Shiv, Look Prithvi is just another piece of equipment. When they are in actual deployment a lot of issues surface which cannot be seen in tests (equivalent to test drive in simulated conditions). That is why there is warranty given by the equipment producers. For example look at Russian Missile Launch failures. Even if you order F-18 SH, such problems will come up. SH has landing gear problems which have not yet been rectified. Battery leak is not a Prithvi specific problem. Battery’s leak. Battery is not a DRDO product. Take for example of Exide making batteries for Indian Navy… Read more »

Shiv, The “nit pick” was only a “suggestion”. Ok, I more missile at you “copy and paste reports”. I will end at that. You know what I mean. A word on Krasnopol incident in IA:This a production and quality control problem. Its not a R & D problem. I hope you get it. The R&D passes a product to the producers as the R&D is not a production unit (Ditto for DRDO and HAL, OFB, AVRDE debate) Krasnopol on its own is a technology worth emulating. IA requires TACMS IRTGSM is possible by RCI considering NAG has been cleared for… Read more »

Hello Mr. Aroor. IIR seeker of the Nag has been completed, and user trials for the same are scheduled this year. However I think that by the term “Mother” missile, a type of MIRV weapon may be inferred to. The development of this technology may be a long-term project, and thus it may not be an immediate priority (already, Pakistan’s missile of the Hatf series I to VII can be neutralized by PAD after it is developed fully in 4 years’ time; it’s unlikely that MIRV technology is being pursued by Pakistan). Thus, as the targets laid down in the… Read more »

Hi Shiv It is good to see a mainline reporter setting up a blog and inter-acting with his audience/critics. On the whole I agree with your criticism of slow pace of Drdo work. Having said this, one should also focus on some good work done (if any). As a reader of news myself, I feel that positive has its own feel good factor and there is too much emphasis on negative scoops. Have you ever tried to find out more about the sensor fused fencing done by TATA’s through NALCO. I understand it was almost Rs. 500-1000 crore project with… Read more »

Shiv

What couple of decades work on PGMs? If you read the report, its clear that PGM development has only begun recently. The only thing comparable to a PGM is the Nags seeker tech.

Having worked on Prithvi I can state with cent per cent confidence that its CEP is = best in the class worldwide, but there you were claiming that it had poor accuracy in your reports, cant expect a journo to understand technology or be accurate i guess.
