    Brahmos achieves Mach 6.5 speed during test - India News - IBNLive

    Chennai: The latest version of Indo-Russian Brahmos cruise missile has achieved a speed of Mach 6.5 during experiments at Hyderabad and the target is to achieve Mach 7, a top DRDO official said in Chennai on Monday.
    "Experiments are being done in Hyderabad. We have completed tests up to Mach 6.5," BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director A Sivathanu Pillai said in Chennai.
    The target is to achieve Mach 7, he said.

    BrahMos is a cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land.
    Inaugurating an International Research Centre developed by Sathyabama University and Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research in Chennai, Pillai said nanotechnology is the buzzword in the future and several countries were investing into it.
    "Over 70 billion US dollars are being spent in this field. Once, this technology is commercialised, it will generate over $ 3 trillion per year," the DRDO scientist said.
    Nanotechnology will be a boon for the health sector especially to tackle diseases like Alzheimer's.
    The government has formed a nanotechnology mission and a centre in Bangalore is being upgraded for this, Pillai said.

    I think Mr Pillai was talking about Nano tech.. which has a lot of potential but is also untested and a risky investment.

    Hold your horses experts...It might be a reporting error which is common from the noob Indian media journalists.

    Its better not to talk about brahmos lest you want to be reminded about LCA, Arjun, India's poverty, Maoist, Caste system, lack of infrastructure etc etc.
