AKASH-NG - Next Generation Akash missile by DRDO


 

Recently DRDO(Defence Research and Development Organization) conducted the successful maiden launch of AKASH-NG(New Generation) Missile from Integrated Test Range Odisha. It’s a Surface-to-Air Missile developed for Indian Air Force. During its testing, it intercepted the target with ‘textbook precision’.

AKASH-NG is mainly designed for intercepting high maneuvering aerial targets. Apart from DRDO, a team of BDL & BEL was also present there. The AKASH-NG is equipped with a brand-new rocket motor instead of the old ramjet that is used in the legacy AKASH missile.

Further, the AKASH-NG has two a pulse solid rocket motor which when fired gives a longer range of 30 km by generating a high terminal velocity.

AKASH-NG can detect enemy fighters up to 80 km away. It can strike the target within a minute. The rocket itself has been re-engineered almost completely and has been brought down from the legacy Akash’s weight of 700 kg to a sleek 350 kg. The level of AKASH-NG indigenization is more than 96%. This is a further step towards ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’.
