India developing deep penetration radar to track ultras
Bangalore: India is developing a deep
penetration radar to locate objects hidden under foliage up to
30 km which could come in handy while dealing with low
intensity conflicts and tracking insurgents.
The proposed airborne radar would have the ability to
locate hidden objects under foliage about 20 km to 30 km, a
top defence research official said today.
"It can locate any vehicle, a group of men hiding, any
bunker (hidden under forest cover)," Director of Electronics
and Radar Development Establishment (LRDE), a DRDO (Defence
Research and Development Organisation) lab, S Varadarajan,
told PTI here.
"It can penetrate foliage and detect," he said.
It would take 2-3 years to develop the radar. We will
"quick-start" the project as "requirement is urgent", LRDE,
which already has core technology, would like to forge a
collaboration, Varadarajan said.
He also said the Army is in the final stage of accepting
for induction the weapon locating radar (WLR) developed by the
The radars are meant for use on the borders, officials
