This would include funds for the integration and testing of the BrahMos on Su-30MKI of the IAF. The missile is designed keeping in mind its target, trajectory, warhead, range, velocity and launch platform. [239] In November 2020, Secretary of Defense Delfin Lorenzana said that the program to acquire medium-range ramjet supersonic BrahMos cruise missiles is moving forward but getting enough funds remains a challenge. Its 2.8 mach speed means that it cannot be intercepted by some existing missile defence systems and its precision makes it lethal to water targets. [55] The Indian Army confirmed that the test was successful and the army is satisfied with the missile. Air-breathing ramjet propulsion is much more fuel-efficient than rocket propulsion, giving the BrahMos a longer range than a pure rocket-powered missile would achieve. [33] The following ship classes of the navy are equipped with BrahMos: The Brahmos Block I was inducted into the army on 21 June 2007. The government had earlier also approved the deployment of Block-III version of the BrahMos missiles, which have “steep dive, trajectory manoeuver, and top-attack capabilities” for mountain warfare in Arunachal Pradesh, as was reported by TOI. [citation needed], One of the major issues regarding sales of the missile is that the nations looking to buy may have stressful relations with allies and trading partners of Russia. [35], Keltec (now known as BrahMos Aerospace Trivandrum Ltd or BATL), an Indian state-owned firm, was acquired by BrahMos Corporation in 2008. Notably, India has locally developed and successfully tested a seeker (responsible for tracking the target) for the missile that guides it during the terminal phase (the final phase of a missile’s flight trajectory). [236] In recent years, the export of BrahMos to Vietnam has picked up pace with plans and negotiations reaching a possible conclusion in mid-2016. [51] According to BrahMos Corporation, another test of the new missile was to be conducted within one month,[52] but it was eventually conducted on 4 March 2009 and was deemed successful. India on Saturday successfully test-fired the BrahMos missile with an extended range of 450 km, with officials calling it a "text book launch". BrahMos is a supersonic medium-range liquid-fuelled ramjet-powered cruise missile that can be launched from sea, land and air. On 26 February 2012, A. Sivathanu Pillai said that the air-launched version of BrahMos is being developed and will be tested by the end of 2012. [49][50] The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) said that there were "small hitches" in the last stage of the test firing due to delay in input of satellite navigation input to the Inertial Navigation System, the missile travelled for 112 seconds instead of the slated 84 seconds and fell 7 km away from the target. - Mr. Sudhir Kumar Mishra, "BrahMos is not only a successful Joint Venture but also a model for cooperation which has immense political value for our two countries" - Mr. Dmitry Rogozin, "BrahMos JV is a unique venture which has given substantial guidelines in defence design inputs, engineering inputs, production related culture and ultimately in pushing the technology base forward" - Dr. V G Sekaran, "BrahMos JV is most suitable model, which has withstood the test of time and is recommended to be followed for realization of all high end products with our country." It can be released from the height of 500 to 14,000 metres (1,640 to 46,000 ft). The missile was launched at about 10.15 am from the launch complex three of the ITR and successfully flew in its pre-set trajectory meeting its mission objectives, Defence Research and Development (DRDO) sources said. Dr. A. Sivathanu Pillai, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited, described the June 13 launch as "a big success". [1][2] The ship-launched and land-based missiles can carry a 200 kg warhead, whereas the aircraft-launched variant (BrahMos A) can carry a 300 kg warhead. My priorities will be indigenisation of missile development in India, capacity building for larger production, meeting the production orders ahead of schedule to ensure delivery of missiles on time and to ensure different versions of BRAHMOS missiles to meet the aspirations and requirements of the defence force including Army, Navy & Air Force. Trajectory of Hypersonic Gliding Vehicles (HGV) designed and optimized generally is an especial path with actual task requirements, which mostly provide feasible flight information for the design of guidance and control system. The cannisterised missile is capable of being launched vertically from underwater and had been successfully flight tested from a submerged platform. [46] The BrahMos I Block-I for the army was successfully tested with new capabilities in the deserts of Rajasthan, at a test range near Pokharan in December 2004 and March 2007. [85][86], A demonstration