OK. So it looks like AD-1 or AD-2 missile could be based on Shaurya SSM. Shaurya SSM is 6.2 tons and 10 meters long. The poster below lists SLS capability as "launching articles of up to 7 tons weight" and a loading mechanism: "highly accurate 10 meter long article guiding mechanism". Another poster on the blog (source linked below) shows diagram of the loading mechanism in action.

Shaurya SSM has a lesser throw weight at 1 ton compared to 2.5 tons for Agni-1 (both at 700 km range). Agni-1 booster used on the PDV Mk-II missile used for anti-satellite test was later confirmed capable of taking out targets upto altitudes of 1200 km. Which means AD-1/2 missile is not going to be able to fly to those altitudes. But it still might be capable of reaching lower parts of the LEO (Low Earth Orbit), thereby giving AD-1/2 missile limited ASAT capability.

The satellite pics show 4 SLS being fitted onto the DRDO ship. So maybe they plan to test out AD-1/2 missile capablities against a salvo of ICBM-trajectory mimicking missiles?

What about the radar? @porky_kicker do you know the range of that Dual Panel Long Range-MFR being installed on that ship? Is it comparable to LRTR Mk-II? Is LRTR Mk-II even operational?

_______________________________________________Slight off-topic note____________________________________
As an aside, in the Prasun Sengupta blog post I linked above, he misinterprets the posters of the company that manufactures DRDO designed missile launchers. In the last poster on SLS, three different launchers are shown. One is SLS, then Akash (possibly NG variant) and then the Tilter-cum-Launcher (ADV MkII launcher). He then proceeds to explain how SLS has a "variant" to launch the Akash NG. Earlier he calls SLS a "universal" launcher.
:yawn:
Earlier, when I used to read his blog, I thought he must have some sort of insider information or something. But looks like not only is he quite clueless, but also very poor at basic comprehension.
AFAIK this is the AD-2 exoatmospheric interceptor .

No idea on range of LR-MFR

AFAIK LRTR-3 radar was under testing long time back , no idea on operational status. I am not sure, but LRTR-3 could be the VLRTR , DRDO has a habit of using multiple names for the same product in order to hide the development of the same. anyways one unit of VLRTR is operational.

LR-MFR radar functionality is more or less same as that of MFCR . It has no correlation with LRTR which is a long range search and track radar . MRCR primarily acts as a FCR.

Rest of your queries already answered in my last 3 or 4 posts.

Better sell of BSNL.. Had been to a local BSNL office in my native town to get an internet connection 3 times.. I was just made to run around without any result.. They are just too secure in their jobs to work..
Me thinks BSNL only takes a cut from Government projects and subcontracts it to privates.
No idea why it needs lakhs of employees when most of its projects are turnkey, even maintenance is ooutsourced

Two examples below

The Andaman Nicobar Optical Fibre project was actually done by Japanese firm called NEC

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), a Government of India Enterprise, and NEC Technologies India Pvt. Ltd. (NECTI) announced today that a purchase order has been placed by BSNL for NECTI to design, engineer, supply, install, test and implement an optical submarine cable system connecting Chennai and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands (A&N Islands). NEC Corp, the parent company of NECTI, will manufacture the optical submarine cable and provide technical assistance during the turnkey implementation.


https://telecom.economictimes.india...29-cr-order-from-bsnl-stock-surges-5/70758975

New Delhi, Himachal Futuristic Communications Ltd (HFCL) on Tuesday said it has bagged Rs 2,467 crore order, its largest purchase order so far, for a turnkey project from public sector telecom service provider BSNL.

"The project has an additional operations and maintenance (O&M) component of Rs 862 crore to be realised over a period of 10 years from the commissioning of the project," the company said.
Funded by the Department of Telecom (DoT), the turnkey project entails design, development, deployment and maintenance of converged nationwide IP/MPLS backbone with 219 X Access Networks and Integrated IMS based communication solutions under Network for Spectrum (NFS) programme of the Central government.

At It Again: No Capacity to Improve
OFB is at it again. Demanding they be given monopoly rights for their mal so that Indian Armed Forces continue to remain deficient of ammunition, the ammunition produced by them remains in the rejected state without any refund of money to the Army and they continue to kill soldiers on ranges due to faulty and defective ammunition.
One look at overhead charges lavied by OFB on their indigenous Non-Functional Mal can be embarrassing. They are running five-star guest houses at more than 70 locations to comfort their asses at the cost of overcharges paid by the Armed Forces.

What atmanirbharta are we up to if we can not make changes in the Colonial setups of the OFB producing saltpeter for bandookbaj..

Ordnance Factory Tiruchirappalli launches Stabilized Remote Controlled Gun
The Ordnance Factory of Tiruchirappalli (OFT) has launched an indigenously manufactured weapon named stabilized remote controlled gun (SRCG).

A dedicated assembly and testing facility were also opened for manufacturing the weapon here. Defence minister Rajnath Singh launched the weapon through video-conferencing on Monday as part of Atma Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan (self-reliant India mission).

OFT officials said the SRCG fitted with 12.7mm M2 NATO standard machine gun, is designed for marine applications.


It will be mounted on warships and patrol boats and can remotely engage small boats, skiff and other small crafts with high accuracy both during day and night.

“Equipped with sensors, the weapon has an automatic target tracking capacity. The gun can be fired manually even in case of malfunction,” C Ariya Sakthi, works manager, OFT told TOI.

At an estimated cost of Rs 2.8 crore, the assembly and testing facility produces the weapon for Indian Navy and Coast Guard.
The indigenous manufacturing will save Rs 167 crore, officials said. The new weapon will provide a business opportunity for Rs 255 crore per annum for the next four years to OFT and other sister factories. While the gun will be manufactured in Trichy, a contract is placed by integrated headquarters, ministry of defence on Elbit Systems, Israel for transfer of technology (ToT) for SRCG.
