Rafael is getting ready to supply its BNET-AR, part of the Israeli company's software-defined radio family, to the Indian Air Force (IAF) in serious quantities.

Speaking to Shephard at Aero India 2017 in Bangalore, a Rafael spokesman said a contract should be signed by the end of March after the company was earlier selected to supply the BNET-AR for the IAF's Sukhoi Su-30MKI (pictured above), Jaguar and airborne early warning aircraft fleets.

When units for both aircraft and ground stations are counted, the quantity amounts to 1,000 radios, each of which weighs 7kg and measures 130 x 250 x 250mm.
