DRDO FOR PORTABLE RADAR SIMULATOR
The DRDO is in the market for a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) portable radar simulator to simulate radar threat situations through generated radar emissions to test the efficacy of in-development sensor/warning systems under the Defence Electronics Research Laboratory (DLRL). The system should be capable of generating a minimum of sixteen different radar emissions in a time shared fashion. DRDO has stipulated that each of the parameters of the simulated radar should be fully programmable. The portable system should be able to simulate pulse doppler radar as well. The 2-18 GHz range system needs to be able to create a library of radars, with specific parameters, including pulse, scan, antenna radiation pattern and direction. The DRDO hopes to use the simulator to both test in-development radars and warning systems as well as to improve current systems already integrated on airborne platforms. The simulator needs to have vendor support for a period of 10 years and should be continuously upgradable during that time.
