    1st indigenous Medium Power Radar inducted at Naliya in Gujarat
    PTI | 07:06 PM,Jun 03,2011

    Ahmedabad, Jun 3 (PTI) The first indigenously-made Medium Power Radar (MPR) `Arudhra' was today inducted at Air Force station in Naliya, Kutch, near Pakistan border, at the hands of Air Chief Marshal P V Naik. Developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), `Arudhra' replaces the ageing TRS-2215 and PSM-33 radars, an official release here said. The radar has a state-of-the-art technology, capable of detecting targets at ranges greater than 300 kilometres, and it is an important component in IAF plans to achieve `net centric operations', it said. The radar is being inducted to strengthen air defence capabilities in the Saurashtra-Kutch region, it added. Gujarat coastline has several economically important installations and the new radar will help in extending their security. The IAF fighters conducted a fly-past synchronised with the induction of radar by the Chief of the Air Staff. The Air Force unit in which new radar has been inducted was raised in October 1966 in Jodhpur, and it moved to Naliya in June 1988. At Naliya the unit has played a pivotal role in air defence of Saurashtra-Kutch region.

    Someone wrote that this is a 4D AESA radar. If it's really a 4D AESA, it will be able to find direction, range, height, velocity etc. Can anyone confirm this?

    BTW, congrats DRDO!!

    Here it is....

    This is a 4D AESA radar. Not sure about the range but it might be 300 km. IAF named the MPR 'Arudhra'! 4D means it is capable of finding direction, range, height and velocity. This radar incorporates advanced Active Array technology & Digital Beam Forming. Initially 8 radars will be inducted by the IAF.

    Congrats DRDO and IAF for this marvelous achievement. This is a marvelous shift from old technology to latest one. Lost of advanced radars are on order soon they will replace all the existing radars.

    The radar is quite small. There are many AESA will come now, DRDO developing AESA based WLR replacing PESA Swathi in near future as well as LRTR2 and various other radars for LIC like ground penetrating radar, wall penetrating radar, forest/jungle penetrating radar etc.
