India’s Defence Electronics Research Laboratory (DLRL) is seeking a vendor to perform “platform modification and installation” of the Sarvadhari communications intelligence (COMINT) system aboard the Indian navy’s IL-38 maritime patrol aircraft (MPA).
A document for the project notes that the vendor would have to perform engineering studies and analyses as part of the process to install and integrate the new COMINT kit. The planned timeframe for engineering and installation work is over a period of five months from order placement.
The Sarvadhari COMINT system includes an underbelly mounted five-blade antennae, GPS antennae, signal processing and receiver units, and a removable laptop display.
