Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), India’s state-owned aerospace and defense company, has issued a tender for the design, development, and supply of several critical systems for its upcoming Indian Multi-Role Helicopter (IMRH) and Deck-Based Multi-Role Helicopter (DBMRH) programs. These advanced helicopters are intended to replace aging Russian platforms and bolster India’s airpower capabilities.

The 13–16 tons IMRH is being conceived as a replacement for Mil Mi-17 utility helicopters, which form the mainstay of the Indian military’s heavy-utility rotorcraft fleet.

Key Systems Sought:

  • Chemical and Biological Sensors: These sensors will detect and identify chemical and biological threats, enhancing the helicopters’ ability to operate in hazardous environments.
  • Winchman Ministick/Autohover Cabin Stick: This system will provide precise control during winching operations, critical for search and rescue, casualty evacuation, and other missions.
  • Weather Radar: This radar will provide real-time weather information, allowing pilots to navigate challenging weather conditions safely.
  • Nuclear Sensors: These sensors will detect and identify nuclear threats, contributing to India’s nuclear deterrence capabilities.
  • Batteries: High-performance batteries are essential for extended range and endurance, crucial for the IMRH and DBMRH’s diverse missions.
  • Electronic Support Measures (ESM)/Electronic Intelligence (ELINT): This system will detect and identify enemy radar and communication signals, enhancing situational awareness and electronic warfare capabilities.
  • Cockpit Management Display Systems (CMDS): These advanced displays will provide pilots with critical flight information and control systems, improving operational efficiency and safety.

Significance of the Tender:

This tender signifies HAL’s commitment to equipping the IMRH and DBMRH with cutting-edge technology. By collaborating with domestic and international partners, HAL aims to achieve self-reliance in critical areas of helicopter technology. This will not only reduce dependence on foreign imports but also create jobs and technological expertise within India.
