据defenseworld网12月20日报道,印度国防研究发展组织12月19日在海得拉巴正式成立高超声速风洞试验设施,该设施为压力真空驱动封闭自由射流设备,喷嘴出口直径1米,可模拟5-12马赫高超声速气流。

该设施的建立,使印度成为继美、俄之后第三个拥有该类规模和能力风动设施的国家,为印度研制高超声速导弹和飞机包括先进中型隐形战机奠定了基础。

该设施为国防研究发展组织与印度工业部门协同合作的结果。印度国防部还展示了两项反无人机技术,该技术具备多种能力,包括压制地面目标和反无人机应用。


India’s DRDO Sets up Hypersonic Wind Tunnel

An advanced Hypersonic Wind Tunnel (HWT) test facility was inaugurated at the Defence Research and Research Organization (DRDO) in Hyderabad on Saturday.

The HWT Test facility is a pressure vacuum driven enclosed free jet facility having nozzle exit diameter of 1 meter and will simulate Mach No 5 to 12 (Mach represents the multiplication factor to the speed of sound).

The facility has the capability to simulate hypersonic flow over a wide spectrum and will play a major role in the realization of highly complex futuristic aerospace and defence systems.

After USA and Russia, India is the third country to have such a large facility in terms of size and operating capability. It is an indigenous development and an outcome of synergistic partnership with Indian industries, a DRDO release said.

The facility underscores DRDO’s plans of developing  hypersonic missiles and aircraft including the advanced medium combat aircraft (AMCA) a stealth aircraft.

Indian defence minister Rajnath Singh who inaugurated the facility was also shown two anti-drone technologies. DRDO Young Scientists’ Laboratory – Asymmetric Technologies (DYSL-AT) and RCI demonstrated drone and innovative anti-drone technologies.

It has multiple capabilities including neutralizing ground targets and anti-drone applications to counter stationery as well as high-speed moving targets. Key features of the weapon system include secure communication link, effective recoil management system, high firing angular resolution and vision-based target detection and tracking.

The foundation stone of Explosive Test Facility for Propellant and Explosive Systems was also laid. This facility will be used for design validation and evaluation of missile sub-systems under different environmental conditions.

The defence minister addressed the DRDO fraternity and applauded the technological achievements and recent series of successful missions.

These include: Hypersonic Technology Demonstration Vehicle (HSTDV), Anti-Radiation Missile (RUDRAM), Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile (QRSAM), Supersonic Missile Assisted Release Torpedo (SMART) and Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) technology during last six months.
