Taiwan develops new TC-2 air-defence system

The National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology (NCSIST) in Taiwan has unveiled its newly developed TC-2 short-range tactical air defense system.

The TC-2 air defense system was revealed during the Taipei Aerospace & Defense Technology Exhibition (TADTE 2017). It is designed to engage aerial platforms operating at low and medium altitudes, integrated with radars for target acquisition and identification, both on the move and at rest.

Comprising a Target Acquisition Radar, Command and Control Center and surface-launched TC-2 system, this battlefield air-defense system is capable of engaging various aerial platforms within its operational altitude range.


The communication system, whether wire-based, wireless, or a combination of both, is utilized within the system, commanded by the Command and Control Center. The Fire/Control System interfaces are exclusively developed by NCSIST and are easily integrated with existing Target Acquisition Resources to form the TC-2 air defense system.

The TC-2 missile system is mounted on a high-mobility cross-country chassis, offering the capability to carry up to four surface-to-air guided missiles in container-launcher tubes.
