India successfully test-fired its indigenously developed Advanced Air Defence (AAD) supersonic interceptor missile here today.

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) test-fired the missile from a defence test facility on Kalam Island, which is capable of destroying any incoming ballistic missile at low altitude.

This was the third supersonic interceptor test that took place this year, in which an incoming ballistic missile target was successfully intercepted.

The earlier two tests were conducted on 11 February and 1 March as part of attempts to have a full-fledged multi-layer Ballistic Missile Defence system.
