Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has successfully test fired AKASH-MK-1S missile from ITR, Chandipur, Odisha.

  • Akash MK1S is an upgrade of existing AKASH missile with indigenous Seeker. It is a surface to air missile which can neutralize advanced aerial targets.
  • The Akash weapon system has combination of both command guidance and active terminal seeker guidance.
  • The missile was developed as part of Integrated Guided-Missile Development Programme (IGMDP) other than Nag, Agni, Trishul, and Prithvi missiles.
    • Akash missile is a medium range Surface to Air Missile with multi-target engagement capability.
    • The supersonic Akash missile has a range of around 25 km and altitude of 18,000m. The missile uses high-energy solid propellant for the booster and ramjet-rocket propulsion for the sustainer phase.

Indigenous seeker technology

  • Indian-made seeker provides a designated trajectory to missile and hit the pre set target with pin-point accuracy.
  • Mastering it is a significant milestone in missile technology and would reduce import dependence. Earlier India used to be dependent on Russia for seeker technology.
