Nagercoil (TN): Steps are being taken to
modify the BrahMos missile to be used both by the Air Force
and Army, Dr Siva Thanu Pillai, Chief Controller (R&D ,
Defence Research and Development Organisation said here today.

Efforts are on to develop the supersonic BrahMos-2
missile, Pillai, also CEO and MD, BrahMos Aerospace, told
reporters.

Steps have been taken to manufacture parts of the missile
from the Army Research Centre at Thiruvanathapuram and the
"first stage" is in progress, he added.

BrahMos missile, a joint venture of India and Russia, was
well received in the international community and some
countries are eager to buy the missile, the DRDO chief

The test of an upgraded BrahMos supersonic cruise missile
failed twice in this year after which the Army refused to
accept the weapon unless proved. The third test, however, in
March hit the bull`s eye.
