India issues 2nd NOTAM warning for this month with an experimental flight range of less than 355kms
The issued Area Warning or NOTAM for 24-25th February



India has issued a second Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) for this month for a launch of an experimental flight vehicle in the Bay of Bengal this month for the period from 24-25 February 2022 as per information provided by Twitter user @detresfa_. The first NOTAM for the period from 26-27 February 2022 still stands.
The designated area is 355 km in length which indicates it might be the first test of much anticipated 'Desi S-400' codenamed as 'XR-SAM' or 'Extra Long Range Surface to Air Missile' which will have a designated range of up to 350km. This can be a test of Hypersonic Technology Demonstrator Vehicle (HSTDV) too, since DRDO had announced plans to carry out fresh trials of the missile but it could be some other missile system too.

NOTAM for the period from 26-27 February 2022 seems to be for the developmental trial of the long-range Astra Mk2 beyond visual range air to air missiles.
