The Indian Air Force (IAF) is gearing up to bolster its offensive capabilities with a proposal to acquire nearly 200 New Generation Anti-Radiation Missiles (NGARM), also known as Rudram-I. The Rudram-I is an air-to-surface missile designed to neutralize enemy air defence systems, including surveillance and tracking radars as well as communication infrastructure. This empowers the IAF to effectively suppress enemy air defenses, paving the way for unhindered operations in contested airspace.

The Rudram-I boasts a sophisticated dual-seeker configuration. It employs a passive homing head seeker that detects and homes in on enemy radar emissions, making it effective against active radar systems. Additionally, a Millimeter Wave (MMW) seeker equips the missile to target even passive radar systems, further enhancing its operational flexibility.

First test-fired in 2019, it’s slated to replace the IAF’s existing Kh-31 and Martel Anti-Radiation Missiles, reducing dependence on foreign suppliers. Initial production plans involved collaboration between state-owned enterprises Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) and Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL). However, recent developments suggest that Adani Defence might take the lead in mass production.

While DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) expressed intentions for further user trials in 2023, details regarding their status remain undisclosed.
