    India to have Sudarshan Chakra-like missile soon : West, News - India Today

    According to the Hindu scriptures, Sudarshan Chakra is the ultimate weapon of Lord Vishnu used for the destruction of enemy. The best part is it comes back to its original place after destructing the target.

    The myth will now be reality.

    In next few years, India will have its own Sudarshan Chakra-like deadly hypersonic potent missile.

    BrahMos Aerospace India Ltd (BAIL) is currently working on BrahMos II programme where scientists have taken inspiration from Lord Vishnu's weapon. Going at a speed of Mach 7, the missile would deliver the warhead, assess the destruction of target, come back and get ready to go again.

    Talking to Headlines Today, Dr A Sivathanu Pillai, CEO and MD for BAIL, said, "It is our dream to make the best weapon. Our mythology has given us a lot of inputs. Out of all gods, only one weapon is moving and is ready to go in nanoseconds at the command of mind. It destroys the enemy and comes back, and that is Sudarshan Chakra."

    Dr Pillai, considered to be the father of the world's fastest supersonic BrahMos cruise missile project, adds, "We have established a lead in supersonic missile. Definitely our country and its scientific community are capable of developing a hypersonic missile which is reusable. With technology changing every day and a sort of information war beginning in the world, there is a possibility of mind operating machines. Hypersonic vehicles with multi-use will reduce the cost putting payload in the orbit. It could deliver the payload at multiple points and it can come back. That is what we have thought of as our own version of Sudarshan Chakra."

    According to Dr Pillai, India will get this hypersonic missile in the next 5-7 years. At present, BAIL is working on the air-to-air missile, which should get ready by the end of 2014.

    Dr Pillai's ultimate dream is to establish a military industry complex which can provide all the weapons in the country. "We could be a self-reliant country in missile technology, but for that we need industry support," he said.

    I believe its a reporting error. They must be talking about the air launched brahmos which is an Air-to-Surface missile.

    Sounds awesome..so it's a reusable MIRV?

    Perhaps it could even be modified and used for our satellite launches.

    Three similar projects.
    1. HSTDV
    2. Brahmos 2
    3. Isro Reusable vehicle.

    all three will have same type of tech.

    No it is not. It is probably scramjet reusable rocket kind of UCAV and it's in initial stage of developemt , probably some wind tunnel prototype is under developement & testing.

    We have another concept based on scramjet propulsion named AVATAR from ISRO for the reusable rocket but it is also at conceptualization stage only, no news of any development so far.

    Btw Pillai is a big mouth, we have heard many dates from him for the air to surface Brahmos missile and now this is new date from him. Mr. Pilai is a very camera savvy salesman.

    Orbital reusable launchers under development:

    1. SpaceX reusable rocket launching system (USA)
    2. Blue Origin (USA)
    3. SpaceLiner (a mid-2000s German proposed suborbital, hypersonic, winged passenger transport concept) - Germany
    4. SpaceFleet (The EARL Project - a space-capable UAV concept) - UK
    5. PlanetSpace Silver Dart (a 2000s partially reusable spaceplane concept, based on a hypersonic glider design) - USA
    6. Shenlong Space Plane (an early 2000s Chinese proposed, scaled model tested at high altitude in 2005) - People's Republic of China
    7. Reaction Engines Skylon (proposed airbreathing SSTO spaceplane) - UK
    8. Avatar RLV (a late-1990s reusable Indian launch system concept for small payloads) - India

    make air-to-air missiles hyper-sonic to bring down bomber jets and also ballistic missiles.

    CM-400AKG is an air-to-surface missile developed by China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation. It can reach a speed of greater than Mach 5.5 in its terminal stage. Variants of the missile are operated by Pakistan and also in China as the YJ-12.
