The Indian Naval and Defense Research and Development Organization has successfully tested the “Vertical Launch Short Range Surface to Air Missile” (VL-SRSAM), firing it on a high-speed aerial target mimicking a target aircraft, while senior Indian officials observed the test.

Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral R Hari Kumar said, “That the development of this indigenous missile system will further strengthen the defensive capabilities of the Indian Navy.”

While the Secretary of the Department of Defence R&D & Chairman DRDO Dr. G Satheesh Reddy said, “The test has proved the integration of indigenous weapon systems onboard Indian Naval Ships.”
