The Indian Ministry of Defence has awarded Larsen & Toubro (L&T) a contract for the supply of High Power Radars (HPR) and Close-In Weapon Systems (CIWS) for the country’s air force.

The contract is estimated to be valued between INR 5,000-10,000 Crore ($600-$1,200 million).

HPR, a static sensor for long-range aerial surveillance with higher uptime, is equipped with multiple Next-Gen features and capable of remote operations. These radars are intended to enhance the Indian Air Force's capabilities in monitoring special zones of interest, as well as designating and tracking adversaries with optimal accuracy. The turnkey project is set to be executed across multiple locations.

L&T has also signed a contract for the supply of indigenously developed Close-In Weapon Systems (CIWS) to the IAF, as part of an earlier won major order. The CIWS is planned for deployment at various locations across India to protect vital assets from all types of low-flying, low-signature aerial threats, including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The CIWS comprises Air Defence Guns, Tracking Radars, and a Search Radar linked to a Command & Control Shelter, along with associated simulators and communication equipment.

The CIWS and HPR systems will be realized at L&T's manufacturing facilities in close collaboration with industrial ecosystem partners, including MSMEs across India.
