I would rather see our own LR-SAM based on AAD enter service in 4-5 yrs.
Dont think any system will work againist Paki missile.
Yeah thats why India is deploying BMD phase-I. Paki missiles are very easy to intercept. India has been tracking their tests for decades and know before them if it succeeded or failed.
India and Israel: Strategic Partners on the Move
IAI Unveils New System That Doubles Operational Range Of Barak Missiles
Barak needs to be faster. It is only Mach 2 when compared to Aster at Mach 3.5 - 4.5
About five-to-seven kilometres short of the target, a seeker on the interceptor’s nose switched on, locking it onto the target. To accelerate the interceptor, which was by now merely coasting, the dual-pulse motor fired for a second time. This increased the interceptor’s velocity up to Mach 5-7, enabling it to manoeuvre sharply in tandem with the target’s evasive zigzags.
BEL bags Rs. 9,200 crore missile order
State-owned aerospace and defence company, BEL will supply and services seven Long-range Surface-to-air Missile systems for MDL and GRSE.
Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) The company has entered into contracts with Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL) and Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers Limited to supply seven Long-range Surface-to-air Missile (LRSAM) systems to be fitted on seven ships to built by these two shipbuilders. The company informed the exchanges about the order receipt post-lunch hours on Wednesday.
As on July 1, BEL's order book position stood at Rs. 41,645 crore. For Q1FY19, BEL posted a net turnover of Rs. 2,077.84 crore which is a growth of about 23 per cent as against Rs. 1,694.55 crore in Q1FY18.

Israel Aerospace signs $93m Indian missile deal
The contracts with the Indian Navy and Cochin Shipyard are for Naval MRSAM (Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile) systems.
Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (IAI) (TASE: ARSP.B1) announced that it has signed agreements worth $93 million for provision of Naval MRSAM (Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile) systems. The contracts are with the Indian Navy and Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL). Under the terms of the contracts, IAI will provide complementary systems for the air defense system (ADS), involving follow up orders for a range of maintenance and other services for various sub-systems of IAI’s advanced MSRAM ADS.
Last Thursday, the Indian navy, in collaboration with IAI, held an interception test aboard INS Chennai, which assessed for the first time potential collaboration between ships. The interception scenario, which was executed successfully, demonstrated how the operational force of the defense system can be doubled regionally, rather than topically.
IAI EVP and General Manager of Systems, Missiles & Space Group Boaz Levi said, “The follow-up orders provide additional evidence of the satisfaction and trust of our Indian partners in respect to the MRSAM family. The Thursday test demonstrated the advanced technological capabilities of the air defense system as well as our collaboration between IAI, its partners in India’s navy, the local Indian industry and our colleagues at IAI’s ELTA and RAFAEL. This is a badge of honor for the entire Israeli industry."
The MRSAM family is an operational air-defense system used by Israel's navy as well as by India’s naval, air and ground forces. It has been uniquely developed by IAI in collaboration with Israel's Ministry of defense, India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), RAFAEL, IAI’s Elta and additional industries in India and Israel. To date, MRSAM achieved over $6 billion in sales. It provides broad as well as topical defense against a range of assault air, marine and ground threats. MRSAM comprises several key state-of-the-art systems, including a digital radar, command and control, launchers, and interceptors with advanced homing seekers.
11 ship sets of #LRSAM orders are already in the kitty of BEL and the first set will be supplied to the user by March 2020: BEL CMD M V Gowtama
India should keep the radar and scrap the missiles to replace them with Astra with an ER booster attached to it. This would be a huge boost to indigenisation and a spiral of technologies for Astra 2. Get everything on a common platform and keep pumping out different variations of it is how you become self sufficient and reach economies of scale.
That's probably the plan in long run. India is testing different seekers radar and booster working on multiple projects simultaneously .
Astra mk1 , mk2. Akash , akash Ng , Barak 8 , XR Sam , sfdr , ngram and even s400 will come with some TOT.
Not to mention BMD project with PAD and AAD.
Putting all that knowledge and expertise together within a decade India should be self sufficient in all spectrum of missile technology including air to air and surface to air missiles.

Has Indian air force deployed MRSAM in strength...since air force first deployed it during surgical strike 2016..
