Previously, in May 2022, this Naval Anti-Ship Missile Short Range (NASM-SR) underwent its inaugural test, fired from a Seaking helicopter of the Indian Navy at the integrated test range (ITR) at Chandipur off the Odisha coast.

The missile integrates various advanced technologies, featuring an indigenous launcher for the helicopter and a guidance system comprising cutting-edge navigation and integrated avionics.

Moreover, the Indian Navy announced in October its preparations for the inaugural trial of a new Long Range Anti-Ship Missile, developed by DRDO, with a range of 500 km—surpassing that of the BrahMos missile.

BrahMos, an Indo-Russian cruise missile, originally possessed a range of 290 km but now boasts an extended range of 350 to 400 km.

In March of this year, the Indian Navy effectively carried out a firing of the MRSAM (Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile) from INS Visakhapatnam, confirming its ability to intercept 'Anti Ship Missiles'.

The Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile was a collaborative effort between the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and the Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI), manufactured at Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL).
