The technology has been developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

With the successful launch, the organisation has demonstrated capabilities for highly complex technology that will serve as the building block for NextGen Hypersonic vehicles in partnership with industry, DRDO said in a tweet.

DRDO said: "In a historic mission today, India successfully flight tested Hypersonic Technology Demonstrator Vehicle (HSTDV), a giant leap in indigenous defence technologies and significant milestone towards a #sashaktbharat and #atmanirbharbharat."
