India Issues NOTAM Warnings for Twin-Missile Tests in the Bay of Bengal 12

India has issued a fresh Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) indicating forthcoming missile tests in the Bay of Bengal region. The NOTAM outlines two separate missile tests scheduled for the upcoming weeks, each targeting designated areas within the Bay of Bengal.

Missile Tests in the Bay of Bengal: What You Need to Know

The first NOTAM, effective from March 5th to March 11th, 2024, pertains to a designated area spanning 320 kilometers. Speculations suggest that this test could likely be another trial of the BrahMos missile, a potent supersonic cruise missile developed jointly by India and Russia. The Balasore missile test site in Odisha, known for its strategic significance, is expected to serve as the launch pad for this trial.

Agni-1P Medium-Range Ballistic Missile Test

The second NOTAM, slated from March 10th to March 16th, 2024, covers a broader designated area spanning 1400 kilometers. This test is anticipated to involve the Agni-1P Medium-Range Ballistic Missile (MRBM), with the Abdul Kalam Island missile test site likely serving as the launch site. The Agni series of missiles, developed indigenously by India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), play a pivotal role in India’s deterrence strategy, offering long-range precision strike capabilities.

Implications of the Missile Tests

These missile tests underscore India’s commitment to enhancing its indigenous missile capabilities and strengthening its defense preparedness. The BrahMos and Agni missile systems are integral to India’s defense strategy, providing the country with a credible deterrence against potential threats. The tests also demonstrate India’s technological prowess in developing advanced missile systems, showcasing its capabilities on the global stage.


India’s issuance of NOTAM warnings for twin-missile tests in the Bay of Bengal highlights the country’s proactive approach to maintaining a robust defense posture. The tests, involving the BrahMos and Agni-1P missiles, are significant milestones in India’s quest for self-reliance in defense technology. As India continues to strengthen its defense capabilities, these tests serve as a reminder of the nation’s commitment to safeguarding its sovereignty and security.
