    India Set To Launch Agni-II Plus Missile

    [​IMG]

    India is preparing for the first launch of an upgraded version of the Agni-II missile. Known as the Agni-II Plus, Agni-II Prime or A2, this nuclear-capable missile was developed by India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).

    This surface-to-surface missile can hit targets at ranges between 2,500 km and 3,000 km and is seen as a new warhead that would bridge the gap between Agni-II and Agni-III missiles, which have ranges of 2,500 km and 3,500 km, respectively.

    It is currently scheduled for a December launch and top scientists from DRDO’s missile complex in Hyderabad have already started preparations at Wheeler Island, off the Orissa Coast.

    Sources tell Aviation Week that the Agni-II Prime will be an improvement in terms of accuracy, distance and strength. “The launch preparations are on,” an official says. “This is part of DRDO’s extended campaign in December as we have scheduled some more launches.” The A2 will be most likely test-fired for the first time on Dec. 8. “The dates might defer, but the launch is [certainly] soon,” the official says.

    In addition to the ability to carry extra fuel, the A2 will have a new motor in its re-entry vehicle for better maneuverability and increased range. With a flex nozzle in the second stage to avoid anti-ballistic missile (ABM) defenses, the A2 has an improved navigation system onboard.

    The makers of the A2 at DRDO’s Advanced System Laboratory (ASL) in Hyderabad refuse to give any details of the missile launch. The A2’s launch comes soon after the Nov. 25 Agni-1 test-firing by India’s Strategic Forces Command as part of user trials.

    In an interview for Aviation Week’s India Thought Leaders series, ASL Director Avinash Chander says that India’s aim is not to create mass nuclear weapons, but to create deterrence. “We must be adequate enough to survive the first strike and we must be ready with an adequate response,” Avinash said.

    With the stage set for the A2 launch, all eyes are on Dr. Tessy Thomas, A2 Project Director (PD) for the DRDO. Tessy is India’s first woman scientist to head a missile program. In May 2008, the Indian government appointed Tessy as PD-A2. She was part of the Agni-III project as an associate director until then.

    The A2 program is also significant for DRDO as the majority of scientists working on this mission are relatively young. “This is the DRDO of tomorrow and we are not hesitant to hand over national programs to people who can deliver,” an official says. “A2’s success is sure to write a new chapter in India’s missile program.”

    BrahMos missile test-fired successfully








    BALASORE: India today successfully test-fired the 290-km range BrahMos cruise missile from the Integrated Test Range at Chandipur off the Orissa coast.

    The supersonic cruise missile with precision strike capability was test-fired from a mobile launcher at 1100 hours from the launch pad No. 3 of the ITR, defence sources said.

    "The trial was successful," they said. The missile, which can fly at 2.8 times the speed of sound, is capable of carrying conventional warheads up to 300 kg for a range of 290 km. The missile can effectively engage ground targets from an altitude as low as 10 meters, they said.

    The 8.4 meter-long missile is a two-stage vehicle that has a solid propellant booster and a liquid propellant ram-jet system.

    The Balasore district administration, on the advice of defence authorities, had temporarily shifted 3,220 persons belonging to 401 families residing within two km radius of the launch pad to two nearby shelter centres as a safety measures during the missile test.

    BrahMos is capable of being launched from multiple platforms like submarine, ship, aircraft and land based Mobile Autonomous Launchers (MAL).

    One regiment of the 290-km range BrahMos-I variant, which consists of 67 missiles, five mobile autonomous launchers on 12x12 Tatra vehicles and two mobile command posts, among other equipment, is already operational in the Indian Army, the sources said.

    The Indian Navy has begun the process of inducting the first version of BrahMos missile system in all frontline warships from 2005.

    BrahMos capability in mountain warfare tested

    India's supersonic cruise missile, BrahMos, was successfully flight-tested on Thursday from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur, Orissa. The Army executed the launch from its mobile launcher at the ITR at 10.55 a.m.

    The mission highlight was the missile performing tricky manoeuvres, rolls and a vertical dive towards the targeted area in the Bay of Bengal even as it flew at a velocity of 2.8 times the speed of sound. It was the missile's Block III version, boasting advanced guidance and upgraded software, that was tested. The flight established the missile's precision strike capability in mountain warfare.

    A. Sivathanu Pillai, Chief Controller, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), called it an important mission for the Army, which executed the launch perfectly.

