    Mauritius: Indian Navy Ship Teg Carries Out EEZ Surveillance in Mauritius

    Testimony to the deep rooted friendship and cooperation between Mauritius and India, Indian Naval Ship Teg, a frontline Guided Missile Frigate, has been deployed for a surveillance mission and will be patrolling the Northern reaches of the vast Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of Mauritius as from 10 July 2015. The ship is scheduled to call at Port Louis from 13 to 16 July and from 23 to 26 July 2015.

    During the course of the deployment, the ship will be conducting free medical camps for the outer-islanders and will render expert technical assistance for the equipment located on these islands.


    The presence of Teg will be a boost to the confidence of our seafarers and also to the security of the islanders at Agalega, Rodrigues and St Brandon. The ship has participated in many anti-piracy operations in Gulf of Aden, North West Indian Ocean. It has also undertaken various successful Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Relief missions.

    The Teg is the 18th Indian Navy ship undertaking dedicated EEZ Surveillance in Mauritius since 2009. These committed and custom-made deployments for joint patrol by Indian Navy ships with the National Coast Guard underscore the strong relationship and bonds between the two countries.

    INS Teg is a state-of-the-art Guided missile frigate with capacity to carry integral helicopter and undertake prolonged surveillance missions. This feature makes it uniquely suited for surveillance and anti-piracy patrols at far-flung islands and coastal regions.

    The ship has a Chetak helicopter embarked and will undertake regular flying in Mauritian EEZ towards the joint EEZ Surveillance and Outer Island Support in conjunction with the Maritime Air Squadron of the National Coast Guard, Mauritius.

    These patrols are conducted in coordination with the National Coast Guard of Mauritius to prevent illegal fishing activity and thwart the spread of piracy in the EEZ of Mauritius.

    With this deployment, the Indian Navy and the National Coast Guard would have undertaken more than 550 days of tailor-made dedicated joint EEZ surveillance which has proven to be a deterrent against piracy and illegal fishing in Mauritian waters.

    Navy to develop INS Dega to augment civil and military operations

    VISAKHAPATNAM: Navy will acquire more land to create better infrastructure at INS Dega, a Naval air station here, to allow more aircrafts with civil and military purposes to operate on the eastern seaboard, a senior navy official said today.

    Addressing the media in connection with the arrival of the P8I, a multi-dimensional aircraft, Commanding Officer of INS Dega, Captain D Bhattacharya said, "INS Dega is a very important naval air station on the eastern seaboard. The Indian navy had acquired eight P8I aircrafts from the United States of America and out of them, seven have already arrived in the country and one more will be added soon."

    He said India is the first country in the world to purchase P8I aircrafts from the USA.

    All the P8I aircrafts will be stationed at Arkonam in Tamil Nadu, he said.

    The anti-submarine aircraft will consist of nine crew members, including two pilots. Its main purpose will be to search and detect submarines with the help of latest radars and equipments, he said.

    He said INS Dega is the only naval air station out of the nine naval air stations in the country to launch Advanced Jet Trainer (AJT) Hawk training to the fighter pilots.

    The naval air station, at present, has 11 AJT Hawk aircrafts and will acquire six more to bring the total strength to 17 in two years, he said.

    He said infrastructure will be created at the station for MiG-29 squadron, which will commence its operations as soon as aircraft carrier INS Vikrant is commissioned here within three years.

    The air station at present has 40 aircrafts, including naval helicopters, and some more will be added soon, he said.

    The INS Dega is manned by Indian navy personnel round the clock to allow international flights, Bhattacharya said.

    He said the navy will acquire some more land to create better infrastructure at the station.

    The Indian navy is providing all support for the civil airport to run commercial flights, he further said, adding infrastructure will be created on both sides of the airport for civil and military purposes.

    The Indian navy is also developing the Bobbili airfield in Vizianagaram district as an alternative and diversionary airfield to shift some of the aircrafts there in case of any emergency, he further said.

    The Bobbili airstrip, which dates back to the Second World War, at present has two runways and it will be developed further, he added.

