Tata Power’s Strategic Engineering Division (Tata Power SED) wins a Night Vision order from MHA for supply of Hand Held Thermal Imagers
- Delhi & Mumbai, May 02, 2016
Tata Power’s Strategic Engineering Division (Tata Power SED) has received an order from the Border Security Force (BSF), Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India for the supply of Rajak TBC DN-1, its indigenously developed Hand Held Thermal Imaging Systems (HHTI) (Cooled Version).
BSF is one of the premier forces of India using HHTIs for border surveillance and has selected through a global tender Tata Power SED’s Rajak TBC DN-1 Multi-Function Thermal Imager after extensive field trials.
Rajak TBC DN-1 is a ‘Created in India’ product designed, developed & manufactured at Tata Power SED’s Optronics Facility in Bangalore. While this gives impetus to Govt. of India’s ‘Make in India’ campaign, it also provides end-user the facility to reduce the repair downtime substantially, as the entire maintenance and repair will be done in-house. Until now, our forces like Indian Army and BSF used to source the HHTIs from abroad and the downtime between repairs could even be in years.
Tata Power SED’s RAJAK-TBC DN-1 is an advanced Hand Held Thermal Imager meant for Long Range Day / Night Surveillance application. It combines multiple sensors such as Thermal Imager, Day Sensor, Digital Magnetic Compass and GPS Receiver, all in a single compact housing.
Rajak TBC DN-1 uses state of the art Cooled Thermal Imaging sensors with resolution 640 x 512 pixels @ pitch of 15µm and has the capability to detect vehicles at upto 9kms. Additional facilities like wirelessly transferring/ streaming day/ night imagery video to a console upto 5 kms, image/ video storage and Day/ Night Fusion substantially increase the surveillance & reconnaissance capability for soldiers. With the network link integrated it is a true force multiplier.
On receipt of the prestigious Order, Rahul Chaudhry, CEO of Tata Power SED said that “Tata Power SED is proud to make available this Third Generation, indigenously designed and manufactured sight to the Border Security Force and is looking forward to providing this latest technology to the Indian Army who’s soldiers are burdened with older generation equipment. The new DPP 2016 has many provisions that encourage companies such as ours and we expect MoD to quickly implement their newly introduced IDDM procurement in letter & spirit and get this world class indigenous equipment in the hands of our soldiers.”
Tata Power SED has consistently advocated going beyond “Make in India” to “Create in India”, with world-class Indigenous Products that not only create substantive self-reliance but also result in significant job creation. Rajak TBC DN-1 embodies this code.
