New Delhi: The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Tuesday conducted two consecutive successful flight tests of Very Short Range Air Defence System (VSHORADS) missile at Chandipur off the coast of Odisha.

The defence ministry said flight tests were carried out from a ground-based man portable launcher against high speed unmanned aerial targets. It said the targets were successfully intercepted, meeting all mission objectives.

Complimenting DRDO and industry partners, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said the missile equipped with novel technologies will give further technological boost to the armed forces. VSHORADS is a man portable air defence system (MANPAD) meant for neutralising low altitude aerial threats at short ranges. It has been designed and developed indigenously by Research Centre Imarat, Hyderabad in collaboration with other DRDO laboratories and Indian industry partners.
