The Advanced Air Defense (AAD) is an anti-ballistic missile system designed to intercept incoming ballistic missiles in the endo-atmosphere at an altitude of 40 km. The TEL (Transporter Erector Launcher) vehicle is based on a Tatra truck chassis with three launcher container units each carrying one missile. In firing position, the containers are erected in a vertical position at the rear of the truck to launch the missile.


The AAD is a single-stage solid rocket-propelled guided missile able to intercept aerial threats at a maximum range of 40 km. The missile has a length of 7.5 m, a diameter less than 0.5 m, and a weight of around 1.2 tons.


In March 2017, Indian DRDO conducted the successful launch of the interceptor missile Advanced Area Defense (AAD) at 1015 hrs today from Abdul KalamIsland, Odisha. The endo-atmospheric missile, capable of intercepting incoming targets at an altitude of 15 to 25 km successfully destroyed the incoming missile. All the mission objectives were successfully met.


On August 2, 2018, the Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO), the Indian Ministry of Defense’s (MoD) research and development wing, conducted another successful test of its indigenously designed and built AAD Advanced Air Defense interceptor missile from Abdul Kalam Island, home to the Indian military’s principle missile test facility, the Integrated Test Range, off the coast of Odisha in the Bay of Bengal.
