    Rafael unveils I-Derby ER BVRAAM

    Rafael Advanced Defense Systems is set to enter the long-range air-to-air missile (AAM) arena, with an evolution of the I-Derby missile.

    The new beyond-visual-range (BVR) AAM, known as I-Derby ER, retains the legacy Derby (which is now no longer made) missile's airframe, but introduces new capabilities with a dual-pulse rocket motor, and a replacement for the Israel Aerospace Industries-developed travelling-wave tube radio frequency (RF) seeker.

    "The additional pulse [solid state rocket motor] is initiated by the missile's flight control system [automatic pilot], which manages the flight plan of the missile.
