    Sep 13 , 2011 at 12 : BALASORE: The Indian Air Force (IAF) and Bangalore-based Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE) personnel on Monday flight- tested a digital version of PTA ‘Lakshya’ from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) off the Orissa coast. “The micro-light aircraft fitted with an advanced remote controlled engine was test flown at about 12.50 pm from the launching complex-II. It was successful as we tested several developments made in the digital version of the unmanned aircraft,” said a defence official. This time the aircraft flew over 30 minutes during which all the parameters were tested, he said, adding that another round of trial will be carried out in a day or two. Earlier both the sea and land recovery versions of the PTA have been test flown successfully. The PTA, a sub-sonic and re-usable aerial target system, is remote controlled from the ground and designed to impart training to both air-borne and air-defence pilots. Apart from this, a series of nuclear- capable missiles will be test-fired this month. While preparation for the tests is in full swing, hundreds of DRDO scientists are camping at two test facilities of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) off the Orissa coast. The missiles which will be put under trial include land version of K-15 missile dubbed as ‘Shaurya’, surface-to-surface Prithvi-II and Agni-II. While Shaurya has been slated for tests any time between September 17 and 18 , Prithvi-II may be tested from September 22 to 24 followed by Agni-II on September 30 .
