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 IDAS (Interactive Defence and Armament for Submarines or Interactive Defence and Attack system for Submarines) missile system is also based on IRIS-T missile. IDAS purpose is to allow submerged submarines to effectively engage surface vessels, anti-submarine helicopters and land targets near the coast. Currently, IDAS is a technology demonstration program expected to go into development in 2007.
