Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) and Larsen & Toubro (L&T) have joined forces in a significant partnership to supply cutting-edge Communication and Electronic Warfare (EW) sensors and systems to the Indian Navy. The contract, valued at Rs 847.70 crore, underscores the commitment of both companies to bolster India’s defense capabilities through indigenous manufacturing and technological innovation.

Under the terms of the contract, BEL will provide 14 state-of-the-art Communication and EW sensors and systems, all of which will be domestically manufactured. These advanced systems will be installed on three Cadet Training Ships, enhancing the Indian Navy’s communication and electronic warfare capabilities.

The collaboration between BEL and L&T not only highlights the strength of their partnership but also emphasizes the broader cooperation within the Indian defense industry. By leveraging each other’s expertise and resources, both companies aim to deliver high-quality solutions that meet the stringent requirements of the Indian armed forces.

Importantly, the successful execution of this contract will involve the participation of numerous micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), further boosting the indigenous defense manufacturing ecosystem. This aligns with the vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India) and reinforces the government’s efforts to promote domestic production and reduce dependency on imports.

In addition to the contract with L&T, BEL has announced securing orders valued at Rs 1,092.65 crore since its last disclosure in February 2024. These orders encompass a range of defense products and services, including Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) for T-70 and T-90 tanks, communication systems for the Indian Navy, and various other spares and services.
