    The new radars will replace Fly Catcher radars procured between 1985-1990 to help with the Bofors L70 Anti Aircraft Canons.

    We have around 120 Signaal Fly Catcher radars now, so in all likelihood the "66" will also have options to buy more.

    BEL and L&T both too were a part of this competition but they failed to show anything more than just "plans".

    Nothings yet clear about the type of offers made.

    But by the named of project "Tactical 3D Air Search Radar" ,in all likelihood it would either be ELM 2026 family or ELM 2106 family.

    Under the tender, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) will supply 66 new-generation 3-D surveillance and tracking radar to the Indian Army under technology transfer. The radar has been developed by Elta especially for the Indian Army. The closest rival was Thales from Netherlands.

    The radar will be equipped to track wide variety of platforms including low-level high-speed fighter aircraft, hovering helicopters, low ultra-light aircraft and UAVs.

    Indian Army will operationalize these high mobility and low power consuming radars in difficult Himalayan terrain bordering Pakistan and China. Indian Army has asked for radars which can provide accurate range, azimuth and elevation angle measurements for each target, and capable of differentiating between different type of threat.

    The Elta radar will track multiple targets in all weather conditions and its most important feature is its ability to be deployed fast. It will replace Flycatcher Radar which was manufactured in collaboration with HSA and supplied to the army in 1987

    Indian defense ministry had issued global tender in 2012 to Selex Sistemi Integrati of Italy, Raytheon of the United States, Thales, IAI, and Rosoboronexport of Russia.
