   SPYDER is a quick reaction, low level surface-to-air missile system designed to effectively counter attacks by aircraft, helicopters UAVs and precision guided munitions. The system provides excellent protection of valuable assets, as well as first-class defense for forces located in the combat area. The SPYDER system incorporates RAFAEL's most advanced, proven performance air-to-air missiles – the Derby active radar (RF) missile and Python 5, a dual waveband Imaging Infra Red (IIR) missile. SPYDER missiles have full commonality with the air-to-air missile version.
 
   SPYDER's truck-mounted Missile Firing Units (MFU) are equipped with both IIR and RF missiles. The MFU carries any combination (IIR/RF) of four missiles on a rotatable launcher assembly. The system's high mobility allows quick deployment and operational agility. The SPYDER System has 360° engagement capability during day or  night and under all weather conditions. The SPYDER System can engage multi threats simultaneously. It has Lock-On-Before Launch (LOBL) and Lock-On-After Launch (LOAL) modes of operation. The intercept envelope of the SPYDER system spans from less than 1km to 15 km, against targets flying at altitudes between 20 m and 9,000 m.
 
SPYDER's highly modular structure allows simple adaptations to customers’ platforms and future growth. A standard SPYDER missile battery has up to six missile firing units per battery and a command and control unit.
 
The truck-mounted Command and Control Unit (CCU)  comprises the Elta EL/M 2106 ATAR 3D surveillance radar. The surveillance radar has advanced ECCM capabilities and can simultaneously track multi-targets. Wireless data link communication enables deployment of the MFUs at a distance from the CCU. The CCU is also capable of operating with neighbouring SPYDER air defence batteries and share information with higher echelons. This interoperability capability provides the SPYDER air defense system with high flexibility in combat situations.
 
 
   SPYDER was developed in cooperation with IAI.
Python 5 is a fifth generation air-to-air missile and the latest member of the Python family. The missile provides the pilot engaging an enemy aircraft with a revolutionary full sphere launch capability. Python 5 can be launched from a very short range to beyond visual range with greater probability of kill and excellent resistance to countermeasures. The missile is also offered in an air defense configuration.
