KSAM Korean Surface to Air Missile
Pegasus, a Self-Propelled Surface to Air Missile System, is the Korean version of the Crotale / Shahine. It was developed to provide air defence system against low and medium altitude air attack. It has combat capabilities at day and night, all weather condition which thanks to state of the arts radar and EOTS system. High accuracy of missile system is acomplished by guidance and control system utilising the FLIR, IR Localizer and CLOS. All of the capability has been proved by the toughest test program. Pegasus will contribute to fulfill the air defence capability to ground forces in next decades.
PEGASUS is a self-propelled short range air defense missile system designed to provide anti-aircraft defense for ground forces or vital installations against low and very low level air attack in severe environments. PEGASUS is designed to install a surveillance radar, a tracking radar and electro optics, a missile launcher on an armoured tracked vehicle with high mobility to meet all operational mission requirements.
PEGASUS's real-time multisensor target acquisition system has been carefully designed to provide reliable all-weather, day & night air defense capabilities, regardless of battlefield clutter and hostile ECM conditions. PEGASUS combines advanced radar and electro optics using unique data processing technology.
PEGASUS is armed with 8 missiles ready to fire at all times. PEGASUS's highly maneuverable, ground controlled missile carries a proximity fuse, and a focused fragment warhead. This combination offers very high kill probability against all maneuvering targets.
Defense for front line armoured brigades, defense for vital installations such as airfields logistic centers, headquarters, these are the missions fulfilled by the PEGASUS to counter various air threats under the most adverse environment.
