The Integrated Guided Missile Development Program (IGMDP) was formed in
1983 with the aim of achieving self-sufficiency in missile development &
production and today comprises of five core missile programs ² > the strategic
Agni ballistic missile, the tactical Prithvi ballistic missile, the Akashand Trishu l
surface-to-air missiles and the Nag anti-tank guided missile. The program has
given India the capabilit y to produce indigenous missiles in other key areas and a
few µkno wn¶ missiles under development have been listed below. By enforcing the
M issile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) to stop supplies of all kinds o f
m issile material, W estern nations are trying to prevent India from developing
these strategic and tactical missiles. Undaunted by this high-level conspiracy,
hats o ff to all the brilliant Indian scientists w ho have toiled so hard, in their
dedicated efforts that they managed to develop these missiles.

T he Agni (Fire) is an Intermediate Range Ballistic M issile which had begun develop ment
in 1979. It became part of India¶s Integrated Guided M issile Development Program
(IGM DP) in 1983.

The Agni-1 is a short-range, road/rail-mobile, solid-propellant ballistic missile. Falling between

the short-range and medium-range categories, it fills the gap between India's short-range Prithvi
systems and the longer range Agni-2.It was developed after the initial development of Agni-2,
and borrows from its sister¶s design. The Agni-2 uses a two-stage motor platform, while the
Agni-1 uses only a single stage motor which is based on the first-stage motor of the Agni-2
platform. It has a shorter range but a heavier payload than the Agni-2.

The Agni-1 is 14.8 m long, 1.3 m in diameter of 1.3 m, with a launch weight of 12,000 kg. It has
an official range of 700 km with an impressive accuracy of 25 m CEP at a range of 860 km. By
reducing the payload, the Agni-1 will most likely be able to extend its range to 1,200 km, a
distance which encompasses all of Pakistan. Its maximum payload of 2000 kg can be equipped
with a 20 or 45 kT nuclear warhead or with conventional explosives. The 20 kT warhead is
larger than those used against Japan during WWII, although by modern standards this warhead is
more appropriate for use against military targets.

The Agni-1 is designed to be launched from Transporter-Erector-Launcher (TEL) vehicles, either

road- or rail-mobile. This mobility will allow India to position and fire the Agni-1 during rapidly
changing military situations. In addition, the missile has a relatively high accuracy, due to the
fact that it combines an inertial guidance system with a terminal phase radar correlation targeting
system on its warhead. Although the Agni-1 has an impressive range and accuracy for a system
of its size, the missile is designed for tactical use. It is sufficient for use against military bases
and units, although the fact that Pakistan and China deploy their nuclear force on TEL vehicles
renders the Agni-1 useless as a counterforce weapon.

Development on the Agni-1 began in 1999 and the missile was first tested in January 2002 from
a TEL vehicle at the Interim Test Range on Wheelers' Island off India's eastern coast. Reports
suggest that this first test was a failure ± though some authorities say otherwise± but subsequent
tests have been successful.Test firings were made in January 2003, July 2004, October 2007,
March 2008, and March 2010. Dr. V. K. Sarasvat, head of the Defence Research Development
Organization (DRDO), recently stated that all technical parameters set by the Army had been
"fully met.´ The Agni-1 missiles will be delivered to the 334 Missile Group at Secunderabad.
Military sources indicate the missile is currently in production at a consistent rate, and that full
scale production was approved in August 2004. Reports of its last test in March 2010 were
successful, claiming its range and accuracy were on target with its projections.

Country: India
Class: IRBM
Basing: Railcar/ Road mobile
Length: 20 m
Diameter: 1.30 m
Launch Weight: 16000 kg
Payload: Single warhead, 1000 kg
Warhead: Nuclear 150 or 200 kT, HE, chemical, submunitions
Propulsion: 2-stage solid
Range: 2000-3500 km
Status: Operational
In Service: 2001

The Agni-2 is an intermediate-range, rail/road-mobile, solid-propellant ballistic missile.

Development on the missile began in July 1997 after the original Agni missile program was
canceled in 1996. The Agni-2 borrows heavily from the original program¶s missile, though it
uses a two-stage solid-propellant motor instead of the two-stage liquid/solid-propellant motor
employed by its predecessor. The range of the missile would allow India to attack all of Pakistan
and parts of China.

