    Missile falls in civilian area in Chirala of Andhra Pradesh


    A Surface to Air Missile test fired by the Indian Air Force from its Suryalanka Air Force Station fell in a civilian area in Chirala town of Prakasam district on Thursday night.

    No one was injured as the missile did not explode.

    The four-foot-long missile had four directional fins. It fell near the railway track adjacent to the compound of the Indian Leaf Tobacco Division (ILTD) of the ITC. The location where the missile fell is surrounded by houses.

    Chirala circle inspector Ramakoteshwara Rao told The Hindu: “The diameter is as big as the steering of a jeep. We do not know whether it has got explosives, but it seemed to have burned. It’s very hot”, Mr. Rao said.

    It was a Pechora SAM

    Sources in the know say it was a Pechora Surface to Air Missile (SAM) made in Russia. Indian Air Force is known to be test-firing missiles from Suryalanka station at this time of the year. “The missile will explode only when it fulfils certain conditions like velocity and altitude. Probably the booster did not shear off and hence it could have deviated from its flight path and as it did not fulfil certain conditions, it might not have exploded”, sources explained.

    In less than two weeks, India will test its Ballistic Missile Defence shield again, by launching an interceptor missile to kill an incoming “enemy” ballistic missile mid-flight.

    This is the fourth time that the Defence Research and Development Organisation will be testing its interceptor missile.

    While the incoming missile will lift off from the Integrated Test Range at Balasore in Orissa, the interceptor will blast off from the launch complex on the Wheeler Island, off Damra village, said V.K. Saraswat, Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister.

    A variant of the Prithvi missile will mimic the enemy’s ballistic missile trajectory. An Advanced Air Defence (AAD) missile will confront and kill it, in endo-atmosphere, at an altitude of less than 20 km. The launch window is between March 10 and 15. The Prithvi is a single stage, surface-to-surface missile that uses liquid fuel. The AAD is a single stage anti-ballistic missile that uses solid fuel. It is 7.5 metres long.

    The DRDO scored three successes in a row when its interceptor missile tests conducted on November 27, 2006, December 6, 2007, and March 6, 2009, were on the target.

    India likely to test-fire AAD missile tomorrow
    Balasore: With an eye to develop a full fledged multi-layer Ballistic Missile Defence system, India is likely to test-fire its indigenously designed and developed Advanced Air Defence (AAD) missile from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) off Orissa coast tomorrow.

    The AAD missile is capable of destroying any hostile ballistic missile at low altitude situation, defence sources said today.

    Range integration work at the ITR for the proposed trial is complete and the test is likely to be conducted tomorrow, they said.

    The target missile, a modified indigenously built 'Prithvi' posing as an enemy missile, would first be lifted off from a mobile launcher from the ITR at Chandipur-on-sea and the interceptor AAD missile using a radio frequency seeker on-board would be blasted off from Wheeler Island about 70 km across the sea from Chandipur.

    The missile would destroy the target in mid air over Bay of Bengal. The interception is to take place at low altitude, the sources added. .

    The seven-meter-long ADD interceptor is a single stage solid rocket-propelled guided missile, equipped with an inertial navigation system, a hi-tech computer and an electro-mechanical activator totally under command by the data up linked from the sophisticated ground based radars to the interceptor, defence sources said.

    The interceptor missile has its own mobile launcher, secure data link for interception, independent tracking and homing capabilities and its own radars, they said.

    Balasore district administration have made arrangements to temporarily evacuate about 600 families from five hamlets residing within 2 km radius of launch pad-3 of the ITR at Chandipur to nearby shelter camps as a security measure, official sources said.

    Interceptor missile test again in June


    BALASORE: After the aborted mission, Defence scientists are planning a fresh test of the country’s newly developed Advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile in June.


    This time, a new target missile will be used for the test.

    While its planned trial on Sunday was put off after the interceptor missile developed a technical snag in one of its sub-systems in the last minute, Monday’s trial had to be aborted as the target missile `Prithvi’ could not reach the pre-designated altitude leading to its deviation from the coordinated path.

    “The DRDO is contemplating to realise a new target missile during the proposed fresh test in June. The snag in the interceptor has, however, been rectified,” said a defence official here on Wednesday.

    The scientists involved in the mission are still analysing the cause of deviation of the target missile `Prithvi.’ “The missile could not reach its required altitude of 110 km. It reached a height of nearly 65 km and spiralled down into the Bay of Bengal after travelling 27 km.When the missile failed to come into the kill zone of the interceptor missile, no ignition was given for the interceptor to take off from the Wheeler Island,” said a scientist.

