India test-fires Agni-5 missile with MIRV tech, PM Narendra Modi praises DRDO scientists

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 11 Mar 2024, 06:51 pm

Indian PM Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) scientists for conducting the successful maiden flight test of the indigenously developed Agni-5 missile.

The missile is aided by Multiple Independently Targetable Re-entry Vehicle (MIRV) technology.

This will ensure that a single missile can deploy multiple warheads at different locations, reported Hindustan Times.

With the  test of Mission Divyastra, India has joined a list of elite nations which have the Multiple Independently Targetable Re-entry Vehicle (MIRV) technology.

Sources told India Today that this cutting-edge system features indigenous avionics systems and high-precision sensor packages, ensuring the re-entry vehicles precisely hit their target points. 

PM tweets praising scientists

Indian PM Narendra Modi posted on X: " Proud of our DRDO scientists for Mission Divyastra, the first flight test of indigenously developed Agni-5 missile with Multiple Independently Targetable Re-entry Vehicle (MIRV) technology."
