DRDO successfully tests next-gen AKASH missile

The missile was tested against a high-speed unmanned aerial target flying at a very low altitude. The missile successfully intercepted the target and destroyed it during the flight test.

The weapon system, comprising the missile with an indigenously developed radio frequency seeker, launcher, multi-function radar, and command, control & communication system, performed without any glitches. The success of the AKASH-NG system was confirmed through data collected by numerous radars, telemetry, and electro-optical tracking systems deployed at the ITR.

Senior officials from DRDO, Indian Air Force (IAF), Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL), and Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) were present to witness the test. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh praised the collaborative effort of DRDO, IAF, PSUs, and the industry, emphasizing the significant enhancement of the country's air defense capabilities.
