    India operates a fairly large and sophisticated fleet of research vessels. A couple are on Indian Navy rolls, while the majority belonging to NIO or NIOT.

    Will post pics as I find them.

    ORV Sagar Manjusha

    Used to track RLV-TD flight. Surely can be used to spy on enemy ballistic missile tests as well?

    The Indian Coast Guard ship ‘Arush’, the 17th in the series of 20 fast patrol vessels designed and built by Cochin Shipyard Ltd., was commissioned here on Thursday.

    The ship was commissioned by the Coast Guard Commander (western seaboard) Additional Director General SPS Basra in the presence of the Commander Coast Guard Region (West) Inspector General K. Natarajan and other senior dignitaries of the central and state governments.

    According to the Navy, the 50-metre indigenous FPV has a displacement of 421 tonnes and can achieve a maximum speed of 33 knots with an endurance of 1,500 nautical miles at an economical speed of 13 knots. “It is equipped with state-of-the-art weaponry and advanced communication and navigational equipment which make it an ideal platform for undertaking multifarious close-coast missions such as surveillance, search and rescue and medical evacuation,” a Navy release said.

    The special features include an integrated bridge management system and integrated machinery control system, it said.

    The ship has been named ICGS ‘Arush’, meaning “first ray of sun”, and will be based at Porbandar under the administrative and operational control of the Commander, Coast Guard Region (NW). “The ship is commanded by Commandant Pramod Pokhriyal and has a complement of four officers and 33 enrolled personnel,” it said.PTI.

    Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday inaugurated a submarine assembly workshop in Mazagaon. During the occasion, the Defence Minister Parrikar said, "The P75 project might go through strategic partner route."

    Earlier in 2014, when Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was holding the portfolio of Defence Minister, had reviewed the progress of the workshop. Jaitley was then accompanied by Chief of Naval Staff Admiral R.K. Dhowan during his visit to the Mazagon Docks Ltd when the Project 75 to construct six state-of-the-art submarines was underway in collaboration with M/s. DCNS, France.

    Considered as a crucial project for the country and the Indian Navy, the project will give a massive fillip to India's indigenous submarine construction capability.

    Wasn't there some sort of tender to build some sort of research ship for DRDO?

    I believe Russians were building this ship for DRDO.

    This financial year, CSL has delivered seven Fast Patrol Vessels to the Indian Coast Guard and a Buoy Tender Vessel to the Department of Lighthouses and Lightships. The construction of an indigenous aircraft carrier, the largest warship being built in the country, is progressing at the shipyard. The yard is also constructing a barge for NPCC, Abu Dhabi; a Technical Demonstration Vessel for DRDO and two Ro-Ro vessels for the Kochi Corporation.

    Sagar Nidhi has been called in for An-32 SAR.

    http://www.dnaindia.com/india/repor...d-out-to-be-bad-says-manohar-parrikar-2238255

    ....

    He said that a state of art ice-class research vessel, Sagar Nidhi, of the National Institute of Ocean Technology has been called for from Mauritius.

    "That will reach but any deep vessel to operate, it will need specific area.

    "Because deep vessels which go inside cannot go and search per se unless you have some definite small area. So last time (Doriner crash), submarine had identified the location and then we had send it (deep sea vessel of Reliance). It is a secondary operation after initial identification," Parrikar said.

    Sagar Nidhi comes with Dynamic Positioning System which keeps its position stable, which is required for oceanographic research.

    It has a huge deck area for deploying ROV/Manned submersibles/ Tsunami monitoring system.

    Gondola arrangement is also made for precision acoustic measurements. Drop Keel facility is made to fit any underwater transducers without dry docking the vessel.

    One separate lab is designed and installed with integrated survey systems with modern scientific survey equipments like single and multi beam echo sounder for shallow and deep waters, sub bottom profiler, acoustic current profiler.

    The mega block assembly of the hull blocks of Ship No. 20, the Technology Demonstration Vessel (TDV) being built for the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), has begun at the Cochin Shipyard, marking a major milestone in the construction of the ship.

    S. Christopher, Chairman of DRDO, launched the assembly. The vessel, with a length of 118.4 metres, width of 20 metres, draft of 7.1 metres, and having a steel weight of approximately 3,900 tonnes, was contracted in August 2015.

    The vessel will have a rare capability to track the full flight of future long-range naval missile systems. The contract for the construction of the vessel worth Rs.365 crore was signed between the yard and the end-user in August 2015.

    The ship would have an array of secret sensors and radars with undisclosed capability to track flight of long-range missiles during test-firing and probably more.

    “The DRDO and the Navy are in the forefront of indigenisation of maritime systems and several new naval missiles of varying range are being developed at the moment. Equipped with sensors, the ship will be deployed at sea to track the full flight path of longer range missiles that are under development,” said a top official.

    Just as the DRDO is jointly developing the long-range surface-to-air missile (LR-SAM), also called Barak 8, with the Israel Aerospace Industries, naval weapons development in India is set for a huge leap with the ‘K’ series of submarine-launched missiles such as K-15 and K-4.

    To be fitted on board the Arihant-class of submarines, the K-15, a.k.a B-05, missile is said to have a range of over 720 km while the bigger K-4s will have an operational range of 3,500 km. Missiles with longer ranges are also being talked about, pointed out a source.
