Astra Microwave Products Ltd. (Astra Microwave) has achieved a significant milestone by securing its largest domestic order to date. The company will be supplying Medium Power Radar (MPR) subsystems to Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) with a total gross order value of ?386 Crore.

The MPR, codenamed “Arudhra,” is a testament to India’s growing prowess in indigenous defense technology. Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the radar will be manufactured by BEL. Having successfully undergone trials conducted by the Indian Air Force (IAF), the MPR is poised for deployment.

The MPR boasts impressive capabilities. This 4th generation multi-function phased array radar utilizes electronic steering in both azimuth and elevation planes. This technology enables superior surveillance, detection, and tracking of aerial targets. Furthermore, the system incorporates target identification through interrogations from a co-located Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) system, enhancing battlefield awareness and minimizing friendly fire incidents.

This substantial order from BEL marks a major achievement for Astra Microwave. The company’s expertise in manufacturing critical radar subsystems is a vital cog in the development of India’s indigenous defense ecosystem.
