According to a report in Danik Bhaskar, on the plains of Agawali, 30 km from the Udaipur, two dome-like structures have come up in the area on a hill near Pipliyaji which could be the first site of the radars to track enemy missiles which is part of the ballistic missile defense grid will help guard New Delhi and Mumbai.
It is likely that this dome has L-band long-range tracking radar (LRTR) and is the first of four sites that will have LRTR radar to monitor launches for ballistic missiles on the western sector but also to provide crucial data for India’s Phase-1 of the ballistic missile defense (BMD) network.
As per satellite imagery, India is working on three more such sites one each in Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and another one in Rajasthan. It is expected that work on the first radar site will be completed by mid-2023 and the rest will become operational by 2024.