flight was carried out at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited Nashik on 25 June 2016 as a modified Su-30MKI carrying BrahMos-A underwent a successful trial flight,[87] the first time a heavyweight supersonic cruise missile had been integrated on a long-range fighter aircraft; the project to adapt the weapon for air launch was approved in 2011, but was bogged down with technology transfer and intellectual property rights concerns. [186][187], Missile is likely to be ready in late 2022. BrahMos is … Both of these new variants will feature the Mach 2.8 speed of the original BrahMos missile, roughly three times the speed of sound.As the name implies, vertical deep-capability allows the missile to be fired at a “near-vertical” trajectory of 90 degree, climbing fourteen 14 kilometers before making making a steep dive toward its target. The required modifications in SU-30 MKI for interface with the missile launcher and integration with the weapon control of the aircraft are being carried out together with Indian Air Force and Sukhoi Design Bureau. Stealth technology and guidance system with advanced embedded software provides the missile with special features. Brahmos test-fired from Su-30mki Site Map The inclusion of the powerful weapon system in the Indian Army has given it a distinct operational advantage to knock down any enemy target even in the most difficult and hidden terrains. Initially Brahmos-NG was referred to as Brahmos-M.[182] Additionally, the BrahMos-NG will have an AESA radar rather than the mechanically scanned one on the PJ-10. Deployment depends on the requirement of the Indian Navy or navies of friendly countries. [18], The high speed of the BrahMos likely gives it better target-penetration characteristics than lighter subsonic cruise-missiles, such as Tomahawk. On 30 September 2020, India successfully test-fired an extended range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile. Air-launched, anti-ship variant (In induction), Air-launched, land-attack variant (In induction). China is one of the main nations that has objections about its neighbours getting these missiles for their navies. [188], The former President of India, A. P. J. Abdul Kalam asked BrahMos Aerospace to develop an advanced version of the BrahMos cruise missile to maintain India's lead in the field. Each mobile autonomous launchers will consist of two to three missile tubes. BrahMos, a potent supersonic missile in the Indian arsenal, is the world's fastest anti-ship cruise missile in operation. First off, Hypersonic brahmos is still at least 3-5 years away from induction and pakistan has not designed any indigenous MLRS system as of now. Fired from a moving ship at a decommissioned vessel, First production missile integrated at BrahMos Integration Complex, Hyderabad, Failed to correctly discriminate target located within a cluster, First successful test in a target discriminatory role, Operational test of the second army regiment, Developmental flight test with 25 new subsystems and components, Tested with a GLONASS navigation system derived from, Tested in steep dive-cum-target discrimination mode, First test with advanced guidance system and indigenously built software algorithm, 2 missiles tested in top attack configuration, Tested Indian fuel management system and a few non-metallic airframe components, Tested to validate service life extension of the missile under extreme weather conditions. It will be deployed in Arunachal Pradesh. [224][225] The defence ministry reported that due to the size and hull specifications of the BrahMos, few if any of its new ships will be able to accommodate it. [17] It is based on the Russian P-800 Oniks cruise missile and other similar sea-skimming Russian cruise missile technology. Moreover, because its trajectory cannot be predicted it is difficult to defend against.

The name BrahMos is a portmanteau formed from the names of two rivers, the Brahmaputra of India and the Moskva of Russia. To carry the missile, the Su-30MKI undercarriage had to be strengthened, which also required new hard points and structural modifications. The BrahMos missile has an identical configuration for land, sea, and sub-sea platforms. Both land attack and Air launched versions were tested in two firings. [23], India wanted the BrahMos to be based on a mid range cruise missile like the P-700 Granit. During live firing on Wednesday, the weapon scored a direct and precise hit on the designated target while traveling at mach 2.8-3 velocity in complete trajectory. He also said that a new takeoff engine for the launching of the missile in air and at extremely high altitudes had been developed, and the initial test firing of the missile would be undertaken from the Su-30 MKI but did not specify the dates. Two Su-30MKI of the IAF would be modified by the HAL at its Nashik facility where they will also be integrated