DRDO Successfully Conducts Flight Test of ABHYAS

Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has conducted successful flight test of ABHYAS - Expendable High-speed Aerial Target (HEAT) from Interim Test Range, Chandipur in Odisha.  

The flight test was tracked by various RADARS & Electro Optic Systems and proved its performance in fully autonomous way point navigation mode. 

The configuration of ABHYAS is designed on an in-line small gas turbine engine and uses indigenously developed MEMS based navigation system for its navigation and guidance. The performance of the system was as per simulations carried out and demonstrated the capability of ABHYAS to meet the mission requirement for a cost effective HEAT.  

The configuration of ABHYAS is designed on an in-line small gas turbine engine and it uses indigenously developed MEMS based navigation system. 

‘Abhyas’ is designed for autonomous flying with the help of an autopilot.  

A Luneburg lens in the nose cone improves the radar cross-section of the target for weapons practice.  

It also has an acoustic miss distance indicator (AMDI) to indicate the missed distance.
