NEW DELHI (PTI): The Indian Navy has inducted an advanced anti-torpedo decoy system called 'Maareech' that is capable of being fired from all frontline ships.

'Maareech' has been designed and developed indigenously by the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and it is capable of detecting, locating and neutralizing incoming torpedo.

In a release on Friday, the Navy said, "The prototype of this system installed onboard a nominated naval platform had successfully completed all user evaluation trials and demonstrated the features as per the Naval Staff Qualification Requirements."

This induction not only stands testimony to the joint resolve of the Indian Navy and DRDO towards indigenous development of defence technology, but has also given a major fillip to the government's 'Make in India' initiative and the country's resolve to become 'atmanirbhar' (self-reliant) in niche technology, the Navy said.

Bharat Electronics Limited, a defence PSU, would undertake the production of this decoy system, the Navy stated.

"Anti - Submarine warfare capability of the Indian Navy has received a major boost today with the conclusion of a contract for advanced torpedo decoy system Maareech capable of being fired from all frontline warships," it added.