    “The DRDO scientists had made a great contribution to the evolution of the new guidance scheme in this missile and it was a textbook launch,” he said. Telemetry and tracking stations and the Naval ships stationed near the target point confirmed the mission's success. The missile travelled its full range of 290 km.

    After a vertical take-off, BrahMos performed manoeuvres at different points in its range while cruising at a high altitude at a velocity of Mach 2.8, said Dr. Pillai, who is also the Chief Executive Officer, BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited. He declined to disclose the altitude at which it cruised.

    V.K. Saraswat, Scientific Adviser to the Defence Minister, described it as “an excellent launch.”

    “In terms of speed and accuracy, BrahMos is one of the unparalleled missiles. It is the only supersonic cruise missile in the world today,” he said. “BrahMos has a track record of successive successes both in its ship-launched and ground-launched versions against ship-based and land-based targets.” This was BrahMos' 24 {+t} {+h} launch.

    While BrahMos Block-I version is an anti-ship missile, Block-II is an Army version meant for attacking targets on land. The latest Block-III is meant for operations in mountain warfare where the missile has to hit the target with a steep dive, Dr. Pillai said.

    Army officers witnessed the launch. Defence Minister A.K. Antony congratulated the DRDO scientists and the Army on the successful test.

    The two-stage missile is nine metres long, has a diametre of 70 cm and weighs 3.9 tonnes with the canister. It can carry conventional warheads weighing 300 kg.

    Agni-II Prime being put on the launch pad ahead of the Range Integration Checks at the ITR at Wheeler Island on December 9.

    [​IMG]
    The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) scientists, engineers and system specialists have begun the last-minute preparations for the launch of the much-awaited Agni-II Prime missile from Wheeler Island.
    The missile's maiden test is now expected on Friday, December 10 from the Interim Test Range. The launch, which was originally scheduled for today (December 9), had to be postponed by one day due to inclement weather and continuous rain that hit the Orissa coast, due to depression.
    Sources confirm that the flight readiness review (FRR) meeting was held on December 8 and the crucial Range Integration Checks (RIC) are being held on December 9. "If the weather holds back, then we are sure for a launch tomorrow. The Met department says that it will be overcast for the next 24 hours with the possibility of slight drizzle. Though Agni-II Prime is an all-weather missile, we are keen to test it for the first time under normal circumstances so that we get every minute data during the launch accurately," an official said.While this piece is being pushed to the blogspace, the missile is already shifted to the launch pad with the launch managers engrossed in a series of internal and external checks.

    Agni-II plus missile test fails in Orissa

    India test-fired an upgraded version of the Agni-II nuclear-capable intermediate range ballistic missile off the Orissa coast. The test was declared a failure.

    The latest version of the "Agni" series missile is described as a two-stage, solid propellant rail and road mobile missile.

    Scientists at the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) said "the modified version of Agni-II will have better accuracy and range."

    While the present Agni-II missile has a strike range of 2000 km and Agni-III can target a distance up to 3500 km, the strategic new missile, Agni-II plus or premier would bridge the gap between Agni-II and Agni-III, a defence source said.

    Agni-II plus missile fails to achieve target

    Balasore, Dec 10 : The maiden test flight of surface to surface nuclear capable Agni-II plus missile, a modified version of the Agni-II strategic missile, from Wheeler island close to Dhamra coast on the Bay of Bengal, reportedly failed to fulfil the mission target.

    The missile, developed by the Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO), was test fired today from the launch complex four of the Test Range at 1001 hrs, ITR sources said.

    However, informed sources said the missile, which was slated to usher in a new chapter in India's missile programme, turned abortive and dropped in the Bay of Bengal minutes after test flight from the Wheeler Island.

    The Agni II plus missile, also known as Agni-II Prime or A-2, was supposed to be test fired from the Wheeler Island yesterday.

    However, inclement weather, following a depression in the Bay of Bengal, forced the ITR authority to postpone it till today.

    Scientists of the DRDO and ITR had anxiously monitored the test fire of the surface to surface missile both from the Wheeler Island and the Integrated Test Range at Chandipur on sea when it soared into the sky in a cloudy weather.

    According to Director General of DRDO D K Saraswat, the new missile would have a higher range, higher performance with respect to the thrust and weight ratio than Agni-II missile which has a range of 2,000 km.

    Being an upgraded version of the Agni-II missile, the new missile would be more accurate and powerful and perform better at various levels in terms of accuracy, strength and distance covered in comparison to Agni-II missile, the sources said.

