The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has shed light on its Long Range Radar (LRR) system, a significant development in India’s missile defense capabilities. This news comes on the heels of previous tenders hinting at the LRR’s development, and the DRDO’s official details offer a glimpse into this cutting-edge technology.

The DRDO has confirmed that major subsystems of the LRR have already been successfully developed. A crucial stage is currently underway – the stage-wise assembly of the Active Array Antenna Unit (AAAU). The AAAU is the heart of the AESA radar, responsible for transmitting and receiving radar signals. Its successful assembly signifies a significant milestone in the project’s timeline.

The LRR’s development strengthens India’s multi-tiered missile defence architecture. This system, coupled with existing and future interceptor missiles, will provide a more robust shield against potential ballistic missile threats.

The LRR is an active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar system, marking a leap forward from traditional passive radar technologies. AESA radars offer superior performance due to their electronically steered beams, allowing for:

  • Enhanced Detection and Identification: The LRR boasts the ability to detect and identify ballistic missile threats, providing crucial early warning capabilities.
  • Precision Fire Control: The radar can precisely track incoming missiles, enabling accurate targeting for missile defence systems.
  • Seamless Data Transmission: The LRR facilitates the transmission of critical target data to higher command echelons, ensuring a coordinated response.
