    In keeping with the overall plan to bolster India’s air defence surveillance network, IAF will commission a spanking new Israeli medium-power radar (MPR) at Naliya in Gujarat this week. “This state-of-the-art radar, to be named Arudhra, is being inducted towards strengthening the air defence in the Saurashtra-Kutch region and constitutes an important component in IAF’s plan to achieve network-centric operations,” said an officer.

    IAF chief Air Chief Marshal P V Naik will be inducting the radar, which has a range of over 300 km, at the Naliya airbase on Friday after the commanders’ conference of the South-Western Air Command.

    IAF has already inked contracts for 19 LLTRs (low-level transportable radars), four MPRs and 30 indigenous medium-range Rohini radars, apart from also planning a major induction of long-range surveillance radars (LRSRs) and high-power radars (HPRs) to bolster air defence coverage in “hilly terrain” in the hinterland as well as along the borders with China and Pakistan.

    India is also moving towards procuring nine more Aerostat radars to add to the two EL/M-2083 Israeli Aerostats inducted earlier as well as two additional AWACS (airborne warning and control systems) to supplement the first three Israeli Phalcon AWACS bought under a $1.1-billion deal.

    The overall aim of all this is to ensure that the Indian airspace, which still has several gaping holes, especially over central and peninsular India, becomes impregnable against hostile aircraft, drones and helicopters.

    With advanced “electronic counter-counter measures”, the new radars being inducted will be integrated into the IACCS (integrated air command and control system), the fully-automated network being established to integrate the wide array of military radars with each other as well as with civilian radars.

    IAF, in fact, has plans to establish 10 IACCS nodes to cover virtually the entire country, with quick transfer of data from different radars as well as ground stations of AWACS to one central place.

    coflicting news :
    http://www.defence.pk/forums/india-defence/111666-iaf-induct-indigenous-radars.html

    "NEW DELHI: India will on Friday induct an indigenous medium-power radar at the Naliya air base to enhance its air defence capabilities over Gujarat's airspace, an official said on Tuesday.

    The Indian Air Force (IAF) chief, Air Chief Marshal P.V. Naik, will do the honours and induct the 'Arudhra' medium-power radar developed by the Electronics and Radar Development Establishment of the Defence Research and Development Organisation ( DRDO )), the official said."

    Really conflicting news. There are two types of MPR IAF getting. One developed by DRDO and another one from Israel. Let us wait till tomorrow for confirmation which one is this.

    its developed by DRDO. The project was sanctioned in November 2008 to
    develop a ground based rotating active array radar for IAF with 300 km range.

    This 4D is possibly the Israel... i really doubt DRDO can deliver such sophisticated one ... If delivered it would have been in news like a monster on all channels

    Ofcourse but there are two types of MPR.


    Really? Where did you learn that this is 4D radar?

    Your doubt does not make any sense. You need to learn more before creating doubt. Its already on the news channels, what do you want more!!!
