indian armyIndia’s Defence Ministry has cleared contracts worth 2,420 crore rupees for Navy and Army which includes the procurement of P-8I Training Solution and Low Intensity Conflict Electronic Warfare System (LICEWS).

Defence Ministry said, the P-8I Training Solution, along with 10-year comprehensive maintenance service, will be bought from Boeing for around one thousand 950 crore rupees. This training solution accurately simulates P-8I aircraft and mission systems. It will help Indian Navy train and realistically rehearse for sophisticated missions involving P-8I aircraft, at a fraction of the cost of live aircraft training.

The P-8I aircraft is equipped for long range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in support of broad area, maritime and littoral operations. The aircraft is capable of thrusting a punitive response and maintaining a watch over India’s immediate and extended areas of interest.

The procurement of LICEWS will be done from Bharat Electronics Limited for 470 crore rupees. This system will equip Indian Army with upgraded communications infrastructure to effectively deal with advanced communications systems being used by terrorist groups.
