Army inducts indigenously developed Akashteer Control and Reporting Systems

The Indian Army has started the induction of indigenous control and reporting systems under ‘Project Akashdeep’ to bolster its air defence capabilities.

Noteworthy, the deployment of the systems began with flagging off of the first batch of Control Centres from BEL Ghaziabad.

Developed by Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), the project is aimed at significantly enhancing the operational efficiency and integration of the Army’s air defence mechanisms.

“The Akashteer Project is a cutting-edge initiative designed to automate air defence control and reporting processes by digitising the entire process,” a source said.

The source added that with 2024 designated as the ‘Year of Tech Absorption’, induction of Akashteer Control Centres will meet the current and futuristic requirements of complex air defence operations.
