The deployment of these cutting-edge radar technologies offers unparalleled advantages and showcases versatile applications across multiple sectors, underscoring HFCL’s unwavering dedication to innovation and excellence in the defense industry.

In its initial offering, HFCL, through its 90%-owned subsidiary, Raddef Private Limited, a R&D enterprise specializing in cutting-edge radars and RF solutions, has designed a range of surveillance radars catered to meet diverse operational needs. These radars employ frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) technology, offering numerous advantages over other radar technologies, including high accuracy, low power consumption, and resistance to interference. Apart from the application of ground surveillance for border and parametric security, FMCW radars offer a wide range of applications, from weather radar to navigation systems. Their unique capability to simultaneously measure distance and velocity positions them as essential technology for various modern applications. With diverse variants catering to specific operational requirements, these surveillance radars are exceptionally versatile, portable, and deployable across challenging and hostile terrains.

HFCL is also actively engaged in the development of a state-of-the-art drone detection radar, poised to be an important component of modern drone detection systems. HFCL’s ongoing cutting-edge research and development initiatives extend to a diverse range of radar technologies. These include Doppler Weather Radars, Threat Emulators, LTE-based Passive Radars, Fog and Foliage Penetration Radars, Coastal Surveillance Radars, Avalanche Detection Radars, Altimeters, and more. These innovative radar systems, spanning various technologies, play a pivotal role in meeting the operational and functional needs of users across diverse sectors and domains.

The worldwide market for surveillance radars is expected to reach USD 12 billion per annum by 2030, up from the current market size of USD 6.87 billion per annum.
