Drdo ballistic missile defence system, india

  1. 1. DRDO Ballistic Missile Defence System, India
  3. 3. INDRODUCTION •The Indian Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is developing a two-tier Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) system that provides a multi-layered shield against ballistic missile attacks.
  4. 4. DEVELOPMENT • India began the development of the ballistic missile defence system in 1998. • The development was planned in two stages. • The first phase was challenging due to the complex technologies and indigenous mission systems employed in the mission. • After eight years of development, the first missile test was conducted in November 2006. • The Prithvi-II missile was successfully intercepted by the PAD in the endo-atmosphere at an altitude of 48km.
  5. 5. INTERCEPTOR • PAD is a two stage missile based on the Prithvi missile. • Also known as Pradyumna, PAD has a maximum interception altitude of 80km. • The first stage is liquid fuelled and the second stage is solid fuelled. • The missile is equipped with manoeuvre thrusters for lateral acceleration. • It can engage the ballistic missiles (300km-2,000km range) at a speed of Mach 5.
  6. 6. SWORDFISH RADAR • Swordfish is a long-range tracking radar developed for the BMD system. • It was derived from the Israeli Green Pine long range radar. • A test conducted in March 2009 validated the long-range capabilities of the radar. • Swordfish guides the exo-atmospheric interceptor missile PAD to engage aerial targets at altitudes over 80km. • The radar can detect very small targets within the range of 600km-800km. • DRDO plans to upgrade the range of Swordfish to 1,500 km by 2011.
  7. 7. CONTRACTORS • DRDO units involved in the project are Defence Research and Development Laboratory , Hyderabad (mission control software); The Research Centre, Imarat, Hyderabad (navigation and electromechanical actuation systems); Advanced System Laboratory (motors, jet vanes and structures) and High Energy Materials Research Laboratory, Pune (propellants). • Other contractors include L&T, Bharat Electronics, Bharat Dynamics, Astra Microwave, Vem Technologies and KelTech.
