"The test of the land version of BrahMos done with a totally indigenous air frame was successful," ITR director MVKV Prasad said.
On the increased accuracy of the missile, Pillai said: "The advanced guidance system integrating multiple navigation satellites, including the Gagan system powered with new software algorithm and developed indigenously by Indian scientists and industries, resulted in pinpoint accuracy of the missile system against hidden land targets in mountain warfare."
The missile, which can carry conventional warhead of 300 kg, was test-fired from a mobile launcher at 10.38am, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) said.
BrahMos, one of the fastest cruise missiles in the world, has a top speed of Mach 2.8 and can be launched from ships, aircrafts and submarines. The Indian Army and Navy have already deployed the ground and sea versions of the missile after successful launches.
