DRDO conducts a successful flight test of the Enhanced version of PINAKA Rocket System


The enhanced version of the Pinaka rocket would replace the existing Pinaka Mk-I rockets

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Wednesday conducted a successful flight test of an Enhanced version of PINAKA rocket from the Integrated Test Range, Chandipur off the coast of Odisha. Development of Enhanced Pinaka system was taken up to achieve longer range performance compared to an earlier design with a reduced length. The design and development have been carried out by Pune based DRDO laboratories, namely Armament Research and Development Establishment, ARDE, and High Energy Materials Research Laboratory, HEMRL. A total of six rockets were launched in quick succession and the tests met complete mission objectives. Rockets tested have been manufactured by M/s Economic Explosives Limited, Nagpur, to whom the technology has been transferred. All the flight articles were tracked by Range instruments such as telemetry, radar, and Electro-Optical Tracking Systems which confirmed the flight performance. The enhanced version of the Pinaka rocket would replace the existing Pinaka Mk-I rockets which are currently under production. Source: PIB Delhi
