NEW DELHI (BNS): The BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile is one of the major attractions at the mega event, Aero India 2023, which kick-started today at the Air Force Base, Yelahanka, Bengaluru.

BrahMos Aerospace (JV) is showcasing the BRAHMOS missile in various configurations, including the land-based weapon complex, ship-based weapon complex, underwater version and air-version along with the BRAHMOS air-borne launcher and equipment including systems and sub-systems manufactured by various industries associated with BrahMos.

 BRAHMOS is the world’s fastest, one of its kind, universal supersonic cruise missile with top speed of Mach 3 which operates on the ‘Fire and Forget Principle’. Stealth technology and guidance system with advanced embedded software provides the missile with cutting edge features.
 
Today BrahMos Aerospace enjoys a unique place in the world of defence. BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile is capable of hitting sea and land based targets beyond radar horizons. The missile with pinpoint accuracy has successfully demonstrated its speed, precision and power a number of times from naval ships, Mobile Autonomous Launchers and fighter aircraft.

The supersonic cruise missile has evolved over the years and added many more variants – from sea-to-land, sea-to-sea, land-to-land, land-to-sea, sub-sea-to-land, sub-sea to sea and air-to-land configurations. The missile can be fired either from static, mobile platforms (land & sea) or fighter aircraft, in solo or salvo mode. This multiplicity makes the weapon all the more versatile in taking on the enemy anywhere, anytime.

Many front-line warships of Indian Navy and artillery regiments of Indian Army are equipped with BRAHMOS missiles. The Indian Air Force's top fighter aircraft Sukhoi-30MKI, after being modified to carry 2.5 tonne missile integrated with half a tonne launcher, successfully demonstrated BRAHMOS missile’s firing capability.

BRAHMOS has also achieved historic milestones in the flagship “Make in India” programme by successfully indigenising major sub-systems such as booster, nose cap, canister, fuel management system and other major non-metallic airframe components. All launcher systems for the weapon are also being manufactured domestically. 100% of ground support equipment for the weapon complex are also being made in India.

The potential BRAHMOS, developed as a fusion of great scientific minds from India and Russia, has grown from strength to strength over the years and added new capabilities to meet divergent war scenarios. The JV has successfully involved defence industries of India and Russia in producing the BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile system. It has also brought together a number of competent defence firms and laboratories from both the partnering countries in developing and producing different sub-systems for the universal missile system which has rendered a unique strength to the Indian Armed Forces.

BrahMos Aerospace prides itself in possessing a full-fledged design centre, an Industrial Consortium for producing different sub-systems, a world-class integration, and check-out facilities with stringent quality control.

The universal BRAHMOS with its “multi-role, multi-platform, multi-mission” attributes has emerged as the foremost weapon system for modern-day network-centric warfare operations. Today, with numerous launches from various platforms, each achieving technological prowess with continuous upgrades, BRAHMOS is a system par excellence.

Aero India organised by the Department of Defence Production, Ministry of Defence, Govt. of India, is being held from February 13 to 17, 2023.
