  1. PAD/AAD BALLISTIC MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM

Prithvi Air Defence (PAD) missile for high altitude interception, and the Advanced Air Defence (AAD) Missile for lower altitude interception. The two-tiered shield should be able to intercept any incoming missile launched from 5,000 kilometres away.[4] The system also includes an overlapping network of early warning and tracking radars, as well as command and control posts

  1. NAMICA (NAG MISSILE CARRIER)

The NAMICA version of the missile is a ‘lock-on before launch’ system, where the target is identified and designated before the missile is launched. As the targeting system is based on visual identification, the range is limited. The HELINA version on the other hand will use a ‘lock-on after launch’ system extending its range to 7 km. In this scenario, the missile is launched in the general direction of the target. As it approaches the target, images of the area ahead are sent back to the operator who will be able to identify enemy tanks. The command to lock on to a tank is then passed onto the seeker through an uplink mid-flight. After that, the missile homes in onto the target and destroys it.