with the missile's aerial launcher. It can engage ground targets from an altitude as low as 10 metres for surgical strikes without any collateral damage. Brahmos’ earlier range of 300 km, made it impossible to hit targets deep inside Pakistan with the supersonic cruise missile. By April 2013, Brahmos has been inducted in eight warships of the Indian Navy. India holds 50.5% share of the joint venture and its initial financial contribution was US$126.25 million, while Russia holds 49.5% share with an initial contribution of US$123.75 million. of Madhya Pradesh, Motivational Session with the ignited minds of Apeejay STYA University, BrahMos in DRDO Exhibition 2016, Parliament of India, BrahMos Day Celebrations, 12th and 13th June 2015, The Machinist Super CEO 2015 award and The Machinist Super Shop Floor 2015, BrahMos Awarded as 'BEST JV' at Aerospace & Defense Awards 2015, Shri Manohar Parrikar, honourable Defence Minister visited BrahMos Complex, Hyderabad on 7 Feb 2015, Majestic Display of BRAHMOS Weapon System during the 66th Republic Day Celebrations on 26 January 2015 at Rajpath, New Delhi, Seminar on Innovation: Torch bearer of 21st Century during Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2015, Gandhinagar on 12 Jan 2015, CEO & MD, BrahMos Aerospace meets with India's Missile Man, Shri Sudhir Kumar Mishra joins BrahMos as its new CEO & MD, BrahMos Missile Featuring Indigenous Booster Successfully Flight Tested, Message of Condolence on the Passing of Dr. Alexander Naumovich Semaev, BRAHMOS Supersonic Cruise Missile, with major indigenous systems, successfully test-fired, Defence Minister chairs first DAC meeting, clears BRAHMOS mobile coastal battery for Navy, Eastern Command Unit Test-Fired BRAHMOS Missile from Car Nicobar Islands, "Time has come for BrahMos Aerospace to work on Mark-II version of BRAHMOS so that we will still be the market leader in hypersonic cruise missiles." NEW DELHI: India will undertake multiple operational firings of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile. READ MORE: India to Test Fire Air-Launched BrahMos-A Supersonic Cruise Missile Soon "The launch from the aircraft was smooth and the missile followed the desired trajectory before directly hitting the land target", the IAF, which had postponed the test due to a cyclone in April, said. The missile has gone through complete cycle of ground trials. The ship-launched and the land based BrahMos can carry a 200kg warhead whereas the CM-302 can carry up to 250 kg warhead. It is the world's fastest anti-ship cruise missile in operation. It is the world's fastest anti-ship cruise missile in operation. The unpredictable nature of the trajectory it takes is also what makes it more difficult to defend against. BrahMos, the supersonic cruise missile was successfully test fired by INS Chennai, hitting a target in the Arabian Sea. The 2.5-ton air-launched version of the BrahMos (BrahMos-A) missile, named after India's Brahmaputra River and Russia's Moskva River, has an operational range of around 300 km. The government had earlier approved the deployment of Block-III version of the BrahMos missiles, which have “steep dive, trajectory manoeuver, and top-attack capabilities” for mountain warfare, in Arunachal Pradesh as a deterrent against China, as was reported by TOI. [67][68][69], BrahMos was tested with an Indian seeker for the first time on 22 March 2018,[70] and was tested with an India-developed propulsion system, airframe and power supply on 30 September 2019.[71]. All the instrumentation at the Interim Test Range tracked the missile over its trajectory of 290 km until it impacted on the sea. Hypersonic weapons refer to weapons that travel faster than Mach 5 (~3,800mph) and have the capability to maneuver during the entire flight. [240] The procurement process of BrahMos was already in the advanced stage by March 2020 but the COVID-19 pandemic halted the process and caused the Philippines reprioritizing its budget. The operational BrahMos regiments are:[14][217], India has deployed Brahmos along with long range cruise missile Nirbhay and Akash surface to air missile to deter Chinese aggression along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh. For the test, the missile had to identify a building among a cluster of buildings in an urban environment. The first regiment with five mobile launcher cost $83 million to set up. Anti-aircraft carrier variant (tested in March 2012) – the missile gained the capability to attack aircraft carriers using the supersonic vertical dive variant of the missile that could travel up to 290 km. The Indian Air Force Wednesday said it has successfully test-fired the aerial version of the supersonic BrahMos cruise missile from a Su-30 MKI fighter aircraft. [24][25], In 2016, as India became a member of the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), India and Russia are now planning to jointly