India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) recently showcased a new weapon system at Exercise Bharat Shakti: a 250kg High-Speed Low Drag (HSLD) bomb equipped with a Range Extension Kit (REK).

The REK extends the operational range of the HSLD bomb, allowing Indian Air Force (IAF) pilots to engage targets from a safer distance. The REK integrates with the HSLD bomb’s existing guidance systems, including GPS and Inertial Navigation System (INS), for precise targeting.

The REK’s wing and tail unit enable a controlled glide, maximizing the extended range. India’s Innovation for Defence Excellence (IDEX) program recently called for industry collaboration to develop an even more advanced REK with an EO-IR (Electro-Optical/Infra-Red) guided warhead for terminal guidance.

DRDO is also working on similar REKs for its heavier 450kg and 1000kg HSLD bomb variants.
