India’s military over the next 25 years will focus on the development of new missile weapons
Indian-made” Agni “-3 missile has successfully conducted three tests and has been put into mass production
BEIJING, March 12 (Reuters): According to the Russian military Equality Network report, India’s Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has announced the main 席萨拉斯瓦特 organization in the next 25 years will focus on the implementation of the weapons development program.
introduced Saraswat said the development of long-range ballistic missiles, anti-missile defense systems, cruise missiles and the development of new computer network security systems, DRDO is working in the next 25 years the focus.
According to reports, the development of new weapons, missile weapons and India will be top priority in development work. India will continue stepping up development of strategic and tactical ballistic missiles. Among them, the “Agni” -3 missile has successfully conducted three tests and has been put into mass production. And a range of 5,000 kilometers, “Agni” missile-5 has also been completed design, it is currently being developed with the subsystem. As planned, the missile will be test-fired this year for the first time. In addition, India will start manufacturing a range of 2,000 km of “Agni” -2 ballistic missile.
in tactical missiles, according to DRDO Chair introduced the Indian summer this year, “Viper” anti-tank missiles of the second round of tests. With this equipped with an infrared seeker of the birth of anti-tank weapons, making India the world’s few countries capable of producing such a missile. Meanwhile, DRDO has done a “Akash” missile defense development work. In the “hollow” missiles, India will continue to “Astra” BVR missile test. In the future, the missile will be used to equip a light India-made LCA fighters and Su-30MKI fighters.
addition, DRDO is still in Israel, “Barak” anti-aircraft missiles for the Navy based on the development of more advanced anti-missile system (range about 70 km). It is reported that, DRDO for the Indian Air Force has also developed a similar system.
order to enhance the anti-missile defense capability, DRDO will develop to the future missile defense system against missiles and enemy satellites to deal with new weapons. Chairman of the organization, said that India is currently being developed to anti-satellite weapon, but it is not the focus of research. Satellite capacity in strengthening the fight against the enemy at the same time, DRDO will develop rapidly launch and deployment of satellite systems. It is reported that India will be developed in a short time to launch a low orbit micro-satellites, and act as a launch vehicle will likely be improved by a ballistic missile from the launch vehicle.
The DRDO’s other priority areas for development, introduction Saraswat said, it will be computer security. He pointed out that maintenance of computer network security has become the Indian military a new mission. To this end, DRDO will begin developing a network to protect military and civilian networks against enemy attacks and invasion system of procedures. Taking into account the current use of computer chips and India needs to import more, DRDO will develop the ability to be hidden in the imports of the elimination of the virus chip technology to protect sensitive electronic equipment.
addition, in order to promote the private sector more actively involved in the defense industry in the past, DRDO will continue to promote the next 25 years with various types, all sizes private cooperation. (Spring)
