According to the Defence Ministry, a live aerial target was engaged accurately by the Astra while the mission profile was executed in a text book manner. The missile was tracked using radars, electro-optical tracking sensors and struck its target successfully.

The missile has been developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the premier research and development organisation of the armed forces.
