Mission Control Centre - Net Centric Operations for Ballistic Missiles

By Syed Akbar
The Mission Control Centre  for the AAD interceptor trial held on 10th February 2012 was deployed in Master-Slave configuration at DRDO Hyderabad and Wheeler Island, Orissa to ensure high availability with built in fault tolerance at each location.
The Mission Control Centre of the Indian BMD programme is one of the most advanced, automated net-centric Command and Control systems in the world.
The Master MCC located more than a thousand kilometer away at Hyderabad from the Missile test range, received the target data in real time from multiple weapon system radars.  The complete Air Situation Picture during the BMD trial was provided to the MCC commander using advanced data fusion and target classification techniques.
After the classification of the target as an enemy Ballistic missile, Mission Control Centre issued engagement orders to the AAD Launch Centre located at Wheeler island in Dhamra.
The complete engagement sequence from target detection to destruction was controlled by Mission Control Centre in  net-centric mode of operation.  The interceptor missile lifted off from Wheeler island destroying the target at an altitude of 15 km.
The AAD Trial has successfully demonstrated complete functionality  in deployment configuration of Mission Control Centre for the Ballistic Missile Defence Programme.
