India For Boost-phase Missile Interception

India is currently working upon a series of such weapons to improve its antiballistic missile (ABM) capability. The Laser Science and Technology Centre (LASTEC), a laboratory under the DRDO, is working on a laser weapon (one among the DEWs pack) that could fire a beam with a potency of 25 kilowatts to intercept and destroy an incoming ballistic missile in its terminal phase within a range of seven kilometres. Work is also in progress for a 100 kilowatt solidstate laser system to eliminate missiles that are in their boost phase.
