    Two little known villages in Alwar and Pali districts will soon gain strategic importance as they have been selected by the Defence Ministry’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) for setting up radars to track enemy missiles.

    The forest department has cleared the acquisition of 850 hectares of land in Khoa in Alwar district and 350 hectares in Roopnagar for installing ballistic missile defence grid that will protect the western and northern parts of the country.

    This was done after the union ministry of environment and forest in 2014 cleared the DRDO proposal on the conditions laid down by the ministry.

    According to A K Singh, additional principle chief conservator of forest, the state government following the clearance given by the union ministry has allotted then land to to DRDO.

    The ballistic missile defence grid will help guard New Delhi and Mumbai.

    The state government has also allotted 80 hectares of land in Pilani for setting up the Bramhos missile assembly line .

    These two sites in the state have been strategically chosen by DRDO and has a stealth feature. The ballistic missile defence system can be put in place at short notice.

    To counter air-borne threats, DRDO will put a mixture of counter-attack missiles which will be able to shoot down enemy missiles both within the earth’s atmosphere (endo-atmospheric) and outside it (exo-atmospheric).

    The shield, developed by DRDO, has already undergone a series of successful tests and can destroy an incoming ballistic missile within the range of 2,000km.

    The Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) system will require minimum human intervention due to the complete automation of tracking devices and counter-measures.

    During the test stage, DRDO used variants of Prithvi missiles as simulated targets and successfully intercepted them in mid-air.

    All the necessary elements such as long-range radars and tracking devices, real-time data link and mission control system required for installing the BMD missile system have been also been successfully tested by the DRDO and was upgraded last year.

    It never ceases to amaze me how willing India is to disclose such sensitive information with apparently no real reason to.

    interesting location,



    So it basically split Pak into half, One radar is going to take care of the entire Pakistan. This is the main LRTR we have been discussing it has more than 1500 kms of tracking range. Our own version of pill box radar.

    Once Aimed at Pakistan, Indian Nuclear Program Sets Missile Sights on China
    New Delhi (Sputnik) — India has decided to install its homemade ballistic missile defense systems at two villages in the western state of Rajasthan. The villages in Alwar and Pali are both less than 800 kilometers from the Pakistani capital Islamabad.
    The counter attack missiles will be able to provide double layered security with the capacity to shoot down enemy missiles both within the earth's atmosphere (endo-atmospheric) and outside it (exo-atmospheric). State owned Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) had conceived the programme in 1999 and since then, the programme has witnessed many trials and upgrades.

    The ready version consists of long-range tracking radar developed in partnership with Israeli company Elta. The second component is a computerized command and control system that plots and predicts the intruding missile's flight path and assigns interceptor missiles to destroy it. The third component is the interceptor missiles and includes the endo-atmospheric missile can intercept incoming targets at an altitude of 15 to 25 kilometers and the exo-atmospheric missile can kill an incoming ballistic missile within the range of 2000km. DRDO has claimed that the strike range of the exo-atmospheric missile is being upgraded to 5000 km.

    India, Pakistan Missile Race Continues Unabated
    Some more tests will be conducted in the coming months before the system is commissioned into the Indian armed forces. The latest successful tests of the endo-atmospheric as well as exo-atmospheric interceptor missiles were conducted in March this year.
    "The complete event including the engagement and destruction was tracked by a number of electro-optical tracking systems using infrared imagery. The launch has proved the Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) prowess of the country," DRDO had claimed on March 1 this year.

    With this capability, India has now entered the elite league of nations having this capability. The other four countries are US, Russia, Israel and France.

    India's decision to install the advance ballistic missile system near its border with Pakistan stems from the fact that the two nuclear-armed neighbors are engaged in a prolonged territorial dispute and have gone to war three times after their partition in 1947.

    why i think this also has something to do with S 400 purchase & integration with Israeli radar

    You are thinking correctly. It will be at least four layered BMD with two more stages provided by S-400 and LR-SAM systems. They all be integrated in to a single aerospace defence command centre.

    This is part of Indian BMD phase 1 which was started in 90s. Two batteries will be deployed.

    S400 as of now don't have BMD capability and an israeli radar won't solve that.

    foolish desi media reporting.

    Its a CMD not BMD. Google earth Alwar district. its mountains. why do you need to place a radar on a hill top of you want to track a BM? all it has to do is point at the sky from middle of nowhere, not at pakistan. You would be needing a radar on an elevation if you want to track a ground hugging CM.

    there is no official statement from MOD or drdo its a BDM. only assumptions based on a statement given by "A K Singh, additional principle chief conservator of forest" is than even a official designation?

    If a bdm is deployed these chest beating media wouldnt be knowing about it. Does the media know the location of all the agni series missile deployment?

    This is BMD and the report is correct. There is no CMD program. You are asking for press release and saying there won't be any?

    No offense, but wat im saying is it could be a ashwini or arudhra radars part of the IACCS program(in my opinion) or it could be nothing important. What reason would be there for a swordfish radar on a hill top? And the news provides no official sources what so ever but a qoute from conservator of forests. Im hope he and the one who wrote the article have knowledge of how a bdm even works. I would bank on such news when an official source from army, Iaf or mod says so, if you go on to believe desi journalists who quote a forest conservative in a Anti ballistic missile defense system article there is no difference btw us and pdf rhetoric.
