The Ministry of Defence, Government of India, has issued a Request for Information (RFI) for the procurement of an Air Defence Gun Missile System (Self Propelled) (ADGM Sys (SP)). The system is intended to provide close air defence protection to mechanized formations against evolving and dynamic air threats.

The Indian Army’s Air Defence division requires the ADGM Sys (SP) as a Mobile Terminal Air Defence System, capable of operating in various terrains and embedded within their maneuvers and tactical operations.

The key requirements outlined in the RFI are as follows:

(a) The weapon system should consist of a combination of both guns and missiles mounted on a single/dual platform, either a tracked or wheeled vehicle (HMV 6×6/HMV 8×8).

(b) The system should include a low Radar Cross Section (RCS) 3-D Acquisition cum Fire Control Radar, an Electro-Optical Fire Control System (EOFCS), and a Fire Control Computer (FCC).

(c) The gun should be capable of engaging aerial targets using both the Fire Control Radar and the EOFCS, during both day and night operations. The missile should also be able to engage targets using the EOFCS, under varying light conditions.

(d) The system should be capable of acquiring and tracking targets while on the move and effectively engaging aerial targets with the gun during movement and with the missile during short halts.

(e) The system should have the capability to engage fighter aircraft, helicopters (including hovering helicopters), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAVs), and cruise missiles.

The RFI further specifies that the low RCS Radar should be based on a 3-D Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) with digital beam forming, providing multifunction capabilities such as Track While Scan (TWS) and the ability to operate in jamming environments. The radar should enable 360-degree surveillance, target detection, and tracking.

Additionally, an Electro-Optical Fire Control System is required for angular tracking of air targets during different weather conditions, including day and night operations. The system should consist of a Thermal Imaging (TI) sight and an optical sight for tracking. The range details will be provided by the Laser Range Finder (LRF).

The ADGM Sys (SP) should be able to engage various types of aircraft, helicopters, attack helicopters, UAVs, UCAVs, and cruise missiles, with a minimum range of 6,500 meters.

The AESA Search Radar of the system should provide continuous three-dimensional (3D) surveillance of aerial platforms within the area of responsibility. It should be capable of detecting fighter aircraft, helicopters (including hovering helicopters), UAVs, UCAVs, and cruise missiles. The radar should be able to process targets in TWS mode, provide 360-degree surveillance, and detect targets at a range of not less than 6,500 meters.
