Indian Navy inducts indigenously developed technologies for evading detection of shipsNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:09 am ICT by admin
Among a variety of new products that Visakhapatnam-based Naval Science and Technological Laboratory (NSTL) has developed are Radar Transparent Ladder and Camouflage Screens that would help the warships avoid being detected by enemies’ surveillance systems.
Beside these, other new products developed by the NSTL include acoustics enclosures, which are specially designed to reduce the noise transmitted by the ship engines. Acoustic silencers and double stage vibration isolation system would also help in reducing the amount of sound level created by the ships.
The Indian Navy has been acquiring such technologies from different countries like Russia, and in recent years due to the indigenous development of such technologies, the Navy has been able to reduce its expenditure on these products significantly.
The NSTL is looking forward to achieve self-reliance in this critical arena too.
DRDO chief Dr. Sivathanu Pillai officially handed over these new products to the Indian Navy for induction today.
The induction was carried out only after a series of evaluation tests and extensive laboratory tests.
The NSTL’s other achievement in developing technologies for the Indian Navy include the development of a light weight torpedo, which is under production, and the laboratory is currently also working on a heavy weight torpedo.
The Light Weight Torpedo is an anti-submarine weapon, which can be fired from a helicopter very close to enemy submarine to have a definite kill probability. The torpedoes can also be fired in a quick salvo from surface ships using torpedo Triple Tube Launchers (TTL). (ANI)
