Bangalore India | November 17, 2010 | (Backlog update from Aviation Week to Tarmak007)
A high-tech coastal surveillance system that can detect movement up to 20 km. (12.5 mi.) offshore is ready for installation in India.
The system was indigenously developed by Bharat Electronics Ltd. (BEL) and will be used by the Indian coast guard. The entire data link will be networked to a command-and-control center in New Delhi. The Phase 1 order is worth Rs 600 crore ($132.4 million).
“This will be a path-breaking installation for India’s security,” BEL Director (R&D) I.V. Sarma said Nov. 17 before the Bangalore Defense and Aerospace Journalists Forum. “Civil work is underway to install the radar, electro-optic sensor and command-and-control software.”
