India Accelerates Cruise Missiles Production through Public-Private Partnership after Successful ITCM Test
Indigenous Technology Cruise Missile (ITCM) test fired successfully few days ago

India’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) is spearheading a collaborative effort between public and private sector enterprises to bolster the manufacturing of sub-sonic, long-range cruise missiles. This initiative comes in the wake of the successful testing of the Indigenous Technology Cruise Missile (ITCM), marking a significant leap forward in India’s missile capabilities.

Indian Military strategists acknowledge the imperative of amassing a substantial arsenal of precision-strike conventional missiles, estimated to number in the thousands. This strategic build-up aims to effectively counter emerging threats along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and Line of Control (LOC).

The genesis of this program lies in the triumph of India’s maiden indigenous cruise missile, the Indigenous Technology Cruise Missile (ITCM), derived from the earlier Nirbhay Long Range Subsonic Cruise Missile project. Following a series of successful developmental trials, the ITCM is now primed for mass production, signaling a pivotal moment in India’s missile development journey.

This collaborative endeavor transcends mere component manufacturing. The MoD envisions both public and private entities engaging in the complete assembly process, fostering a symbiotic partnership aimed at enhancing India’s missile manufacturing capabilities.

While currently deployed from mobile launchers, efforts are underway to adapt the cruise missile for deployment from sea and air platforms. This strategic adaptation promises to augment the missile’s operational versatility, allowing for enhanced deployment options across varied terrains and scenarios.

Central to India’s quest for self-sufficiency in cruise missile technology is the indigenously developed Manik engine. Conceived by the Gas Turbine Research Establishment (GTRE) and slated for production by Godrej, the Manik engine represents a significant milestone in India’s indigenous missile propulsion capabilities. Its successful development sets the stage for broader public-private collaboration in India’s burgeoning missile production landscape.

India’s concerted efforts to ramp up cruise missile production through a strategic public-private partnership underscore its commitment to bolstering national security and advancing indigenous technological capabilities. By leveraging the synergies between public and private entities, India aims to cement its position as a formidable force in the realm of missile technology.
