Installation of these radars is expected to increase the air domain awareness around airfields, as well as enhance safety and efficiency in flying operations.

The contract is also a major step towards India’s ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan’ initiative.

The Atmanirbhar Bharat vision is an initiative introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make India self-reliant and increase domestic defence manufacturing in the country.

In a statement, Indian MoD stated that the contract signing ‘would enable absorption of technology, skill development as well as indigenous manufacture’, creating many job opportunities.

In May 2019, Tech Mahindra secured a contract with the Indian Navy to implement a radio frequency identification (RFID) based access control system across all naval bases and ships.
