Missile summary table





The missile system 23 Bamse is a system of surface-to-air missile with a medium range. It is designed for protection of air- and naval base facilities, centres of population, important total defense plants and to support ground troops.


RBS 23 is intended to form separate anti-aircraft battalions. The air defence missile system is produced by Bofors and has the designation RBS 23 BAMSE.[1]


System description

An anti-aircraft company of RBS 23 BAMSE composes of three Firing Units (EldE) and one surveillance unit (UndE). The UndE is a 3 D C-band central surveillance  radar, which compiles the actual air status, based on among other their own surveillance, the LuLIS (Air Status


Surveillance System), STRIL and collaboration with other radar units. The target information is analyzed at the firing unit and the most hazardous target is selected for combating.


The firing unit consists of a drawn vehicle with space for two operators. On top of the vehicle there is a mount for four missiles and a 8 meter tall mast, on which the sensors are mounted.


The main detector is a Ka band fire control radar. This unit targets on the selected target with great accuracy and when the missile has been launched it also tracks it with the radar. The radar unit is also used for the transmission of navigation directives to the missile, which is guided to aiming line of the radar, so called collimation control.


The warhead is triggered either at direct hit or by the missile proximity fuse.
