Spearhead Research and Development in the field of Airborne Electronic Warfare and Mission Avionics to achieve self-reliance in these critical technology areas


To conduct Research and Development in avionics technologies in order to equip Indian Armed Forces with Mission-effective aeronautical systems enhanced by
1) Current and Futuristic airborne EW systems
2) State of art Mission Avionics

Defence Avionics Research Establishment (DARE) initially started as a Project Laboratory - Advanced Systems Integration and Evaluation Organisation (ASIEO), which was established in 1986 at Bangalore to pursue the goal of enhancing the operational capabilities of Indian Air Force through modern technologies. Over the last decade, DARE has made rapid progress in the areas of Airborne Electronic Warfare, Airborne Processors and Testing & Evaluation of Electronic Warfare (EW) systems. It has implemented concepts in concurrent engineering in partnership with the Industry in order to achieve shorter design to induction time frames and seamless transfer of technology. DARE has two major wings - the Electronic Warfare (EW) wing and the Mission Avionics Wing (MAW).

AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015 Certification of DARE
