India Successfully Tested Hypersonic Cruise Missile Technology

Image
On 7 September 2020 India become the fourth country to join the Elite Group of Four who has the technology to produce Hypersonic Cruise Missiles, So far Russia, China, and the U.S. have the capacity to develop Hyper Sonic Cruise missile. India's Defence Research and Development Organisation has successfully flight tested the Indigenously Developed Hypersonic Technology Demonstrator Vehicle using the indigenously developed Scramjet propulsion system from APJ Abdul Kalam testing range in Balasore, Odisha. The scramjet engine is developed indigenously by DRDO which performs well in the test, and Hypersonic Missile is able to achieve the speed of Mach 6 or 2Km per second. Due to the very high speed and unpredicted path of Hypersonic missile, the enemy's Air Defence Systems has very less time to Track, and Engage.  In Today's Modern world there is no air defense system present which can intercept a Hypersonic cruise missile. The Scramjet is much more superior than Ramjet (Brahmo
