Since BSNL is also PSU , I am posting it here
AFAIK this is the AD-2 exoatmospheric interceptor .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?

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.
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.
Me thinks BSNL only takes a cut from Government projects and subcontracts it to privates.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..
Not curiosity, just an idea which cropped up in my mind. There are many such mails which I've sent to DRDO on various other subjectsseriously bro you ended up emailing director ADE inorder to satisfy your curiosity.
The director must have got paralyzed with disbelief
You are one crazy fellow
I think you was drunk on lau pani
This is old enough to put me in nostalgia
no surprise OFB is full of congress and communists now it's should be even more compulsory to corporatize them and kick out all the scums.At It Again: No Capacity to ImproveOFB 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..
More than 80,000 civilian employees of India’s 41 ordnance factories will go on indefinite strike from October 12 in protest against the Centre’s decision to corporatise weapon and defence equipment manufacturing units run by the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) of the Union defence ministry.www.hindustantimes.com