In its present configuration, the missile is 20 m in length with a diameter of 1.3 m in the first and
second stages. The third stage, the payload, carries a warhead weighing up to 1,000 kg. The
Agni-2 can be fitted with 150 or 200 kT yield nuclear warheads, in addition to chemical, high-
explosive, and submunitions versions. Fully loaded, the missile has an official maximum range
of 2000 km, though if carrying a reduced payload; it can achieve a maximum range of 3,500 km.
The range of the Agni-2 is significantly greater than that needed to strike targets within all of
Pakistan, although its range falls short of primary targets within China.

The Agni-2's main strength is its relatively high accuracy, especially at close range, due to its
combination of an INS/GPS guidance module and dual-frequency radar correlation. The third
stage uses four moving control fins in order to maneuver independently during the terminal
phase, though newer models may use side thrust motors instead. It has been reported to have an
accuracy of 40 m CEP (circular error probability).
The missile is carried and launched by rail/road vehicles (TELs) which give the weapon certain
advantages and disadvantages. Preparation for launch from a TEL only takes about 15 minutes
and the launch location can be moved to meet tactical demands; however, it has less value as a
counter force weapon due to its lack of a sustainable protected launch base.

The Agni-2 underwent its first flight test in April 1999 from Wheeler's Island in the Bay of
Bengal. The test was conducted from a rail-car TEL. In 2001, the Agni-2 was tested from a road
TEL. A third test, from a rail-car TEL, was made in August 2004. By the end of 2001, less than
five Agni-2 missiles were operational, but their production rate from 2001-present is expected to
be around 10 missiles per year. The missiles are operated by the 335 Missile Group at
Secunderabad using 12 TEL vehicles.

Country: India
Class: IRBM
Basing: railcar mobile, possible road-based TEL
Length: 16.7 m
Diameter: 1.85 m
Launch Weight: 48000 kg
Payload: 2000
Warhead: nuclear fusion 200-300 kT; possible MIRV version
Propulsion: 2-stage solid propellant
Range: 3500-5000 km
Status: Development

The Agni-3 is an intermediate-range, two-stage solid propellant ballistic missile. With a range of
at least 3500-5000km, the Agni-3 can easily reach any target within mainland China ± a point
not lost on the Indian or Chinese governments. This missile would seem to be a big step in
India¶s deterrence policy towards China.

Compared to its sister missile, the Agni-2, the Agni-3 is shorter, wider, and considerably heavier.
Whereas the Agni-2 is 20m long, the newer missile is only 16.7m long. With a width of 1.85m
and a weight of 48000kg, however, the Agni-3 delivers a much heavier warhead a much greater
distance.Though early reports of the Agni-3 suggested that it would borrow its second-stage
motor from the Agni-2, the overall diameter and weight of its two engine stages do not match the
motors employed on the Agni-2. With these new motors, the Agni-3 can outdistance its
predecessor to a maximum distance of around 5000km. It may be able to reach as much as
6000km with a decreased payload and improved motors. A new chromium-based nose-coating
technology, announced in September 2008, could additionally improve the missile¶s range by
minimizing atmospheric drag.

The maximum payload of the Agni-3 is 2000kg. A nuclear fusion warhead with a yield of 200-
300 kT is expected as the primary warhead for the missile, but possible upgrades could also
implement MIRV technology. HE or submunition warheads could also be fitted to the missile.

Like its predecessors, the Agni-3 can be fired from a rail-based launcher. It is possible that a
road-based TEL has been or will be developed as well, though at this time the missile has
probably not been implemented into regular production. The missile is expected to reach
production/service sometime in 2010 or 2011.

According to India¶s defense authorities, the Agni-3 represents a number of firsts in the
country¶s missile program. Besides flying farther and carrying a heavier weight than Agni-1 or
Agni-2, this missile employs a more sophisticated guidance system that allows the Agni-3
complete autonomy once in flight. This new technology has been reported to have an incredible
accuracy of 40m CEP.

