“The indigenously developed surface-to-surface, single-stage missile, powered by solid propellants, was test-fired from a mobile launcher at about 0925 hrs. from launch pad-4 of the Integrated Test Range,” local media quoted defence sources as saying.
Describing the trial as successful, a senior official said it met the mission objectives.
Agni-I was developed by advanced systems laboratory (ASL), the premier missile development laboratory of the DRDO in collaboration with Defence Research Development Laboratory (DRDL) and Research Centre Imarat (RCI) and integrated by Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL), Hyderabad.
The last trial of the Agni-I missile was successfully carried out on November 25, 2010 from the same base.
