India is now all set to test Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile, also known as SLBM. This is one of the most ambitious projects of state-owned Defense Research and Development Organization.

Per a report, the test will take place soon from an underwater pontoon which will be located at a depth of 20 meters into the sea. Meanwhile, a notice to airmen (NOTAM) has also been issued, which indicates that a test will soon happen. The gearing up for the test is in full phase.

It is not clear which variant will be tested, but it will likely be K series SLBM. Once the trials have been completed, the missiles will be deployed in INS Arihant Submarine.
