BrahMos to be upgraded to ‘hypersonic’ in a decade


Welcome to Defence Update and you are watching
important developments happening around India. BrahMos to be upgraded to ‘hypersonic’ in
a decade The speeds of the BrahMos missile will be
upgraded to hypersonic with superior destructive capabilities in a phased manner within a decade,
a top official said on Tuesday. “Presently, the BrahMos has a speed of 2.8 Mach. In two
years time it would be increased to 3.5 Mach, and by five years, it would be 5 Mach, thereafter,
it would go to hypersonic mode 7-8 Mach, it is likely to take another seven to ten years
as the missile would graduate from ramjet to scramjet engine, and considering other
complex issues of aerodynamic heating, combustion, vibrations etc, the hypersonic BrahMos missiles
would change the scenario as it would have immense destructive power besides increased
speed,” said BrahMos Aerospace Pvt. Ltd. (BAPL) Managing Director & CEO Sudhir Kumar Mishra
at a function to mark Godrej Aerospace Limited’s handing over of the 100th set of airframe
assemblies to BAPL, and bagging another order to produce 100 more units of airframes of
the Air Launched version of the missile and launch of its production. To a question whether
India was considering exports of BrahMos to friendly nations, he said there is a set of
users (Indian armed forces) with which the company is working, but the issue of exports
would be decided at the government levels. Thanks for watching Defence Update. Please
