DRDO ANNUAL REPORT 2016

by the military personnel deployed at Eastern      conducted to evaluate the performance of new
Ladakh sector. Range more than 12 km has           LCD monitor and display over six hours of
been achieved.                                     continuous operation.

Low Cost Surveillance Equipment (LCSE)             LWIR Type Two Super Lattice Detector (T2SL)
                                                   and Thermal Imager Under IIMC (T2SL_TI)
    Two units of LCSE has been realized and
were handed over to Northern command                   Three numbers of LWIR Type Two Super
(Army) for exploitation. After successful trials,  Lattice (T2SL) detector were realized through
Northern Command has issued RFP for six            M/s SCD, Israel by joint funding between
nos. of LCSE to production agency.                 DRDO and MOD Israel and based upon this
                                                   detector IRDE has realized a thermal imager.
EO sub systems for Integrated Coastal
Surveillance System (ICSS)

    Three electro-optical subsystems (EOS)
for ICSS are installed at three different remote
locations at PXE, Balasore. Trials for Proof of
Concept (PoC) completed.
