India on Saturday successfully tested the new generation nuclear-capable ballistic missile ‘Agni P’ from Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Island off the Odisha coast, the Defence Research and Development Organisation said.
The ‘Agni P’ is a two-stage canisters solid-propellant ballistic missile with dual redundant navigation and guidance system, it said.
“Various telemetry, radar, electro-optical stations and downrange ships positioned along the eastern coast tracked and monitored the missile trajectory and parameters. The missile followed textbook trajectory meeting all mission objectives with a high level of accuracy,” the DRDO said in a statement.
This second flight test has proven the reliable performance of all the advanced technologies integrated into the system, it added.
