BENGALURU (PTI): Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju on Thursday flagged off the global launch of the OIS-AT's four hi-tech dual use radar systems at the 'Aero India' show here.

"I am pleased that an Indian defence and aerospace company from the MSME sector has taken the initiative to develop these radars. I wish them all success and hope we will see more such innovations from Indian MSME organisations," the Minister said after the launch.

OIS Advanced Technology Chairman & Managing Director Sanjay Bhandari said through this launch the company has been able to successfully showcase its research and development (R&D) and manufacturing capabilities.

The dual-use radar systems are capable of 3D bird detection and deterrence, besides UAV tracker and foliage penetration. The company said its 3D Bird Detection, Tracking and Monitoring and Deterrence Radar System is a global first.

Bhandari explained that there are bird detection radars but those don't come quipped with deterrence capabilities.

"Our technology uses bio-acoustics (sound) and an eye-safe laser both of which are automatically controlled by the radar system," he said.

The company has already bid for the Indian Air Force's requirements for such a radar.

It has also designed, developed and manufactured another industry's first - the 3D multi-function, multi-mode UAV Detection and Tracking and Air Surveillance Radar System.

Unlike most air surveillance radars today, it includes a unique Sense-N-Avoid feature to identify UAVs that may be on a collision course, allowing the controller to take remedial action, the firm said.

The company claims that it can detect a small UAV up to 25 kms and fighter aircraft up to 60 kms.

But one of the most interesting features is the Foliage Penetration Minefield, IED and Dismount Detection Radar System which the company claims can identify people with weapons and other assets hidden under foliage from a fixed-wing aircraft or UAV installed with this radar.

With product availability slated for year-end, this system can also detect mines and buried IEDs to help sanitise routes and discover minefields, it said.
