    BALASORE: The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is slated to test fire its patriot Advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile from a defence base off the Odisha coast against an incoming ballistic missile to assess the home-grown weapon’s ‘killing' capability. Reliable sources told The New Indian Express while the preparation was going on in full swing at the Abdul Kalam Island (formerly known as Wheeler Island), the test is likely to be conducted either on Sunday or Monday. More than one hundred scientists and technical officials are camping at the test facility for the crucial launching of the complex weapon system...

    In a bid to protect major Indian cities, the DRDO in the first phase has developed two-layered BMD system while the research and development is on to develop Phase-II anti-ballistic missile defence system, capable of destroying enemy inter-continental ballistic missiles fired from 5,000 km away. The first phase two-layered BMD system capable of killing enemy missiles fired from 2,000 km away is expected to be inducted in the armed forces soon.
