All Weather Air Defence Gun System
A high performance family of All Weather Towed and Self Propelled Air Defence Gun System is under development to complement the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) surface-to-air missile systems such as Trishul and Akash. The new gun will feature twin-gun cyclic rate of fire of 2000 rounds per minute aimed to engage and neutralise high speed aircraft, helicopters, remote-piloted combat air vehicles and stand-off weapons. The integrated gun system is expected to have all weather day-night operations with on-mount passive suiteof electro-optic sensors like laser range finders, forward looking infra-red (FLIR), thermal imaging systems and low-light level TV, for tracking and engaging fast flying targets by means of a high precision computerised digital servo control system.
