    IAF to induct indigenous radars - The Economic Times


    NEW DELHI: India will on Friday induct an indigenous medium-power radar at the Naliya air base to enhance its air defence capabilities over Gujarat's airspace, an official said on Tuesday.

    The Indian Air Force (IAF) chief, Air Chief Marshal P.V. Naik, will do the honours and induct the 'Arudhra' medium-power radar developed by the Electronics and Radar Development Establishment of the Defence Research and Development Organisation ( DRDO )), the official said.

    The induction would be done on the sidelines of the three-day Gandhinagar-based South Western Air Command (SWAC) commanders' conference beginning Wednesday.

    "This state-of-the-art radar is being inducted towards strengthening the air defence in the Surashtara-Kutch region and forms an important component in the IAF's plan to achieve network-centric operations," the official said.

    With the operationalisation of the Integrated Air Command and Control Systems (IACCS), an automated command and control system of the IAF, the overall air defence of the country would achieve a quantum leap. The Arudhra radar, along with the legacy radars, would all be networked in this system.

    IAF to induct medium-power radars (Lead, superseding previous story) News


    New Delhi, May 31 (IANS) In a bid to strengthen its air defence over Gujarat’s airspace, India will Friday induct Israeli medium-power radars with a range of 300 km at the Naliya air base, an official said Tuesday.

    The Indian Air Force (IAF) chief, Air Chief Marshal P.V. Naik, will do the honours and induct the medium-power radars from Israeli firm Elta Systems, the official said. The IAF has named the new radar Arudhra, the official added.

    The Electronics and Radar Development Establishment of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) too is developing an indigenous medium-power radar with the same name.

    The radars would be inducted on the sidelines of the three-day commanders conference of the Gandhinagar-based South Western Air Command (SWAC) beginning Wednesday.

    ‘This state-of-the-art radar is being inducted for strengthening the air defence in the Surashtara-Kutch region and forms an important component of the IAF’s plans to achieve network-centric operations,’ the official said.

    With the operationalisation of the Integrated Air Command and Control Systems (IACCS), an automated command and control system of the IAF, the overall air defence of the country would achieve a quantum leap. The Arudhra radar, along with the legacy radars, would all be networked in this system.

    Israeli medium-power radar to be commissioned in Gujarat this week

    In keeping with the overall plan to bolster India’s air defence surveillance network, IAF will commission a spanking new Israeli medium-power radar (MPR) at Naliya in Gujarat this week. “This state-of-the-art radar, to be named Arudhra, is being inducted towards strengthening the air defence in the Saurashtra-Kutch region and constitutes an important component in IAF’s plan to achieve network-centric operations,” said an officer.
    IAF chief Air Chief Marshal P V Naik will be inducting the radar, which has a range of over 300 km, at the Naliya airbase on Friday after the commanders’ conference of the South-Western Air Command.
    IAF has already inked contracts for 19 LLTRs (low-level transportable radars), four MPRs and 30 indigenous medium-range Rohini radars, apart from also planning a major induction of long-range surveillance radars (LRSRs) and high-power radars (HPRs) to bolster air defence coverage in “hilly terrain” in the hinterland as well as along the borders with China and Pakistan.
    India is also moving towards procuring nine more Aerostat radars to add to the two EL/M-2083 Israeli Aerostats inducted earlier as well as two additional AWACS (airborne warning and control systems) to supplement the first three Israeli Phalcon AWACS bought under a $1.1-billion deal.
    The overall aim of all this is to ensure that the Indian airspace, which still has several gaping holes, especially over central and peninsular India, becomes impregnable against hostile aircraft, drones and helicopters.
    With advanced “electronic counter-counter measures”, the new radars being inducted will be integrated into the IACCS (integrated air command and control system), the fully-automated network being established to integrate the wide array of military radars with each other as well as with civilian radars.
    IAF, in fact, has plans to establish 10 IACCS nodes to cover virtually the entire country, with quick transfer of data from different radars as well as ground stations of AWACS to one central place.

    IAF Beefs up Network-Centric Operations, Installs New Radars along Gujarat

    [​IMG]

    In order to step up its network-centric operations and strengthen air defence in western India, Indian Air Force (IAF) will be inducting the indigenous Medium Power Radar (MPR) called ‘Arudhra’ at Naliya in Gujarat. The Gujarat coastline has important installations and assets and the new radar will help in extending their security. The induction will take place in the background of the South Western Air Command’s Commanders’ Conference in Gujarat.

    The state-of-the-art radar, Arudhra, is being inducted towards strengthening the air defence in the Saurashtra-Kutch of Gujarat. Air Chief Marshal P.V. Naik, will do the honours and induct the ‘Arudhra’ medium-power radar developed by the Electronics and Radar Development Establishment (LRDE) of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the official said.

    The Arudhra radar is India's first self developed AESA 3D surveillance radar with multifunction capacity in the medium power capability range. It is a major achievement for the LRDE, along with DRDO, to have managed to develop such crucial 3D long range radars on its own. The Arudra radar has a range of 300 kilometers, twice the range of the 3D Rohini radar (150 km). With advanced "electronic counter-counter measures", the new radar being inducted will be integrated into the IACCS (integrated air command and control system). The IACCS is a fully-automated network being established to integrate the wide array of military radars with each other as well as with civilian radars. The IAF has significantly improved its air defence capabilities by acquiring the IACCS and connecting all of its modern as well as legacy radars under one single grid. IAF has plans to establish ten IACCS centres to cover virtually the entire country, with quick transfer of data from different radars as well as ground stations of AWACS to one central place.

    Keeping homeland security as top priority to insulate the country against potential threats from China and Pakistan, IAF has made substantial moves for air-defence coverage and maximum surveillance. Besides the planned induction of long-range surveillance radars (LRSRs) and high-power radars (HPRs), contract have been signed for 19 LLTRs (low-level transportable radars), four MPRs and 30 indigenous medium-range Rohini radars. IAF is also moving towards procuring nine more Aerostat radars to add to the two EL/M-2083 Israeli Aerostats inducted earlier. Also, two additional Israeli airborne warning and control systems (AWACS) will enhance the network-centric operations of the IAF.

    The LRDE Director Mr. Varadarajan indicated that the country had a huge requirement for radars, especially for deployment in inaccessible terrain where security needs are high. These new radars, including the medium power and low-level transportable radar, will be broad-based so that they can be integrated into any weapons system. The radars can be extended and utilized for multiple missions and multiple functions.

    Many reports suggest this radar is indigeneously made by DRDO and LRDE.some article says Israeli made.

    I guess it would be an indigenous design with some Israeli components.

    They have a pulse power of upto 60MW.

    But Arudhra is a Medium Power Radar which means upto 20MW.

    It is made by Israel's ELTA, there seems to be conflicting reports in the media!

    It seems Indian media is getting into the bad habits of its communist neighbour to the North.
