The Indian Navy is paying a lot of attention to increasing its Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. A contract to enhance its ISR firepower was signed with a local manufacturer this week.
The Indian Navy on Wednesday announced the signing of a contract for the procurement of an indigenous High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS) with a local manufacturer that would bolster its surveillance capabilities in a big way.

"Contract for design & development of indigenous High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS) for the Indian Navy, under the iDEX initiative, signed with M/s New Space Research & Technologies. Enhancing the Navy's prowess with extended surveillance period, this is a strong move towards ensuring Future Proof Navy in consonance with GoI's vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat," the Navy said in a statement.

Having high-end technology for ISR purposes is considered crucial in the current geopolitical context, especially to keep a 100 percent vigil on the adversary.

In this regard, the Indian Navy is fast augmenting the latest gizmos and gadgets in its fleet of naval vessels and submarines besides inducting UAVs in its arsenal.

Last week, the country's premier defense research body, the Defence Research and Development Organisation, successfully carried out the maiden test of the domestically developed High Endurance Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (HEAUV), bolstering its ability to both monitor and attack enemy submarines submerged under water.
