    @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.

    Now a days DRDO it appears test little of PAD and PDV.
    AAD tests have increased.
    It appears that AAD has become same thing for BMD, what Prithvi has become for BM.
    It means work horse to test new tech for BMD.

    That's because AAD is the last line of defence against Ballistic Missiles. We have to ensure killing of BM with AAD, since China employs Tactical Ballistic Missiles as well

    That's the same launcher they showed for Prahaar missile, which was supposed to be a variant.
