NEW DELHI (PTI): The Defence Ministry has cleared proposals worth over Rs 1,500 crore for procurement of various systems including Israeli anti-missile radars for the Navy's warships.

The proposals cleared by the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) headed by Defence Minister A K Antony include approval for the procurement of Anti-missile Doppler Radar (AMDR) from Israel for around Rs 300 crore, Navy sources said on Wednesday.

The radar would be deployed with the weapon systems on-board naval ships to protect them from enemy missiles, they said.

The apex decision-making body of the Ministry also cleared the proposal for establishing repair facilities in collaboration with Russian firms for armament of submarines of the Navy, they said.

The submarines in the Indian fleet are of Russian-origin and the weapon systems fitted on them are also mainly from that country only.

The DAC also approved a proposal worth over Rs 850 crore for setting up Mobile Communication System for the Army formations deployed in Jammu and Kashmir.

The system would enable the Corps operating there to communicate with each other through a dedicated network, the sources said.

The communication system would be developed by public sector undertaking Bharat Electronics Limited.
