    The Hindu : States / Andhra Pradesh : DRDO plans advanced missiles
    Indian missile technologists are planning to develop a host of advanced missiles, including a low-weight nano missileand a long-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) with a range of 300 km.
    SILVER JUBILEE FETE
    This was disclosed here on Monday by Avinash Chander,Chief Controller ( Missiles and Strategic Systems), Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) at a function organised to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of Hardware-in-Loop Simulation (HILS) facility at the Research Centre Imarat, a key missile laboratory of DRDO.
    Lauding the achievements of HILS during the past 25 years, he said RCI had developed advanced technology of avionics, including navigation systemsand was now on the verge of developing navigation on chip, telemetry on chip, seeker on chip and entire avionics on a single board.
    Referring to Akash surface-to-air missile system, he said the nextaim was to develop a 300 km range SAM. Besides, it was also planned to develop air-to-surface missile having a range of 400 km and air-to-air missile of 300 km range. Other world class systems, including underwater, cruise, sub-sonic and supersonic missiles would also be developed.
    KALAM’S PRAISE
    Former President and founder-director of Research Centre Imarat, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, who was the chief guest, praised RCI’s contribution to the country’s missile programme.Mentioning about convergence of technologies, he said when nano technology and ICT meet, integrated silicon electronics and photonics emerge and it could be said that material convergence would happen. Convergence of bio, nano and information technologies could lead to development of nano robots.
    RCI director, S.K. Chaudhuri, gave an overview of the work done at HILS. He said it was established for evaluation of flight systems, sub-systems and onboard mission software and integrated missile system performance from pre-launchtill its impact. HILS has transformed itself into a frontier aerospace technology for performance evaluation of flight systems.
    L.G. Akopyan, Designer-General-Deputy General Director of Moscow ResearchInstitute also spoke.
    Earlier, Mr. Kalam visited HILS, virtual reality lab and other facilities.

    Were you sleeping when Army and AF placed orders for Akash? After extensive testing that no other foreign SAM had to go through? 300 Km will be the LR-SAM based on Barak-II and AAD. It is already in the works. The MR-SAM should cover 70-100 Km segment.

    First understand what i meant & then jump , Akash been ordered by Air force & Army are they fully satisfied with the missile platform ??

    Trishul project was closed in 2008

    AAD/PAD doing well as per the news published

    Now DRDO has made a tall claim with a quantum jump from 30 to 300KM SAM , do u think this is true or possible ??

    May be insane people like you will buy this , which i respect :sad::rolleyes:

    People who believe in DRDO are either delusional or plain stupid.

    That will depend on successful interceptions, as for Akash the version ordered has a high rate and operational in IA ..

    ----------------------

    Regarding 300km SAM, Its already ready as its a Sling Shot project from Advanced Air Defense (AAD) itself.. >>

    But now this Missiles will enhanced and can be modified for 300-400km range with ramjet etc, In this sence you are looking into a 50% Complete System what left is is the modification on existing Akash radar and T-72 based launch platform, Not just a Claim..

    sir those who make fun of our own people dont have confidence in themselves, it is quite easy to buy something from outside but it is very difficult to make it here. If someone is doing that, these people make sure that they do it :tsk:

    One advantage of having home made System that they can be modified anytime with the needs at hand unlike with imported systems..

    Also tot helps alot as the same tech can be implemented in our own projects and systems..

    yeah with added stage it can go to 200 km, assuming its range is about 100km.

    Problem is these people are not making sure that the product is delivered on time.

    Why is it difficult to make it here ? If it so why making false promises which eventually causes delay in defence procurement.

    There are no plans for Astra as Short-Medium range SAM coz there is already an competition going for Short range SAM..

    And we have Akash for Medium range..

    Nonsense!! Why should i try ? Of course i will find it difficult, i am good at what i do like that i would expect so called scientists working in DRDO should be good at what they are working on. Just making comments like it is difficult to do so wont help at all.

    Btw these 300 kms range missiles are not first of its kind.
