India’s government-run Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has successfully test-fired its locally designed Advanced Area Defence (AAD) missile interceptor system off the country’s east coast against a specific target concealed among multiple decoys.


According to the government’s Press Information Bureau (PIB), the endo-atmospheric AAD interceptor, which is stated to be capable of intercepting targets at altitudes between 15 and 25 km, was launched from Abdul Kalam Island in the Bay of Bengal on 2 August against “multiple simulated targets of 1,500 km-class [medium-range] ballistic missiles”.

The AAD’s radar tracked and locked onto one target – selected on a real-time basis – and “intercepted it with a high degree of accuracy”, the PIB stated, adding that all mission objectives were met.
