L&T new Air Defence Fire Control Radar system is a state-of-the art and compact system which allow the user to control the firing of two air defense guns.

The ADFCR radar system consists of a one three dimensional (3D) Surveillance Radar and one Tracking Radar systems, Electro Optical (EO) sensor for passive tracking, a Command & Control Station (including Weapon Control Unit) and an integral power supply system.

The 3D surveillance radar is a land-based version of Airbus' TRS-3D radar, offered in cooperation with its Indian partner L&T. The surveillanc radar is the Elta's ELM 2026B very short range air defence radar system.

The AFDCR is able to transmit data to MANPADs in a range of 8km over line and radio. The entire system is mounted on a single trailer in a modular configuration with its own captive power supply. The system can self-sustain for up to 8 hours. A nuclear, biological and chemical pathogen proof air-conditioned shelter is provided for the personnel as well as electronics.

The Indian army has a large requirement for ground radar. It has sought bids for 66 Air Defence Fire Control Radars (ADFCRs) to begin the process of replacing as many as 450 older radars in its inventory.

L&T is India's leading company in the private sector for the supply of defence equipments and systems. It has been involved in the development of defense systems for over 20 years. Its current product range, built largely through in-house research & development, includes an array of marine engineering systems, electrical and control systems, naval weapon launch systems with fire control, C4I and missile systems, etc.
