    Drdo's Saraswat : India’s missile defence shield ready ; to be put in Delhi

    Welcome news

    ============================

    New Delhi: VK Saraswat, the chief of Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO), has disclosed that the country’s missile defence system is ready for induction.

    As per a report in The Indian Express, while speaking on a TV show Saraswat said that as part of the system a two-layer shield – the AAD (advanced air defence) and the PAD – will be put in place over Delhi.

    The system has already undergone four tests as part of which incoming missiles were intercepted and destroyed.

    According to Saraswat, Prithvi missiles were modified and used as incoming missiles. The tests showed the system can hit missiles with a range of over 2,000 km.

    The DRDO chief said the Indian missile defence system is comparable with the US Patriot 3 system.
