India’s Akash interceptor missile test fired successfully

India’s indigenous surface to air missile (SAM) Akash was successfully test fired from the integrated Test Rage at chandipur, about 15km from Balasore. The missile has a strike range of 25km with a warhead of 60kgs, was test fired from a mobile launcher from launch comples-III of the ITR at about 1108 hours. Defence sources said, “During the trial, the missile was aimed at intercepting a floating object supported by a pilotless target aircraft, flown from launch complex-II, at a definite altitude over the sea”. Akash, an anti-aircraft defence system, can simultaneously engage several targets with Rajendra radar developed by the Electronics and Radar Development Establishment(LRDE), a Defence Research Development Organisation(DRDO) lab in Bangalore. Rajendra is a ‘passive phased arra radar’. It is a multifunction radar, capable of tracking as many as 64 targets and controlling up to 12 missiles simultaneously. Rajendra does the surveillance, tracks the target, acquires it and guides the missile towards it. “The user-specific trial, which formed part of the country’s routine air defence exercises, was successful,”...

India successfully tested it’s nuclear capable ballistic missile Agni-IV from an island off the odhisa coast. This missile has the range of 3000km  and was developed indigenously after world powers denied missile technology to India. Ring Laser Gyros for Internal Navigation System (RINS) and Micro-Navigation System (MINGS) was developed in Research Centre Imrat (RCI), Hyderabad complemented each other in redundant mode were successfully flown in guidance mode for the first time, said DRDO.   The high performance onboard computer with distributed avionics architecture and high speed reliable communication bus and a full digital control system have controlled and guided the missile to the target with very high level of accuracy.All the radars and electro-optical systems along the coast of Odisha have tracked and monitored all the parameters of the vehicle. No satellites where used during this test and two naval ships located near the target witnessed the final event, the sources said. Watch the Launch video after the jump,...
