washington’s air defense system.

The NASAMS complex was purchased for the armed forces of Spain, the Netherlands, Chile, Finland, Oman, Lithuania, Indonesia and Qatar.

Transition time from starting position to combat position, min: 15

Speed ​​of hit target, maximum, m/s: 1 thousand

Maximum speed of rocket flight, m/s: 1020

Anti-aircraft missiles (anti-aircraft guided missiles) are equipped A high-explosive directed-action warhead, the detonation of which is carried out by an active radar or contact capsule. It is stored, transported and launched from shipping-launch containers (TLCs).

six pack such a TPK is placed on a launcher made on the chassis of an all-terrain vehicle.

Detection, recognition and simultaneous support 60 air targets and their targeting are carried out by the multifunctional radar station AN/TPQ-64.

Radar AN/TPQ-64 – equipped with pulsed Doppler, three-coordinate, phased antenna arrays and an integrated interrogator his own Type Mk.XII. The station surveys the area due to mechanical rotation of the antenna along the azimuth and electronic scanning of the position angle.

Radar operations management carried out using the computer of the fire control point.
