This marks the beginning of the delivery process for the 23 radars that will be provided to the Indian Navy over the next ten years. The installation follows the successful completion of Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT).

In 2020, Indra signed a contract with TATA Advanced Systems Limited (TASL), a local Indian company, for a technology transfer program. As part of the agreement, Indra will deliver three complete radars and the core components for an additional 20 radars, which TASL will integrate locally. Additionally, an extra reference radar will be provided to support the technology transfer during the maintenance period of 12 and a half years.

The Lanza-N radar is based on the system installed on the Spanish Navy's ship Juan Carlos I but has been adapted to meet India's regulatory requirements, including environmental factors such as high humidity and extreme heat.

It incorporates the latest technological and operational updates from Indra's Lanza radar family, as well as improvements such as increased power for long-range capabilities and remote monitoring of the pressurization system.

Indra's Lanza 3D radar is renowned for its advanced capabilities and has gained recognition as one of the most sophisticated surveillance systems globally.

The company has established itself as a prominent radar manufacturer, not only in the defense sector but also in mobility and air traffic applications. With a state-of-the-art radar factory in Madrid, covering over 7,000 square meters and employing 200 specialized professionals, Indra has been developing radar systems for over four decades.

Its radars are exported worldwide, and the company is a major supplier to NATO. Indra's radar technology plays a crucial role in safeguarding European airspace, supporting the Eurofighter program, naval vessels, satellite protection, and space surveillance.

In addition to its defense endeavors, Indra has partnered with Centum Electronics, an Indian company, to propose a joint project to the Indian Space Agency (ISRO) for manufacturing a radar system dedicated to observing and tracking objects in space.

This collaboration aligns with the Indian government's "Make India" strategy, promoting strategic alliances between local companies and industry leaders. The radar system aims to protect India's space assets and contribute to the country's space exploration efforts.
