    The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) today successfully test fired indigenously developed an Advanced Area Defence (AAD) interceptor missile from Abdul Kalam Island off Odisha coast.


    The interceptor missiles was test fired to establish a ballistic missile shield for intercepting and destroying incoming missiles, from the Integrated Test Range at Chandipur

    ITR sources said the interceptor missile was test fired from the defence testing facility at the Abdul Kalam island in the Bay of Bengal, and it hit the incoming surface-to-surface target missile, a modified indigenously built ‘Prithvi II, posing as an enemy missile which lifted off from a mobile launcher from the ITR at Chandipur-on-sea few minutes before the interceptor missile was test fired .
