Man-In-The-Loop Tactical Missile System
Spider is a fibre-optic guided, man-in-the-loop tactical missile system intended to destroy armoured military vehicles and artillery systems. Graded as a tactical NLOS system for backup of infantry action whose primary device is a modern guided projectile with its own propulsion, Spider is designed for battlefield isolation and anti-armour combat.
The missile uses a tandem warhead – two shaped charges, a precursor warhead to detonate any explosive reactive armour and a primary warhead to penetrate the underlying armour. Penetrating over 1,000 mm RHA, Spider develops a cruise speed of 200m/s, at an altitude of 500m, with the capability to destroy heavy battle tanks at a range of up to 9km.
The main subsections of the missile system include homing, control subsystem, warhead, control system actuators, rocket motor, and fibre-optic bobbin.
The missile is powered by a solid propellant boost engine (2400N of thrust) during the booster phase and by a solid propellant sustainer engine (240N) for the main propulsion.
The launch platform can be integrated into different types of ground vehicles.
