The Indian Army has given a go-ahead for the development of Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) by Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in collaboration with private firms.
The 155mm ATAGS (Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System) is designed by the DRDO’s Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) in Pune. The ATAGS is a 155-mm, 52-calibre towed artillery gun being developed in mission mode for the Army’s artillery modernization program, Army Recognition reported today.
In 2015, proof firing tests of the armament systems were carried out during technical trials in June and September and some initial integrated firing tests were successfully carried out in December.
Indian military officials claim that they were on track to have the first fully integrated gun system for user trials by the Army in the first half of 2017.
The Indian government informed Parliament in November that the gun had several significant features such as an all-electric drive, high mobility, quick deployability, auxiliary power mode, advanced communication system, and automated command and control system. It also boasts a range of 45 km, depending on the type of ammunition used. The gun has to go through a rigorous integration and testing cycle before large-scale induction.
Local sources said that by the present sequence, it could tentatively be inducted in the Army between 2022 to 2024.
Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has developed Door Breaching Device that can be used from a distance of 100 metres for rapid entry. Developed by DRDOs Terminal Ballistic Research Laboratory (TBRL), the device is capable of breaching various kinds of doors like thick metal door and thick wooden doors by remote action, TBRLs Chandigarh-based scientist Yogeshwar Nath, who was also part of the developers team was quoted as saying by
Indian DRDOs Research and Innovation Centre has developed micro-devices and micro unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) using high-end Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) for eavesdropping and surveillance along border areas and internal security. “The devices in turn depends on Integrated Circuit Fabrication (ICF) technology
India's Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has considered to produce 10 unmanned aircraft similar to long-endurance combat drone Rustom-II for induction into the Indian armed forces in the future. “We have decided to produce 10 pilot less or unmanned aircraft like Rustom-II, aimed at giving a boost to Indias development programme for UAV,” DRDO Director S Christopher was quoted as saying by
India's Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has fitted its own airborne early warning and control system (AEW & CS) on a modified Embraer ERJ 145 aircraft slated to be inducted into the Indian Air Force in two months. The AEW & CS is basically‘sharp-seeing and listening radar that can look out deep across enemy territory for any incoming threat without itself crossing over
