Indian Navy To Upgrade Poseidon-8I and Mig-29K Fighter Jets



The Indian Navy’s major air stations are undergoing extensive upgradation in the perimeter security. The upgradation process in the Indian Navy will include valuable assets like the Poseidon-8I long-range maritime patrol aircraft and Mig-29K fighter jets.

The Officials stated that Indian Navy had signed a Rs 700 crore contract for the naval airfield integrated security system with Bharat Electronics, a Public Sector Undertaking (PSU).

The contract for the larger project to improve security at the 54 main flying bases of Indian Air Force (IAF) valued at Rs 150 crore per airbase is still pending.

The Indian Navy’s new integrated security system will incorporate “smart fences” with CCTV cameras, motion-detectors, infra-red devices, thermal and other sensors, backed by other surveillance devices and drones.

“This comprehensive multi-layered security system, with real-time monitoring through state-of-the-art command and control centres, will help guard the naval air stations much better against terror attacks,” a source said.

As per the media reports, the new security system will be installed in naval air stations located at Visakhapatnam (INS Dega), Mumbai (INS Shikra), Arakkonam (INS Rajali) and Goa (INS Hansa) by January 2020 while Kochi (INS Garuda) and Port Blair (INS Utkrosh) will get it by July 2020.
