BANGALORE: INS Kamorta, the first of the four indigenously-built anti-submarine warfare (ASW) stealth corvettes is being equipped with many state-of-the-art systems from city-based Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL).

 Commissioned into the Indian Navy at Visakhapatnam today, the INS Kamorta has added a new dimension to the ASW capability of the Indian Navy and in particular, the eastern fleet.

BEL has been a silent partner to some of the most advanced programmes of the Indian Navy, has supplied all the major sensors and electronic systems onboard INS Kamorta. These include a 3-D Surveillance Radar (Revathi), Active-cum-Passive Integrated Sonar System (Humsa-NG), EW System Sanket, Combat Management System, Fire Control System (Lynx), Ship Data Network, Composite Communication System (CCS Mk III) and Data Link (Link II). 

INS Kamorta is well equipped to fight in nuclear, biological and chemical warfare conditions. “The Revathi radar from BEL can easily detect any threats emerging out of both air and surface targets. It’s a proven system and has some inbuilt features like ‘track-while-scan of targets, giving edge to the operators,” a BEL official told Express.

Currently, 42 warships are under construction in various shipyards in India and BEL says it will have a key role equipping these assets with smart systems.
