SPIKE FAMILY OF MISSILES
Hit targets accurately with the missiles of the SPIKE Family. Used by 39 nations, including 20 NATO members they are among the most combat-proven anti-tank solutions in the world. Suited for land, air and naval platforms, the SPIKE Family’s 5th generation electro-optical missiles provide unparalleled performance, enhanced lethality, survivability and deterrence for the Warfighter.
These highly reliable, multi-purpose missiles enable true precision strike capabilities with the utmost accuracy, incorporating advanced technology, high reliability and low Life Cycle Costs (LCC). SPIKE’S broad deployment and user base enables customers to collaborate with full commonality and interoperability between all the NATO and EU formations on operational and logistics levels.
FIREFLY tactical weapon system is a revolutionary, innovative miniature electro-optical tactical loitering munition designed for light maneuvering ground forces such as Infantry, Marines or Special Forces.
FIREFLY was designed for the dismounted soldier fighting within the urban arena where situation awareness is limited, the enemy is behind cover, and precision is critical. The impact of FIREFLY on the Infantry is revolutionary, fundamentally changing small Infantry tactics.
FIREFLY – also known as SPIKE-FIREFLY – is a new variant of Rafael’s SPIKE Family Precision Guided Missiles. As such, FIREFLY features a dual seeker, target tracker, homing algorithms, computer vision, Safe & Arm fusing mechanisms, and HMI (Human-Machine Interface). These features served as a basis for the development of FIREFLY and the tailoring of the weapon system to its unique mission profile of urban combat.
FIREFLY weighs only 3kg, is rapidly deployed, and enables the attack of Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) targets commonly found in urban combat. FIREFLY will essentially eliminate the value of cover and with it, the necessity of long-drawn-out firefights. It will also make obsolete the old infantry tactic of firing and maneuvering to eliminate an enemy hiding behind cover.

A Shoulder-Launched “Fire & Forget” Short-Range Missile with a 2km range
Continuing the tradition of the Spike family of missiles, Rafael is proud to introduce a new member. The Spike SR™ utilizes 3rd generation electro-optical seeker technology in a versatile, light weight multi-purpose missile for use by the infantry platoon or section.
It has a high probability of hit against stationary and moving targets because of the state-of-the-art dual (day/night) electro-optical seeker, including un-cooled Infra-Red (IR), high resolution Charged Coupled Device (CCD), and optimized tracker.
Spike SR is tailored to the needs of light operational forces in current and future conflicts. It is optimized for use in a large variety of operational and environmental scenarios. The short time interval from power-up to operational readiness enables engagement of targets which are exposed for brief time intervals. Spike SR’s rugged design and operational simplicity provide the Warfighter with the versatility and rapid response capabilities which are essential in modern asymmetric and near peer combat

Extended Range 5th Generation EO-Guided Missile System for Ground, Air & Maritime Overmatch
SPIKE ER2 is an extended range 5th generation multipurpose,
multi-platform, multi-domain electrooptical guided missile system, designed for the complex challenges of modern warfare.
The SPIKE ER2 missile offers the optimal weight-to range
ratio, allowing standoff of up to 10-16 km while weighing only 34 kg. This capability enables light and agile platforms (ground, rotary, or maritime) to be modernized while maintaining their maneuverability
The system’s enhanced capabilities enable precision engagement of either direct or non-line-of-sight targets from the ground, in the air, at sea ‒ delivering unprecedented tactical overmatch for ground tank
hunter units, attack helicopter squadrons, and naval flotillas
