Tejas inducted in IAF

India's first locally designed and manufactured Light Combat Aircraft 'Tejas' is formally inducted into the Indian Air Force (IAF) at a ceremony in Bangalore. Tejas was handed over to the Indian Air Force on Monday for what is called an initial operational clearance.

IAF has already placed orders with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited for 40 aircrafts, which is seen as a replacement for the MIG 21's.

The multi-role supersonic aircraft have undergone a series of tests. Tejas has completed all test points for low level flights, off the coast of Goa.

It has also conducted operations in the extreme climate of Leh and operated from an IAF air base in the South Western Air Command.

DRDO finalizing high altitude interception tests

DRDO is finalizing the missile defense test  that will attempt to intercept an incoming target at an altitude of more than 93 miles - nearly twice the reach of previous intercepts.
Defense Research and Development Organization Director General V.K. Saraswat told journalists "the trials are expected later this year."
India's missile interceptors have successfully brought down missiles nearly 50 miles above the earth's surface during the earlier trials. DRDO researchers ultimately aims to increase the interception altitude capabilities to as much as 186 miles.
India's missile defense program is comprised of extended-range radars and interceptors. The missile shield has had three successful tests in slightly more than four year
