Mission Divyastra: What Agni-5 Missile With MIRV Tech Can Do


A number of Independently Targetable Re-entry Autos know-how has been growing for a few years.

New Delhi:

India efficiently performed the primary flight take a look at of A number of Independently Targetable Re-entry Autos (MIRV) with the Agni-5 Intercontinental Ballistic Missile. The Defence Analysis and Growth Organisation (DRDO) performed a profitable take a look at of the MIRV know-how which was in improvement for a number of years, placing India on an elite listing of countries which have the aptitude.

“Happy with DRDO scientists for Mission Divyastra the primary flight take a look at of indigenously developed Agni-5 missile with A number of Independently Targetable Re-entry Car (MIRV) know-how,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced on X. A lady DRDO scientist was the mission lead and several other girls scientists performed a big function within the mission, sources mentioned.

What Is MIRV Expertise

Scientists at DRDO have been engaged on A number of Independently Targetable Re-entry Autos (MIRV) applied sciences for a few years. The know-how permits a single missile just like the Agni-5 to hold a number of warheads and independently goal places. The system developed by DRDO is provided with indigenous Avionics programs and high-accuracy sensor packages, which ensured that the re-entry autos reached the goal factors inside the desired accuracy, sources mentioned.

Agni-5 is an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) that goes into house earlier than re-entering the environment. With the MIRV know-how, a number of targets situated at totally different places may be engaged from the identical missile with a number of warheads. These warheads could possibly be nuclear or non-nuclear. These bombs can goal places which might be a number of hundred kilometres aside with the assistance of the know-how and a few MIRVed missiles may even hit targets separated by a distance of 1,500 kilometres.

The potential permits states to interact a number of targets to have a first-strike transfer for an edge throughout instances of battle. Agni-5 missile has been examined earlier, however solely with a single warhead. A missile, when it re-enters the environment, can attain as much as at the least 5 instances the velocity of sound (5 Mach) with the assistance of Kinetic Vitality because it loses altitude and the effectiveness of Anti-Missile Defence (AMD) programs is decreased with the MIRV know-how as AMD is primarily deployed to interact single targets.

The Agni-5 missile has an operational vary of at the least 5,000 km that may goal cities, the MIRV know-how places many cities inside that vary beneath the goal, offering a broader security web and several other places beneath the missile’s attain. The true vary of missiles is at all times unknown.  The MIRV warhead disables from the missile after reaching the apex, the warheads, are guided and are able to performing manoeuvres to try to evade missile defence programs. 

Forward of the take a look at, a NOTAM alert was issued final week. NOTAM, that means discover to airmen, are alerts issued to designate an space as a no-fly zone. The alert was for the Bay of Bengal space, which was seen as a transparent indication India is planning a missile take a look at which will happen anytime between March 11 and 16. This no-fly zone earmarked within the NOTAM alert spans 3,500 kilometres, effectively into the south of the Bay of Bengal.

The know-how was initially developed within the Nineteen Sixties and the US, UK, Russia, France and China can use it. For instance, a Russian MIRVed missile beneath improvement could possibly carry as much as 16 warheads, every in a separate re-entry car. There are studies that Israel can be engaged on growing the know-how.

The know-how requires a mix of enormous missiles, small warheads, correct steerage, and a fancy mechanism for releasing warheads sequentially throughout flight.

The US was the primary nation to develop MIRV know-how, deploying a MIRVed Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) in 1970 and a MIRVed Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missile (SLBM) in 1971. The Soviet Union shortly adopted swimsuit and by the top of the Seventies had developed their MIRV-enabled ICBM and SLBM know-how.
