In a major development, the Supersonic Missile-Assisted Release of Torpedo (SMART) system was successfully flight-tested at around 0830 hours from Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Island off the coast of Odisha on Wednesday.

As per official sources, the SMART is a next-generation missile-based lightweight torpedo delivery system.

It has been designed and developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to enhance the anti-submarine warfare capability of the Indian Navy far beyond the conventional range of lightweight torpedo.
