India Plans to Buy this US Air Defence System to Protect New Delhi Soon
Published August 20, 2017 SOURCE: INDIA TODAY



Seeking to provide protection to dignitaries including the President and Prime Minister as well as the national capital territory from enemy cruise missiles, drones and aircraft, India is considering an American system under the Delhi Area Defence project. "The National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (NASAMS) is being considered for the Delhi Area Defence project to provide aerial protection to the Capital from airborne threats," government sources told Mail Today.

The programme is being undertaken as the threat perception from incoming enemy missiles, drones and aircraft is on the rise because of their increasing use by terrorist organisations such as the Lashkar-e-Taiba. US defence officials have made presentations to the Air Force and other agencies concerned and the proposal is under the consideration of the government, the sources said.

The same anti-missile system is used by the Americans to guard their national capital region in Washington DC and has been in deployment there since 2005. The Indian Air Force has been using the Russian-origin missile systems for giving protection to the national Capital and the vital assets and vital points. The NASAMS is claimed by the Americans to be a state-of-the-art air defence system that can maximise the ability of the users to quickly identify, engage and destroy current and evolving enemy aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicle or emerging cruise missile threats.

DELHI, MUMBAI TO GET COVER FROM MISSILES TOO

"It is owned by seven countries and has been integrated into the US National Capital Region's air defence system since 2005. In addition to the US, it is in service in Norway, Finland, Spain and the Netherlands," says the firm which manufactures the missile system for the US government on its website about the air defence system.

Government sources said this programme would be running simultaneously to the indigenous Ballistic Missile Defence shield project under which protection would be provided to key cities such as Delhi and Mumbai from incoming ballistic missiles. Under the DRDO project, the plan is to take down the ballistic missiles coming in from long ranges, up to 2,000 km or more at heights of 30 to 120 kilometres in the air, and the twin-layer system is in advanced stages of development. In the last few years, India has been taking significant steps to improve its air defence capabilities as a number of new mechanisms to take on hostile aerial action have been inducted and many more new systems would be joining in the near future.

India recently started inducting the long-delayed Rs 20,000 crore SPYDER missile systems into the Air Force and some of the systems have already been deployed on the western frontier to thwart any misadventure from the Pakistan side. India has also signed a deal worth Rs 17,000-crore for Medium-Range Surface-to-Air Missile (MRSAM) system with Israel to equip the Army Air Defence Corps to take out enemy planes and drones at ranges of up to 70 kilometres in the air.

The DRDO has also started a programme to develop a Quick-Reaction Surface-to- Air Missile system for the armed forces to bolster the air defence capabilities in both the western and the eastern sector. Indian agencies are considering the NASAMS at a time when defence ties between India and the US are on a high and New Delhi has contracted for military hardware worth over Rs 75,000 crore in the last one decade. The Indian Air Force has acquired various systems from the US including the C-17 Globemaster heavylift aircraft, C-130J Super Hercules Special Operations planes, Apache attack choppers and the Chinook heavylift helicopters in the last seven to eight years. The Navy has also acquired 12 P-8 anti-submarine warfare and surveillance aircraft from the US for looking after its vast maritime zone and replace its Russian Tupolev spy planes.

The need is to have three different systems. One against small craft like drones and para gliders that terrorists can use, the other against enemy aircraft and the third against ballistic missiles.

The security establishment has admitted that terrorists now have new modes of targeting sensitive sites, in view of which, the dynamics of security preparations may have to be changed.

Weapon platforms like the S-400 we're getting from Russia will serve as AD against the latter two. I wonder what we're deploying as countermeasures for the first. ie, micro-light aircraft, hang-gliders, remote-controlled modules, drones etc? This is of immediate concern in the present scenario. I guess these would be the good old MMGs, and AD guns like the ZSU-23-2 for the interim.

Damn, another import! We already have two stage layered defense, third one ... I don't know much. But why the need of US homegrown missile. These systems comes with a potential backdoor by CIA, NIA who know's what. Are we sure to buy such systems from a country who has a history of using spoofing tech and rendering defense equipment useless.

IMHO stick to our systems.

Why not to the Andamans? :rofl:
are you serious?
....................

greater the distance from pakistan or china more will be the time to distroy a incoming missile.......

also , delhi is too close from pakistan border.....
presently pakistsn has the option for sy300 ....in near future , sy400.....

tell me which air defence system can stop 72 missiles fired from one battery , reloaded again in 4 minit time.......each of these missile carries a payload of 250 kg.....

mangalure or kochi are at coast , facing the lakshydeep ...
way to target these cities is by ballastic missiles or by submarine.....
how many missiles a submarine carries ....4 missiles.....even they place 10 submarines , we need to intercept just 40 missiles , even these are nuclear , the material going to fall in sea.....


Or maybe to Dakshin Gangotri Antarctica............ :pound::pound::pound::pound::pound::pound:

Everyone in the decision making process are well taken care of by US arms dealers, that's my guess.

It is The Norwegian Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (abbreviated NASAMS ) not the TheNational Advanced Surface to Air Missile System expect the Desi d o r k media to screw up even this most basic of acronyms

Three layers. Then there are different types of AD missiles needed for defence of VAs (Vulnerable Areas) and VPs (Vulnerable Points).

Should not it be vertical launched system like S 400?

NASAMS is a mediocre system that relies on ground launched variant of AIM-120 AMRAAM. India has no need for such a system when a far more capable system like Barak-8 is being inducted. Even if somehow they want such a system, there is an IAF system is which does the same job, ie SPYDER. Not to mention the upcoming QR-SAM.

You can hand a rifle to Indian media and they will report that magazine goes into the barrel and bullet comes out of buttstock.:frusty:
