Agni V : the Indian nuclear beast reaching beyond China

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) had successfully reported that Agni 5 nuclear-capable ballistic missile was successfully launched on 10th December, on a road-mobile launcher at Dr. Abdul Kalam Island off the coast of Odisha.

How Agni V works

1. Programmed in a way that, it thrusts towards the earth to it's the target with an increased speed after reaching the peak trajectory, its path precisely directed by the  Ring laser gyroscope and inertial navigation system.

2. After entering the earth's atmosphere, its outer surface temperature raises beyond 4,000 degree Celsius due to atmospheric friction, and its internal temperature is maintained at 50-degree Celsius.

3. Finally, commanded by the onboard computer with the support of laser gyro-based inertial navigation system, micro inertial navigation system (MINS), fully digital control system and advanced compact avionics, the missile hit the designated target point accurately, meeting all mission objectives, the sources said.

4. The ships located in mid-range and at the target point tracked the vehicle and witnessed the final event.

5. All the radars and electro-optical systems along the path monitored the parameters of the missile and displayed them in real time.