To date, the Agni-3 has been test-fired four times. Its first test, on 9 July 2006, was unsuccessful.
Its subsequent tests, on 12 April 2007, 9 May 2008, and 7 February 2010, have all been
successful and met testing criteria. The fourth test is believed to be the final pre-induction test, a
belief which suggests that the missile will soon enter regular production ± if it has not already.

The Agni-V is a three  solid fueled missile with composite motor casing in the third stage.
Two stages of this missile will be made of composite material. Agni-V will be able to carry
multiple warheads and will have countermeasures against Anti-ballistic missile systems.

The missile will utilize a canister and will be launched from it. Sixty percent of the missile will
be similar to the Agni-III missile. Advanced technologies like ring laser gyroscope and
accelerometer will be used in the new missile.

In many other respects, the Agni-5, which is scheduled to make its first flight in 2011, carries
forward the Agni-3 pedigree. With composites used extensively to reduce weight, and a third
stage added on (the Agni-3 was a two-stage missile), the Agni-5 can fly 1,500 km further than
the 3,500-km Agni-3.

explains officials that, "The Agni-5 is specially tailored for road-mobility,With the canister
having been successfully developed, all India's future land-based strategic missiles will be
canisterised as well". The range of Agni-V can be increased with reduce in the payload.

Made of maraging steel, a canister must provide a hermitically sealed atmosphere that preserves
the missile for years. During firing, the canister must absorb enormous stresses when a thrust of
300 to 400 tonnes is generated to eject the 50-tonne missile.

The Prithvi (Sanskrit: "Earth") I is mobile liquid-fueled 150 kilometer tactical missile currently
deployed with army units. It is claimed that this missile is equipped only with various
conventional warheads (which stay attached to the missile over the entire flight path). It has the
capability of maneuvering in flight so as to follow one of several different pre-programmed
trajectories. Based on the same design, a modified Prithvi, the Prithvi II, is essentially a longer-
ranged version of the Prithvi I that it has a 250-kilometer range and a lighter payload. Currently,
the Prithvi II has completed development and is now in production. When fielded, it will be
deployed with air force units for the purpose of deep target attacking maneuvers against
objectives such as air fields.

y Prithvi I ² Army Version (150 km range with a payload of 1,000 kg)

y Prithvi II ² Air Force Version (250 km range with a payload of 500 kg)
The Prithvi missile project encompassed developing 3 variants for use by the Indian Army,
Indian Air Force and the Indian Navy. The initial project framework of the Integrated Guided
Missile Development Program outlines the variants in the following manner. in October 2009
India conducted 2 simultenous user trials of 350 km extended range Prithvi II to be used for
strategic purposes.


c class was a surface-to-surface missile having a maximum warhead mounting capability
of 1,000 kg, with a range of 150 km. It has an accuracy of 10 ± 50 metres and can be launched
from Transporter erector launchers. This class of Prithvi missile was inducted into the Indian
Army in 1994.


 cc class is also a single stage liquid-fuelled missile having a maximum warhead
mounting capability of 500 kg, but with an extended range of 250 kilometres. It was developed
with the Indian Air Force being the primary user. It was first test-fired on January 27, 1996 and
the development stages were completed in 2004. The Prithvi II class of missiles are in the
process of induction by the Indian Airforce. In a recent test, the Missile was launched with an
extended range of 350 kilometres and improved Aided Inertial Navigation. The missile has the
features to deceive Anti Ballistic Missiles. After a failed test on 24 September 2010 two more
missiles were launched on December 22, 2010 which proved to be complete success.


Country: India
Class: SRBM or SLBM
Basing: Ship
Length: 8.53 m

Dhanush (Sanskrit: Bow) is a naval variant of the Prithvi missile. It can fire either the 250 km or
the 350 km range missiles. It is a customised version of the Prithvi and that the additional
customizations in missile configuration are to certify it for seaworthiness. Dhanush has to be
launched from a hydraulically stabilized launch pad. Its low range acts against it and thus it is
seen a weapons either to be used to destroy an aircraft carrier or an enemy port.

Dhanush is a short-range, ship-based, ballistic missile. Dhanush is a single stage, liquid

propelled, 500 kg warhead missile. In 2000 the first ³Dhanush´ missile was tested fromIndian
Navy¶s Sukanya Class vessel.