    The DRDO authorities claimed that the target missile lost its trajectory and that is why they could not anticipate the velocity with which it came down

    BrahMos’ vertical-launch test successful ​


    Bhubaneshwar: The vertical-launch version of supersonic BrahMos cruise missile was on Sunday successfully test-fired by the Navy from a warship in the Bay of Bengal off the coast of Orissa. "The missile was launched at 11:30 hours today from Indian Navy ship INS Ranvir and it manoeuvred successfully hitting the target ship. It was a perfect hit and a perfect mission," BrahMos aerospace chief A Sivathanu Pillai said.

    After today’s test, India has become the first and only country in the world to have a "manoeuvrable supersonic cruise missile in its inventory," he said in New Delhi.


    Pillai said the software of the missile, which has a range of 290 kms, was improved and today's test proved its capability of manoeuvrability at supersonic speeds before hitting the target. "During the test, the missile hit a free-floating ship piercing it above the waterline and destroying it completely," BrahMos officials said.

    The test-firing was part of the pre-induction tests by the Navy as moves are afoot to deploy the vertical-launch version of the missile in ships. The weapon system has been designed and developed by the Indo-Russian joint venture company. In separate messages, President Pratibha Patil and Defence Minister AK Antony congratulated the BrahMos scientists and the Navy for the successful test-launch.

    Dhanush, Prithvi-2 to Be Testfired Tomorrow

    Nuclear capable Dhanush and Prithvi-2 missile tests are likely to be conducted tomorrow, defence sources said here.

    "Agni-1, surface-to-surface single stage missile with 700 km range, will be taken up for test on Sunday," sources said, adding that Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) and operational strategic units of army and naval forces would jointly conduct the operation.

    They said nuclear capable Agni-1 would be test-fired from Wheeler Island, about 70 km across sea from Chandipur-on-sea.

    Prithvi-2, a missile with maximum range of 295 km, would be tested from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur, about 15 km from here.

    Dhanush, the naval version of Prithvi, would be testfired from a naval ship off the Orissa coast, the sources said.

    The supersonic cruise missile, Brahmos, jointly developed by India and Russia, had a successful trial on March 22, 2010 from a naval ship off the Orissa coast.

    India successfully tests N-capable Prithvi II, Dhanush missiles

    BHUBANESWAR: India early Saturday successfully tested two nuclear capable missiles Dhanush and Prithvi II in Orissa, an official said.

    "Both the missiles were successfully lunched same time at 5.30 hours," S.P. Dash, director of Integrated Test Range of Chandipur in Balasore district, told IANS.

    While Prithvi II surface-to-surface ballistic missile with a range of 350 km was launched from Chandipur, some 230 km from state capital Bhubaneswar, Dhanush, a naval version of Prithvi with the same range was launched from a naval ship off Orissa coast.
    Prithvi is India's first indigenously built ballistic missile. It is one of the five missiles being developed under India's Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme (IGMDP).

    The missile with a flight duration of 483 seconds reaching a peak altitude of 43.5 km has the capability to carry 500 kg of warhead.

    The missile which has the features to deceive any anti-ballistic missiles uses advanced inertial guidance system with manoeuvring trajectory and reaches the targets with a few metres' accuracy.

    Two versions of the missiles have already been deployed with the army and the air force. Saturday's test was conducted by the Indian Army as part of user trial to gauge accuracy in the presence of several defence scientists, sources said.

    Dhanush, which means archer's bow in Sanskrit, was launched by a team of the Indian Navy personnels trained by the DRDO, from a naval ship in the Bay of Bengal near coastal town of Puri, 56 km from here.

    Dhanush gives Indian Navy a capability of launching a missile onto enemy's targets with great precision.

    Fresh user trial of Agni-II on Monday from Wheeler's Island off Orissa coast

    HYDERABAD: After two failures in a row, a flight test of Agni-II, nuclear weapon capable intermediate range surface-to-surface missile, is scheduled to be conducted from the Wheeler's Island off the Orissa coast on May 17.

    A team from the Strategic Forces Command will conduct the “user trial” of the 2,000 km plus range weapon system.

    It will be picked up randomly from the production lot since the missile has already been inducted.

    Defence Research and Development Organisation officials told The Hindu that the test was meant to re-establish confidence and confirm the missile's readiness in the wake of two failed flight tests in May and November last year.

