Maritime Security in the Indian Coast given a push by the Central Government

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh has cleared several projects aimed at adding strength to India’s Maritime Security at the first meeting of the defense acquisition council held in the national capital on August eighth. The decision comes in the wake of India’s concern over increased activities of the Chinese navy in Indian Ocean region and also their companies operating ports in neighboring Sri Lanka

The Defense Minister gave approval for procurement of indigenous Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Next Generation Maritime Mobile Coastal Batteries (NGMMCB) for the Indian Navy according to an Official release.

SDR indigenously designed and developed by DRDO

The SDR communication system has been indigenously designed and developed by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), Bharat Electronic Limited (BEL) and Weapons Electronics System Engineering Establishment (WESEE). It will enable information sharing, collaboration and situational awareness through high-speed data and secure voice communication without being jammed by the enemy.

The Next Generation Maritime Mobile Coastal Batteries will be fitted with supersonic Brah-Mos surface-to- surface cruise missiles and will be deployed along the coast. It has been developed and manufactured in India by Indo-Russia Joint Venture Company, BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited. 

Both the indigenously developed systems are of the latest generation and will give a fillip to Make-in-India initiative, the government believes.
