The mis­sile can go up to a range of 25 km with a war­head of 60 kg. The test-fire was suc­cess­ful, said a Defence Research Devel­op­ment Organ­i­sa­tion (DRDO) offi­cial asso­ci­at­ed with the Akash mis­sile project.

Akash was test ‑fired from a mobile launch­er from launch com­plex-III of the ITR at 11:08 am on Thurs­day.

The mis­sile is an anti-air­craft defence sys­tem. It can neu­tralise aer­i­al tar­gets such as unmanned aer­i­al vehi­cles (UAVs), fight­er jets, cruise mis­siles and air-to-sur­face mis­siles simul­ta­ne­ous­ly with ‘Rajen­dra’ radar devel­oped by the Elec­tron­ics and Radar Devel­op­ment Estab­lish­ment (LRDE), a DRDO lab­o­ra­to­ry in Ban­ga­lore.

Akash was devel­oped dur­ing 1990s under Inte­grat­ed Guid­ed Mis­sile Devel­op­ment Pro­gramme (IGMDP). The air force ver­sion of Akash has been devel­oped by the DRDO.
