Description: The IRIS-T, InfraRed Imaging System - Tail/Thrust Vector Controlled, is an international initiative to replace current AIM-9L/M Sidewinder short-range, air-to-air missiles. The missile combines advanced aerodynamics and thrust vector control in a tail controlled airframe to achieve outstanding performance. It utilizes a solid-propellant rocket motor. IRIS-T features a roll-pitch (128x128) IR seeker with �90� look angle for high off-boresight angle missile engagements. Engagements against targets in the rear hemisphere can be done successfully with the missile locked-on target after launch. IRIS-T outstanding agility is the key to successfully engage highly maneuverable advanced aircraft. The missile design is flexible enough allowing development of surface-launch variants.

The IRIS-T SLS is a very short range surface-to-air missile intended for air defense system applications and based on the IRIS-T missile without any modifications.
