In an interview with India Today in April 2012, DRDO Chief VK Saraswat said that his organization will develop a Cruise Missile Defense (CMD) system after developing the BMD.
Quizzed about CMD plans, Saraswat said:
"That is a whole new ballgame because it calls for an entirely new set of missiles and radars. My team is presently studying CMD. We are looking at it as a possible next programme after finishing the BMD program."
