The Indian Defence Research Design Organisation (DRDO) has awarded a contract to EADS Defence & Security (DS) to provide developmental support to Indian armed forces.

Under the contract, DS will support the development of the system architecture of the airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) programme.

The support services will have a special emphasis on certification and mission equipment optimisation of the AEW&C aircraft.

Based on a modified EMB-145 jet aircraft, the AEW&C aircraft comprises multiple sensors for surveillance, signal intelligence and electronic warfare.

Designed and developed by DRDO, the airborne platform provides the operator with the capability to communicate with other fighters through ultra-high-frequency data-links during air defence operations.
