How India is gearing up for its own hypersonic ballistic missile
India has long been interested in developing hypersonic ballistic missiles, and it appears that the country is finally making progress on this front. Last year, India successfully tested a hypersonic technology demonstrator, and it is now working on an operational missile that could be ready for deployment within the next few years.
While India’s hypersonic program is still in its early stages, the country is making significant progress. The successful test of a hypersonic technology demonstrator last year was a major milestone, and India is now working on an operational missile that could be ready for deployment within the next few years.
The development of hypersonic ballistic missiles is a complex undertaking, but India has the scientific and technological capabilities.
India’s Ballistic Missile Programme
India’s Ballistic Missile Programme is one of the most robust and advanced in the world. With a wide range of capabilities, India’s ballistic missiles are able to threaten a wide variety of targets across the globe. India’s ballistic missile arsenal includes both nuclear and conventional warheads, making it a truly formidable force.
India’s ballistic missile programme began in the early 1980s, and has since been expanded and improved upon. India now has a wide range of ballistic missiles, including short, medium, and long-range missiles. India’s ballistic missile programme is overseen by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), which is responsible for the design, development, and testing of all Indian missiles.
The DRDO has been highly successful
What is the DRDO?
The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is an Indian governmental organisation responsible for the development of technology for use by the military. It was established in 1958 by the merger of the Technical Development Establishment and the Directorate of Technical Development and Production with the Defence Science Organisation. The organisation is under the administrative control of the Ministry of Defence, Government of India.
The primary objective of DRDO is to develop indigenous technology for use by the armed forces. The organisation also aims to transfer the developed technology to Indian industry for commercialisation. DRDO has a network of 52 laboratories, which are engaged in developing defence technologies covering various fields, such as aeronautics, armaments, electronics, land combat engineering, materials science, missiles etc.
