New Delhi: The Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) on Thursday conducted a successful maiden surface run of a High Endurance Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (HEAUV).

The test was conducted at Cochin Shipyard, International Ship Repair Facility(ISRF) Jetty in Kochi. DRDO said that the trial has met all the mission parameters.

Sharing the video of the test on X, DRDO wrote, “Maiden Surface run of High Endurance Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (HEAUV) meeting all the mission parameters were carried out successfully at Cochin Shipyard, International Ship Repair Facility(ISRF) Jetty, Kochi.”

Last month, DRDO conducted two successful flight tests of the Very Short-Range Air Defence System (VSHORADS) missile.

The tests were conducted from a ground-based portable launcher from the Integrated Test Range, Chandipur, off the coast of Odisha.

These tests were carried out against high-speed unmanned aerial targets under different interception scenarios. During all the test flights, the targets were intercepted and destroyed by the missiles, meeting the mission objectives, reported PTI.

The Ministry of Defence informed that VSHORADS is a Man Portable Air Defence System (MANPAD) designed and developed indigenously by the Research Centre Imarat (RCI) in collaboration with other DRDO laboratories and Indian industry partners.

The VSHORADAS missile incorporates many novel technologies, including miniaturised Reaction Control System (RCS) and integrated avionics, which have been successfully proven during the tests, as per PTI.

The missile is propelled by a dual thrust solid motor meant for neutralising low-altitude aerial threats at short ranges. The design of the missile, including the launcher, has been highly optimised to ensure easy portability.

The flight tests were witnessed by officials of the Indian Army, senior scientists from various DRDO laboratories, and industry partners, the PTI report added.
