About the Advanced Chaff Technology:

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 a very less quantity of chaff material deployed in the air acts as a decoy to deflect the enemy’s missiles for the safety of the ships.

Defence Laboratory Jodhpur, a DRDO laboratory, has indigenously developed three variants of this critical technology:

  • Short Range Chaff Rocket,
  • Medium-Range Chaff Rocket and
  • Long Range Chaff Rocket.

Important takeaways for all competitive exams:

  • Chairman DRDO: Dr G Satheesh Reddy.
  • DRDO Headquarters: New Delhi.
  • DRDO Established: 1958.
