India tests ballistic missile interceptor

India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has reported another successful Ballistic Missile Defence test.

India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has successfully completed a further test of the Advanced Area Defence (AAD) ballistic missile interceptor from Abdul Kalam Island, Odisha.

The endo-atmospheric missile, designed to intercept incoming targets at an altitude of 15 to 25km, was launched against multiple simulated targets of 1,500km-class ballistic missile.

One of the simultaneously incoming targets was selected in real time, tracked by the weapon system radars and intercepted “with a high degree of accuracy”.

According to DRDO, all the mission objectives were successfully met.

The AAD covers the lower tier of India’s two-layer Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) system. The upper, exo-atmospheric tier is covered by the Prithvi Air Defence missile.
