Antony to honour DRDO lab behind Agni-5 missile

A DRDO laboratory behind the successful design and development of the over 5,000 km‐range Agni‐5 ballistic missile system will be awarded by Defence Minister Mr A K Antony tomorrow for its contributions toward the country’s strategic projects. The Hyderabad‐based Advanced System Limited headed by distinguished scientist Dr V G Sekharan would be given the Performance Award by the Defence Minister for its role in the Agni‐5 missile which was first successfully test fired in April last year, DRDO officials said. The lab is also working towards developing long‐range missiles with capability to carry more payload on them, officials said.
