India is all set to re-issue a request for information (RFI) to procure nine turbofan aircraft capable of performing a range of roles. India already operates a small fleet of modified Gulfstream III and Bombardier Global 5000 jets to perform surveying, target towing, communications intelligence and signals intelligence (SIGINT).
Since 2012, India’s Intelligent agencies and Indian air force have been looking to expand its fleet of Snooping Aircraft capable of operating in a range of environments from tropical to very high altitudes.
As per last RFI, India was looking for Two dedicated SIGINT platforms and Seven others for including dropping of flares, passenger and cargo roles. last RFI had called for futuristic, state-of-the-art system using cutting edge technologies, algorithms and software.
As per latest report, India is keen to follow up soon with a request for Proposal (RFP) by mid-2018 and execution of the order there after. Since procurement of SIGINT aircraft is always a hush-hush matter we won’t know who won the bid and which aircraft were ordered by India until they are spotted in India.
