The interceptor is a 7.five-metre-long unmarried degree strong rocket propelled guided missile ready with a navigation gadget, a hi-tech computer and an electro-mechanical activator, the DRDO resources stated.
The interceptor missile had its very own cell launcher, comfortable records link for interception,independent tracking and homing capabilities and complicated radars, the assets added.
