TN | It's a great feat & recognition for L&T shipyard that were not only able to win confidence of US command but give a better offer than all those who were in competition for this : Defence secretary Ajay Kumar on US Naval ship arriving to India for repairs for first time ever

DRDO anti-torpedo torpedo

It's not exactly anti-torpedo torpedo like atlas elektronik seaspider which homes into the torpedo.
The design is similiar to Rafael Torbuster which is basically a hard kill decoy, it lures the torpedo close enough while remaining still itself and then detonates when enemy torp is near. Advantage of such a design is launch from current mareech launchers, whereas a proper anti-torp torpedo would require new launchers.

I don't think DRDO has any ongoing anti-torp torpedo project, only a hard kill decoy called Mohanastra.

Keep an eye for this it might become a huge business for private sector. Reliance was targetting this before pipapav. But they fucked up with pipapav .
