    The Indian Air Force would soon move a proposal for a Rs 6,500-crore multi-layered air defence system to thwart any 9/11-style attacks in the national Capital, government sources have told Mail Today.

    As part of the plan, five to six units of the missile network would be deployed at various locations across the Capital, in a bid to provide 360-degree protection from all sides. During the 9/11 attacks, Islamic terrorists hijacked multiple passenger jets in the United States and used them as weapons to hit several important American symbols of power such as the World Trade Center twin towers in New York, Department of Defense headquarters in Pentagon and the Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.


    “A proposal for acquiring the missile defence system from an American firm is expected to be discussed at a high-level meeting of the defence ministry in the next few weeks. If cleared, this will be a government-to-government deal for preventing 9/11-type attacks,” the sources said.

    The air defence system comprises various kinds of missiles for taking down targets at different altitudes and distances, including the Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) and Stinger missiles, which have different capabilities.

    The missile grid would replace the Russian air defence systems that have been in service for several decades and have become obsolete, the sources said.

    The new missiles would be capable of tracking multiple targets at a time and would be integrated with radar systems used by both military and civilian organisations that are used to manage the airspace, said officials.

    “The missile system would be able to automatically identify any rogue aircraft deviating from its designated aerial route or moving towards any other direction and can engage it in a few seconds after warnings are issued to the erring plane,” the sources said.

    This programme would run concurrently 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 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 them have already been deployed on the western frontier to thwart any misadventure from the Pakistani side.

    The SPYDER (Surface-to-air PYthon and DERby) is a low-level, quick reaction missile (LLQRM) to neutralise hostile targets up to 15 km away and at heights between 20 and 9,000 metres. The Python-5 is currently the most capable air-to-air missile (AAM) in Israel’s inventory, while the Derby is an active radar homing AAM that provides the SPYDER missile system with a fire-and-forget option. India has also signed a deal worth Rs 17,000-crore for the 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.

    Coward Modi is afraid of his own life.

    India is not buying any american system. It will be a layered syatem with AAD, PAD and S400 with LRSAM based EX SAM. We have best in class Air defense comparable to best in the world.

    This sounds more like traditional Indian propaganda to fool bhagats

    Mofo chowkidar of India does not realize that the terrorists destroyed the WTC by ramming commercial airliners on it.

    If the same were to happen to Indian parliament, will happen.

    7 nautical miles is the distance between the parliament house and Indra Gandhi airport.

    10 pass can only know so much.
