BALASORE, ODISHA (BNS): The 32nd flight test of BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile was carried out at 1030 hrs from a test range at Chandipur off Odisha coast as part of Development trials, today on the 29th of July 2012.

The objective of the mission was to evaluate some of the newer subsystems which are produced from the Indian industry as part of production stabilisation. More than 25 such systems were incorporated in the development of the missile, BrahMos officials said.

The 32nd launch was primarily aimed at testing the new power systems, materials for airframe components, guidance scheme and various electric systems.

The data obtained from multiple telemetry stations of ITR are being analysed for large scale production by the Indian industries, they said.

The two-stage missile, the first one being solid and the second one ramjet liquid propellant, has already been inducted into the Army and Navy and the Air-Force version is in final stage of trial.

While induction of the first version of sophisticated BRAHMOS missile system in the Indian Navy commenced from 2005 with INS Rajput, it is now fully operational with two regiments of the Army.
