Indian Navy releases RfI for ASW protection system

The Indian Navy is seeking to procure an integrated anti-submarine defensive suite (IADS) from an Indian vendor, according to a request for information (RfI) issued by the navy's Directorate of Staff Requirements.

The IADS is envisaged to be a fully integrated system with a towed array sonar, anti-torpedo decoy system and associated fire control system.

The RfI's publication suggests that an earlier tender for a similar towed array sonar has been cancelled. It states the system should be capable of simultaneous active and passive operations in both littoral and deep waters to detect submarines and the automatic detection of torpedoes while searching, classifying and tracking submarine contacts in a 360° azimuth.
