It is a major achievement towards autonomous aircraft and would pave the way for ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ in terms of critical military systems, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh was quoted as saying.

Earlier on Wednesday, the indigenously developed high-speed extended target unmanned aircraft 'Abhyas' was successfully test-fired from the Integrated Test Site at Chandipur in Odisha. However, this plane took off at a low altitude. The test was monitored through various instruments including the Radar Electro Optical Targeting System deployed by ITR.

"In the test, the ATGM hit the bull's eye with textbook precision and successfully defeated the target at minimum ranges. Telemetry systems recorded the satisfactory flight performance of the missile," the defence ministry said in a statement.
