DRDO seeks foreign help for precise target-hitting
(Deccan Herald, 03 March 2003)


Faced with technical snags to develop an indigenous system required for precise target hit­ting, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has sought assistance from foreign scientists, mainly from the former Soviet-bloc nations, to tide over the crisis. Since the last decade, war technologies are moving towards precision bombing and missile hitting in which only a speciuc target is destroyed leav­ing adjacent objects unaffected. Such a system requires auto­matic target recognition devices that can narrow down the range of incoming bombs or missiles within 10 metres for terminal homing, especially when the target is a land based. However, developing the technology indigenously turned out to be a problem for the scientists at Research Centre Imarat (Rd), Hyderabad one of the DRDO labs - that has been entrusted with the job. "What makes it complicated is that the system has to be compatible with missiles flying at supersonic speed," an RCI scientist, who listed out techni­cal problems to foreign scien­tists last week here, told Deccan Herald.

Though worldwide, satellite technology is preferred for such systeins, DRDO wants to avoid it due to two reasons. "A typical system based on Indian satellites can give an accuracy of approximately one km which can be further improved to less than 100 metres using GPS. But we pre­fer to depend on US satellite based global positioning system (GPS) technology solely on the apprehension that the access may be denied," he said on the condition of anonymity. As an alternative, the Indian defence scientists prefer using millimetre range wave image sensors that can be used in tan­dem with the satellite technolo~ gy for achieving less. than 10-metre resolution in both cross and down range. But due to the unavailability of some of the key components needed to realise the automatic target recognition and to save time as well, DRDO was looking for some foreign collaborations, though the agency is yet to receive any confirmation.
