India is planning to test an advanced version of supersonic cruise missile BrahMos at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) in Chandipur, Orissa.
Preparations are underway to test the missile, developed jointly by India and Russia, using a land platform, ITR sources said Wednesday.
With a range of about 300 kilometers, BrahMos can be launched from multiple platforms - land, ships, submarines, aircraft and a ground vehicle.
Defence scientists are also likely to test an advanced version of Trishul, a short-range surface-to-air missile, in January 2005. Trishul can be used by the army, air force and navy.
