LRSAM is an advanced air and missile defence system, jointly developed by IAI and India's Defence Research and Development Organisation.

In April, IAI said India will buy nearly $2 billion worth of weapons technology from Israel in what was described as the "largest defence contract" ever signed by the military exporting giant.