    The surface-to-surface missile can hit targets in between 2,500 km and 3,000 km thereby bridging the gap between the Agni II missile which has a target
    of 2500 km and the Agni III missile having a target of 3,000 km.

    The Agni II plus missile could also carry extra fuel and will have a new motor in its re-entry vehicle for better maneuverability and an improved navigation system.

    The failed nuclear tests at Pokhran between 10th and 13th of May 1998 proved to be extreme blunder of the Indian History now. The impact and the set backs of these failed tests caused extreme frustration and unwilling changes in many plans which India was banking on since long.

    The main motive of 1998 nuclear tests by India was to completely push Pakistan to back foot. India was all set to give a clear message to the world that it has achieved complete supremacy in the South Asian region due to its Military might and with a stockpile of effective Nuclear Weapons. A huge country with enormous economic growth and unmatchable power of Conventional and Nuclear weapons could have brought great influence to India in this region and probably a confirmed permanent seat in the UN Security Council. There were also false claims made by RAW and Military High ups of India which led the then Prime Minister Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee to had been completely convinced that Pakistan was unable to initiate its own nuclear test in fear of International reaction. But, the most hyped tests were not only proved to be failed but subsequent tests by Pakistan on 28thMay 1998 completely shut the beak of the Indian ostrich. India still curses the loss of huge edge it got before Pokhran tests in 1998 which not only changed the power scene of this region but also threw India into many doubts about its own nuclear capabilities. Intelligence inputs suggest that India is facing another blow due to its failed Missile program which is also creating big head ache for the Military high ups. India is now on an emergency plan with the help of Israel to restructure its Missile program which was previously based on Russian technology. The Missile program now needs a serious upgrading and revamping because of growing challenges in the region. It is also widely believed that among many factors which are believed to be like American pressure and the fear of lack of International support, the possible attack on Pakistan after 26/11 Mumbai terrorism were backed off only due to sorry report of Indian Nuclear capabilities and spineless Missile system. It is also believed that it was after 26/11 when the reports of failed tests of Pokhran came into reality otherwise it was an internal secret before. Following is the complete report appeared on famous Indian News website of Times of India which clearly shows the frustration and complete helplessness of the Indians on the grave matter of dud nuclear tests. Times of India - Srinivas Laxman, TNN 18 September 2009, 01:44am IST //MUMBAI: Eleven years after India tested nuclear bombs in the deserts of Pokhran, embarrassing details about the test fizzling out have exploded into a full blown controversy with top nuclear scientists on Thursday demanding that the government institute an inquiry to determine whether the test failed. Former nuclear czars said they were ashamed that information had been hidden. Three former nuclear leaders -- M R Srinivasan, P K Iyengar and A N Prasad said in the wake of revelations by K Santhanam, project leader for Pokhran II, the government must order a peer review into the yield of the thermonuclear test of May 1998. Santhanam went public first on August 26, saying that the yield from the test was far lower than what prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's government claimed. On Thursday, in a newspaper article he disclosed embarrassing details saying the test was a failure because the yield was only 25 kilotons, nearly half of what the scientists had then claimed. He said that a meeting of scientists discussed the failure soon after the test and decided to hide it. He also pointed out that the failure meant that India now did not possess a credible nuclear deterrent, indicating that warheads on India's long-range missile could have far less punch than expected. R Chidambaram, former chairman of Atomic Energy Commission and the architect of the nuke tests; Anil Kakodkar, then director of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, and APJ Abdul Kalam who led the team from Defence Research and Development Organisation, have insisted the device operated according to its design specifications and the yield was 45 kilotons.At a meeting on September 5, the AEC dismissed the first statements made by Santhanam, saying through different types of analysis it was established that the yield of the thermonuclear test was 45 KT. Now, even scientists in Barc, the nation's top nuclear weapon establishment, doubt the claim. While saying he was surprised by Santhanam's article, M R Srinivasan, former AEC chairman, told TOI it was time for both Chidambaram and Kakodkar to clarify the situation. ``In such circumstances I think a peer review is certainly warranted,'' he said. At the same time he said he still stood by the official position and would support Chidambaram and Kakodkar regarding the yield of the thermonuclear test. ``A lot of information has been published and is on record. So I have really no reason to disbelieve at this stage either Chidambaram or Kakodkar on this issue. However, because of the current controversy, I think the best recourse would be for both of them to clarify the position through a peer review,'' he added. Former Barc director, A N Prasad, who has all along maintained that the thermonuclear test was anything but a success, said, ``The painful fallout of this episode is that the credibility of the nuclear scientific community and the respectable name of Barc is being damaged by a few at the top.'' In a direct attack on Kalam and Chidambaram, Prasad said: ``If all that Santhanam has written is true, then people occupying high places have misled the country. If all the data about the thermonuclear test has been held by one man (Chidambaram), then how can it be scientifically contested or debated? He has kept it under wraps.'' Stressing that there should be a probe by a committee constituted by the government, Prasad said that the team should comprise those having serious doubts about the yield of the test as well as experts who can include former nuclear scientists who have been raising their voices. ``It should not consist of only yes men. It should consist of those who are knowledgeable, who have the capacity to investigate such a serious matter,'' he said.