Indian Navy To Open Search for Carrier Air Defense System



The Indian Navy has declined, for now, a Russian offer to mount the Kashtan air defense system on India's INS Vikramaditya aircraft carrier, and instead will seek a system through open competition, a Defence Ministry source said.

Originally, the former Admiral Gorshkov was to be mounted with an Indo-Israeli air defense system, the long-range surface-to-air missile system, which has been under development by India's Defence Research and Development Organisation since 2007. But technical problems created uncertainty about whether the system would ever be completed, the MoD source said.

An Indian Navy official said the service has faced problems in the timely supply of spares from Russia for several of "their assets," including submarines, and the lengthy delay in acquiring the carrier drove the decision to decline the Russian offer for Kashtan.

"Better options should be explored for getting weapons for the Russian-built carrier," the official said.

The Vikramaditya will be fitted with 20mm and 30mm guns along with the air defense system, another Navy official said.

The Navy has one operating 50-year-old aircraft carrier, INS Viraat, whose life has been extended to 2017, when the Indigenous Aircraft Carrier joins the service.

There are some National Defense`s product Offers from Both Gov & Pvt Sector ..

====================>>>>


PIPAVAV Shipyard`s Oerlikon Millennium 35mm Naval Gun System Offered
-------------------------

Oerlikon Millennium 35mm Naval Gun



The Oerlikon Millennium 35mm Naval Gun System is a Close-in weapon system designed by Oerlikon (a Rheinmetall subsidiary) for mounting on ships. It is based on the new Oerlikon 35 mm revolver cannon land based Air defense system, and uses AHEAD ammunition. A device at the muzzle end of the barrel measures the exact speed of each round as it is fired, and automatically sets the fuse to detonate the round as it approaches a pre-set distance from the target. Each round disperses 152 small projectiles to strike the incoming target. Whilst these are too small to do major damage in themselves, the accumulation of damage from multiple strikes is expected to destroy wings and control surfaces, sensors and aerodynamics, causing the target to crash. Other firing modes are designed to be effective against surface targets such as small fast attack boats.

The Millennium gun is easy to install as it requires no through deck penetration and needs no supply of coolant, air or ship's power to operate. However, it does need a power supply to recharge its batteries. Installation can take as little as sixty minutes and requires only six square metres of deck space. A Millennium gun and 252 rounds weighs 3,200 kg. The gun's cupola is claimed to have a low radar cross section.

The weapon is designed to be controlled by an external fire-control system using either radar or electro-optical trackers. It is fitted with an optional onboard observation TV camera which relays imagery to an operator console from which it can also be aimed and fired in an emergency mode. The computer system uses an open architecture and is claimed to be compatible with many existing fire control systems.

Shell : 35 x 228 mm
Action : Gas-operated revolver cannon
Rate of fire: 1000 rounds per minute
Effective firing range : 3500m (3830 yd)
Feed system : 252 link-less rounds on turret

There are issues with Israeli`s regarding Tot, Barak 8 will be ready for India under DRDO but it will be late ..

In the mean time, I think they will be outsourcing foreign under license manufacture by Pvt sector ..
