India successfully conducted the maiden test of New Generation Anti-Radiation Missile (NGARM) from the Sukhoi-30 MKI, the main fighter jet of the Indian Air Force off Odisha coast last week.
The indigenously developed air-to-surface missile is capable of destroying the enemy radars, tracking system and communication facilities.
The NGARM has a strike range of over 100 kms.
“The missile test-fired on January 18 performed as expected. Its seeker, structural integrity, navigation and control system were validated along with the aerodynamic capabilities,” the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) scientist associated with the mission was quoted by The New Indian Express on Thursday.
This missile is first of its kind in India and can be launched from a range of altitudes. It can pick up signals or radiations emitted by the radars or other tracking devices from a certain and then it can destroy them.
After completion of developmental trials, it will be integrated with front-line fighter aircraft Sukhoi and multi-role light combat aircraft Tejas.
