The HISAR-A+ is an upgraded version of the HISAR-A, short/medium-range surface-to-air defense missile system being developed by the Turkish Companies Aselsan and Roketsan since 2007. It can now destroy aerial targets at a maximum range of 15 km at a maximum altitude of 8 km, with 3 km more than the previous version. The HISAR-A is the short-range version in the HISAR family. The HISAR-A is based on a tracked armored vehicle ACV-30 manufactured by the Turkish Company FNSS.
The HISAR-A+ is based on a tracked armored vehicle chassis ACV-30 manufactured by the Turkish Company FNSS. The vehicle is fitted with four ready-to-fire missiles, with two launcher containers erected vertically on each side of the vehicle in firing position, while in road position, the canisters are stored on the roof of the hull.
The Hisar-A+ mobile platform unit is also equipped with a 3D search radar & IFF (Identification, friend or foe) a radar-based identification system designed for command and control, Infrared Sensors & Laser Range Finder, and Data Link. The Hisar-A can detect aerial threats at a maximum range of 25 km thanks to the radar mounted on the vehicle.
The tracked armored vehicle of HISAR-A mounts its own mast-mounted air surveillance 3D radar and an electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) system, allowing it to operate as an independent standalone system on 360° without the need to operate as a battery with a separate FCS (Fire Control System).
