Indian Air Force gets desperate for software-defined radios

5th August 2019 - 02:19 GMT | by Neelam Mathews in Delhi


Amidst a pressing necessity for software-defined radios (SDR) to fill glaring gaps in its legacy systems for secure information sharing and situation awareness, the Indian Air Force (IAF) is urgently acquiring radios from Israel.

The IAF is to order around 400 SDRs from Elbit Systems on an emergency basis. Shephard expects they will be installed on Mirage 2000, MiG-29 and Su-30 fighters.

Elsewhere, the IAF released an RfI for SDRs in January, with this to be followed by an RfP in October for some 3,500 SDRs along with associated equipment for airborne and ground platforms.

India needs large numbers of SDRs
