India has issued several Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs) announcing the closure of airspace for missile testing activities throughout December 2023. These NOTAMs indicate potential tests for various missile systems, raising questions about the specific types and intended purposes.

Here’s a breakdown of the announced tests:

NOTAM 1:

  • Dates: December 12th – 15th, 2023
  • Duration: 4 days
  • Purpose: Undisclosed

NOTAM 2:

  • Date: December 13th, 2023
  • Duration: 1 day
  • Designated area: 990 km radius
  • Potential test: IRBM from the Agni missile family

NOTAM 3:

  • Dates: December 21st – 29th, 2023
  • Duration: 9 days
  • Purpose: Undisclosed

While the specific types of missiles being tested in NOTAMs 1 and 3 remain unknown, the designated area of 990 km in NOTAM 2 suggests a potential test of an Intermediate-Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) belonging to the Agni family. This specific family includes missiles with ranges exceeding 2,000 km, making them capable of reaching targets deep inside enemy territory.