The ship launched Dhanush Ballistic Missile was tested from INS Subhadra of the Sukanya class
patrol craft in 2000. INS Subhadra is a vessel which was modified and the missile was launched
from the reinforced helicopter deck. The 250 km variant was tested but the tests were considered
partially successful. In 2004, the missile was again tested from the INS Subhadra and was this
time successful. Then the following year in December the missile's 350 km version was tested
from the INS Rajput and hit the land based target.

Since it is a liquid fueled missile that takes a considerable time to fuel up and launch, its role can
only be strategic. Its limited range of 350 km make it Pakistan centric. The missile has been
tested from at least two naval ships of vastly different sizes - INS Rajput, a destroyer, and INS
Shubhadra, an Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV).

DRDO is working on the K-15 SLBM, having tested it from submersible pontoon launchers,
with the aim to integrate it on the indigenous nuclear submarines being built under the secretive
ATV (advanced technology vessel) project. Though not in the range of the over 5,000-km
SLBMs in the arsenal of US, Russia and China, the 750-km range K-15 will accord India with
the desperately-needed third leg of the nuclear weapon triad.

The launch of the K-15 Sagarika missile on 26 February 2008 from a submerged pontoon in the
Bay of Bengal simulated the conditions of a submarine launch. India, for the first time on
Wednesday 12 November 2008, test-fired from a defence base in Orissa its submarine-launched
ballistic missile (SLBM) K-15 from a land-based launcher. It was test-fired successfully from the
Integrated Test Range (ITR) at The test was intended to check speed, trajectory, azimuth and
other parameters of the missile. The missile had earlier undergone a few tests in an underwater

The K-15 missile has two stages fitted into its half-meter diameter body. It can carry a payload
up to one ton and has a maximum range of 700 km. The K-15 missile has a length 10 metres,
halfmetre in diameter and weighs ten tonnes.This is taller than the 8.5-meters-long Prithvi short-
range ballistic missile but shorter than the 15-meter-long Agni-1 ballistic missile - both of which
have a diameter of 1 meter. This missile uses solid propellant and carries a conventional payload
of about 500 kg to one tone and also be fitted with a tactical nuclear warhead.


Shourya is land version of SLBM K-15 missile, it¶s configuration is similar to K-15 missile.On
12 November 2008 India conducted the successful test of its shourya. This test was from a land-
based missile silo. In the last few tests, the metal silo was being tested as well. This missile was
seven ton and of a 1,000 kilometer range, and a half ton payload.

The Shourya missile is said to be about 10 meters long. It can carry warheads weighing more
than 500 kg. Shourya missile provides the country with ³a second strike capability´ because it
was a variant of the under-water launched K-15 missile (Sagarika). missileis kept in a secured
position [silo] to carry either conventional or nuclear warheads. Reportedly, although the
Shourya needed a silo with a maximum depth of 50 meters to lift off, it could be launched from
30-meter deep silos [these numbers are too big, and don't make much sense]. It had a booster
which fired underground and another which fired in the air.

According to one report Shourya can reach targets 700 km away, carrying both conventional and
nuclear warheads. It is 10 meters long and 74 cm in diameter and weighs 6.2 tonnes. It is a two-
stage missile and both its stages are powered by solid propellants. Its flight time is 500 seconds
to 700 seconds. It can carry warheads weighing more than 500 kg.

The missile has a unique feature of simplicity of operation and maintenance. It can be easily
handled, transported and stored within the canister for longer shelf life. The missile, encased in a
canister, is mounted on a single vehicle, which has only a driver¶s cabin, and the vehicle itself is
the launch platform. This ³single vehicle solution´ reduces its signature ± it cannot be easily
detected by satellites ± and makes its deployment easy. The composite canister make the missile
much easier to store for long periods without maintenance as well as to handle and transport. It
also houses the gas generator to eject the missile from the canister before its solid propellant
motors take over to hurl it at the intended target.

