  •  India successfully test fires supersonic Interceptor Missile from Odisha coast
01-03-2017 | Pratidin Bureau. |

India today successfully test-fired the supersonic interceptor missile from the Abdul Kalam Island off Odisha coast at 10.15 AM.
 
The weapon, dubbed as advanced air defence interceptor is part of the country’s credible ballistic missile defence programme. With this effective anti-ballistic missile system, India has become the fourth country in the world to have a ballistic missile defence programme.

Other countries which have developed a ballistic missile defence system include the US, Russia and Israel. 
 
Today’s successful test of the missile holds significance as the weapon system, which has been test fired at least eight times successfully, is likely to be inducted in the armed forces and deployed at strategic locations to protect the country’s cities and important installations from hostile attacks.
