NEW DELHI: The Army now wants 20 new avalanche rescue radars on a fast-track basis from abroad to ensure it can quickly locate soldiers who get buried under snow during natural calamities in high-altitude areas along the borders with China and Pakistan.
The tender or RFP (request for proposal) for the emergency procurement of the avalanche rescue radars, along with 3,000 hand-held detectors and other accessories, specifies the Army wants the deliveries to be completed within 12 months of signing contract or before August 31 next year, whichever is earlier. The contract will include deliveries to the field ordnance depot at the Northern Command headquarters in Udhampur and training to some personnel.
