Successful Missile Tests of the DRDO India
DRDO successfully test fired indigenously developed Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air missiles (QRSAM) from ITR Chandipur, off the Odisha Coast on 26 February 2019. The two missiles were tested for different altitude and conditions.
The test flights successfully demonstrated the robust Control, Aerodynamics, Propulsion, Structural performance and high manoeuvring capabilities thus proving the design configuration. Radars, Electro Optical Systems, Telemetry and other stations have tracked the Missiles and monitored through the entire flights.
All the mission objectives have been met. Raksha Mantri Smt Nirmala Sitharaman congratulated DRDO on the successful test flights and said the indigenously developed state-of-theart QRSAM will significantly boost the defence capabilities of our armed forces.
In a major boost for Army, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) successfully test fired indigenously developed, low weight, fire and forget Man Portable Anti-Tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) for the second time today in the ranges of Rajasthan desert.
MPATGM is incorporated with advanced features including state-of-the-art Imaging Infrared Radar (IIR) Seeker with integrated avionics.
The first test was conducted on 13th March 2019. In both the missions, the missiles hit the designated targets precisely at different ranges. All the mission objectives have been met.
