The Defence Research and Development Organisation’s (DRDO) Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE) is gearing up for fresh developmental trials of the indigenously-developed Nirbhay subsonic cruise missile.

According to information obtained by, these trials are expected to take place within the next few weeks and will focus on testing the missile’s performance under various parameters and waypoint navigation scenarios. This phase is crucial before the Nirbhay can be offered for user trials by the Indian military.

The missile undergoing these trials is a significantly upgraded version, boasting several new features. It incorporates advanced avionics and software, along with a completely indigenous propulsion system. This marks a major step towards self-reliance in this critical defense technology.

The Nirbhay is designed for low-altitude penetration, capable of flying as low as 50 meters and reaching a maximum altitude of 4,000 meters. With an operational range of about 1,000 kilometers, it offers a potent long-range strike capability.

The successful completion of these developmental trials will pave the way for user trials by the Indian armed forces. This will allow for a comprehensive evaluation of the Nirbhay’s performance in real-world conditions, ultimately leading to its potential induction into the military’s arsenal.
