India’s quest for a robust long-range air defence system takes a significant step forward as Project Kusha, the indigenous LRSAM (Long Range Surface-to-Air Missile) program, reportedly completes the design phase. This development, according to an official source told, paves the way for the creation of crucial components that will form the LRSAM system.

Project Kusha, spearheaded by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), aims to equip the Indian Air Force (IAF) with a powerful tool to neutralize various aerial threats. The envisioned system boasts a range of nearly 350 kilometres and is designed to counter stealth fighters, conventional aircraft, ballistic and cruise missiles, precision-guided munitions, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Previous Reports confirmed a multi-layered approach to Project Kusha. While DRDO remains tight-lipped on specifics, leaked tender documents hint at a system incorporating at least two new missiles with varying ranges: 150km, 250km, and potentially a third reaching 350km. This multi-tiered defence would provide a comprehensive shield against aerial attacks.

The ambitious timeline for Project Kusha targets completion of testing and induction by the end of 2028-29. This necessitates an aggressive development phase, likely commencing in 2025-26. With the design phase reportedly concluded, India’s air defence capabilities are poised for a significant upgrade in the coming years.
