Spanish Defence Company INDRA Installs First Naval Version of Advanced LANZA 3D Radar on Indian Navy P17A Stealth Frigates

In a major upgrade to India’s P17A Stealth Frigate Program, Spanish Defence System & Information Technology company INDRA Sistemas S.A installed the naval version of LANZA 3D radar on an Indian Navy front line warship (P-17A).

After successfully passing the Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) the company has begun installing the first of the 23 radars that it will equip the Indian Naval ships exponentially increasing their capabilities.

As per Official Press release of INDRA, “This milestone is part of the contract signed by the company in 2020 with the Indian company TATA Advanced Systems Limited (TASL), within the framework of a technology transfer program. This provides for the delivery by Indra of a total of three complete radars, plus the core elements of its system for another 20 radars, destined for ships, which TASL will complete and integrate locally.

After designing and producing the first radar at Indra’s facilities in Madrid, the system passed the factory acceptance tests (FAT) at CEAR, the Radioelectric Analysis Center of the Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA) in November, to be subsequently shipped to India, where installation has begun once the ship has become available.”

Indra has adapted the most advanced version of the Lanza-N radar, based on the one installed in the Spanish ship Juan Carlos I, to the regulatory requirements of India, for example, in the environmental field, to guarantee its optimal operation even in high humidity and extreme heat conditions. This project confirms the export potential of the Lanza-N radar, a high-tech Spanish solution for surface ships, designed as a long-range, modular, solid-state pulsed tactical radar, with all the equipment associated with the Lanza-N fully integrated for a naval operation.
The primary function of radar is the detection of aircraft within the instrumented coverage volume, even in adverse conditions. It also includes the integration of a Secondary Surveillance Radar (IFF/SSR).

‘Secondary RADAR suite but Highly Capable’

The P17A Frontline Stealth Frigates Will feature this LTR25 LANZA 3D radar as a Secondary radar suite which would be a long-range radar capable of operating in a dense electronic environment and features a range of over 250 nmi (460 km; 290 mi), with the capability to track various aerial targets – including fighter aircraft and ballistic missiles.

‘LANZA 3D Radar Passes NATO tactical ballistic missile detection and tracking capabilities Tests’

Indra’s Lanza 3D deployable air defence radar (DADR) has successfully cleared NATO’s tactical ballistic missile detection and tracking tests cementing its reliability. Clearance of these tests certifies the Lanza 3D sensor’s tactical ballistic missile detection and tracking capabilities back in the year 2022.

The system delivered satisfactory results and showcased accurate target detection and tracking capabilities during all tests.

The Nato tests took place at the Radio-Electric Assessment and Analysis Center (CEAR) of the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA) in Guadalajara, Mexico.

During the tests, the radar’s track initiation and target tracking capabilities were tested and evaluated.

Indra noted that the system predicted the different trajectory parameters required to trigger ‘offensive, defensive and intelligence’ actions.

A Nato Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) certification and testing tool was used to check the missile detection and tracking capabilities of the radar.

The tool comprises a ground mission control station and a system hosted on a medium-sized drone, which simulates the radar signal’s return reflected by a ballistic missile.

‘Advanced Long Range Radar Technology that can track objects in Space’.

With more than forty years working on the development of these systems, Indra has exported its radars to the five continents and is the main supplier of NATO. The protection of European airspace, the survival of the Eurofighter and the ships of various navies, and even the protection of orbiting satellites depend on the company’s mastery of this technology.

It has also developed one of the most powerful radars in Europe and the world, intended for space surveillance, capable of detecting objects in orbit more than 2,000 kilometers from Earth and which is responsible for protecting launches, satellites, and the international space station.

In this area, Indra has signed a collaboration agreement with the Indian company, Centum Electronics, to present a joint proposal to the Indian Space Agency (ISRO) to manufacture a radar for observing and tracking objects in space with which to protect the country’s space assets.

The agreement is aligned with the “Make India” strategy of the country’s government, which supports the formation of this type of strategic alliances between local companies and leading companies.
