India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) plans to establish four new state-of-the-art facilities in and near Hyderabad.
DRDO chief, V.K. Saraswat, told Aviation Week during the Aviation Conclave 2010 here that the facilities will further Hyderbad’s mission to become an Indian aerospace hub. DRDO will provide more than Rs 1,000 crore ($220.1 million) for all the projects over the next five years, Saraswat says.
A facility called O-Range (open range) will be set up in Dundigal outside Hyderabad. It will measure the radio frequency and radar cross-section of small, medium and large missiles, as well as aircraft and electronic warfare systems. All the equipment is in place for this facility, which will become operational in 2011.
