Part of the Missiles and Weapons cluster of EDGE, the company also provides special manufacturing solutions, and automation and robotics consulting, and advisory services that help customers achieve their operational and tactical goals.

With its HAS-250 ((HALCON Anti-Ship 250), the UAE-based company HALCON has developed a new generation of an anti-ship missile to equip naval forces with the highest performing cruise missile system.

The HAS-250 is a UAE-designed and developed surface-to-surface missile capable of traveling at speeds of up to 0.8 Mach, with a range of over 250 km. During its terminal phase, it can fly towards its target at a sea-skimming altitude of below 5 m. With a solid propellant and HS-350 turbojet engine, the missile has a gross weight of 1,200 kg and is fitted with a 200 kg warhead. It has a length of 5.4 m and a diameter of 435 mm.

The HAS-250 anti-ship missile features a seeker with an active/passive radar radio altimeter for greater precision against naval and coastal targets. Offering mission planner wide flexibility, the missile can operate at altitudes up to 3 km and as low as 5-10 meters above the ground.

At IDEX 2021, the International Land Defense Exhibition that was held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, HALCON has also presented a mobile coastal missile defense system based on a 6x6 ASTRA truck chassis HD 6648. The rear of the truck chassis is fitted with two launcher containers able to fire the HAS-250 anti-ship missile.
