MSI-DS TERRAHAWK VSHORAD is a self-contained solution developed for augmented mobility and deployability in close range air defence. Modular, remote-controlled, and deployable – to defend against close and very-close range land, air, and maritime threats (proven C-UAS and C-FIAC capability). The system can be vehicle-mounted (military and civilian) or ground positioned on NATO-standard Demountable Rack Offload and Pickup System (DROPS), with offset remote control for operator survivability (hard-wire or Line of Sight).
The integration of field-proven effectors, sensing and detection capabilities, including the MSI-DS TERRAHAWK LW Series gun mount and the MSI-DS SATOS, provides the assurance of class-leading accuracy, lethality, and survivability. The system can be deployed as a singleton or part of a network under a Combat Management System. This positions MSI-DS VSHORAD as a critical close range defence solution and provide layered lethality in protecting high value targets and critical infrastructure, including coastal assets.
