India’s next-generation anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capabilities are set to receive a significant boost with the Supersonic Missile-Assisted Release of Torpedo (SMART) system. Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), SMART is designed to be integrated into the Indian Navy’s existing anti-submarine warfare corvettes.

SMART employs a supersonic missile to carry a lightweight, electrically-propelled torpedo known as the Torpedo Advanced Light (TAL). This innovative system offers a crucial advantage: extended range. Unlike conventional torpedoes with limited reach, SMART can engage enemy submarines from hundreds of kilometres away, significantly expanding the Indian Navy’s ASW zone.

The system’s lethality is further enhanced by its precision targeting. Guided by real-time enemy submarine location data, the missile manoeuvres towards the target vessel. Upon reaching a designated release point, the missile ejects the TAL torpedo into the water. The torpedo then uses its self-homing capabilities to locate and engage the submarine.

According to sources familiar with the project who told, SMART is slated for deployment on the Indian Navy’s existing fleet of anti-submarine warfare corvettes once it receives production clearance. This integration ensures a faster operationalization of this advanced technology, bolstering the Navy’s overall ASW preparedness.
