Topic Description:

Buoyed up by the strength of successful missile test in last 60 days, DRDO chief G Satheesh Reddy has said India has achieved self-reliance in the field of missile systems and can produce whatever is required by the armed forces within the country itself. The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has conducted around 10 successful missile tests over the last nine weeks including that of the Shaurya hypersonic missile, BrahMos extended-range missile, Prithvi nuclear-capable ballistic missile, Hypersonic missile technology development vehicles, Rudram I anti-radiation missile and the Supersonic Missile Assisted Release Torpedo weapon system. Meanwhile, on Monday, the Defence Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated a model of an anti-satellite missile at the DRDO Bhawan. The anti-satellite missile system is seen as a symbol of national technological advancement. India had successfully tested its anti-satellite missile on March 27 last year shooting down a live satellite in space under 'Mission Shakti'. India is the fourth country to have used such a weapon after the US, Russia and China.
