India’s first N-missile tracking ship Dhruva: Weighing 10,000 tons, the ship is capable of remotely tracking nuclear ballistic missiles and is at the heart of India’s anti-ballistic missile capability.
National Security Adviser Ajit Doval hopes to launch India’s first satellite and ballistic missile tracking ship Dhruva from Visakhapatnam on September 10.
It also has the ability to map maritime beds for research and identification of enemy submarines.
The inaugural function will be attended by Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Karambir Singh and NTRO Chairman Anil Dasmana along with senior DRDO and Navy officials.
The 10,000-tonne ship, which is part of the classified project, will be central to India’s future ballistic missile capability as it serves as an early warning system for enemy missiles aimed at Indian cities and military establishments.
The ship was crucial to maritime domain understanding in the Indo-Pacific and was launched at the beginning of the era of underwater armed and reconnaissance drones.
Since both China and Pakistan have nuclear ballistic missile capabilities and land disputes with India, INS Dhruv serves as a major force factor for the construction of Indian maritime security as well as the ability to understand their true missile capability when testing an opponent with ballistic missiles.
INS Dhruv has state-of-the-art scanned array radar or AESA developed by DRDO, capable of scanning various spectra to monitor spy satellites in India and to monitor missile tests over the entire region. It enhances the Indian Navy’s ability to monitor the area from the Gulf of Aden to the South China Sea through the Straits of Malacca, Sunda, Lombok, Ombai and Vetar.
INS Dhruv also helps the Indian Navy plan better military operations in three sizes — sub-surface, surface and air — by mapping the Indian Ocean bed. As China shifts to maritime-based military theory with huge investments in long-haul aircraft carriers, warships and submarines, the latest Indian ship to help India is the electronic intelligence-gathering spy agency NTRO. -Time.
