India issues NOTAM warning for 21-22nd June for a missile test; Possible test of SMART

India has issued a NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) warning for a test launch of a missile system in the Bay of Bengal for the period of 21st to 22nd of June 2023 and the designated area for the NOTAM is around 750 kilometers in length and it could be the third test of the SMART (Supersonic Missile Assisted Release of Torpedo) System.

The SMART will not be limited to truck-based coastal batteries as the Indian Navy plans to arm them on frontline warships like Destroyers and Frigates.

All about SMART

SMART is a missile-assisted release of the lightweight Anti-Submarine Torpedo System forย anti-submarine warfare (ASW) operations far beyond the torpedo range. It is a canister-based missile system. The system has been designed to enhance anti-submarine warfare capability far beyond the conventional range of the torpedo.

SMART, when launched from a warship or a truck-based coastal battery, takesย off like a regular supersonic missile.

It covers most of its flight in the air at lower altitudes with a two-way data link from the warship or an airborne submarine target detection system and provides the exact location of the hostile submarine to correct its flight path midway.

Just when it approaches close enough to the submerged submarine, the missile will eject the torpedo system into the water and the autonomous torpedo will start moving towards its target to take out the submarine.

This system is a major breakthrough for stand-off capability in the anti-submarine warfare domain of the Indian Navy. India issues NOTAM warning for 21-22nd June for a missile test; Possible test of SMART IgMp
