March Scrub Behind It, DRDO Successfully Tests Lower Atmosphere Missile Interceptor

DRDO Statement (edited): India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) today successfully conducted its fourth consecutive AAD interceptor missile test in the endo-atmospheric regime at 15-km altitude off the Integrated Test Range, Chandipur, Orissa. The single stage interceptor missile fitted with a directional warhead and other advanced systems neutralized the target.
The target ballistic 'enemy' missile was launched from Launch Complex–III, ITR Chandipur. The interceptor missile fitted with a directional warhead was launched from Wheeler Island and destroyed the target missile breaking it into fragments. This was tracked by various radars and sensors. All weapon system elements including command and control, communication and radar performed satisfactorily.
