India has issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) for a launch of an experimental flight vehicle in the Bay of Bengal for the period from 06-07 June 2022 as per information provided by Twitter user @detresfa_. The designated area is 3300 km in length which indicates it might be a test of
Intermediate-Range Ballistic Missile.

DRDO has been planning to test an improved variant of Agni-IV called Mk2 with Composite Canisters so it makes them highly mobile along with better operational flexibility. Agni-V was the first to get a canisterised system that was later also integrated into the new Agni-1P IRBM program.

Agni-IV which was earlier also called Agni II prime is a 3000-4000km range Intermediate-Range Ballistic Missile that was last tested in 2018. Agni-IV Mk2 if tested will incorporate not only a Canisterised system but also technologies made to fine-tune the Agni missiles to defeat anti-ballistic missile systems.
