Kadet Defence Systems completes delivery of aerial targets to Indian Army
Kadet Defence Systems (P) Ltd recently announced that it has successfully completed delivery of 70 JX2 Aerial Targets along with spares, ground support equipment and training aids.
The JX2 Aerial Target System is a versa- tile training aid for air defence gunnery and missile practice and has been supplied in the sleeve tow configuration pursuant to a contract entered into in May 2010 with the Ministry of Defence, India for 350 Aerial targets, spares, ground support equipment and training services.
The deliveries were preceded by extensive quality assurance tests, confirmatory Flight and Environmental trials.
“We created history by being able to secure the first UAS Contract to the Indian private industry and then successfully deliver our product which once again reaffirms our commitment to the users” said Avdhesh Khaitan, KDS CEO and Founder. “This contract gives us a strong foothold into the emerging Aerial Targets segment in India and further enables us to introduce our JX3 Jet Powered Aerial Target to address emerging threats”.
The JX range of Aerial Targets are comprised of the propeller driven JX2 Aerial Target and the jet powered JX3 Aerial Target. The systems can be configured to emulate various threat perceptions and can carry various payloads including IR flares, smokes, luneberg lense, chaff and miss distance indicators. The Aerial Targets can also be retrofitted with tow systems to economise weapon training and development.
