India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is on the lookout for a development and production partner. This collaboration aims to create mission systems for a new generation of maritime patrol aircraft based on the C295 platform.

The project envisions two variants of the patrol aircraft, Multi-Mode Maritime Aircraft (MMMA) is a variant intended for the Indian Coast Guard, enhancing their capabilities in various maritime operations. Medium Range Maritime Reconnaissance (MRMR) is Designed for the Indian Navy, the MRMR variant will bolster their long-range surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

A key aspect of the project involves integrating advanced sensors onto the C295 platform. One such sensor being proposed is an active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar. This powerful radar offers several advantages over traditional radars, including:

The planned AESA radar is based on the S-band (2-4 GHz) primary surveillance radar (PSR) currently used on the Embraer EMB-145 Netra Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft. However, this variant will be specifically optimized for air-to-sea surface monitoring, allowing for superior detection and tracking of maritime targets.

DRDO is seeking a qualified DCPP with expertise in developing and producing complex mission systems for airborne platforms. This partnership is crucial for the successful development and deployment of these next-generation maritime patrol aircraft.
