Description

The Misagh 1 is an Iranian man-portable infrared guided surface to air missile. It was developed by the Shahid Kazemi Industrial Complex in Tehran and is an all-aspect passive infrared homing system. It is a variant of the Chinese QW-1 Vanguard missile system, which is based on the Russian SA-16 Gimlet 9K310.
The Misagh-1 missile weapon system has been improved remarkably in fast reaction, attacking mode, guidance system, propulsion system, etc., while still retaining the main characteristics of previous portable anti-aircraft missiles, such as flexibility, maneuverability, easy operation and fire-and-forget homing. This missile weapon system, with excellent technical efficiency and combat performance, meets the needs of modern war.

Design

This system is comprised of; the missile in its disposable launch tube, a grip-stock firing unit and a replaceable battery/coolant unit which is mounted towards the front of the launcher all of which is contained in its transportable packing case.

Missile
The missile is guided by proportional navigation to the impact point with the target, whereupon a target adaptive homing circuit cuts in just before impact to ensure maximum damage is caused. Once the missile is launched, the gunner is free to seek protective shelter or make ready for the next engagement.
Operations
Normally operated as part of a two-man team the gunners can, on the march, carry the system on their backs by means of a harness. The operating sequence is as follows. The gunner is alerted by visual detection of a target. The assistant then selects a firing site and removes the front and rear covers of the launcher tube and raises it to the shoulder firing position. If identified as hostile, the firing trigger is depressed part way to activate the electric battery and coolant bottle to provide power and gas to the missile's systems. The gunner then aims at and tracks the target until continuous audio and visual signals are received. These indicate seeker lock on. The gunner then sets the lead angle and depresses the firing trigger all the way. Between 0.3 and 0.8 seconds later, the booster motor sends the missile out of the firing tube to a safe point where it is jettisoned and the dual-thrust sustainer motor kicks in to power the missile in flight.
Combat use
The Misagh-1 missile weapon system is a portable shoulder-fired, anti-aircraft weapon system against low and very low altitude targets by sudden attack in all directions. The target could be a high speed jet plane, a propeller-driven aircraft or an armed helicopter. It is a powerful weapon for air defense of pivotal points and covering field troops operation.
