India’s long-range Supersonic Missile Assisted Torpedo (SMART) system developed by Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) will not be limited to truck-based Coastal defence batteries as the Indian Navy has plans to also arm them on the frontline warships thus enhancing the country’s anti-submarine warfare capability.
Canister-based SMART is a Hybrid Missile system that carries an Advanced Light Torpedo Shyena, as its payload for the anti-submarine warfare (ASW) role. SMART has a range of 650km after which it drops an Advanced Light Torpedo Shyena using a parachute delivery system and release mechanism in the water.
Advanced Light Torpedo Shyena which has a range of another 20km will travel to the designated target to ensure a hunt and kill. SMART already has been tested twice successfully since it is based on the modified Pralay and Sagarika missile system need for more tests won’t be required.
