Indian Army’s Tank Regiments To Get 400 Highly-Secure Jam-Resistant Software Defined Radios From Alpha Design

The Indian Army has ordered over 400 software-defined radios for its armored regiments from Adani-backed Alpha Defense Technologies limited (ADTL).

These 400 SDRs will enable the armored regiments of the Indian Army to securely exchange data and voice with each other.

These SDRs differed from earlier analog radios in being able to operate on multiple bands instead of the single band of earlier analog radios that were susceptible to enemy interception.

Col HS Shankar (Retd), CMD of ADTL said, “Indian Army has taken a huge step in ordering 400 SDR Armored Fighting Vehicles for its tank fleets. We have already signed the contract and production is underway. We have also offered our man pack SDRs and they have already been evaluated”.

These SDRs are developed by ADTL in collaboration with DRDO. The Navy operates Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) manufactured SDRs, while ADTL works for the needs of the Air Force and the Army.

“SDR uses embedded electronics that use high-end software-driven algorithms based on waveforms, enabling high hopping rate, encryption in anti-jamming voice, video data, IP and mobile ad-hoc network,” TOI the report quoted Shankar as saying.

According to the report, ADTL SDRs have already acquired interoperability with another firm’s SDRs used by the IAF, besides working with Israel’s Elbit to enter export markets.
