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.

Details 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.

Details 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, highexplosive, 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.

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

Its subsequent tests. A nuclear fusion warhead with a yield of 200300 kT is expected as the primary warhead for the missile. on 9 July 2006. To date. The missile is expected to reach production/service sometime in 2010 or 2011. The fourth test is believed to be the final pre-induction test. The maximum payload of the Agni-3 is 2000kg. this missile employs a more sophisticated guidance system that allows the Agni-3 complete autonomy once in flight.

on the other hand. is intended to operate as an optional system that can replace the IIR passive seeker as a module. The Nag is claimed to be first anti-tank missile which has a complete fiberglass structure. It is one of five missile systems developed by the DRDO under the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program (IGMDP). and are then assigned to the nose-mounted IIR seeker. DRDO officials are now indicating that after user trials. 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. The missile has a weight of 42 kg and can engage targets at ranges up to 6 km. Thecumbersome nature of a wire guidance system had led to plans for this being dropped. Nag is also configured to be used on the Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH). The mmW seeker. 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. Currently. Design work on the missile started in 1988 and the first tests were carried out in November 1990. targets are acquired using a thermal sight.and front-attack modes.

With the IR version of the missile. then by centroid tracking. Missile guidance is initially by area correlation around the target. the Nag would have been available with three different types of guidance. the missile would be integrated with Indian Air Force's front-line fighter aircraft like Sukhoi-30 MKIs and Mirage-2000s. .The Nag will be produced in two main versions.

The Army has also stated that the Trishul was unlikely to meet its requirements for a replacement . Trishul was one of the longest-running Indian Defence Research _ Development Organisation (DRDO) missile development programs. The development of the mmW seeker has been more problematic and it is unlikely that the seeker will enter service any time soon. which then hands it over to a medium beam. Defence Minister George Fernandes told Indian Parliament that while the Trishul had demonstrated a number of complex technologies. and more than 40 test flights have been conducted. quick reaction. being test-fired from a launcher at INS Dronacharya.

India hopes that some of the technology from Trishul can beincorporated in other missile projects. In its IIR form the Nag has limited all weather capability. One flight trial wasguided throughout the trajectory using fixed line of sight and infra-red gathering guidance systems as per programmed flight. guiding it to the target. all weather surface-to-air missile designed to counter a low-level attack. Trishul SAM The Trishul (Trident) is a short range. The missile also employs sensor fusion technology for flight guidance. Flight testing of the helicopter-launched version was carried out from a specially rigged Mi-17 in March 1998.Launchers mounted on either side are linked to a nose-mounted stabilized thermal sight and a laser range-finder package.This was followed by integration with ALH in mid-1999.5 kg HE-fragmented warhead. flying between 300 m/s and 500 m/s by using its radar command-to-lineof-sight guidance. it was decided that the Trishul SAM will not be fielded as an operational system but will be continued as atechnology demonstration program.The Indian Army accepted the system for user trials in October 1999 [11]. The official cost of the Trishul program has been some Rs.5 million). A special nitramine based propellant has been developed for the Nag in order to meet its dual requirements of energy and smokelessness. Efforts are on to provide special embedded on-board hunters. which makes it difficult to jam. Successful flight trials in a tube launched mode using folded fins against balloons and Pilot-less Target Aircraft (PTA) targets were carried out. which passes over to a narrow beam. with a highly powered HTBP-type propellant similar to the ones used in the Patriot. recently turned against the project. which had intended to adopt the Trishul for an airfield-defence role. The program began in 1984. By continuing the program as a technology demonstrator. since 1997. The Trishul SAM. that can hunt for targets using µday seekers¶ and µday&night seekers¶. It operates in the K-band (20 . David C Isby of Jane¶s Defence Weekly reported that after a spate of unsuccessful tests. During recent test flights. The Trishul has high maneuverability and is powered by a two-stage solid propellant system. In the K-band three-beam system. command-guidance system and missiles. the missile¶s fire-and-forget capability has been established using the day version of the IIR passive seeker. Trishul Combat Vehicle (TCV). is based on a tracked BMP-1 infantry combat vehicle and houses all equipment including radars. It has a range of 9 km and is fitted with a 5. it still had not been proved to be effective. It has been flight tested in the sea-skimming role and also against moving targets. It is constructed ofmaraging steel to withstand the stress. This has given added impetus to develop the mmW seeker. It¶s detection of target to missile launch is around 6 seconds. The missile can engage targets like aircraft and helicopters. the missile is initially injected into a wide beam.

LCC prepares the missile for launch in real time and carries out ground guidance computation. 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. 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. namely the Prithvi Air Defence (PAD) missile for high altitude interception. After performing all these functions. PAD was tested in November 2006. Program AD The Indian Ballistic Missile Defense Program is an initiative to develop and deploy a multilayered ballistic missile defense system to protect India from ballistic missile attacks. followed by AAD in December 2007. radars. It can also decide the number of interceptors required for the target for an assured kill probability. MCC performs target classification. after United States. target assignment and kill assessment. It receives information from various sources such as radars and satellites which is then processed by ten computers which run simultaneously. 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. Russia and Israel. India became the fourth country to have successfully developed an Anti-ballistic missile system. All these are geographically distributed and connected by a secure communication network. altitude and flight path of the target. and the Advanced Air Defence (AAD) Missile for lower altitude interception.for the Russian-designed OSA-AKM (SA-8b Gecko) self-propelled SAM system. After the interceptor is launched. The deployed system would consist of many launch vehicles. it is a double-tiered system consisting of two interceptor missiles. The MCC is connected to all other elements of the defense through a WAN. When the interceptors close onto the target missile. Phase I . which will intercept missiles at exoatmospheric altitudes of 50±80 km (31±50 mi) and the AAD missile for interception at endoatmospheric altitudes of up to 30 km (19 mi). it is provided target information from the radar through a datalink. The Indian Navy had designed recent warships to include the Trishul as their armament. The two-tiered shield should be able to intercept any incoming missile launched 5.[1][2] Introduced in light of the ballistic missile threat from Pakistan. It also acts as a decision support system for the commander. This lead to an expansion of the Indian procurement of theIsraeli-built Barak SAM system. Launch Control Centers (LCC) and the Mission Control Center (MCC). The MCC is the software intensive system of the ballistic missile defense system.000 kilometers away. With the test of the PAD missile. The two-tiered BMD System consists of the PAD.

allowing it to be operational by 2013. It will have an IIR seeker for its kill vehicle as well. the scientists have said that the AAD missile could be modified into a new extended range (up to 150 km (93 mi)) surfaceto-air missile that could be possibly named as µAshvin¶. These high speed missiles (AD-1 and AD-2) are being developed to intercept ballistic missiles with a range of around 5.S. The PDV will replace the PAD with a far more capable missile and will complete the Phase 1 of the BMD system. The DRDO plans to upgrade the capacity of Swordfish to 1. The PDV is said to be a two solid stage hypersonic anti-ballistic missile similar in class to the THAAD. 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. These missiles will travel at hypersonic speeds and will require radars with scan capability of over 1. The new missile will be similar to the THAAD missile deployed by the U.000 km (3.000 km (3.
