    They are in the process of building a new 310 m long dry dock. For Vishal, perhaps ?

    In my opinion, Reliance (Pipavav) should have been awarded the FSS contract. They have huge facilities for building such large ships.

    Given that Pipavav has been accruing losses yoy, it's future seems bleak unless it takes some drastic measures.

    IAC-2 pushed back because they want most advanced features out there for the next carrier. If they were ok will conventional design then 65k ton based on Vikrant was easy to design and build. Let alone current sized vikrant.

    Its funny to expect 'follow on vikrant' when in reality they couldn't even order 'follow on scorpions' with p75I delay of a decade. :dude:

    New drydock is for large LNG ships. All these orders are uncertain at the moment. Let us hope LNG order by 2018 and INS Vishal order after that.

    The PIB press release had mentioned 'aircraft carriers' though. Anyway I thought GAIL's LNG carrier tender had been cancelled.

    What's your opinion about L&T's shipbuilding venture. The yard in Tamil Nadu, I mean.

    They have 5 OPVs for Navy contracted right now. Program delayed by about 2 years.

    Let them finish it first , then talk about Capital ships.

    Prompt Navy action helps avert major mishap of Jet aircraft

    BY: PTI | PANAJI |
    Updated: December 27, 2016 1:27 Pm


    Navy on Tuesday said its prompt response in rescuing passengers on-board the Mumbai-bound flight that veered off the runway at Dabolim Airport in Goa early in the day, has averted the incident from turning into a “catastrophe”. “The Navy responded within 15-20 minutes and all the passengers were evacuated safely out of the aircraft. It would have turned into a catastrophe had the Navy not acted promptly,” a Naval spokesperson said.
    The incident took place at around 5 AM when Jet Airways flight 9W 2374 that had arrived from Dubai and was bound for Mumbai, skidded off the runway while aligning for the take off. The Goa airport is located in Indian Navy’s facility, INS Hansa in Vasco town, nearly 25 km from here.


    As many as 15 passengers suffered “minor injuries and fractures” during the evacuation process, Navy sources said. “Few guests have sustained minor injuries during the evacuation process and medical assistance is being coordinated by the Jet Airways team and the airport authorities,” the airlines said in a statement.

    Beside 154 passengers, there were seven crew members on board. Meanwhile, the runway was made available for flight operations at 9 AM, hours before the initial deadline of 12.30 PM.
    Soon after the incident, Navy officials had cordoned off the aircraft that had tilted towards its front end, while the passengers were being alighted. “After the passengers were evacuated, the operation to rescue the aircraft started. The damage to the runway was also accessed by a team of Indian Navy and Airport Authority of India officials,” the spokesperson said.
    “There was lot of muck on the runway as the flight was grounded on the sides of the runway,” he said.
    During the rescue operation hours, a chartered flight was diverted to Bangalore, while an Oman Air flight that was scheduled to arrive in morning, was diverted to Mumbai, he said.
    A total of seven scheduled flights that were to land at the airport were cancelled, while one scheduled flight and another chartered flight remained grounded. The two aircrafts will take off later during the day.

    Which radar is this ?

    3D S-Band Naval Missile Defense Radar


    [​IMG]

    Naval Missile Defense Radar (NMDR) is a Multi Function Active phased array Radar with Solid state Transceiver for Naval applications. The Radar provides the 3 dimensions of the target of interest along with Doppler of the target in tactical scenarios.

    NMDR employs on receive multi-beam in elevation with mono pulse in both azimuth and elevation, Digital Pulse compression, Pulse Doppler and many Advanced and contemporary Technologies, with very elegant and modular architecture. These technologies enable detection of very low RCS missile targets from complex land and sea clutter and jamming environment.

    NMDR has very light weight antenna and can be easily accommodate on wheeled vehicles and small ships.