    On both the occasions, Agni-II tumbled into the sea after losing its speed and deviating from its flight path, just before the separation of the second stage of the missile. The two trials were carried out by Strategic Forces Command personnel as part of user training exercise.

    The officials attributed the failure during the previous tests to “quality-related problems” and said there was “no fundamental flaw” with the design.

    With the successful test-firing of the 3,500-km plus range Agni-III in February and the 700-km range Agni-I in March this year, this would be the first time that all the three Agni class of missiles will be tested in such a short time.

    The two-stage solid-propelled, Agni-II is 21 metres tall and capable of carrying a payload of one tonne to a distance of 2,000 km.

    It has a special navigation system to improve accuracy and a manoeuvring re-entry vehicle enabling it to change course during re-entry.

    It is also equipped with anti-ballistic missile defence counter measures.

    A file photo of Agni-II missile.

    "The trial is to be conducted from the Wheelers Island, about 120 km from here off the Orissa coast on Monday," the sources said.

    Range integration work in the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur and Dhamara for trial of Agni-II missile is near completion and if final check-up in the sub-systems of the missile is found to be flaw-less, the mission will be taken up on Monday, they said.

    A special strategic command force (SSC) raised by Army would conduct the trial with necessary logistic support provided by various laboratories of the ITR and Defence Research and Development Organisation scientists, the sources said.

    The indigenously-built Agni-II missile is a two-stage solid propelled ballistic missile. Its length is 21 meters, width one meter and launch weight is 17 tonnes.

    It can carry a payload of one tonne over a distance of 2,000 km. However, the range can be extended if the payload is reduced. The missile has already been inducted into the services and the SSC is in charge of the missile's operation.

    Agni-II, the intermediate range surface-to-surface ballistic missile, one of the key weapon systems of India's nuclear deterrence programme, was successfully flight-tested from the Wheeler Island off the Orissa coast on Monday.

    The 2,000 km plus range nuclear-capable missile was fired by personnel of the Strategic Forces Command from the Launch Complex on the Island at 9.18 a.m. It achieved its full range and splashed down at the pre-designated target in the sea with high degree of accuracy after a flight duration of about 660 seconds, a top Defence Research and Development (DRDO) official told The Hindu.

    Two naval ships tracked the vehicle homing on to the target, while a network of radars, telemetry and electro-optical instruments monitored the trajectory.

    This was the third time that Agni-II was tested in the last one year. On the previous two occasions, the missiles failed to meet the respective mission objectives after they deviated from the flight path and nosedived into the sea during the separation of the second stage of the vehicles.

    Agni-II, developed as part of medium and long range Agni series of missile systems, has already been inducted into the Armed Forces. It is a two-stage solid propelled system and equipped with a special navigation system to achieve high degree of accuracy.The system also is provided with anti-ballistic defence counter measures. It is capable of carrying one tonne payload over a distance of 2,000 km.

    Top brass from the Armed Forces besides Scientific adviser to Defence Minister and Director-General, DRDO, V.K.Saraswat and Director, Advanced Systems Laboratory, Avinash Chander were present during the launch.

    Nag hits target in three seconds after launch

    HYDERABAD: Anti-tank guided missile Nag on Sunday successfully destroyed the target in three seconds after its launch from a Nag missile carrier (Namica), Nag Project Director S.S. Mishra told TheHindu.

    Defence Research and Development Organisation's Chief Controller (Missile Systems) K. Shekhar, DRDL director and programme director of Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme P. Venugopalan and personnel from of the office of the Director General of Mechanised Forces were present during the test-firing.

    The test-firing proved the missile's capability of engaging a target at a close range of 500 metres. It was fired around 11 a.m. in the Army's Field Firing Range at Shamirpet, near here, by scientists of the Defence Research and Development Laboratory

    Proving short range capability was one of the “Qualitative Requirements” (QRs) from the Army.

    Final trial in July

    The Nag is equipped with (IIR) Imaging Infra-red seeker and a highly potent tandem HEAT (high explosive anti-tank) warhead. The day-and-night third generation missile with top-attack capability has a maximum range of four km. It is expected to be inducted by the Army after conducting final validation trials in the deserts of Rajasthan next month. Mr. Mishra said as many as seven missiles would be flight-tested during the July trials. Certain improvements suggested by the Army in connection with the operation of the Namica were carried out for validation trials.

    During the user trials in Rajasthan in the winter of 2008 and summer of 2009, the missile conclusively established its K-Kill efficacy (capability to kill) against both stationary and moving targets. The missile carrier's ruggedness was also proved during extensive transportation trials.
