AGNI III : Intermediate Range

Ballistic Missile

By: Gaurav Kumar


MBA II SEM, Enroll No. 009

Introduction
Ballistic Missile: Is a missile that
follows a suborbital path with the
objective of delivering one or more
warheads to a predetermined
target.
Agni-III is an intermediate-range
ballistic missile developed by India
as the successor to Agni-II.
The ballistic missile has a range of
3,500 km- 5500 km

Introduction
The missile is likely to support a
wide range of warhead
configurations
Designed by the Indian
government's Defence Research
and Development Organisation,
Agni III is intended to be a twostage ballistic missile that is
capable of nuclear weapons
delivery.

AGNI - III
India on February 7, 2010 successfully test fired
surface-to-surface intermediate range ballistic missile
(IRBM) Agni-III from the Wheeler Island, in the Bay of
Bengal off the coast of Orissa.
The Agni-III missile tested for the full range, hit the
target with pinpoint accuracy and met all the mission
objectives.
This was the fourth test of the missile. The missile was
first test fired on July 9, 2006, but failed, However, its
second trial on April 12, 2007 and third on May 7,
2008 were successful.
Aim and objective of the fourth trial was to test the
guidance system of the missile.

AGNI - III
It Uses Hybrid navigation including GPS and
INS (Inertial navigation System).
Global Positioning System (GPS) provides
reliable positioning, navigation, and timing
services to worldwide users in all weather,
day and night, anywhere on or near the
Earth which has an unobstructed view of four
or more GPS satellites.
Inertial Navigation System (INS): We have
Computers, Motion Sensors, Rotation
Sensors to Continuously calculate the
position, orientation & velocity of a moving
object without the need of external
reference.

Description

Agni III an intermediate-range ballistic


missile was Designed by the Indian
government's Defence Research and
Development Organisation
Agni III is intended to be a two-stage
ballistic missile that is capable of
nuclear weapons delivery.
The marker pen like Agni-III missile is
17 m long and 2 m in diameter. The
missile is a two-stage solid propellant
system with a payload capability of 1.5
ton.

Description

The sleek missile is equipped with


sophisticated navigation, guidance
and control systems
The Agni-III features two solid fuelled
stages and with overall diameter of
2.0 meters.
The first stage booster is made of
advanced carbon composite materials. It
weighs about 32 tonnes, is 7.7 meters
long and diameter of 2 meter.
The second stage made of maraging
steel weighing about 11 tonnes and a
length of 3.3 meters.

Launch

During the course of flight, the Missile


reached a peak height of 350 km and reentered into the atmosphere successfully
tolerating the skin temperatures of nearly
3000 C.

Features

It can carry a payload of 1.5 tonnes


which is protected by carbon-carbon
all composite heat shield.
It can carry any type of warheads.
The ballistic missile has a range of
3,500 km- 5500 km
It uses Advanced Hybrid navigation
technology including GPS and INS
which gives very accurate calculation
of positioning, orientation & velocity
of a moving object without the need
of external references.

Agni III Missile range

After the launch


India became 7th country in the
world to develop and operate
Intermediate Range ballistic
missile.
Now India has a strategic
advantage against China over
composite dialogues as Agni III
can cover whole of the China in its
range.
