India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is bolstering the country’s missile defense capabilities with the establishment of a new test centre in Junput village, West Bengal. This project comes in response to the increasing demands on the existing Integrated Test Range (ITR) located in Chandipur, Odisha.

The new facility in Junput, strategically situated on the Bay of Bengal similar to Chandipur, will provide an additional operational area for testing various weapon systems. Latest satellite imagery reveals significant progress at the Junput site, particularly the construction of a launch pad. This launch pad is specifically designed to fire target ballistic missiles in support of upcoming tests of India’s Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) systems.

The ITR at Chandipur has played a vital role in testing and development of India’s missile arsenal for decades. However, with the growing complexity and sophistication of missile systems, the existing infrastructure has reached its capacity. The new test centre in Junput will alleviate this pressure, allowing for more efficient and streamlined testing procedures.

Furthermore, the Junput facility’s location offers distinct advantages. Its proximity to the Bay of Bengal provides a safe and controlled environment for missile launches over water. Additionally, the strategic location complements the existing testing infrastructure in Chandipur, creating a robust network for developing and evaluating India’s missile defense systems.
