India today (Thursday) conducted an advanced air defense missile test when an incoming missile was successfully destroyed in flight by an interceptor missile. No details of this missile are presently available. But its success signals the entry of India into the big league.

The test was conducted in the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Wheeler Island in the Bay of Bengal, off the coast of Orissa, around 1,500 km east of capital New Delhi.

The hostile ballistic missile was a modified version of India's Prithvi missile and the interceptor was a new generation indigenous missile.

The critical detection radar is a modified version of an Israeli system, according to local TV channel NDTV.

On Sunday, the scientists had conducted a mock trial of the new high-speed missile by using an electronic target fired from the ITR, local TV channel Zeenews reported.