``If this committee concludes that the thermonuclear test had completely failed then the government has played a major fraud on the people of this country,'' he said. Asked if the AEC itself can investigate, he replied: ``It has credibility, but no expertise.''Another former AEC chief, P K Iyengar said, ``The government should undertake an active investigation immediately following the statements made by Santhanam in the article. I am feeling really ashamed.'' Regarding a revelation in Santhanam's article that the thermonuclear device had not yet been weaponised like the fission devices, he said: ``How will they do it if they are doubtful about the yield? This itself is a clear indication that the test was not a complete success.''Both Iyengar and Prasad said the disclosures by Santhanam, that there was no disturbance to the shafts at ground zero, was also proof that the test was unsuccessful.// The above report is clear evidence that it can be possible that the actual yielded result of the tests could be lower than 25 KT, throwing Indian scientists into complete confusion and had badly shattered their confidence too. It is bad luck for the Indians that the report about the dud tests came at a point when India was all set to teach Pakistan a lesson of the lifetime after 26/11 Mumbai attacks. Amid all these circumstances the failure of Missile tests also aggravated the situation and made Indian Army think that in case of any serious confrontation between India and Pakistan, India would face unbelievable embarrassment if the Military would fail to hit the potential targets and loose the war heads too due to the crashing of Missiles in the middle of its approach or missing the targets completely. In the following report India clearly admits the failed cruise missile test //(AFP) –Jan 21, 2009 NEW DELHI (AFP) — A supersonic cruise missile jointly developed by Russia and India failed to hit its target in a test previously reported as successful, Indian military scientists said Wednesday. The Defence Research and Development Organisation, which Tuesday claimed the test of the BrahMos missile had been a "total success," said the missile had flown only in the general direction of its target. "The missile performance was absolutely normal till the last phase, but it missed the target, though it maintained the direction," BrahMos project chief Sivathanu Pillai told the Press Trust of India. The eight-metre (26-foot) missile weighs about three metric tonnes and can be launched from land, ships, submarines or aircraft, travelling at a speed of up to Mach 2.8. It has a range of 290 kilometres (180 miles) and is designed to carry a conventional warhead. The missile was fired from the Pokhran range in the western desert state of Rajasthan, bordering Pakistan, that was also the site of India's nuclear tests in 1998.The Times of India newspaper Wednesday suggested the failure was a result of an attempt to configure the missile to carry a nuclear warhead. Pillai did not comment on the newspaper's report but said his scientists were trying to debug the guidance system of a missile that had been tested 20 times in the past eight years."A new software used for this mission will be revalidated through extensive simulations and a flight trial will be carried out in a month's time to prove the augmented capabilities of the missile," he said.India and Russia -- its largest military supplier -- hope to mass produce the BrahMos for export. Nuclear-armed India, the largest arms buyer among emerging countries, has already begun arming its navy and army with the BrahMos as a tactical battlefield weapons system.The missile is named after India's Brahmaputra River and Russia's Moskva River.// Further to complete shock to the Indians another Missile test this time of Agni II also failed miserably to break the bone of India's hopes to claim itself to be self reliant in the missile technology. Times of IndiaTNN 24 November 2009, 12:28am IST //BALASORE: India's nuclear-capable intermediate range Agni-II missile, test-fired for the first time after sunset on Monday, reportedly failed to get the desired results. The Army test-fired the surface-to-surface Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) from Wheeler’s Island,Bhadrak district, around 7.50pm.‘‘The liftoff and the first stage separation was smooth. But it faltered just before the second stage separation and behaved erratically, deviating from its coordinated path. Further analysis is on to ascertain the cause,’’ said a source. The entire trajectory of Monday’s trial was tracked by a battery of sophisticated radars, telemetry observation stations, electro-optic instruments and a naval ship. The launch, originally scheduled in the first week of this month, was deferred due to some technical snags in its pneumatic system. Though the snags were rectified, another glitch surfaced during Monday’s test, leading to the fiasco, the source claimed. The nuclear capable 2,000-km-plus range missile has a length of 20 meters, a diameter of one meter, weighs 17 tonnes and can carry a payload of around 1,000 kg. It was first tested on April 11, 1999. The test launch was significant from India's strategic point of view because for the first time since the beginning of DRDO’s missile development programme, a missile was put under trial during night. The user trial was conducted by Army officials while scientists from DRDO were present to provide necessary logistical support // India after recent failures finds itself at a position where it can doubt its own capabilities to handle any nuclear assault either from China or from Pakistan in case of any future conflict in the region. India is now banking on the hopes that Israel would provide the technology of Jericho ground-to-ground missile system which may help India to substitute its garbage program of Cruise Missile and Multiple ranged Missiles which are definitely stuck in the intermediate stage and cannot be completely relied upon. The recent advancing relationship with USA is also helping India to shelve its own Missile technology and substitute it with already tested and dependable technology which America would offer to India to wipe out the sorrow of the failures on the technological front. The set backs after shameful failures in Nuclear and Missile technology left India with no choice but to look towards USA, Israel and Russia to provide their own tested Missiles and few Nuclear Weapons too to maintain its inventory with dependable and trusted Missiles and warheads. But to achieve that, India could be giving many concessions to these countries including access to the testing, production and storage sites of Nuclear weapons and Multiple ranged Missiles.

