India on April 26 test-fired a multi-target missile on its eastern coast, defense ministry officials said.
The Trishul (Trident) missile was fired at 1 p.m. from the testing site in Chandipur, 200 kilometers (125 miles) northeast of the Orissa state capital Bhubaneswar, the officials said.
An official said the test, the ninth since 2003, was successful.
The surface-to-air missile is powered by solid fuel and can target aircraft and counter sea-skimming missiles.
It is one of five developed by India since 1983 and can deliver a 15-kilogramme (33-pound) warhead up to 15 kilometers (7.5 miles) away.
India last tested a missile in February while rival Pakistan conducted a test of a short-range, nuclear-capable missile on March 31.
The nuclear-armed neighbors routinely conduct missile tests despite a formal peace process begun in January 2004 to end their longstanding dispute over the Himalayan region of Kashmir, trigger of two of their three wars.
