Does it fullfill all the parameters , further details shiv
Thanks for eye candy
go go india the roar should be heard all over the world. Hamare seena chuvda hoga hai! yup is it correct.
go drdo go!!!!!
Details please! Altitude?Hit-to-kill?Which Radar?
DOES IT BETTER THAN S 400
How you got this pics when you are in Eygpt / Libya / Tunisia ?
Was it the Advanced Air Defence(AAD) test or Prithvi Air Defence(PAD) test??Going by the image it looks like the AAD…
Ok guys , I have to ask one stupid question which may not end up being so stupid after-all. Are these tests conducted by an independent agency or by the same agency that designed the missiles ? You know with launch time and trajectory known it is not that hard in this day and age to shoot down an incoming missile.
Congrats to India!!!!!!!!!!!hey aroor, is it true that that the chinese have a missile shield using kkv technolgy? Whta exactly is the kkv technology and how much more effective is it compared to the technology india uses for its missile shield?
DRDO will test this BMD for another 40 years.In the meantime indian govt will buy arrow or Patriot 3 missile defense system.
See you in 2050.
Whatever crap DRDO develop we have to put it in comparative trials against the competitors.
Dont waste taxpayers money in the name of R&D
God bless DRDO, may we develop a cruise missile interceptor one day!!!
@ Anon 638 and Taxpayer
even if comparative trials and foreign evaluators say it is good …it will still not be good for people like you, you will say that the results are rigged. that the evaluators were ordered to give the results that they gave!!…you will have a thousand arguments …you will keep asking proof of that nothing was rigged. You will ask them proof of the negative. That this is an impossible thing will not bother you.
your problem is with DRDO achieving anything…the thought that an Indian govt funded agency cannot achieve anything of worth is deeply ingrained in your brains. One could argue that it is based on so called 'past failures' and 'time n cost overruns' but a lot of the arguments in those two often turn out to be specious.Admitting the fact that DRDO did something of note will shatter your belief that you are better. But maybe..they are actually that good!!
So go home..evaluate why your response is they could not have done it in spite of facts pointing otherwise
@ Anon 6.38PM
The testing lab is ITR Chandipur and the design labs are ASL and RCI having their own directors. Though all the labs are part of DRDO, they are independent agencies in their own way with very specific functions. As for your second question about knowing the trajectory, the scientists might know the hostile missile trajectory but the interceptor missile system namely its radars and mission computer does not know the trajectory in advance. The interceptor missile system's radars have to track the position and velocity continuously and the mission computer calculate the trajectory and launch the interceptor missile accordingly.
CONGRATS DRDO AND INDIA.
Deplay them along the China Border. We may need atleast 800 to 1000 such interceptors.
Dr. Saraswat and DRDO folks repeatedly keep saying that we have matured in BMD capabilities. I understand that we have come far from where we started, but I have couple of questions on the BMD test conducted so far.
1. I believe we have tested hit to kill based on single warhead/missile. But has the DRDO ever simulated or tested MIRV and multiple incoming missile configuration. I am sure if you were a military commander and want to annihilate your enemy's nuclear power plant you will send multiple missiles or MIRV capable ones as a function of simple probability. You won't send one missile and hope it hits the target.
2. Dr. Saraswat said that this missile/tech can be used as a SAM. Have we simulated or tested our BMD system against incoming multiple fighters (proximity based tests)?
Can you please enlighten us on this or post this question to DRDO BMD missile men when you come across them?
@ verone….the chinese missile defence system is completely a farce…..there is no truth whatsoevr in it….
Launch and initial flight looks impressive. But did it hit a target in a trajectory. Is this interceptor capable of updating its flight course in mid flight.
Congratulations DRDO. On a realistic note, pretty sure that this was a very basic test which tested the defence when subjected to minimal challenges. A working algorithm is now in place. Now its all amatter of developong the algo rith to an extent that it can take multiple challenges thrown at it by the enemy missile.
So, it s a start and a lot needs to be done. If can be done at faster rate, a big export market is waiting with open arms for such system. It will be raining dollars and euros for India and DRDO.
best of luck, and hope DRDO capitalizes on this potential soon.
Y dont you shutup your mouth. And how much tax U pay.We know U are jealous paki. Y dont U tell your gov to make intersepter missile. Your country dont even have the guts test your so called ballestic misiles. And have put them in survice. Ghauri I, Shaheen I tested only once and inducted Know one knows if test was succesfull or not.Shaheen II, Ghauri-III, Shaheen-III never tested.And cant You read the blog properly which says that interceptor was succesfull.
MIRV's are an ABM's worst nightmare probably
The what if thing can keep going till the ABM looses the argument with the numerical capability of MIRV winning…
what if somebody comes at with you with 5 MIRV missiles with 10 warheads each…and if you do knock em all out….what if he comes with 10 missiles..
This is a ballistic missile defense program so it can face only the threats created by the ballistic missile which are in active in pakistan….
While considering a country like china, they have advance technologies like MIRV and they also have Icbm in their silo, Since icbm is based on atmospheric reentry, i think this technology will not be employed against chinese icbm threats…so i think this is purposely for pakistan…but the development of this technology will help in deploying these systems against an MIRV tipped Icbm….Go India Go…
Was it the Advanced Air Defence(AAD) testor Prithvi Air Defence(PAD) test??Going by the image it looks like the AAD…
Yayy! The Taxpayer is back, dude without your rabid comments this blog was getting a bit dull frankly. All you should worry about is Pakistani Taxpayer money invested on painting North Korean and Chinese missiles in pakistani colors will definitely go to waste once this system is inducted by 2015, and for that you wont have to wait too long and by 2050, i pray that Pakistan is still in existence.
