It will be phenomenal....only USA and Rusiia have long range(> 250 km) SAMs...
Let us continue the discussion for missile defence here. Thanks
Any idea whats she is talking about in first part?
As she is project director of BMD.
Anyone could help add more candidates for this.
This is the first time I am hearing this. @sayareakd please share whatever you have on this project. Thanks.
Actually MKV work and few tests had been carried out by US which was later terminated (!). Now when she is saying it to be first of its kind in world, I am not sure whether she is talking of MKV or any other concept.
I am aware about that...........................
If she is talking about France that is in reference to SAMP/T shooting down Scuds. I guess she is just talking about shooting down a ballistic missile.
So what is your take on this?
Kinetic kill has been achieved, MKV is not likely IMO. What else could it be which is first of its kind in world?
What is MKV?.....................
Multiple Kill Vehicle. Basically its a version MIRV'd ABM. Multiple warhead to take down any warhead or individual MIRV.
Another feather in the cap of DRDO , well done chaps
Cant see, post it or describe it.............

What about a hypersonic kill vehicle to tackle targets in boost or mid course phase???
Its all done before, its something which is so urgent that GOI has released funds for it. Remember in previous interviews she said, no funds to test BMD.
They have funds for S400, but dont have funds to allow them to test BMD, drdo work on shoe string budget.
S400 might involve kickbacks while desi BMD doesn't have. Besides india's R&D spending is pathetic as compare to its military and political neighbour like China. India spends only 0.85% of its GDP which amounts to 66.5 billion US $ whereas China is spending 2.1% of its GDP which is 409 billion US $ as of 2010.
Yaa need to know what is it that DRDO has achieved now ??

Think so.... are they manipulating ???
What was the tweet about ?????
Not really. No one has tested Missile Defence at boost phase. US did considered it with multiple space based orbiting interceptor, but the missile defence act of 1999 prohibited anything like that.So now they are planning to do the same with DEW mounted on drones.
But for India, this is the most viable step and it is not the first time that it has been considered. This idea was there from long ago. With the range of missile which we are targeting in Phase I, we don't have to face challenges like that of US or Russia. We would be targeting missile with range of 2500 km max. So with a BMD shield coming up at Western front, we would get precious window of 120 to 150 seconds of detecting any launch and intercepting it at an altitude of 40 to 80 km and at a range of 150 to 200 kms.
Now this would be something which no one has ever tried.
