Saab and Bharat Electronics Co-develop Surveillance Radar

Saab and Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) have co-developed a state-of-the-art Long Range Surveillance Radar in India. Two out of three subsystems have been designed and developed in India.

Bengaluru-based BEL has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Saab for the joint marketing of the L-Band 3D Air Surveillance Radar, RAWL-03. The cost effective Long Range Air Surveillance Radar is perfect for early detection and tracking of air and surface targets, thereby enabling engagement of fire control systems to neutralise the targets.

The RAWL-03 comes in both ship and land-based configurations. The system is based on the GaN TR Module technology and incorporates the latest Signal Processing techniques.

This is an example of true transfer of technology – building capability in India, for India. This partnership will also enable India to be the global manufacturing hub to build the entire radar in future.
