panies were allowed to establish joint ventures with foreign companies, who were limited to 26 percent ownership. This enabled newer players, such as Tata Power, to enter the EW market. India’s decision to broaden its EW acquisition base to the private sector was not a repudiation of the self-reliance policy or organizations like DRDO or BEL. Rather, it was an effort to make them more efficient and competitive and to create vehicles in which foreign investment and technology could enter India. India’s armed forces are certainly pleased with the situation, as they can buy from a wider range of sources. These reforms are the beginning of an ongoing privatization process that will evolve over many more years, if not decades. DESIGNED IN INDIA India has for decades built up its homegrown EW infrastructure. Within DRDO, this includes the Defence Electronics Research Lab (DLRL) in Hyderabad, which has been in operation since 1956, and the Defence Avionics Research Establishment (DARE) in Bangalore. These two labs have been the starting point for many of India’s major EW programs, and they still are playing this role today. DLRL was the first DRDO lab to pursue EW programs, and it is still the main EW developer decades later. Among its more recent initiatives, DLRL has developed a family of airborne, shipboard and submarine EW systems for the Indian Navy under the Sangraha project. It also has collaborated with the Indian Army’s Corps of Signals to develop the Samyukta family of electronics intelligence (ELINT) and communications intelligence (COMINT) systems, as well as radar- and communications-jamming systems. India’s Air Force uses DLRL-developed EW systems, such as the Tranquil Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) and Tempest jammer, on several of its combat aircraft. DLRL also maintains a large test and evaluation facility, its Electronic System Engineering Centre (ELSEC). One of the areas i in which DLRL is currently concentrating is the development of electronic support i measures (ESM) receivers and jammers m for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), f such as the Air Force’s Gagan and Rustam s UAVs. It also has developed a family of U vehicle-mounted communications jamv mers to defeat improvised explosive dem vices (IEDs). v DARE is among DRDO’s newest labs. It was established in 1986 as a smaller I project laboratory and achieved full p DRDO lab status in 2001. It concentrates D on airborne EW systems and mission o avionics. It has delivered several RWR a and jamming systems to the Indian Air a Force, and it has aggressively pursued F partnerships with foreign EW manup facturers. In 2006, it inked a deal with f EADS Defence and Security (Munich, E Germany) to work together on developG ment of a missile warning system. DARE m also has launched a partnership with Elisra of Israel to develop a range of EW systems technology for Israeli and Indian aircraft. Last year, DARE opened a new campus in Bangalore, as well as a new indoor antenna test range. The Journal of Electronic Defense | February 2009 27 MANUFACTURED IN INDIA Just as DARE has established itself as a new EW developer alongside DLRL, the dynamics of India’s EW manufacturing base also is poised to change. Most of the EW systems developed by DLRL and DARE historically have been manufactured by a government-owned company, such as BEL or Electronics Corporation of India Ltd. (ECIL). BEL is the undisputed giant within India’s EW industry. Its product range extends beyond EW and includes communications systems, ground-based and naval radars, night vision systems and networked C4I systems. In the EW market, it has been involved in most of India’s major EW programs since the 1980s. Last summer, it opened a new facility for the production
