India successfully tested Supersonic Missile Assisted Torpedo (SMART)

Off the coast of Balasore in Odisha, India successfully test-fired a long-range Supersonic Missile Assisted Torpedo (SMART). The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is developing the weapon system for the Indian Navy. The technique was created to improve anti-submarine warfare capability far beyond the torpedo's typical range.

About The Defence Research and Development Organisation(DRDO)

The Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) was formed in 1958 by combining the Defence Science Organisation and several of the technological development organisations. In 1980, a separate Department of Defence Research and Development was established to oversee DRDO and its 50 laboratories and sites. The Defence Research Development Organisation was frequently treated as a seller, with the Army Headquarters or the Air Headquarters as consumers. Because the Army and the Air Force did not have any responsibility for design or construction, they tended to treat the designer or Indian industry on level with their counterparts in the global market. They sought a MiG-21 from DRDO if they couldn't get one from the foreign market.

About system

The standoff torpedo delivery system is a next-generation missile-based technology. The missile's whole range capability was successfully demonstrated during the test. The technology was created to improve anti-submarine warfare capability well beyond the torpedo's traditional range. The electro-optic telemetry system, multiple range radars, downrange sensors, and downrange ships all kept track of the entire course. A torpedo, a parachute delivery system, and release mechanisms were all carried on the missile.