    Quote from Prasun K Sengupta on SSN project

    Blogger Prasun K. Sengupta said...
    Just got back from a hectic 5-day working-trip to Russia during which the following were visited:

    JSC Rubin Central Marine Engineering Design Bureau (SKB-18) in St Petereburg
    JSC Afrikantov Experimental Design Bureau for Mechanical Engineering (OKBM) Nizhny Novgorod
    Izhorsky Zavod, at Kolpino, near St Petersburg & the Nizhny Novgorod Machine-Building Plant
    Concern AVRORA Scientific and Production Association JSC in St Petersburg

    The Ruskies are coming with a bang!!! The above-mentioned companies have frozen the design of a 4++ generation single-hulled SSN that Russia will be series-producing at the Amursky Yard (formerly shipyard No. 199) at Komosomolsk-na-Amur in the Far east. And this very SSN is most likely to be selected by the IN for series-producing by Larsen & Toubro at Kattupalli. This SSN will use several India-made sub-systems & components already on-board the S-2/Arihant, meaning the 2,500-odd Indian OEMs who are already certified to produce Russia-IPR-owned sub-systems & components will be able to do the same for the SSNs as well, thereby resulting in significant cost-savings. The Integrated PWR will have life of 36 years & will be rated at 45mW Thermal. Submerged displacement of this SSN will be close to 5,000 tonnes. All-electric propulsion system will be used, thereby doing away with clutches, reduction gear & transmission coupling for the propeller. It will be qualified to launched both 533mm torpedoes & BrahMos-NG ASCMs from torpedo-tubes. If the Govt of India later this year inks this landmark deal, then the Russian OEMs will immediately start sending the detailed design drawings done with Dassault's CATIA software CAD software to L & T, which in turn will commence a virtual design of this SSN at its virtual-reality submarine design facility.

    In addition, all R & D work has been completed by OKBM on a 175mW Thermal Integrated PWR & all-electric propulsion system that will be offered for the IAC-2 project.

    Will resume blogging later today after catching up on some urgently-need sleep.

    Meanwhile, all those 'desi' pubby/shubby/unni journalists spreading rumours about the IN leasing Project 885 Yasen-class or Project 971 Kashalot SSGNs, EAT SHIIIIIIIIITTTTTT!!!

    To GESSLER: The older photo was that of a derivative of the Project 971B SSGN. The SSN has been designed by RUBIN. It will be hydrodynamically more sleeker & will externally resemble the Project 705 Lira Alfa-class SSN. But the new SSN will be lighter & sleeker as it will be single-hulled & it will have far greater automation features. For instance, it will have photonic masts (most probably from THALES) & no periscopes, which in turn eliminates the traditional helmsman, planesman, chief-of-the-watch and diving officer by combining them into two stations manned by only two officers. The 46mW Thermal 4th-generation PWR was tested way back in 2006 by RUBIN & OKBM & has since been considerably refined. It was originally developed to cater to the Russian Navy’s reqmt for a new-generation SSN that will protect the flanks of the Project 955 SSBNs as pure hunter-killers, leaving the Project 885 SSGNs nto focus exclusively on shadowing & targetting hostile carrier battle-groups. For it must be recalled that the former USSR always operated several types of third-generation SSNs, & the most prolific of them were the Project 671 Yorsh, Project 671RT Syomga & Project 671RTM Shchuka SSNs—all of which have been decommissioned & require replacements.

    Blogger Prasun K. Sengupta said...
    It will be spherical sonars for both SSNs as well as all other future warships of the IN as well. That's precisely why the cylindrical-array HUMSA is being rejected by the IN, which believes that the DRDO does not possess any expertise on spherical sonar R & D & all future sonar suites for warships b& submarines will be imported, most probably from France's THALES. Rubis has 48mW Thermal PWR. For running a 5,000-tonne SSN, 25mW Electric is all that's reqd.

    Blogger Prasun K. Sengupta said...
    No, such 20% rules don't apply because the overall power output in mWe depends on 1) the PWR's energy density , i.e. what combination of LEU & HEU is used to make up the fissile core; & 2) the thermal efficiency of the heat-exchanger. In fact, land-based reactor efficiency too is undergoing enhancements to super-thermal levels due to advances in heat-exchanger technologies. In any PWR for SSNs or SSGNs or SSBNs, the fissile core is n ever 100% HEU or 100% LEU. It is an optimum mixture of both depending on the thermal efficiency demands of the heat-exchanger. In other words, the most sensitive technology is not so much the PWR design, but the sophistication of the heat-exchanger.

    BTW, Larsen & Toubro's virtual-reality submarine design centre is in Gurgaon & has been operational since 2006. In fact, it was developed jointly with RUBIN.