The high manoeuvrability of the missile makes it less vulnerable to available anti-missile
defence systems. The missile performed a maneuver of rolling to spread the heat uniformly on its
surface. Its high manoeuvrability makes it less vulnerable to present-day anti-missile defence

The Akash (Sky) is a medium-range, theatre defence, surface-to-air missile. It operates in
conjunction with the Rajendra surveillance & engagement radar. This system will replace the
SA-6 / Straight Flush in Indian service and is also expected to be integrated with the S-300V
(SA-10 Grumble) low-to-high altitude SAM in an integrated air defence system to counter
SRBM / IRBM threats along the Pakistani and Chinese borders.

The missile is based heavily on the SA-6 and is claimed that Rajendra is similar to the 30N6
Flap-Lid B engagement radar, used by the S-300 ATBM system. The Akash¶s first flight
occurred in 1990, with development flights up to March 1997.

The Akash uses an integral ramjet rocket propulsion system to give a low-volume, low-weight
(700 kg launch weight) missile configuration, and has a low reaction time - from detection to
missile launch - of 15 seconds. This allows the missile to carry a heavier warhead (60 kg). The
solid-propellant booster accelerates the missile in 4.5 seconds to Mach 1.5, which is then
jettisoned and the ramjet motor is then ignited for 30 seconds to Mach 2.8 - 3.5 at 20g. Akash has
a range of 27 km, with an effective ceiling of 15 km. It is capable of detecting & destroying
aircraft flying at tree-top height. Development is on to increase speed, maximum altitude and
range to 60 km. A dual mode radar/infra-red seeker is also being developed as is a longer range
version of the Rajendra radar, to give earlier warning and tracking of ballistic missile targets.

In appearance, Akash is very similar to the ZRK-SD Kub (SA-6), with four long tube ramjet inlet
ducts mounted mid-body between wings. Four clipped triangular moving wings, mid-body, for
pitch/yaw control. Forward of tail, four inline clipped delta fins with ailerons for roll control.
Flight control surfaces operated by pneumatic actuators. The warhead has a lethal radius of 20
metres, weighs 60 kg and has Doppler radar proximity/contact fusing. The missile is believed to
have tail G/H-Band beacon to assist tracking by engagement radar. Guidance system is inertial
with mid-course command updates from Rajendra and semi-active radar seeker for terminal
phase (final 3-4 seconds).

Rajendra is a 3D phased-array surveillance/engagement radar developed by the Electronic

Research & Development Establishment (ERDE). Also mounted on a modified BMP-1 chassis,
like the Akash, the radar is capable of tracking 64 targets, engage 4 simultaneously and guide up
to 12 missiles. The system is reportedly similar to the 30N6 (Flap-Lid B) engagement radar. Has
air surveillance, multiple target tracking and multiple missile guidance functions via multi-
channel monopulse. Features fully digital signal processing system with adaptive moving target
indicator, coherent signal processing, FFTs, and variable pulse repetition frequency.

Mounted on a turntable at the front of a raised platform behind the driver¶s station, the multi-
element antenna arrangement folds flat when the vehicle is in motion. Radar comprises
surveillance antenna array with 4000 elements operating in the G/H-Band (4-8 GHz),
engagement antenna array with 1000 elements operating in the I/J-Band (8-20 GHz), a 16-
element IFF array and steering units. The surveillance radar range is 60 km against aircraft
targets. A longer range version is being developed. The Army intends to use the Rajendra radar
in the artillery locating role as well. An Akash battery consists of three missile launch vehicles
(triple launcher on a modified BMP-1 chassis), a Rajendra fire control radar vehicle, a long-
range surveillance radar vehicle and an armoured command vehicle. Series production of ~25
missiles per year, was expected to commence in 2000 at Bharat Dynamics Ltd. No reliable
information has been received so far, as to whether Akash missile production has begun.


  (Sanskrit: Astra¬ ¬) is an active radar homingbeyond-visual-rangeair-to-air missile

(BVRAAM) developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), India.
This is the first air-to-air missile developed by India, an advanced missile that enables fighter
pilots to lock-on and shoot down enemy aircraft from a distance of more than 80 km away.

