Another Indian Missile Test: Another Failure

March 15, 2010

Times of India Reports:

BALASORE: India’s new Advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile, capable of destroying hostile missiles, on Monday encountered coordination problem and failed to take off during a planned launch from the Integrated Test Range at Wheeler Island off Orissa coast.

“Coordinated exercise between target missile Prithvi from Chandipur and the indigenously built interceptor from Wheeler Island could not take place properly during the planned trial,” defence sources said.

Though Prithvi – the target missile – was test-fired at 10.02 hrs from a mobile launcher from ITR’s launch complex-3 at Chandipur-on-sea, 15 km from here, the interceptor missile failed to blast off, they said.

Though the exact reason behind interceptor missile’s failure to take off was yet to be ascertained, preliminary analysis suggested that the target missile might have deviated from its stipulated trajectory, leading to lack of proper coordination, the sources said.

The trial, aimed at developing a multi-layer Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) system, was originally scheduled to be held on Sunday from the two different sites of the ITR but had to be put off due to some technical snag in a sub-system at Wheeler Island, they said.

Wheeler’s Island is located about 70 km across the sea from Chandipur and the AAD missile was to intercept the target at an altitude of 15 to 20 km over the sea.

  1. So there were TWO missile failures, not ONE:

    “Though Prithvi – the target missile – was test-fired….” and

    “….the target missile might have deviated from its stipulated trajectory…”

    They should be working on the Prithvi and getting that right first. It’s better to learn to walk before you can run.

    (My research tells me that the interceptor failed to take off because the matches were wet.)


    • lol…I choked on ure research.. lol!

      matches were wet… Man the Indian media is ridiculous..


  2. That’s correct. In India, we design our stuff ourselves, make a few mistakes and get things right. In Pakistan, you buy from China, repaint it, call it “indigenous” and get it right the first time….. who cares…


    • You make it sound so easy.


    • Yeah Please dispute,,, if it was MADE IN PAKISTAN Or MADE IN CHINA after it hits you… 😛


      • But they will not be there to dispute.


      • @anonymous

        Ofcourse he’ll be there in his next janam as a dog to sniff the Paki or chinese details off the ashes and bark about it to the World!


      • No disputes there. You buy. We design. Nothing works perfectly the first time, but rest assured, that when it does work, you guys will feel it 🙂


    • Indeginous is over rated. USA understood that by importing German knowledge and Israel by buying French technology. Not like Bramos is ndeginous either right? Or do you call your MIGs indeginous? Scorpine subs maybe?

      Whats more important then fancy shamncy words is Pakistan’s tested, proven and deployed ballistic and cruise missles and nuclear weapons which can hit any target in India, including you!


  3. @ amused
    yeah v get that.
    making amends in ur aircraft from 30 yrz right? =P


  4. Don’t worry Pakistanis it’s a success test…

    It’s just to raise the paki hair and about the failure and u people go offer namaz of india’s failure….

    …and remember it’s a Indian who developed the computer chip which is run today in billions of computers…
    It’s we who supply goat to u people eat mutton biryani…and u people who don’t know anything about animal husbandry…!!!

    REMEMBER just weeks back Obama had cautioned the american scientific community that indians will take the number one position in Sci and Tech…


    • Yeah rite,,, next incoming is that it was an Indian as well who invented the Wheel, made the 1st fire and washed his face with Goat piss and then later claimed it to be religion so people dont call him insane..


  5. lol lol lol lol 😀 😀 😀

    hahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahah hahahahahah 😀 😀

    Rising India, Shining India 😀 :D….The Next Super Crap !! 😀 😀 😀


    • he he he, good saying!


  6. Now, thats crap. Indians think the world has got all the spare time to read about the stories of their failures. Looks like they are joking with the whole wolrd.

    Why don’t they go slow, one by one and take small baby step at a time. Shameless people. Their sceintists need a milk feeder in their mouth like babies.


  7. india’s missle tests always fail…im not suprised!India cant do anything by itself,India is spending $11 billion on buying arms from US, Russia and others.Russia is already building them two nuclear power plants!
    it’s called rising india and shining india hahaha!


    • @ Khan

      Because they believe in “quantity”.


      • Though ironically, the only party that fully operationalized the concept of ‘quantity’ to its true potential, just happens to be our best ally and their biggest adversary.

        Ontopic: wow 🙂


      • Sometimes quantity greatly works you know like the 1971 war where it became east and west pak__


  8. INDIAN SCIENTISTS ARE NOT TO BE BLAMED FOR THEIR INEFICIENCY EVEN THE SCIENTISTS OF USA ARE INEFFICIENT IN THE FRONTIERS OF SCIENCE FOR EXAMPLE THEY DO NOT HAVE A CORRECT THEORY BEHIND THE WORKING OF LASER FUSION WHILE AS I HAVE COMBINED THE THEORY OF BUBBLE FUSION AND LASER FUSION ON THE ONE HAND AND THE LASER TECHNOLGY MINIATURISATION ON THE OTHERHAND FOR THE SUCCESSFUL OUT COME OF THE EXPERIMENT WHICH THE WESTERN SCIENTISTS ARE GOING TO PERFORM AGAIN (HOPEFULLY BASED ON MY THEORY)


  9. HOWEVER,THE INDIAN SCIENTISTS SHAL CONTINUE TO OBTAIN THE TECHNOLOGY THROUGH ILLEGAL MEANS OR LEGALLY FROM NOTORIOUS EVIL POWERS


  10. why did it “fail”?

    http://livefist.blogspot.com/2010/03/enemy-prithvi-failed-interceptor.html


  11. look no success is so important than those which comes after failures.we only learn from our failures. anyone can buy anything but one who make them r the real master. how many country have anti missile defence system? it was not a failure but a success.actually what happens is that the incoming missile deviates from its path hence the intercepter missile did not fired.thats proof of our technology.if a missile is not coming to india then what need to fire a anti missile system.ur media gives u only false news. u can get exact thing on internet.u can compare what u r taught in schools n what is available on internet.


  12. ya this missile was failure of India but failure is part of the success and for Pakistan, see your economic condition brothers. Your Government can’t give a one time meal to your peoples but they have money to buy weapons. I think one day you people will eat your missiles. hahahah lol hahahahahahhahahahah
