INS Dhruv Played a crucial role in the recent test of Agni-V ICBM, tracked the MiRV warheads fantastically
India's most powerful tracking ship, INS Dhruv/VC-11184



India last Wednesday conducted the first user trial of its fully indigenous nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile, covering a range of about 5,000 kilometers and representing a second-strike capability against China. The first nighttime user trial of the Agni-5 ICBM was conducted by India’s Strategic Forces Command, which is responsible for managing nuclear and strategic weapons from the APJ Abdul Kalam Island in Odisha.

But the missile was tracked from start till the splashdown for the first time by the INS Dhruv, a 10,000-tonne satellite and ballistic missile tracking ship that was recently inducted in the presence of senior officials from the Indian Navy, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), and the National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO), among others.

This was the first outing of the INS Dhruv into the deep ocean as state-of-the-art long-range active scanned array radar (AESA) along with other sensors enabled it to scan various trajectories and flight paths of the Agni-V were it for the first time missile demonstrated multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV) capabilities by hitting two separate targets over the Bay of Bengal.

INS Dhruv is India’s first naval vessel that is capable of tracking nuclear missiles at a long-range, which assumes a special significance with an increasing threat of nuclear ballistic warfare in the Indo-Pacific region. INS Dhruv, with its anti-ballistic missile capabilities, will act as an early warning system for enemy missiles headed towards Indian cities and military establishments.
