Air-to-Air Missile 98 IRIS-T

 

The Iris-T (Infra-red Imaging System Tail/Trust Vector Controlled) missile is an air-to-air missile used on the aircraft JAS 39 Griffon. It is optimized to combat targets at very short ranges from the firing aircraft. The missile has therefore been given the capability to turn very sharply with the assistance of TVC control (Thrust Vector Control), i. e. small fins in the rocket motor exhaust, that direct the engine thrustin the desired direction and wings on the missile that make the missile Iris-T capable of powerful turns also at low speed, whichgives the missile very tight turning radiuses.

 

The IRIS-T is manufactured by Diehl BGT Defence in Germany.

The seeker is of the image generative type thatworks within the infra-red sector. Together with an advanced digital imaging processing the missile will at large be quite resistant to the counter-measures of today or similar onesthat can be anticipated, at least within the near future.

 

The TVC also has a very good guidance precision.The majority of all firings result in a direct target hit, with a high degree of target suppression. This also means that small targets such as UAV’s and cruise missiles can successfully be combatted.

 

Although the missile is intended for targets at shortdistances the performance at far distances is also very fair.