    India and the Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport are discussing plans to set up licensed production of Admiral Grigorovich class frigates under the Make in India program, the company said on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The project is set to take place amid increased Russia-Indian defense industry cooperation.

    "At the present time, for instance, we are in talks on the feasibility of developing Project 75 (I) submarines based on the latest Amur-1650 diesel-electric submarines, and on the procurement of an additional lot of Project 11356 frigates and setting up of their license production in India," Rosoboronexport Deputy Director Sergei Goreslavsky said in the company's press release.

    Cooperation discussions will take place on March 28-31 during the Defexpo India 2016international land and naval systems exhibition to be held in Naqueri Quitol in India's state of Goa. Rosoboronexport plans to present numerous naval vessels, as well as new tanks, combat vehicles and air defense systems, according to the press release.

    Admiral Grigorovich-class frigate
    Trials of Russia's new Admiral Grigorovich class frigates were successfully completed in the Barents Sea in late 2015. The frigates, displacing 3,850 tons, are designed for anti-ship and anti-submarine warfare as well as for air defense missions, operating both independently or as part of convoys and naval task forces.

    The Admiral Grigorovich frigate will be the first in a series of six frigates of the Project 11356 being built for the Black Sea Fleet to join the Russian Navy.

    Russia and India have enjoyed mutually beneficial strategic relations, especially in the field of defense and military cooperation, since the 1960s

    Once again another almighty f**k up by the procurement agency. I wonder how long now it will take before this is sorted,meanwhile the Navy has to make do with what it has. Talk about scoring an own goal, and please don't go all 'holier-than-thou' and talk about anti corruption. As corruption is endemic throughout the system. It takes two to tango.

    Surface Forces: India Becomes An Exporter

    June 2, 2016: India has become an exporter of large warships. It was only in 2014 that India put its first locally made large warship (a Kamorta class corvette) into service. Now the builder has got the first export order from the Philippines. This is for smaller version of the Kamorta. The Filipino version will closer to 2,200 tons, 13 percent shorter, be armed with a 76mm gun (and other unspecified weapon) and Indian electronics (including a battle management and fire control system) and cost less than half what the Kamortas go for. India won on price and these Filipino corvettes may be built at a loss simply to help build an export market.

    It was in mid-2014 that the Indian Navy received the first (INS Kamorta) of four Indian made corvettes. These are the first locally built modern surface warships for India. The Kamortas are 3,400 ton ships that are 109 meters (355 feet) long, have a crew 193 and a top speed of 46 kilometers an hour. They are optimized for anti-submarine warfare and are armed with a 76.2mm gun, two 30mm multi-barrel anti-missile autocannon, two multi (12) barrel 212mm anti-submarine rocket launchers, 16 Barak anti-missile/aircraft missiles and six torpedo tubes. It has a hull mounted sonar and carries a helicopter that can be armed with four anti-submarine torpedoes. The ship has stealthy features (small radar signature and more difficult for submarine sonar to detect as well.) By 2016 two of the Kamorta class ships are in service with the Indian Navy and two more are being built.

    India has long bought Russian warships and has studied their construction and operating characteristics carefully. In 2012-13 Russia delivered the last of three Talwar class frigates. These were to be the last imported surface ships India will buying. India ordered these three ships (for $1.6 billion) in 2006. The 4,000 ton P-17 project Talwar's are 124.5 meters (386 feet) long, carry 24 anti-aircraft and eight anti-ship missiles, four torpedo tubes, as well as a 100mm gun, short range anti-missile autocannon, a helicopter, and anti-submarine weapons (rockets and missiles). The ship has a very complete set of electronics gear, except for a troublesome Indian sonar. There is a crew of 180. All of the Talwars are equipped with eight Indian BrahMos anti-ship missile each. The Talwar is a modified version of the Russian Cold War era Krivak IV design.

    The P-17A "stealth" frigates are the same size as the original three Talwars India ordered in the 1990s. The Stealthy Talwars have their superstructure changed so as to reduce the radar signature (making the ship less likely to show up on enemy radars). Improved weapons and electronics are installed as well, making it a more formidable warship than the original Talwars. India is not ordering any more warships from Russia, as it has developed the capability to build what it needs locally. This now includes aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines as well as aircraft carriers, frigates and corvettes.

    You are so childish. Anything to do with the Italian company has to be nipped in the bud. There are alternatives available.
