OIS-Advanced Technology (OIS-AT) announced Tuesday that it has indigenously produced new radar that offers protection to aircraft against the bird hits while another can detect and track unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), IANS reported.
The company further stated that, the two radars would be unveiled at the Aero India 2015 Airshow later this month. The radars are part of the four indigenously developed radar systems. The other two radars are foliage penetration minefield and IED detection system and portable ground surveillance radar system for military and homeland security applications.
"We have worked diligently over the past few years to create our own intellectual property to invest, design develop and manufacture these advanced technology radars," Sanjay Bhandari, founder chairman and managing director of OIS-AT.
"It is with great pride that we are launching these four advanced radar systems for global markets, in essence taking Indian intellectual property and manufactured product to advance our expanded vision of taking Make in India to the world," he added.
The 3D bird detection system works on deterrence option and uses directed bio-acoustics (sound) and an eye safe laser automatically controlled by a radar system.
The UAV detection system can be automatically tuned to latch UAVs on the course of collision which in turn helps the controller to take remedial action, Bhandari said.
"Unlike most air surveillance radars today, it includes a unique sense-and-avoid feature to identify UAVs that may be on a collision course, allowing the controller to take remedial action," he added.
The foliage penetration system can identify people with weapons and other assets from a fixed-wing aircraft or a UAV.
"With product availability slated for year-end, this system can also detect mines and buried improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to help sanitize routes and discover minefields," Bhandari said.
The company, he said, "has used an underlying user-focused design philosophy recognising that different customers have differing needs worldwide. Our four radars are designed to offer 34 configuration options for military and non-military use", he said.
This apart, the company will announce at Aero India (Feb 18-22) its technical collaborations as the OEM for advanced air defense systems for select military program in India.
"These technology collaborations with a number of NATO alliance-based countries will have us bid for the L-70 Successor Air Defense Gun programme (L-70S), of the Indian Army, the Close In Weapons System (CIWS) and the Pechora System Upgrade Air Defence Programmes of the Indian Air Force," Bhandari said. "The manufacture of these proven technology systems in India will advance our vision of the government's Make in India initiative."
