Indra, TATA install the naval version of Lanza 3D radar on Indian Navy front line ship

Indra Sistemas, S.A., a Spanish information technology and defense systems company, has begun installing the first of the 23 radars that it will equip the Indian Naval ships, after successfully passing the Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) of the radar.

The company has adapted the most advanced version of the Lanza-N radar, based on the one installed in the Spanish ship Juan Carlos I, to the regulatory requirements of India, for example, in the environmental field, to guarantee its optimal operation even in high humidity and extreme heat conditions.

Noteworthy, this is a technology transfer program, materialized in a contract signed by Indra with the Indian company TATA Advanced Systems Limited (TASL) in 2020.

This provides for the delivery by Indra of a total of three complete radars, plus the core elements of its system for another 20 radars, destined for ships, which TASL will complete and integrate locally.

To them is added an additional reference radar to support this technology transfer during the additional maintenance period of 12 and a half years.

After designing and producing the first radar at Indra’s facilities in Madrid, the system passed the factory acceptance tests (FAT) at CEAR, the Radioelectric Analysis Center of the Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA) in November, to be subsequently shipped to India, where installation has begun once the ship has become available.