    FEATURES
    • Multi-beam Elevation processing
    • Monopulse in both Azimuth and Elevation
    • Pulse compression and Pulse Doppler processing
    • Light weight Antenna (less than 2 tons)
    • Low power mode of operation
    • Least jammed detection and effective radar operation by frequency management
    • War time and Peace time frequencies of operation

    http://www.asianage.com/metros/mumb...-induct-more-submarines-warships-in-2017.html

    The Indian Navy’s Western Naval Command is set to induct more warships and submarines in 2017. According to naval sources, submarine INS Khanderi will be set afloat this month. Khanderi is the second submarine of the Scorpene -class submarines, which are being constructed at the Mazagaon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd (MDL). MDL was earlier planning to set Khanderi afloat last month, but the plan was postponed in the wake of the mishap involving the Brahmaputra-class guided missile frigate INS Betwa (F39) that was undergoing a refit at the Naval Dockyard in Mumbai. Two personnel were killed and over a dozen were injured when the INS Betwa tipped over during an undocking exercise.

    Further, the first Scorpene- class submarine INS Kalvari is also likely to get commissioned in March this year. Earlier, the giant submarine was supposed to get commissioned into the naval fleet in September 2016. But being an indigenous submarine, it was put through several trials, which took a lot of time, said naval sources. The submarine has of late added another torpedo to its armoury, the sources added. INS Kalvari is armed with six 533-mm torpedo tubes that can deploy SM-39 Exocet Block 2 anti-ship missiles.

    Commenting on the capacity of INS Kalvari, an official said, “Even though it is powered by diesel, the 67-metre-long submarine, which has a 6.2-metre diameter, has been designed to minimise noise and act with stealth in war theatres. A specific technology — an air independent propulsion system — will ensure that it stays underwater longer.”

    It's good to see our development and production of warships is flourishing, hope this leads to many sales, especially in SE Asia; we'd be killing two birds with one stone in that case.

    Indian Navy to induct INS Kalvari only when fully operational

    Ajit Kumar Dubey New Delhi, Thursday, January 5, 2017


    ●Earlier the shipyards would hand over warships to the Navy and then would continue trials on the systems on board and the vessels would be made fighting fit long after their official induction.
    ●It is most likely that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would induct the submarine into the navy in presence of Parrikar.
    ●Parrikar had launched the submarine in March last year for sea trials where the vessel has sailed for over 1,000 hours till now.


    Seeking to change the old practice of inducting incomplete warships, the defence ministry and the Indian Navy are now planning to induct the first Scorpene-class submarine INS Kalvari only when it is full ready for operational deployment.

    Major change in thinking

    This is a major change in thinking of the government as earlier the shipyards would hand over warships to the Navy and then would continue trials on the systems on board and the vessels would be made fighting fit long after their official induction.

    "The defence ministry is of the view that the vessels should be commissioned in service only if they are ready for deployment in operations moments after they are commissioned into the service," Navy sources told MAIL TODAY here.

    "That is why, we have asked the original equipment manufacturer Mazagon Dockyards Limited and the French DCNS to complete all trials, including sensors and weapon fitment, before it is handed over to the Navy for operations," they said.

    PM Narendra Modi to induct INS Kalvari into Indian Navy

    Given the importance of the vessel for the country, it is most likely that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would induct the submarine into the navy in presence of Parrikar.

    INS Kalvari is first of the six Scorpene-class submarines

    The INS Kalvari is first of the six Scorpene-class submarines being built by the MDL in Mumbai with DCNS under a Rs 23,000- crore project and is delayed by four years due to issues related to make in India equipment for the vessels.

    This can result in the navy waiting for a few more months before it gets to lay its hands on its first new conventional submarine to be inducted after gap of almost two decades. The 'Kalvari' (Tiger Shark) was planned to be inducted by the Navy by the end of 2016.

    Modi brings change in warship commissioning philosophy

    The issue of changing the warship commissioning philosophy was first felt when Prime Minister Modi commissioned the indigenous warship INS Kolkata in MDL in 2014.

    While inducting the vessel, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said induction of Kolkata would deter the enemies of the nation, it was soon pointed out that the INS Kolkata was not really complete. Several key weapon systems and sensors were missing and were either being developed or yet to be procured including the Barak-8 air defence missiles and towed array sonars which could give it the capability to detect enemy submarines in waters.

    "The thinking is now that the manufacturer should complete each and every work related to the submarine and hand over a fully complete vessel to the force," said navy sources.

    Parrikar had launched the submarine in March last year for sea trials where the vessel has sailed for over 1,000 hours till now.

    What's taking so long in it's trials?? Is this has something to do with the data leak?? Maybe some minor changes has been done to the submarine.
