India tests missile interceptor in Orissa

Balasore (Orissa): India successfully test-fired indigenously developed interceptor missile on Sunday from Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Wheeler Island off Orissa coast.

This missile is capable of destroying any incoming hostile ballistic missile.

The 'hostile' target ballistic missile, a modified surface-to-surface 'Prithvi', was first lifted off from a mobile launcher around 0933 hours from the launch complex-3 of ITR at Chandipur-on-Sea.

Within four minutes, the interceptor, Advanced Air Defence (AAD) missile positioned at Wheeler Island, about 70 km across sea from Chandipur received signals from long ranging tracking radars installed along the coastlines, and then travelled through the sky at a speed of 4.
