Following are excerpts from a report in New Indian Express on this.
The Integrated Test Range (ITR), ‘dream child’ of former President Dr A P J Abdul Kalam, will soon achieve the status of an Air Borne Range (ABR).
This was announced by Dr V K Saraswat, chief controller research and development (R&D), DRDO, on Saturday evening. Saraswat was here to attend the silver jubilee function of ITR.
The status will mean there will be an instrumented station in space. A Floating and Tracking System will be set up in space to track missile systems.
