In another step towards Atmanirbhar Bharat, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed a technology to save our naval ships from enemy missile attack, said Ministry of Defence in a statement on Monday.

Recently, Indian Navy conducted trials of all three variants in the Arabian Sea on Indian Naval Ship and found the performance satisfactory.
Chaff is a passive expendable electronic countermeasure technology used worldwide to protect naval ships from enemy’s radar and Radio Frequency (RF) missile seekers. The importance of this development lies in the fact that very less quantity of chaff material deployed in the air acts as decoy to deflect enemy’s missiles for safety of the ships.