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is developing this advanced beyond
visual range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM) to arm the Indian Air Force's Mirage 2000H, MiG-29,
Sea Harrier, Su-30MKI, MiG-21 Bison and HAL Tejas fighter aircraft. Astra resembles an
elongated MatraSuper 530. It uses an in-house developed solid fuel propellant, though DRDO is
believed to be looking at rocket/ramjet propulsion similar to that used in its Akash surface-to-air
missile project.

The maximum range of Astra is to be 80 km in head-on chase and 20 km in tail chase. The
missile could be launched from different altitudes - it can cover 110 km when launched from an
altitude of 15 km, 44 km when fired from an altitude of eight km and 21 km when the altitude is
sea-level . It will have an active homing range of 25 km. The missile has a pre-fragmented
warhead and is fitted with a proximity fuze. A radar fuse already exists for the Astra, but the
DRDO is currently working on a new laser fuse. The Mark 2 version of Astra will have a
maximum range of 150 km and tail chase range of up to 35 km.
Initially planned to arm Jaguar, MIG-29 and indigenous light combat aircraft, Tejas, DRDO
officials are now indicating that after user trials, the missile would be integrated with Indian Air
Force's front-line fighter aircraft like Sukhoi-30 MKIs and Mirage-2000s.


The Nag (Cobra) is a third generation, all weather, top-attack, fire-and-forget anti-tank guided
missile. It is one of five missile systems developed by the DRDO under the Integrated Guided
Missile Development Program (IGMDP). Design work on the missile started in 1988 and the
first tests were carried out in November 1990.
The missile uses a tandem HEAT (High Explosive Anti Tank) warhead to penetrate ERA
(Explosive Reactive Armour) or composite (Chobham type) armour that is found in the latest
tanks. The system is expected to supercede Indian production of the Soviet origin 9K113
Konkours (NATO: AT-5 Spandrel) and Euromissile Milan M2 anti-tank missiles.
Technical Characteristics
As originally conceived, the Nag would have been available with three different types of
guidance, These included a wire guided version, an infra-red version and a millimetric wave
(mmW) version. Thecumbersome nature of a wire guidance system had led to plans for this
being dropped. Currently, guidance is based on an imaging infra-red (IIR) passive seeker that
ensures a high-hit accuracy in both top- and front-attack modes.
The mmW seeker, on the other hand, is intended to operate as an optional system that can
replace the IIR passive seeker as a module. Also incorporated into the guidance system, is a CCD
camera. The missile has a weight of 42 kg and can engage targets at ranges up to 6 km. The Nag
is claimed to be first anti-tank missile which has a complete fiberglass structure.The Nag will be
produced in two main versions. The land version has been tested from a tracked vehicle known
as NAMICA (Nag Missile Carrier). The carrier is a stretched BMP-2 with an additionalpair of
road wheels and is manufactured by the Ordnance Factory, Medak. It carries four missiles in a
ready-to-fire mode on the turret and more missiles can be reloaded without exposing the crew on
the battlefield. With the IR version of the missile, targets are acquired using a thermal sight, and
are then assigned to the nose-mounted IIR seeker.
Missile guidance is initially by area correlation around the target, then by centroid tracking.
Terminal homing is by area correlation around the centroid. Nag is also configured to be used on
the Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH). Eight missiles are carried in two quadruple launchers.
Launchers mounted on either side are linked to a nose-mounted stabilized thermal sight and a
laser range-finder package.
since 1997. Flight testing of the helicopter-launched version was carried out from a specially
rigged Mi-17 in March 1998.This was followed by integration with ALH in mid-1999.The
Indian Army accepted the system for user trials in October 1999 [11]. The development of the
mmW seeker has been more problematic and it is unlikely that the seeker will enter service any
time soon. The missile also employs sensor fusion technology for flight guidance.
During recent test flights, the missile¶s fire-and-forget capability has been established using the
day version of the IIR passive seeker. In its IIR form the Nag has limited all weather capability.
This has given added impetus to develop the mmW seeker. Efforts are on to provide special
embedded on-board hunters, that can hunt for targets using µday seekers¶ and µday&night
seekers¶. A special nitramine based propellant has been developed for the Nag in order to meet
its dual requirements of energy and smokelessness.


