The delegations arrived from various countries, including Poland, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, Spain and others.
 

Spike SR is part of the wider Spike Family that consists of missiles with ranges of up to 30 km that can be launched from different platforms, naval, land and aerial, against a variety of targets. Rafael has sold so far 27,000 spike missiles to more than 26 customers.

The Spike SR is a uniquely-shaped missile with an advanced seeker that has enabled reduction in weight and size, and has lowered its cost and has made it more reliable than its competition. A major breakthrough in the design of the missile is the unification of its emission and flight engine – a unique development that has contributed to its low weight and short length. The missile is highly maneuverable and can hit moving targets at short ranges.

Spike SR (with canister and control unit) weighs less than 10 kg – lower that competing missiles. This constitutes a major advantage for small tactical missiles that are used and carried by infantry soldiers for great distances.

The missile's other innovative capabilities include an advanced tracker that can lock on very small targets day and night, and its high penetration level due to its tandem warhead.

Spike SR is in full production and has been sold internationally.
