Air Defence Fire Control Radar (ADFCR) ‘Atulya’:

Air Defence Fire Control Radar (ADFCR) in conjunction with Anti- Aircraft Guns forms a Ground Based Air Defence System. The radar has been developed as an indigenous solution against DAC approval for large quantities required for Indian Army.  In February 2020, Phase-I of User Assisted Technical Trials (UATT) i.e. high-altitude low temperature tests were completed.

Advanced LightWeight Torpedo (ALWT):

Advanced Lightweight Torpedo (ALWT) is an anti-submarine torpedo launched from a ship, helicopter or from a fixed wing aircraft. During the month of March 2020, two nos of dynamic trials were conducted. ALWT has consistently achieved good homing range including 3 steer away with increased target range & reduced target strength.


Successful Flight Test of ABHYAS: Successful flight test of ABHYAS – High-speed Expendable Aerial Target (HEAT) was conducted on 22nd SEP 2020 by DRDO from Balasore in Odisha.

AHSP Transfer of Pinaka Weapon System from DRDO to DGQA:

BrahMos as a ‘prime strike weapon’ will ensure the warship’s invincibility by engaging naval surface targets at long ranges. On 1st Dec 2020, one more BrahMos Missile in Anti-Ship mode was successfully test fired.

Flight Testing of Laser Guided ATGM:

The indigenously developed Laser Guided Anti Tank Guided Missile was successfully test fired on 1st Oct 2020 defeating a target located at longer range. The test was conducted from MBT Arjun at KK ranges Ahmednagar. Laser guided ATGMs lock and track the targets with help of laser designation.
