India’s state run defense firm Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and Indian Air Force (IAF) jointly tested an indigenously developed Long-Range Bomb (LRB) from an aerial platform on October 29, 2021.

The LRB, after release from the IAF fighter aircraft, guided to a land-based target at a long range with accuracy within specified limits. The flight of the bomb and the performance was monitored by a number of range sensors including Electro Optical Tracking System (EOTS), Telemetry and radar deployed by the Integrated Test Range, Chandipur in Odisha.

The LRB has been designed and developed by Research Centre Imarat (RCI), a DRDO laboratory located in the city of Hyderabad in coordination with other DRDO laboratories.
