DRDO test-fires interceptor missile

Bhubaneswar, Nov 22 (IANS) The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Sunday test-fired an Advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile from Abdul Kalam island in Odisha’s Balesore district on Sunday.

The flight test of the improved version of indigenously developed endo-atmosphereic interceptor missile was conducted against an electronic target from the Kalam Island at Dhamra at about 9.40 a.m., said DRDO sources.

After getting signals from tracking radars, the interceptor roared through its trajectory to destroy the incoming missile mid-air, defence sources said.

“We are analysing the data received through the radars to ascertain the impact of the missile,” a DRDO official said.

Radars were stationed at Konark and Paradip coast to monitor the behaviour of the interceptor missile, sources said.

It was the 11th development test by DRDO. Earlier, of the 10 tests eight have been successful.
