Indian state run firm Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) conducted maiden flight test of indigenously developed surface-to-surface missile ‘Pralay’ on Wednesday.

The test was conducted on the Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Island off the coast of the Indian state of Odisha.

The new missile followed the desired quasi ballistic trajectory and reached the designated target with high degree accuracy, validating the control, guidance and mission algorithms. All the sub-systems performed satisfactorily. All the sensors deployed near the impact point across the eastern coast, including the down range ships, tracked the missile trajectory and captured all the events, the Indian Ministry of Defence said in a statement.

The missile is powered with solid propellant rocket motor and many new technologies. The missile has a range of 150-500km and can be launched from a mobile launcher. The missile guidance system includes state-of-the-art navigation system and integrated avionics.
