New Delhi: India successfully test-fired Rudram 1 on Friday, the anti-radiation missile which the Indian Air Force (IAF) can launch from its Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jets. It has a launch speech of up to 2 Mach, twice the speed of sound.

The New Generation Anti-Radiation Missile, or NGARM, developed by the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), is induced on Su-30MKI fighter aircraft. It can be launched from a height ranging from 500 metres to 15 km and can hit targets emitting radiation within a range of 250 km.

It was tested at the test range of Balasore around 10:30 am, off the coast of Odisha in the Bay of Bengal.

The tactical, air-to-surface anti-radiation missile is enabled with a passive homing head that can track the source of radiation of wide range frequencies.

“It has INS-GPS navigation with Passive Homing Head for the final attack. ‘Rudram’ hit the radiation target with pinpoint accuracy. Passive Homing Head can detect, classify and engage targets over a wide band of frequencies as programmed”, reports from DRDO said.