The Trishul (Trident) is a short range, quick reaction, all weather surface-to-air missile designed
to counter a low-level attack. It has been flight tested in the sea-skimming role and also against
moving targets. It has a range of 9 km and is fitted with a 5.5 kg HE-fragmented warhead. It¶s
detection of target to missile launch is around 6 seconds. The missile can engage targets like
aircraft and helicopters, flying between 300 m/s and 500 m/s by using its radar command-to-line-
of-sight guidance. It operates in the K-band (20 - 40 GHz), which makes it difficult to jam. In the
K-band three-beam system, the missile is initially injected into a wide beam, which then hands it
over to a medium beam, which passes over to a narrow beam, guiding it to the target.
The Trishul SAM, being test-fired from a launcher at INS Dronacharya.
The Trishul has high maneuverability and is powered by a two-stage solid propellant system,
with a highly powered HTBP-type propellant similar to the ones used in the Patriot. It is
constructed ofmaraging steel to withstand the stress. Successful flight trials in a tube launched
mode using folded fins against balloons and Pilot-less Target Aircraft (PTA) targets were carried
out. One flight trial wasguided throughout the trajectory using fixed line of sight and infra-red
gathering guidance systems as per programmed flight. The army variant, Trishul Combat Vehicle
(TCV), is based on a tracked BMP-1 infantry combat vehicle and houses all equipment including
radars, command-guidance system and missiles.
David C Isby of Jane¶s Defence Weekly reported that after a spate of unsuccessful tests, it was
decided that the Trishul SAM will not be fielded as an operational system but will be continued
as atechnology demonstration program. Trishul was one of the longest-running Indian Defence
Research _ Development Organisation (DRDO) missile development programs. The program
began in 1984, and more than 40 test flights have been conducted. Defence Minister George
Fernandes told Indian Parliament that while the Trishul had demonstrated a number of complex
technologies, including an ability to defeat sea-skimming targets, it still had not been proved to
be effective. By continuing the program as a technology demonstrator, India hopes that some of
the technology from Trishul can beincorporated in other missile projects. The official cost of the
Trishul program has been some Rs.3 billion (US $62.5 million).
The Trishul missile had been intended to be a multi-service design. The Indian Air Force, which
had intended to adopt the Trishul for an airfield-defence role, recently turned against the project.
The Army has also stated that the Trishul was unlikely to meet its requirements for a replacement
for the Russian-designed OSA-AKM (SA-8b Gecko) self-propelled SAM system. The Indian
Navy had designed recent warships to include the Trishul as their armament, so the decision not
to make the system operational is likely to require selection of an alternative system
andmodification of the warships that were to use the Trishul missile. This lead to an expansion of
the Indian procurement of theIsraeli-built Barak SAM system.

The c 


 &   is an initiative to develop and deploy a multi-
layered ballistic missile defense system to protect India from ballistic missile attacks.[1][2]

Introduced in light of the ballistic missile threat from Pakistan, it is a double-tiered system
consisting of two interceptor missiles, namely the Prithvi Air Defence (PAD) missile for high
altitude interception, and the Advanced Air Defence (AAD) Missile for lower altitude
interception. The two-tiered shield should be able to intercept any incoming missile launched
5,000 kilometers away.

PAD was tested in November 2006, followed by AAD in December 2007. With the test of the PAD
missile, India became the fourth country to have successfully developed an Anti-ballistic missile system,
after United States, Russia and Israel.

The two-tiered BMD System consists of the PAD, which will intercept missiles at exo-
atmospheric altitudes of 50±80 km (31±50 mi) and the AAD missile for interception at
endoatmospheric altitudes of up to 30 km (19 mi). The deployed system would consist of many
launch vehicles, radars, Launch Control Centers (LCC) and the Mission Control Center (MCC).
All these are geographically distributed and connected by a secure communication network.

The MCC is the software intensive system of the ballistic missile defense system. It receives
information from various sources such as radars and satellites which is then processed by ten
computers which run simultaneously. The MCC is connected to all other elements of the defense
through a WAN. MCC performs target classification, target assignment and kill assessment. It
also acts as a decision support system for the commander. It can also decide the number of
interceptors required for the target for an assured kill probability. After performing all these
functions, the MCC assigns the target to the LCC of a launch battery. The LCC starts computing
the time to launch the interceptor based upon information received from a radar based on the
speed, altitude and flight path of the target. LCC prepares the missile for launch in real time and
carries out ground guidance computation.

