From a technical point of view, a ballistic is a missile whose launch path is a sub-orbital ballistic path. It is used to fire a weapon (nuclear weapon) at a predetermined target. It is guided only at the initial stage of missile launch. The principles of the arbital mechanic and ballistic principles determine the path after this. A chemical rocket engine carries the missile.

In a DRDO event held in Bengaluru recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that DRDO would have to come up with new innovations to make India self-reliant in the field of defense manufacturing. DRDO’s innovations play a major role in strengthening ‘Make in India’ in promoting a vibrant defence sector in the country.
