India Issues NOTAM: Schedules Missile Test from Abdul Kalam Island in the Bay of Bengal

India has issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) from June 1st to June 2nd, 2023, indicating a missile test to be conducted from Abdul Kalam Island in the Bay of Bengal as per information provided by Twitter user Damien Symon@detresfa The designated area for the test covers a range of 700 kilometres, leading to speculation that it may involve ballistic missiles.

One of the potential missile systems that could be tested during this period is the Pralay Tactical Surface-to-Surface Missile. With a range similar to the designated area, the Pralay missile has been undergoing developmental trials. The Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has already secured orders for over 300 of these missiles from the Indian Air Force and Indian Army.

The missile test serves as a crucial step in the final phases of the Pralay missile’s development, allowing scientists and engineers to assess its performance and gather valuable data. These tests are essential to ensure the missile’s effectiveness, accuracy, and reliability before it is officially inducted into the armed forces.

The Pralay missile system, once fully developed and operational, will significantly bolster India’s defence capabilities. As a surface-to-surface missile, it will provide the Indian armed forces with an advanced tool for precise and powerful strikes against strategic targets, enhancing the nation’s deterrence capabilities.
