  • Supersonic Missile-Assisted Release of Torpedo (SMART) system was successfully flight-tested recently from Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Island off the coast of Odisha.
  • SMART is a next-generation missile-based light-weight torpedo delivery system, designed and developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to enhance the anti-submarine warfare capability of the Indian Navy far beyond the conventional range of lightweight torpedo.
  • The missile was launched from the ground mobile launcher. Several state-of-the-art mechanisms such as symmetric separation, ejection and velocity control have been validated in this test.
  • The canister-based missile system consists of several advanced sub-systems, namely two-stage solid propulsion system, electromechanical actuator system, precision inertial navigation system etc.
  • The system carries advanced light-weight torpedo as payload along with parachute-based release system.
