Integrated Guided Missiles Development Program

The IGMDP was started by ministry of Defence in 1980s and closed on 7th May, 2008 for the development of a comprehensive range of missiles including the intermediate range Agni Missile ( surface to surface ), short range missiles such as Prithvi ( surface to surface ), Akash ( surface to air ), Trishul ( surface to air ) and Nag missiles ( anti – tank ).

Agni : The Agni missile belongs to the family of medium to intercontinental range ballistic missiles. Agni – I ( 500 – 700 km range ); Agni – H ( 2000 – 3000 km range ); Agni – III ( 3000 – 5500 km range ); Agni – IV ( was side stepped ); Agni – V ( 5000 – 6000 km range ).General Studies Question Bank CD

Agni – I was test – fired at the Test Range in Chandipur in 1989 and it is capable of carrying 1000 kg conventional payload. Agni – II with a range of 2000 – 2500 km range can reach most of the western parts, central and Southern China.

Beijing and Shanghai fall within this range. Agni – III was test fired on 9th July, 2006 from Wheeler island off Orissa coast. Again test fired on 12th April, 2007 and 7th May, 2008 the missile’s Circular Error Probable ( CEP ) lies within 40 metres range.

Prithvi : The Prithvi missile project encompasses 3 variants for use by Army, Navy and Airforce.

Prithvi – I ( SS – 150 ) Army Version ( 150 km range with a payload of 1000 kg ); Prithvi – II ( SS – 250 ) Air Force Version ( 250 km range with a payload of 500 kg ); Prithvi – III ( SS – 350 ) Naval Version ( 350 km range with a payload of 500 kg ); Dhanush – Naval Version of Prithvi which can be launched from ships; Prithvi – I was inducted into Army in 1994.

Prithvi – II was test fired on 27th January, 1994 and developmental stages were completed in 2004. Prithvi – III class ( Dhanush ) was test fired in 2000 from INS Subhadra. It was a partial success. It was again test fired on 13th December, 2009 from INS Subhadra anchored 35 km off Chandipur, Orissa.

Akash : It can be fired from both tracked and wheeled platforms. It can target an aircraft 30 km away at an altitude of 18000 metres and can carry a nuclear warhead of 60 kg.

The system provides air defence missile coverage of 2000 kms. The first test flight was conducted in 1990 with developmental flights upto 1997. It was one of the costliest projects ever undertaken by India. The estimated cost was 120 million dollars. In December 2007, Airforce completed user trials of this missile. In February 2010, Indian Airforce accepted the Akash missile system.

Trishul : It has a range of 9 kms and is designed to counter a low level attack with a very quick reaction time. Trishul can be used as an anti – sea skimmer missile. It is an all weather surface to air missile. Until 1999, it has undergone many developmental stages, when it was inducted into service.

General Studies Question Bank CD
