    New Indian radar offers aircraft protection against bird hits

    A new Indian radar - a global first - offers protection against the menace of aircraft bird hits while another can detect and track unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the company that developed them said Tuesday. The company is eyeing domestic and international markets.


    The two radars, among the four indigenously developed, are to be unveiled at the Aero India 2015 exposition at Bengaluru later this month, Sanjay Bhandari, founder chairman and managing director of OIS-Advanced Technology (OIS-AT), told reporters here.

    The other two radars are a foliage penetration minefield and IED detection system, and a portable ground surveillance radar system for military and homeland security applications.

    "We have worked diligently over the past few years to create our own intellectual property to invest, design develop and manufacture these advanced technology radars," Bhandari said.

    "It is with great pride that we are launching these four advanced radar systems for global markets, in essence taking Indian intellectual property and manufactured product to advance our expanded vision of taking Make in India to the world," he added.

    Giving details, he said the 3D bird detection system has an impressive deterrence option, using directed bio-acoustics (sound) and an eye-safe laser, both of which are automatically controlled by the radar system.

    The UAV detection system, Bhandari said, can, at the click of a mouse, be automatically tuned for latching onto the drones or even high-speed fighter aircraft and helicopters.

    "Unlike most air surveillance radars today, it includes a unique sense-and-avoid feature to identify UAVs that may be on a collision course, allowing the controller to take remedial action," he added.

    The foliage penetration system can identify people with weapons and other assets from a fixed-wing aircraft or a UAV.

    "With product availability slated for year-end, this system can also detect mines and buried improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to help sanitise routes and discover minefields," Bhandari said.

    The company, he said, "has used an underlying user-focused design philosophy recognising that different customers have differing needs woldwide. Our four radars are designed to offer 34 configuration options for military and non-military use", he said.

    This apart, the company will announce at Aero India (Feb 18-22) its technical collaborations as the OEM for advanced air defence systems for select military programmes in India.

    "These technology collaborations with a number of NATO alliance-based countries will have us bid for the L-70 Successor Air Defence Gun programme (L-70S), of the Indian Army, the Close In Weapons System (CIWS) and the Pechora System Upgrade Air Defence Programmes of the Indian Air Force," Bhandari said. "The manufacture of these proven yrvhnology systems in India will advance our vision of the government's Make in India initiative."

    Good show.

    Hope this is tried out and if meeting the requirement should be introduced.

    Will be a fillip to the 'Make in India' programme.

    There is a need to find out wether they developed it themselves or are marketing it for a foreign firm .

    NO its a front for a british firm.

    NOTE: COPIED FROM BR:


    Yeah woo hoo Indian pvt. company rocks !!! This is exactly what BRF has been saying for years that given a chance Indian pvt. sector will chew DRDO and PSU's for breakfast and shit them out by night. Wonderful development no !!!!

    WRONG behen*#@$% !!! Please follow the rest of the post carefully now.

    At first it struck me that a company which wasn't heard till now has suddenly come up with a world beating radar (regarding the bird tracking one) which even the western countries who are at a totally different technological plane w.r.t. us don't have !!! A company which has escaped even the sharp eyes of BRF (okay a few posters who track such shit). So I started digging, let's have a dekkho at the company "OIS Advanced Technology".

    For starters the term OIS stands for "Offset India Solutions". Hmm, a company which poses as an OEM has "Offset" in it's name !!! In the company's site under the Partners section we have

    Quote:
    Offset India Solutions is engaged in providing advisory and project management services to the OEMs in respect of their offset obligations. It conceives, designs, guides, shapes and delivers offset related projects and solutions. It has a team of domain experts from the armed forces, industry and policy makers including skilled projet managers.


    In short OIS aims for nothing but playing second fiddle to western OEM's. Also note the "team of domain experts" has no mention of anything remotely associated with engineering strength which would have shown the strong design credentials it indirectly claims it has. So the next logical thing that comes to mind is

    Where the FAQ did this company come from ???

    OIS ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY PRIVATE LIMITED

    “Under the partnership, we intend to market and sell Magnaghi Aeronautica’s Sky Arrow ultra-light high-wing aircraft in the Indian market,” Sareen said, adding that a strategic alliance with Gemilli, also from Italy, was in place, for introducing the latter’s noise-control and self-protecting technologies in India.


    Second and the most important "partner" MicroMet-ATI

    Quote:
    Micromet Ati India Private Limited is a Private Company incorporated on 15 November 2010. It is classified as Indian Non-Government Company and is registered at Registrar of Companies, Delhi. Its authorized share capital is Rs. 1,000,000 and its paid up capital is Rs. 750,000.

