Akash Prime

Akash Prime is the latest version of the Akash missile developed to improve the air defence of the Indian Armed Forces. It was successfully flight tested from the integrated test range in Odisha. During the flight testing, the missile intercepted and destroyed an unmanned aerial target.
The new missile is equipped in an indigenous active RF (radio frequency) seeker for improved accuracy. When compared with the existing Akash missiles, Akash Prime promises greater performance under a low-temperature environment at higher altitudes. It is set to be inducted into the Indian Army and Indian Air Force.
