    The Tribune, Chandigarh, India - Nation
    Chandigarh, December 23
    To boost its air defence set-up and enhance situational awareness capabilities, the IAF is going infor the induction of a "passivesurveillance and electronic intelligence system" (PSEIS). The PSEIS will supplement the conventional radar coverage.
    The system will generate a three-dimensional "air-situation picture" by providinglocation and tracking of airborne, ground and marine targets, regardless of whether these emit radiations or not, a request for information issued by the IAF a few days ago states.
    The system would be capable of detection, location, identification and tracking of active and passive targets within its area of coverage. It would comprise of a cluster of sensor stations all reporting their detections simultaneously to the master receiving and processing centre that will process information for detection of targets and formation of tracks.
    Typically, one system would comprise three to six sensor stations each (situated aroundby 20-35 km away) linked to one master control station. It would be possible to network many such systems deployed in a particular sector to generate an overall picture ofthe sector at a single master station.
    The PSEIS, though ground-based, would be fully mobile and have a short set-up time.The passive surveillance module would generate a comprehensive air-situation picture through reception and processing of reflections of other transmissions in the radio frequency spectrum, while the electronic intelligencemodule would intercept, process, analyse and report all types of radar transmissions.

    IAF’s Delhi-based Communication Squadron, which has just got the first lot of three VIP role helicopters, already has fourEmbraer 135s. The newer aircraft, being acquired from Brazil, will have some security features similar to those in the three Boeing Business Jets (BBJs) acquired in 2009 but not the same ones.
    Chief of the Air Staff Air ChiefMarshal NAK Browne told India Strategic in an interview recently that the duties of IAF’s VIP unit, designated Air HeadquartersCommunication Squadron, had increased manifold and that the case to acquire the Embraers was now being processed.

    Jagdalpur, Chhattisgarh: An injured radio operator leftbehind by an Indian Air Force (IAF) crew after their helicopter crash-landed underNaxal fire in Chhattisgarh yesterday is in critical condition in hospital.
    The radio operator, Head Constable M R Sahu of the Chhattisgarh police, was rescued by commandos of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) from jungles in Bastar yesterday evening. He was flown out of Chintagufa on the Chhattisgarh-Andhra Pradesh border this morning and admitted to a hospital in Jagdalpur.
    Another Chhattisgarh policeman injured in a gunbattle with Naxals yesterday afternoon has also been brought to the same hospital. He is one the policemen that the IAF helicopter had set out to rescue when it was shot downby Naxals in Timilwara.
    Some 150 commandos are guarding the damaged M-17 helicopter in Bastar. IAF engineers are on way to the area. The helicopter's hydraulic systems and generators are learnt to havebeen damaged.
    A Chhattisgarh police spokesperson said the IAF crew will be spoken to and thecircumstances under which they left the radio operator and the helicopter behind found out.
    In an inexplicable decision, thesix IAF crew members had yesterday left the radio operator in the grounded helicopter and gone looking for help. The helicopter had two light machine guns with about 100 rounds of ammunition and other personalweapons.
    "We are unable to understandwhy the captain and the crew decided to leave behind an injured man and the helicopter," a senior Home Ministry official told NDTV yesterday.
    An IAF spokesperson has maintained that the crew's first task was to seek supportto secure the helicopter and get medical attention for the radio operator.
    The pilot too has told Chhattisgarh officials that his primary duty was to save the remaining crew members.

    Around a year ago also, they did the same thing. Something wrong with Training?

    India mulls huge increase in Rafale order, may buy up to 189 fighter jets

    PARIS: India could buy up to 189 of the Rafale fighter jets currently being used by France to bomb Islamist militants in Mali, sources close to negotiations on the multi-billion dollar deal have told AFP.

    The possibility of an additional 63 jets being added to an expected order for 126 was raised during a visit by India's foreign minister Salman Khurshid to Paris last week, they said.


    "There is an option for procurement of an additional 63 aircrafts subsequently for which a separate contract would need to be signed," a source said.

    "Presently the contract under negotiation is for 126 aircraft but we are talking about the follow-up."

    India's contemplation of a much bigger than anticipated extension of its airpower will inevitably cause concern in neighbouring Pakistan given the permanently simmering tensions between the two countries.

    The Indian press has estimated the value of the deal for 126 Rafales at $12 billion (nine billion euros).

    A 50 per cent increase in the number of planes ordered would take it to around $18 billion, in a huge boost for the struggling French defence industry, although much of the economic benefit will be shared with India.

    New Delhi selected France's Dassault Aviation as its preferred candidate to equip the Indian Air Force with new fighter jets in January 2012.

    Under the deal on the table, the first 18 Rafales will be built in France but the next 108 will be assembled in India by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd in Bangalore.

    "The first aircraft will be delivered three years after signature of the contract," the source added.

    An industry expert said the time lag reflected India's request for two-seater jets rather than the one-seater model that Dassault currently produces.

    India has insisted that the deal involves significant technology transfer and that Indian suppliers secure work equivalent to around half of the value of the contract.

    "The negociations for off-sets are progressing well," the source added.

    The conclusion of the deal has been repeatedly delayed, with India having initially set a target of the end of last year, which slipped to March 31, 2013, the end of the current fiscal year.

    French defence sources said last week that was unlikely to be met but voiced confidence it would finally be done, a stance echoed by Khurshid on his visit to Paris.

    "We know good French wine takes time to mature and so do good contracts," Khurshid said after a meeting with French foreign minister Laurent Fabius.


    The contract details are being worked out. A decision has already been taken, just wait a little for the cork to pop and you'll have some good wine to taste."

    Dassault and the French government are hoping that India's decision will have a positive influence on other potential buyers of the Rafale, who include Brazil, which is in the market for 36 planes, Canada, Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates.

    The Rafale was used in a combat situation for the first time during the French-led Nato campaign which deposed Libyan dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011 and they have been active in Mali since the weekend.
