The Coastal Surveillance System of Indian Coast Guard is aimed at covering the entire Indian coastline in two phases. While Phase I has been successfully established with the network of 46 SCANTER 2001 radar sites, Phase II will cover up the gaps and strengthen it with 38 more SCANTER 2001 radar sites. With the completion of Phase II of the project, Terma will have more than 100 operational land-based radar sites in India.

“Continuing our well-established partnership from Phase I into Phase II, Terma will be providing additional technology transfer to BEL for manufacturing the radars required for CSS Phase II project. Most of the modules/spares etc. will be made by BEL and its vendors in India. The complete installation/commissioning and life cycle support of the radars is also going to be undertaken by BEL,” explains Anupam Mathur, Vice President & General Manager, Terma Asia Pacific. “Terma understands India’s call for self-reliance and its move towards ‘Make-in-India’ and ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ (self-reliant India) and thereby extends its support by adapting to the country’s demand and offering Transfer of Technology (ToT). We are proud of the trust shown by the Indian Coast Guard and BEL in Terma and are looking forward to a successful and strong partnership.”
