UAS Spaceteq INGWE Precision-guided Missile Ingwe ('leopard') missile is a laser guided, therefore jam-resistant, beam-rider missile with a tandem warhead that will penetrate up to 1000 mm of Rolled Homogeneous Armour (RHA) after a single layer of reactive armour. The warhead ensures effective target neutralisation. The missile automatically determines its own position in the laser beam and manoeuvres onto the line of sight. It has crossfire capability from adjacent platforms with high-speed launch from helicopter platforms and fire-on-the-move from land platforms. The system is designed to ensure that it can be installed easily on most aircrafts in either standard two-or-four-missile configuration. Electrical integration with aircraft avionics is achieved with standard serial communication interfaces. Ingwe uses laser beam-riding guidance. The missile automatically determines its own position in the laser beam and manoeuvres onto the line of sight. The missile follows the line of sight until the target is hit. The warhead ensures effective target neutralisation. The sighting system can vary from a non-stabilised optical sight for light vehicles to a more complex and integrated stabilized day/ night sight for moving platforms such as helicopters. Automatic target-tracking modules can be added to ensure fully automatic missile guidance after target lockon by the operator. The system is designed to ensure that it can be installed easily on most aircraft in either standard two or four-missile configuration. Electrical integration with aircraft avionics is achieved with standard serial communication interfaces. Other platform options include heavy IFV turrets fitted with stabilised sighting systems, to light vehicle and even tripod-mounted solutions. Technical Data Missile mass : 28.5 kg Missile diameter : 127 mm Missile length : 1 750 mm Penetration : up to 1 000 mm in RHA (with ERA) Range : 250 m to beyond 5 000 m System Features Multi-purpose missile for use by infantry, armoured or helicopter forces against modern threats Crossfire capability from adjacent platforms High-speed launch from helicopter platforms Fire-on-the-move from land platforms High countermeasure resistance High-accuracy laser beam-riding guidance Short- and long-range application (250 m to 5 000 m) Easy to use, with automatic target tracking Low maintenance cost Principle of Operation Ingwe III The project of the unobtrusive ATGM Denel "Stealth Ingwe" (Ingwe III) a promising project abandoned by Denel due to budget cuts. An inconspicuous anti-tank missile designed to overcome promising active protection systems. The flight range is up to 6 km, the total weight is 22 kg, the diameter is 150 mm, and the length is 1.2 m. On the advertising poster, the company claims that the missile has an RCS not greater than that of a 12.7 mm bullet. The missile can be equipped with a cumulative, penetrating or high-explosive fragmentation warhead. The anti-tank cumulative warhead can be rotated and thus you can choose the method of attacking the target: when flying over it or into the side. The status of this project is uncertain, given the grim outlook for the originating company. With R4.4 billion in losses in the three years 2018-2020 and R3.2 billion of debt, Denel is insolvent. There is also no clear path to save the company. By 2021 Denel Dynamics had lost almost all its engineers, many of whom had gone to work for companies in the Middle East. Many people left Denel over the non-payment of salaries. Some divisions of Denel, like Denel Dynamics, haven’t paid employees their salaries for January and February 2021 at all.
