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.
