Military Space Cloud Architecture (MILSCA) will be able to store more than 100 Terabytes of data generated on Earth and in space on board each constellation satellite with a processing power exceeding 250 TFLOPS (250,000 billion operations per second).
India Navy's SSR project progresses
Tata Advanced Systems subsidiary Nova Integrated Systems (NISL) has signed a contract with the Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) to carry out the Indian Navy's surface surveillance radar (SSR) project.
The project involves delivery, installation and commissioning of radar systems on Indian Navy vessels, as well as delivery of simulators, establishing depot level facilities, and integrated logistics support over ten years.
Jens Maaløe, president and chief executive officer, Terma, said: 'We see this contract between MoD, government of India and NISL as a very important milestone for Terma as we strongly support the 'Make in India' initiative. We are happy to participate in this initiative that will further strengthen our well-established collaboration between the two companies.'
Facilities at Tata Advanced Systems' Combat Management Systems development centre will be used for the SSR project which involves integration of the radar with a variety of weapon and sensor systems on different class of vessels of the Indian Navy's fleet.
