Reddy said according to Indian simulations, there were no possibilities of hitting the International Space Station with A-SAT debris. The DRDO chief made it clear that there was no move to conduct additional tests of the new A-Sat missile as of now. This type of debris and other similar objects are tracked and a space catalog is maintained by the Combined Space Operations Center at Vandenberg which is actually part of the US Strategic Command. "This test won't breach any worldwide law or treaties", said Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"We do not need any more tests in this orbit now. The interceptor has the capability to hit target at a range of 1,000 km, which covers most of the LEO satellites", he told a press conference at the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Bhawan here.
Reddy said the simulations by the DRDO had shown that the debris from the test will fall back and burn up in the atmosphere within 45 days. He also asserted that the best way of defence is to have deterrence. During the press briefing, DRDO also released a presentation on 'Mission Shakti.' On March 27, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that India had achieved a "historic feat" by shooting down its own low-orbit satellite with a ground-to-space missile, making the country a "space power".
Many satellites, including the International Space Station, operate from much higher orbits.
He informed that amongst the scores of scientists involved in the project, around 35-40 of them were women while also asserting that around 2000 systems and sub-components of the mission were developed by 50 industries around the country.
Speaking on the occasion, Deputy National Security Adviser Pankaj Saran said that India was actively engaged in all relevant worldwide negotiations about the outer space. India has the capacity to hit target up to 1000 km and the test was intentionally held at a lower height. However, the agency did not revealed the number of petitions received by it in the first five days.
