Ministry Of Defence & Bharat Dynamics Limited Signs Defence Contract for Supply of ASTRA MK-I BVR AAM

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has inked a contract with Hyderabad-based public-sector Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) for the supply of ASTRA MARK (MK)-I Beyond Visual Range (BVR) Air-to-Air Missile (AAM) and related equipment to the Indian Air Force (IAF) and Indian Navy.

  • The contract was signed under the Buy (Indian-Indian Designed, Developed, and Manufactured (IDDM)) category and is worth Rs. 2,971 crores.

The project represents the spirit of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat,’ and will accelerate India’s transition towards self-sufficiency in Air-to-Air Missile (AAM).
The Defence Contract:
i.The purchase under the ‘Buy (Indian-IDDM)’ category refers to the purchase of products from an Indian vendor that have been indigenously designed, developed, and produced with a minimum of 50% Indigenous Content (IC) on a cost basis of the overall contract value.
ii.The technology to produce missiles of this class indigenously was not available until recently, but the ASTRA MK-I BVR AAM was designed and developed indigenously by the MoD’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

  • The technology transfer from DRDO to BDL for the production of the ASTRA MK-I missile and all associated systems has been completed, and production at BDL is currently in progress
  • The ASTRA MK-I missile and all associated systems for launch, ground handling, and testing were developed by DRDO in collaboration with the IAF.

iii. The project will provide opportunities in aerospace technology for at least 25 years for various Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs).
Strategic Significance:
i.The ASTRA MK-I BVR AAM missile was developed in response to IAF requirements for BVR as well as close-combat engagement, reducing dependence on foreign sources

  •  Own fighter aircraft can neutralise adversary aircrafts without exposing themselves to adversary air defence measures using stand-off ranges provided by AAMs with BVR capabilities.

ii.This missile outperforms several foreign missile systems in terms of technology and cost.

  • It has a top speed of more than four times the speed of sound and a maximum altitude of 20 kilometres (km), making it extremely flexible for air combat. It can combat enemy fighter aircraft at ranges of up to 75 km.

iii. The missile has been successfully trial tested by the IAF and is fully integrated into the Sukhoi 30 MK-I. It will be integrated with other fighter aircraft, such as the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas in a phased manner.
iv.The missile will be integrated into the Indian Navy’s MiG-29K fighter aircraft, which are stationed aboard the Navy’s aircraft carriers, enhancing the carriers’ lethality.
NOTE:

  • Only a few missile manufacturers in the United States, Russia, Europe, and China have mastered the technologies used in BVR AAMs. India has now become a member of this exclusive club.
  • A longer-range Astra Mark II is in the pipeline, capable of shooting down enemy fighters from a range of up to 100 km.
