Even if the targets are not stationary or if they are located in low visibility areas, the system can still locate them using an advanced infrared imaging (IRR) finder. As the name suggests, the missile can be launched from a variety of warships, including attack boats, frigates, and even small ships like corvettes, in coastal and blue waters, as well. than in archipelago environments.
Its characteristics also allow it to be launched on land. Designed for coastal defense, the system uses Rafael’s Spyder launchers, which allow for selected hits and controlled damage. The battery architecture allows independent launchers as well as integrated solutions with a command and control unit (CCU) and numerous sensors.
Sea Breaker uses AI to perform deep learning and data-driven scene matching, enabling Automatic Target Acquisition (ATA) and Automatic Target Recognition (ATR). Therefore, in areas where the signal is weak or unavailable, the system is always fully operational. The missile is immune to devices designed to trick or deceive radar, sonar or other detection systems, and it is also jam resistant.
Capable of zipping at high subsonic speeds, Sea Breaker achieves low altitude flight. This, combined with its multidirectional synchronized attack capabilities based on predefined attack plans, allows it to launch surprise attacks. With a penetration of 250 lbs (113 kg), it makes a single blow powerful enough to take out a frigate.
To top it off, the missile’s data link enables real-time decision making and tactical updates. The Sea Breaker also features a mid-flight abort capability and combat damage rating that allows operators to see the target after the missile is fired.
