CHANDIPUR, ODISHA (PTI): India has successfully tested the smart anti-airfield weapon system, capable of engaging ground targets in a range of 100 kms from a fighter aircraft, at the integrated test range in Chandipur, Odisha.

SAAW, an indigenously designed and developed 120 kg class smart weapon, developed by DRDO, is a light-weight high precision guided bomb and one of the world class weapon systems, a DRDO statement said.

The captive and release trials on Saturday were tracked by Radar and Telemetry ground stations at ITR during the entire duration of the flight.

The performance of all systems was satisfactory with all the mission objectives achieved, the statement said.

The government sanctioned the Rs 56.58 crore SAAW project in September 2013.

In May, the DRDO conducted the first test of the weapon system from the IAF Jaguar DARIN-II aircraft.
