Request for Information has been issued for “a high voltage, multi-calibre potent parabolic air defence system (ADS) comprising a range of missiles, definitive munitions and hyper-reactive sensors,” as per UNI. Dubbed as India’s THAAD system, it is proposed to protect the vital assets and strategic installations. The ADS is expected to guard against aerial, space and clandestine operations.
Indian suppliers are being encouraged and given preference. Initially the shield will be built by integrating the muti sourced defence systems with the indigenous network.
