 Why in News

  • Radars, jetties, airfield and BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.

  • The Indian Navy’s newest base being established on Minicoy Island in Lakshadweep, INS Jatayu, will have all these and many more

  • The upgrade is part of a long-term capability development plan which officials and experts say will shore up India’s security footprint on the islands located very close to critical Sea Lanes of Communication (SLOC).

  • This is especially significant as Chinese naval footprint, which includes ‘research vessels’, has seen massive expansion in the Indian Ocean

  • BrahMos is a medium-range ramjet supersonic cruise missile jointly developed by the DRDO and the Russian Federation's NPO Mashinostroyeniya.

  • BrahMos is one of the fastest missiles in the world and is considered to be a potent weapon system

  • It is capable of launching from land, sea, and air platforms, making it a versatile missile for the Indian Armed Forces.
