The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Monday tested a long-range Supersonic Missile Assisted Torpedo (SMART). The test was done from Wheeler Island in Odisha.
The system is a next-generation missile-based standoff torpedo delivery system. During the test, the full-range capability of the missile was successfully demonstrated.
The system has been designed to enhance anti-submarine warfare capability far beyond the conventional range of the torpedo.
The missile is equipped with a state-of-the-art millimetre wave (MMW) seeker which provides high precision strike capability from a safe distance.
According to officials, the system is being developed to be used by the Indian Navy.
