India successfully tested an indigenously built naval anti-ship missile in flight

According to DRDO sources, the Indian Navy and the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) successfully conducted the maiden flight test of an indigenously developed Naval anti-ship missile launched from a Naval helicopter from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) in Chandipur off the coast of Odisha on Wednesday. The mission accomplished all of its goals. According to them, it is the Indian Navy’s first indigenous air-launched anti-ship missile system.

They claimed that the missile followed the required sea skimming trajectory and hit the target with excellent precision, confirming the control, guidance, and mission algorithms. Sensors positioned across the test range and at the impact point tracked the missile trajectory and captured all events, according to the DRDO, which stated that all sub-systems performed well. Many new technology were used in the missile, including an indigenously produced launcher for the helicopter.

The missile guiding system has a cutting-edge navigation system as well as integrated avionics. Senior officers from the DRDO and the Indian Navy were present for the flight test. Rajnath Singh, the Defence Minister, commended the DRDO, Indian Navy, and allied organisations on the successful first developmental flight test. According to him, India has a high level of capabilities in indigenous missile design and development.

Dr. G Satheesh Reddy, Secretary of Defense R&D and Chairman of DRDO, praised the project team’s work. He praised the Indian Navy and the Naval Flight Test Squadron for their contributions to the project, stating that the system will improve the Indian Navy’s offensive capabilities.
