Despite initial reports that claimed otherwise, the Defence Research and Development Organisation's test launch of the Hypersonic Technology Demonstrator Vehicle (HSTDV) from Abdul Kalam Island was not entirely successful. According to a report by The Times of India from late last night, the vehicle failed to achieve the technical parameters laid down for the test on Wednesday. The HSTDV is designed to attain autonomous scramjet-powered flight for 20 seconds and reach Mach 6.5 at an altitude of 32.5 kilometres.
