New Delhi: Sudarshan is an Indian laser-guided bomb kit. This comes half a century after the United States developed the first laser guided bomb in 1960s.

Sudarshan was developed by Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE), a DRDO lab with technological support from another DRDO lab Instruments Research and Development Establishment (IRDE) for the Indian Air Force.

Sudarshan was designed for 450 kg (990 pound) bombs. The current version has a range of nine kilometers.



A new version will have glide range extended to 50 kilometers and the flight stability of Sudarshan improved.

Sudarshan was designed to improve accuracy of air-to-ground bombing. It is expected to rival GBU-12 Paveway II in performance.
