The bomb which was developed by the Hyderabad based research center of Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).
DRDO Director general Avinash Chander congratulated the team which was led by Dr. S. Prasad Rao. “The nation today has the capability to design, develop and launch heavy bombs, for delivery up to 100-km away with high precision,” Mr Chander said.
The smart bombs have an onboard navigation system which allows them to travel on their own and reach their destination precisely. The bomb which was tested yesterday was dropped 100 km away from its target. The distance was navigated by the bomb and the target was hit precisely.
