The Indian Air Force (IAF) has issued two Requests for Proposals (RFPs) seeking indigenous development of critical technologies for its fleet of Mirage-2000 aircraft. These RFPs aim to boost India’s self-reliance in the defence sector and provide a much-needed upgrade to the Mirage-2000s.
The first RFP seeks a consortium of Indian companies to develop an indigenous integrated Fly-by-Wire (FBW) system tester for the Mirage-2000 aircraft. This system will replace the existing FBW system tester currently in use.
Key requirements for the indigenous FBW Tester system:
- Developed and manufactured entirely in India.
- Utilize LabVIEW software and PXI-based instrumentation and controllers.
- Offer improved performance and reliability compared to the existing system.
- Be compatible with existing Mirage-2000 avionics and systems.
The second RFP seeks the development of an indigenous integrated anti-skid tester for the Mirage-2000 aircraft. This tester will be used to verify the functionality and performance of the aircraft’s anti-skid braking system, ensuring safe and effective operation during landing and taxiing.
Key requirements for the indigenous anti-skid tester:
- Designed and built entirely in India.
- Employ LabVIEW software and PXI-based instrumentation and controllers.
- Offer accurate and reliable testing of the anti-skid system.
- Be portable and easy to operate.
These RFPs represent a major step forward for India’s defence industry. The successful execution of these projects will not only enhance the capabilities of the Mirage-2000 fleet but also demonstrate India’s growing expertise in developing complex aerospace technologies.
