CONTENT: The article discusses
(a) Why it is news?
(b)Context, background (India-Pakistan war,Kargil war, India’s no first use policy)
(c) Technical aspects of BMD (d)PAD (Prithvi Air Defence), AAD, MCC (Mission Control Centre), LCC (launch control centre), FCR (fire control radar)
(e) Effectiveness of BMD (Ballistic Missile Defence), and
(f) Importance of BMD

CONTEXT: India recently successfully tasted an advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile (Abdul Kalam island, Odhisa coast). This will give India’s defence the power to destroy enemy ballistics missiles at low altitude. It was the third successful test; it is being made as part of the Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD). It is indigenously designed and built. It destroyed the incoming missile at an altitude of 15 km (endo-atmospheric means lower altitudes; 15-30 km is the capability range).

India’s ballistic missile defence is two-pronged: the Prithvi Defence Vehicle (PDV) for exo-atmospheric ranges and the Advanced Area Defence (AAD) missile for endo-atmosphere or lower altitudes, both targetted at mid-course interception. Israel, Russia and the USA are the only three other countries with indigenous ballistic missile defence system. The topic is important for general studies papers in civil services exams (UPSC, PSCs) and other exams where General Knowledge (GK) is tasted; it will also be useful for those wanting to update themselves on India’s defence preparedness (Indo-Pak, Indo-China relations, defence scenario etc.).
