Brahmos Grows More Lethal As Russia Integrates It with Navigation System for India

India’s BrahMos supersonic missile has turned into a ‘super rocket’ with its latest technological addition that will enhance its strategic capabilities. The Indian BrahMos supersonic cruise missile has been augmented by the installation of the advanced satellite navigation systems from Russia’s Kh-555 and Kh-101 strategic long-range cruise missiles. The GPS-GLONASS technology has been added to the current Doppler-inertial platform.

This latest integration of the navigation systems from Kh-555 will lend the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile a sub-strategic capability above its normal tactical range. The latest integration will enable BrahMos to hit targets over 300-500 kilometres from sea, land and air launchers. It is also capable of being armed with a nuclear warhead.

According to BrahMos, the installation of the advanced navigation system is specifically configured and optimized for the new air-launched version of BrahMos. This new version of BrahMos will be used by India’s Russian-built Sukhoi Su-30MKI strike fighters and this lethal combination will extend India’s long-range strike capability.

With this latest development, BrahMos missile is advancing from a tactical strike one to a strategic one. The capabilities of the BrahMos will now be more lethal coupled with its vertical steep dive at supersonic speeds. India plans to deploy over 200 advanced Sukhoi Su-30 MKI strike aircraft by 2020 for the air launched version of BrahMos.

Earlier this week, the Indian Navy successfully test-fired a highly-maneuverable version of the 290-km range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from a warship off the Goa coast. The missile, which was fired without a warhead, hit the target ship after performing intricate maneuvers. The weapon did not take a straight attack path and kept turning around before hitting the target and this capability will make it difficult for the enemy to locate the Indian warships during operations.

Hmmm...Russian systems? Prasun K Sengupta says otherwise -

To Anon@5.02PM: That’s utterly outrageous & totally false. The airborne Glonass-K receiver integrated with the RLG-INS & related small-diameter airborne data-link for the air-launched BrahMos-1 were developed completely in-house by ASL. In fact, not just the BrahMos-1, but also the Shaurya & Prahaar are likely to have these elements as well. They have nothing to do at all with the Kh-55.
TRISHUL

I dont know about the ground-launched versions though...

What does the term ‘super rocket’ means here? can any expert shade some light on this?

does that change the way the missile advances towards target?

Read the article first. BTW Indian Regional Navigation System will be installed in few years. As far as what will we do without Russia, should I ask about your "allies" China and US.

our drdo has develoved inertial navigation system,that we use extensively in our agni and prithvi missile series...but russia is incorporating its glonass system which would make the missile more accurate and precise...pity u 4ur lack of knowledge :lol:

what would you guys do without Russia, shoot blind rockets
Replace GLONASS navigation system with traditional GPS. And Indian IRNSS should be ready within a year or two. And FYI, India does have operating codes for GLONASS, so we don't have to seek their permission to fire any missile.

Peace \m/

Inertial navigation only works for ballistic missile without much maneuverability, more like rockets with a predictable trajectory.
