Indigenous Technology Cruise Missile (ITCM)

Current Affairs

  • Recently, India has achieved much-needed success in its indigenous technology cruise missile (ITCM) program by missile test-firing from launchpad No- 3 of Chandipur in the Balasore district.
  • The launch of the missile, which was also fitted with an upgraded radio frequency seeker, comes after a failed test of the weapon in October last year.
  • The test ended in failure as technical snags developed its engine after the missile was fired from the Integrated Test Range.
  • Manik, also called Short Turbofan Engine (STFE), has been developed by the Gas Turbine Research Establishment and is described as a 400-kilogram-force thrust class engine on the DRDO website.
  • It is a generic twin-spool engine without an afterburner.
