DRDO Develops Stealthy Under Water Mines for Indian Navy

The Naval Scientific Technological Laboratory (NSTL) here, a wing of Defence Research Development Organisation, has developed a deadly device called underwater mine which will do the job.

Evolved by indigenous technology at the NSTL, the underwater mine will join the Indian arsenal shortly to bolster Indian Navy's weapon shop.

Testing and rating of the device has been completed successfully and the weapon and the project will be handed over to the Indian Navy.

The device which will be planted underwater, can destroy enemy objects including sub-marines, war ships and even small boats which may come within a particular radius of the location of the device.

The NSTL has completed the requisite administrative formalities before the device is released officially. NSTL which has planned to hand over underwater mine in the first week of July put it off due to some technical reasons.

A senior official told this website's newspaper that their project has been completed successfully but declined to divulge the cost of the project. Normally, the cost of research and development of this type of weapons is no constraint, but NSTL executed the project within the stipulated budget, the official revealed.

This is the first of its kind device. It will add a feather to Indian Navy├»¿½s cap, particularly in view of future challenges it might encounter, a senior scientist claimed with pride.

With regard to the success of the underwater mine venture, the naval sources expressed their delight and said it would be a real push to the Indian Navy: We are also eagerly waiting for the day to induct the device into the Navy's arsenal.
