An indigenously developed interceptor missile on 11th February, 2017 successfully destroyed an incoming ballistic missile in a direct hit.
This demonstrated the capability of India’s Ballistic Missile Shield (BMD), which is under development.
With this test, India has crossed an important milestone and has entered an exclusive club of four nations with developing capabilities to secure its skies and cities against hostile threats.
The BMD is being developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) as a two layered system to tackle incoming targets at endo and exo atmospheres.
