The MICA missile is a dual-role weapon system designed for both short-range and beyond-visual-range air combat engagements, offering versatility in various combat scenarios.

The MICA IR variant features a passive infrared seeker, enabling it to detect and engage targets beyond visual range using infrared guidance, providing all-weather and day/night capability.

The MICA RF variant is equipped with an active radar seeker, allowing it to autonomously track and engage targets at short ranges with high precision, even in complex electronic warfare environments.

Both variants of the MICA missile are highly maneuverable, capable of performing complex evasive maneuvers to engage agile targets effectively.

It is equipped with a highly effective fragmentation warhead, ensuring high kill probability against a wide range of airborne threats, including fighter aircraft, helicopters, and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The MICA missile is compatible with various fighter aircraft platforms, including the Dassault Rafale, Mirage 2000, and others, providing interoperability within allied air forces.

It can operate within network-centric warfare environments, receiving targeting data from other platforms such as airborne early warning aircraft or ground-based radars.

MICA RF and MICA IR have seekers designed to counteract measures such as flares and chaff. The missile's rocket motor, equipped with a thrust vector control unit, enhances its agility.

By allowing the missile to be launched from unexpected angles or positions, LOAL capability increases the probability of target engagement and enhances the overall lethality of the MICA missile system.

The MICA missile has been exported to numerous countries and has gained recognition for its reliability, performance, and advanced capabilities, making it a sought-after air-to-air missile system globally.