    Current status of Micromet Ati India Private Limited is - Active.


    The MicroMet-ATI site also has a huge product gallery obviously showing their strength in developing military hardware through decades of research (even though the bloody company came into existence on 15 November 2010 onlee !!!).

    So these two India companies were formed within the timespan of six-seven months. Shri Sanjay Bhandari is director of both of these companies, the Bhandari miya biwi being the directors of OIS AT.

    This Indian company has such strong R&D base spanning over decades that it is giving technological support to another Indian company which itself has decades worth of radar R&D in it's kitty or something like that. Beautiful no !!! (Phun Game: Spot the difference between the product range of Micromet and Micromet ATI. Winning Priejj: Dinner date at Kerela backwaters with Saint Anthony)

    AGAIN WRONG behen*#@$% !!!

    Let's now delve into the genesis of Micromet

    Quote:

    Ahh so a britshit company is behind all the "technological superiority" behind the Indian companies. Wait what is this innocent thing on the company's website hain ji ??? Holy shit this can't be true !!! An Indian system developed through decades of R&D by Indian designers is stolen by britshits and being claimed as their own !!!

    Quote:
    Bird Hits and risks posed by Bird –Aircraft collisions are all too well known to aviators. Avian related accidents cause billions of dollars of losses every year in addition to the tragic loss of life as a result of such accidents. It is estimated that hundreds of lives have been lost over the years as a result of accidents caused due to birds striking civilian and military aircrafts. Radars have been successfully used to detect Avian activity over the years. MicroMet offers a full range of radar based solutions for bird-aircraft collision avoidance, aircraft tracking, and site security & intrusion detection. MicroMet's systems enable the user to:
    • Detect
    • Deter
    • Monitor

    Birds in and around Airports and other sites where the presence of birds can be dangerous. MicroMet’s Avian Detection and Deterrence systems can be used at Airports, space installations, wind farms, military bombing sites, and for bird migratory studies. A truly valuable tool in the fight against risks posed by birds to human activity.

    BASHRADâ„¢ - the MicroMet bird-aircraft strike hazard avoidance radar system is perhaps the most advanced technology available for Bird-Aircraft Strike Hazard (BASH) management, detection and tracking of hazardous bird activity at various sites including civilian and military airports, wind farms, and for environmental and bird migratory surveys. Developed by Radar specialists with decades of Radar experience the MicroMet BASHRADâ„¢ Bird-Aircraft Collision Avoidance Radar systems include highly reliable, advanced and proven radar technologies. When used in combination with the proven Bird Deterrence technologies and systems, BASHRADâ„¢ offers a comprehensive solution to the problems related to Avian activities.


    If you go to the OIS-AT site and read carefully about their "Bird Detection Radar" you will see that the description is very much influenced by the BASHRAD system. Yeah the term 3D doesn't figure in the BASHRAD system but they claim it to be the most advanced technology available for this class of radar. Whose claims do you want to believe ??? That of the Indian front company or the parent one providing all the technical know how ???

    Still believe that an Indian company which came into existence just a few years ago came up with the most advanced bird avoidance/detection/tracking/deterring radar ??? Take a look at the system being offered by OIS AT

    Image

    Take a look at the antenna in the above pic and spot the difference between it and the one offered by the britshit parent company (scroll down, extreme right) and also

    Quote:
    BASHRADâ„¢ is available in mobile and fixed configurations to suit all applications. The mobile models are mounted on trailers with all the associated computer equipment installed in the environment controlled trailer cabin.


    Regarding other claims of the Indian company you are free to roam in the products section of the parent Micromet company and find for yourself about "indigenous" Indian radars. Don't forget to check A PROPOSED ADVANCED DOPPLER WEATHER RADAR NETWORK FOR INDIA to see advanced "indigenous" solutions being proposed by our hard working pvt. firms.

    Almost forgot about AVAANA, their site is under maintenance so alas my fellow BRFites won't get the privilege to see more "indigenous" systems but don't worry the site will be back soon and then you can feast your eyes on "Indian developed systems".

    Conclusion: The hierarchy here is Micromet Group > Micromet ATI > OIS AT, basically an Indian front for pedalling britshit tech. It will be very interesting to find out how OIS AT owns the IP of the systems it claims to have developed in a span of 4 decades yrs. If it's too good to be true it ain't !!! There are pvt. companies who are working hard to develop indigenous solutions even after taking losses in doing the same but this fraud OIS AT ain't one of them.

    If anyone still believes that OIS AT has developed these systems then please look forward to me flying down AMCA SP1 in AI-15.

    To be fair there are cases of PSUs buying equipment from abroad and passing it off as something they manufactured .
