Odisha CM Congratulates DRDO for Successfully Testing SFDR Propulsion Based Missile System

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today congratulated the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) for successful test flight of the second indigenously developed ‘Solid Fuel Ducted Ramjet’ (SFDR) propulsion based missile system from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur in Balasore district.

SFDR technology will help in development of long range air-to-air missiles in the country, the CM said.

"The success of SFDR propulsion technology is a significant milestone and will pave the way for development of long-range air-to-air missiles in the country," a Defence statement said.

The missile system was guided to high-altitude to simulate aircraft release conditions and subsequently nozzle-less-booster was ignited.
The SFDR-based missile accelerated to achieve the ramjet Mach number successfully, the statement said.

The trajectory was tracked by telemetry and radar stations till touchdown and all the mission objectives have been met.
