India Wants New Threat Detection Radar on China Border

The Indian Army plans to acquire a modern lightweight low-level radar to strengthen its threat detection capabilities along the country’s border with China.

A potential part of the “Make in India” project, the new equipment would help Indian armed forces detect and identify enemy aircraft in areas where surveillance is restricted because of mountainous terrain. India’s Line of Actual Control includes terrain that provides easy entry for enemy helicopters and drones flying at low altitudes.

The army said it would procure a 3D active electronically scanned array radar with a maximum range of 50 kilometers (31 miles). The device, included on a list of weapons and systems that cannot be imported, will be produced in partnership with various defense industries in India.
