Current Affair 1:


Known as SEBEX 2, this indigenously manufactured explosive has successfully passed certification tests conducted by the Indian Navy.

Developed by Economic Explosives Ltd (EEL) in Nagpur, a subsidiary of Solar Industries under the “Make in India” initiative, SEBEX 2 aims to boost the effectiveness and efficiency of weapons and ammunition.

Experts say that based on high-melting explosives (HMX), SEBEX 2 is touted as one of the world’s most powerful non-nuclear explosives. It offers approximately 2.01 times the lethality of standard TNT.

The certification of SEBEX 2 marks a crucial milestone in its deployment for various military applications, promising to significantly improve the lethality and effectiveness of munitions relying on blast and fragmentation effects.

Additionally, EEL’s SITBEX 1, a thermobaric explosive, and SIMEX 4, a safer storage and handling explosive, have both received certification from the Indian Navy.
