    IAF to induct indigenous radars -Airlines / Aviation-Transportation-News By Industry-News-The Economic Times on Mobile

    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.
