Chiron is a Korea's indigenously developed portable surface-to-air missile. Combined with the Korea's cutting-edge technology, the missile ensure superior accuracy, stability, and mobility, marking it as one of the invaluable assets.

The Chiron's maximum range extends to seven kilometers. This portable guided missile can neutralize aircrafts and helicopters at an altitude up to 3.5 kilometers at the speed of Mach 2.0. It provides close air defense against hostile aerial threat such as airacrafts, helicopters, and unmanned aerial vehicles infiltrating at low altitude.

The guided missile weighs 15 kilograms and extends 1.6 meters in length and eight centimeters in diameter. The reduced size and weight of the missile significantly improves the mobility. The infrared homing technology applied to the Chiron makes it unnecessary for the shooter to align at the target after launching the missile. The missile has a superior SSKP Single-Shot Kill Probability compared to conventional SAMs. The missile is equipped with advanced technologies, such as infrared counter-measures by infrared seeker, a dual-thrust system that enhances the missile's terminal velocity, and a new proximity and impact fuse. The missile's IFF identification friend of roe, developed by LIG Nex 1, enables the identification of enemy aircraft. The missile can also be operated at night if used with a night vision.
