A Satellite Resistant Anti Satellite Missile Test Called Mission Shakti

By Admin | 29th Mar 2019

Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has submitted its report on March 27, 2019, to Dr. A.P.J. in Odisha. A successful anti-satellary (Anti-Satellite) missile test called 'Mission Shakti' from Abdul Kalam Island was tested.

India has joined the anti-satellite (A-SAT) missile countries in space. After the USA, Russia, and China, India is the fourth country to achieve this capability.

Ballistic missile defense (BMD) interceptor missile, developed by DRDO, targeted at the height of 300 kilometers in orbit in the lower Earth orbit (LEO) in the Earth's lower class in the hit to kill mode. Successfully killed Indian satellite (Satellite)


How many types of semantic orbit are

Scientists use different meanings of orbit for every mission. The satellite that has four rotations of the earth in one day is launched in orbit near the Earth. If two rounds have to be rotated then the distance will be increased slightly and if one has to rotate then the distance has to be increased.


Earth orbit is mainly divided into two parts

Circular orbit

Elliptical orbit


Circular orbit can be divided into three parts: Lower Earth Orbit, Medium Earth Orbit and Geosynchronous Orbit. Lower Earth Orbit ranges from 160 kilometers to 2 thousand kilometers. The satellite launched in it takes about 3 to 4 of the Earth in the day. In this orbit, knowing the weather, the satellite, the International Space Station has been installed. Snooping satellites are also installed in the same orbit.

At the same time, Medium Earth Orbit ranges from 2,000 kilometers to 36 thousand kilometers. The satellite launched in it revolves around Earth 2 times a day. It takes one round in 12 hours.

This is the first use of India's anti-satellary weapon and it is seen as a major success.

This mission is completely indigenous and this test has once again proved that indigenous weapon systems are very strong.

Now India is capable of protecting its assets in outer space. When an enemy country's satellite watches over us, then we can demolish it. In such a situation, we can say that our strength has increased in space.

However, the chances of its use are very low. No such example has come up yet when it was used by a country at the time of war.

However, if it is needed at the time of war, then India can use it. Pakistan has no satellite in this orbit.

Mission power does not violate the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, in which India is a signatory. This treaty only bans the weapons of mass destruction in space, not on the common weapons, this test has not been done against any country.

India's space capabilities are neither a threat to any country nor are they directed against anyone. The objective of mission power is to protect India's space assets and not to start the arms race in space.


History of Anti-Satellite Missile System

1985: The United States used the A-SAT system to destroy the P-781 satellite.

2007: China kills 865 kilometers high FY-1C weather satellite

2008: America kills passive USA -193 satellite under the name 'Operation Brunch Frost' code name.

2019: India on March 27 destroys a satellite at 300 km altitude in the lower orbit of the earth.
