INDIA’S DRDO SUCCESSFULLY TESTS SDFR TECHNOLOGY

Highlights
• This demonstration was carried out from Integrated Test Range (ITR) Chandipur off the coast of Odisha
• The DRDO said in the statement that a “Successful demonstration of SFDR technology has provided DRDO with a technological advantage, which will enable it to develop long range air-to-air missiles.”

India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Friday successfully carried out a flight demonstration which is based on Solid Fuel Ducted Ramjet (SFDR) technology. This demonstration was carried out from Integrated Test Range (ITR) Chandipur off the coast of Odisha.
The DRDO said in the statement that a “Successful demonstration of SFDR technology has provided DRDO with a technological advantage, which will enable it to develop long range air-to-air missiles.”
It further said that “At present, such technology is available only with a handful of countries in the world.”
DRDO also stated that all the subsystems, including the booster motor and nozzle-less motor, performed as per expectations at the time of the test, and many new technologies were proven, including SFDR technology.
The statement also explained that, at the time of the test, air launch scenario was simulated with the help of a booster motor and subsequently, the nozzle-less booster accelerated it to the required Mach number for Ramjet operation.
The performance of the missile was monitored by using the data which was captured by electro optical, radar and telemetry instruments deployed by ITR and confirmed successful demonstration of the mission objectives.