    A correct answer to the idiortic gentleman who posted this is to testfire an AGNI-II missile towards pakistan and take down the developments made by our scientists and show pakistan and the world too that INDIA possesses what it is saying about their missile programs. This will stand as a proof for pakistan that INDIA has a powerful missile development program which is also reaching high platforms in the field of missile technology...........

    Please avoid posting such propaganda (the article above) here!!

    People such as the above writing articles without proper sources/references should be avoided, if you have any credible News Agency (even a credible blog with a good track record of reporting news such as Livefist) please share them. Fanboy sites such a Rupee News and above should be avoided even if you intend to make fun of them!!

    Agni 2 – Plus launch a failure : DRDO


    Experimental Launch of Agni-II plus or premier experienced a trajectory deviation immediately after the lift-off having failure of the Mission. Detailed analysis is in progress. Many new technologies like Composite Rocket Motor, indigenous Ring Laser Gyro based Navigation System, Road Mobile Launch were being tested in this Mission. Many of these new technologies have been proved.

    Agni 2 P is a new version of the Agni 2 missile. Like most new tests of Indian missiles, DRDO is testing new designs, materials and technologies. The failure of the test does not mean a setback for the entire program. The Agni 2 is a proven missile. Agni 2 Plus will be a better variant.

    Agni II Plus was tested fired from the launch complex four at Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Wheeler Island off Orissa coast in inclement weather.

    Agni-II plus or premier will fit between Agni 2 and Agni 3. The surface-to-surface missile can hit targets between 2,500 km and 3,000 km away, thereby bridging the gap between the Agni II missile which has a target of 2500 km and the Agni III missile having a target of 3000 km.

    DRDO to test advanced defence interceptor next week


    Undeterred by the December 11 failure of Agni-II prime ballistic missile test flight —— the missile fell into the sea a few seconds after launch —— the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is planning to test the advanced Air Defence Interceptor on December 22 and 24. Two earlier tests of the interceptor ended in failure.

    The test on Wheeler Island off Orissa coast will see an interceptor missile destroy an incoming ‘hostile’ missile mid-flight over the Bay of Bengal. This test, sources said, is meant to observe the “operational effectiveness of the indigenously developed high-speed interceptor missile”.

    A modified Prithvi missile, to be launched from the Chandipur Integrated Test Range, will “mimic” a hostile ballistic missile, the sources said.

    The DRDO will also flight-test the indigenously developed micro-light drone Lakshya at the Chandipur Test Range on December 20. Lakshya is a sub-sonic, re-usable drone meant for aerial reconnaissance of battlefield and target acquisition. Lakshya has seen nearly 200 launches so far. It was last successfully tested in November 2009.


    Lakshya can be launched from land as well as a ship and then recovered by a parachute system on land or at sea. It’s Ground Control Station and Telemetry Station allows pilotless control of aircraft and real time data acquisition.

    Little correction in the report, the date of the test was 10th December, 2010, clearly typo, however, good to see their spirit, A2P would surely be better variant. Looking out for AAD test's success.
