    @sayareakd , can you please answer the following-

    1. Is there any ballistic. missiledefense project to intercept hypersonic missiles and boost glide vehicles like the Wu-14?

    2. Is the AAD capable of intercepting ballistic missiles with quasi ballistic trajectory and hypersonic glide vehicles like the Wu-14?

    3. What is the range of AAD and PDV missiles?

    4. Has work commenced on the phase 2 part of BMD shield?

    1. No
    2. Very difficult, mostly No.
    3. PDV about 150-100 KMs, AAD about 25-40 kms
    4. yeah

    PDV is first stage of one of vehicle of Phase2, so we have 1.5 stage :balleballe:

    I mean what is the slant range of PDV and AAD? Not their altitude coverage. How is PDV different than Pad?

    Swordfish has a range a little more than 2000kms for tracking ICBM,IRBM or SRBM size objects ..

    Our longest tracking radar is MOTR which has a range of tracking targets at 4000-5000kms..

    Its military designation is unknown, MOTR is a ISRO design which has a military version ( Under collaboration with DRDO ) in active service ..

    DRDO-Owned & Navy-Operated MRIS Vessels Take Shape, As Does The S-3 SSBN

    The first of two DRDO-owned and Indian Navy-operated Missile-Range Instrumentation Ships (MRIS) is presently undergoing outfitting alongside the 560-metre jetty of the MoD-owned Hindustan Shipyard Ltd (HSL) in Visakhapatnam. Officially dubbed as an Ocean Surveillance Ship (P-11184), its keel-laying ceremony had taken place on June 30, 2014. Sanctioned at a cost of Rs.1,500 crore, this MRIS is expected to be commissioned into naval service by the first quarter of 2018 (instead of the original deadline of December 2015).

    [​IMG]

    The MRIS, when operational, will host two types of tracking radars: a long-range L-band active phased-array tracking radar for monitoring the flight trajectory of ballistic missiles like ICBMs and SLBMs, and an X-band precision tracking radar, this too being an active phased-array type that will be used for tracking the in-bound flight trajectories of MIRV-type warheads. The long-range L-band active phased-array tracking radar will be a derivative of the indigenously designed and developed L-band, monopulse Multi-Object Tracking Radar (MOTR) that is now operational at ISRO’s Sriharikota-based Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SHAR).

    [​IMG]

    The second MRIS is being built at a cost of Rs.425 crores by the Kochi-based Cochin Shipyard Ltd and is expected to be delivered by late 2019. Contract for this vessel was inked in early August 2015. Once ready, this 130-metre-long MRIS will be equipped with a smaller version of the MOTR, known as the M-MOTR, as well as X-band active phased-array precision-tracking radar. This MRIS will be used for monitoring the flight trajectories of long-range subsonic and supersonic land-attack cruise missiles, especially during their terminal phases of flight.

    I think those are the ranges of the Ballistic missiles. The instrumented range of the radars will be different.
