DRDO Tests Solid Fuel Ducted Ramjet Technology
DRDO's test of solid fuel ducted ramjet technology

India's Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) carried out flight demonstration based on Solid Fuel Ducted Ramjet (SFDR) technology from Integrated Test Range Chandipur off the coast of Odisha on Friday.

All the subsystems including the booster motor and nozzle-less motor performed as expected. Successful demonstration of Solid Fuel based Ducted Ramjet technology has provided DRDO with a technological advantage which will enable DRDO to develop long range air to air missiles, the company said in a statement.

During the test, air launch scenario was simulated using a booster motor. Subsequently, the nozzle-less booster accelerated it to the required Mach number for Ramjet operation.

The performance of the missile was monitored using the data captured by Electro Optical, Radar and Telemetry instruments deployed by ITR and confirmed successful demonstration of the mission objectives.
