Abstract : In modern land warfare, munitions are considered as highly effective means of the defence against an invading force, especially armoured fighting vehicles. In recent decades, new technologies have transformed the dumb land munitions, into sophisticated smart munitions that can be used for offensive purposes. The evolution in the munitions technology was marked by the introduction of sensored smart munitions. Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) has achieved a technological breakthrough by developing world class sensor-based influence land munitions Adrushy MK-I and subsequently Adrushy MK-II. Successful development of these smart influence munitions has made India proud and at par with the world market.
