India successfully conducted five flight tests of the Beyond Visual Range Air- to-Air Missile (BVRAAM) ‘Astra’ from Sukhoi-30 MKI fighter platform, off Odisha coast. With this, the effort for building a state-of-the-art BVRAAM by DRDO, together with IAF has completed the user trial phase of the weapon system successfully. The technologies developed under the programme will be the building blocks for development of future variants of Air-to-Air and Surface-to-Air Missiles.