After the interceptor is launched, it is provided target information from the radar through a
datalink. When the interceptors close onto the target missile, it activates the radar seeker to
search for the target missile and guides itself to intercept the target. Multiple PAD and AAD
interceptors can be launched against a target for high kill probability.

 & %  is an anti-ballistic missile developed to intercept incoming
ballistic missiles outside of the atmosphere (exo-atmospheric). Based on the Prithvi missile, PAD
is a two stage missile with a maximum interception altitude of 80 km (50 mi). The first stage is a
liquid fuelled motor while the second stage is solid fuelled.[15][10] It has maneuver thrusters which
can generate a lateral acceleration of more than 5 s at 50 km (31 mi) altitude. Guidance is
provided by an intertial navigation system with mid-course updates from LRTR and active radar
homing in the terminal phase.[10] PAD has capability to engage the 300 to 2,000 km (190 to
1,200 mi) class of ballistic missiles at a speed of Mach 5.

LRTR is the target acquisition and fire control radar for the PAD missile. It is an active phased
array radar having capability to track 200 targets at a range of 600 km (370 mi).

Further development led to the improvement of the interception range to the 80 to 50 km (50 to
31 mi) range. The improved missile will utilize a gimbaled directional warhead, a technology
that until now has only been used by the US and Russia. This technology allows for a smaller

Advanced Air Defence (AAD) is an anti-ballistic missile designed to intercept incoming ballistic
missiles in the endo-atmosphere at an altitude of 30 km (19 mi). AAD is single stage, solid
fuelled missile. Guidance is similar to that of PAD: it has an inertial navigation system,
midcourse updates from ground based radar and active radar homing in the terminal phase. It is
7.5 m (25 ft) tall, weighs around 1.2 t (1.2 LT; 1.3 ST) and a diameter of less than 0.5 m
(1 ft 8 in).

On 6 December 2007, AAD successfully intercepted a modified Prithvi-II missile acting as an

incoming ballistic missile enemy target. The endo-atmospheric interception was carried out at an
altitude of 15 km (9.3 mi). The interceptor and all the elements performed in a copy book fashion
validating the endo-atmospheric layer of the defense system. The launch was also shown through
a video link at a control room of DRDO at Bhawan, Delhi.

Due to two successful interceptor missile tests carried out by India, the scientists have said that
the AAD missile could be modified into a new extended range (up to 150 km (93 mi)) surface-
to-air missile that could be possibly named as µAshvin¶.[22]


Swordfish is the target acquisition and fire control radar for the BMD system. The LRTR
currently has a range of 600 km (370 mi) to 800 km (500 mi) and can spot objects as small as a
cricket ball. The DRDO plans to upgrade the capacity of Swordfish to 1,500 km by 2011.


y Two new anti ballistic missiles that can intercept IRBM/ICBMs are being developed. These high
speed missiles (AD-1 and AD-2) are being developed to intercept ballistic missiles with a range
of around 5,000 km (3,100 mi). The test trials of these two systems are expected to take place in
2011. The new missile will be similar to the THAAD missile deployed by the U.S.A. These
missiles will travel at hypersonic speeds and will require radars with scan capability of over
1,500 km (930 mi) to successfully intercept the target.
y India is also planning to develop a laser based weapon system as part of its defense to intercept
and destroy missiles soon after they are launched towards the country.

. The PDV is said to be a two solid stage hypersonic anti-ballistic missile similar in class to the
THAAD. The PDV is intended to replace the existing PAD in the PAD/AAD combination. It
will have an IIR seeker for its kill vehicle as well. The PDV will replace the PAD with a far
more capable missile and will complete the Phase 1 of the BMD system, allowing it to be
operational by 2013. Whereupon Phase 2 development will take over for protection against
missiles of the 5,000 km (3,100 mi) range class. The first test flight of the missile is expected in
2011. The PDV is designed to take out the target missile at altitudes above 150 km (93 mi).
