India has secured a deal in Armenia to supply locating radars, India Today reported citing government sources.

The contract worth over USD 40 million to supply four Swathi weapon locating radars has been signed with Armenia and supplies have also started.

The contract is for four Swathi weapon locating radars which provide fast, automatic and accurate location of enemy weapons like mortars, shells and rockets in a 50 km range.

The radar can simultaneously handle multiple projectiles fired from different weapons at different locations. The Indian Army is also using the same radars for its operations along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Armenians also carried out trials of Russian and Polish systems which were found to be good, but they finally chose the Indian system for acquisition, said sources.