develop a new generation of Brahmos missiles with 800 km-plus range and an ability to hit protected targets with pinpoint accuracy. Ballistic missiles are powered for the initial half of their flight path and they use gravity to complete their trajectory. #IndianAirForce successfully fired #BrahMos 'air version' missile from the Su-30 MKI today. “Formidable Supersonic Cruise Missile BrahMos was successfully flight tested at 8.42 AM today at Pokhran test range, Rajasthan. [235] On 20 April 2016, BrahMos Aerospace spokesman Praveen Pathak said that the first export contract on delivering BrahMos to a country in the Asian-Pacific Region will be signed by the end of 2016. BrahMos fired from Sukhoi, made an accurate target and completely destroyed it. BrahMos also flies at a range of 290 km trajectory. Integrated Test Range and Kalaikunda airbase. The government had earlier also approved the deployment of Block-III version of the BrahMos missiles, which have “steep dive, trajectory manoeuver, and top-attack capabilities” for mountain warfare in Arunachal Pradesh, as was reported by TOI. Talks could begin in 2017. Submarine-launched, land-attack variant (under development, expected completion in 2011), This page was last edited on 15 January 2021, at 20:32. But cruise missiles are powered throughout. [22], 40 IAF SU-30MKI are to undergo modifications to be equipped to carry the missile. Find out more at http://missionjuno.swri.edu and http://www.nasa.gov/juno.The Juno spacecraft is scheduled to depart from Earth in August 2011. During live firing on Wednesday, the weapon scored a direct and precise hit on the designated target while traveling at mach 2.8-3 velocity in complete trajectory. The land-launched and ship-launched versions are already in service. BrahMos Aerospace planned to deliver the missile to the IAF in 2015, where it is expected to arm at least three squadrons. The missile met all the mission requirements. [6] On 20 January 2020, the IAF commissioned its first squadron of Su-30MKI fighters equipped with the PJ-10 BrahMos-A missile. On 14 June 2004, another test was conducted at ITR and BrahMos was fired from a mobile launcher. “The launch from the aircraft was smooth and the missile followed the desired trajectory and achieved a direct hit on the sea target, off Odisha coastline,” an official release said. [53] BrahMos was test-fired again on 29 March 2009. The cost of adapting the BrahMos for air launch was "phenomenal," but efforts to downsize the missile were abandoned after an attempt to reduce the size of the ramjet. Defence scientists are already working on achieving a 90-degree steep-dive capability. #IndianAirForce successfully fired #BrahMos 'air version' missile from the Su-30 MKI today. [176][177] Development could take 7–8 years to complete. [18][19][20] The land-launched and ship-launched versions are already in service. It can be dropped from 500 to 14,000 metres. [178] [15][179], BrahMos-NG (Next Generation) is a mini version based on the existing BrahMos, will have same 290 km range and mach 3.5 speed but it will weigh around 1.5 tons, 5 metres in length and 50 cm in diameter, making BrahMos-NG 50 percent lighter and three metres shorter than its predecessor. [36] Approximately ₹1,500 crore (equivalent to ₹34 billion or US$471.7 million in 2019) will be invested in the facility to make BrahMos components and integrate the missile systems. Induction of the first version of BRAHMOS Weapon Complex in the Indian Navy commenced from 2005 with INS Rajput as the first ship. India used an under-development version of the Brahmos surface-to-surface missile. Industry sources say that interested countries include Vietnam, Indonesia, and Venezuela. India has offered the Philippines an arrangement to acquire the missiles through soft loan but President Rodrigo Duterte is reportedly not keen on taking the offer. BRAHMOS is the first supersonic cruise missile known to be in service. The liquid ramjet or the second stage then takes the missile closer to 3 Mach speed in cruise phase. BRAHMOS is a two-stage missile with a solid propellant booster engine as its first stage which brings it to supersonic speed and then gets separated. [169], India and Russia intend to make 2,000 BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles over the next ten years through their joint venture company, and nearly 50% of them are expected to be exported to friendly countries. It is the fastest supersonic cruise missile in the world. BrahMos successfully hit the intended target in two and a half minutes of launch. But cruise missiles are powered throughout. The BrahMos (designated PJ-10)[15] is a medium-range ramjet supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarine, ships, aircraft, or land. The launch and separation of the missile went off smoothly, with the following the desired trajectory before hitting the designated target.
