The rocket was launched at 12:45 pm from complex-III of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur and according to ITR Director B K Das “the mission met all its objectives.”

The Pinaka rocket mark-II is equipped with navigation, guidance and control kit and with this new rocket, it has now been transformed into a “guided Pinaka” which facilitates its range enhancement and accuracy.

 



All the radars, electro-optical and telemetry systems at the ITR constantly monitored the guided Pinaka throughout its flight path and found it up to mark.

Later in the day, defense Minister Manohar Parrikar also sent out his congratulations to the Army and DRDO for developing the ‘guided Pinaka; in a such a short span of time.

With this, India now has the capability of converting unguided systems into precision weapons.
