Chennai: Hyper-sonic missiles systems and new plasma-based propulsion were highlighted as key defence research areas by A Sivathanu Pillai, founder BrahMos Aerospace, professor at ISRO, former R&D (DRDO), and honorary lecturer at Indian Institute of Technology.
Calling the Gulf War as one of the most intense periods in recent times, he stated that we should harness our potential to develop an excellent defence system. “The American cruise missiles are very effective,” he said.
He said India is the first country in the world to ever possess a super-sonic missile system. Super-sonic missile travels about three times faster than the speed of sound and flies on low altitude trajectories, making it a formidable asset to the nation’s defence tech. “It eliminates the enemy assets effectively,” he said.
The current research will be giving even more mettle to India’s defence, with the cost-effective and multiple-use hypersonic-missiles designed on the mythical Sudarshana Chakra of Lord Vishnu , which comes back to its original point after a pin-point attack.
