Contrary to popular belief around some blogs, it is not BEL which has won the contract to install a countrywide coastal surveillance system, but Sweden's Saab (over 74 firm and 12 optional locations). BEL has only thus far stated that it is expecting a contract award early next month, but the contract award was announced on November 24 by Saab (see: http://feed.ne.cision.com/wpyfs/00/00/00/00/00/12/EB/CC/wkr0001.pdf)
What BEL had been offering was the wholly imported Israeli ELTA-built X-band EL/M-2226 radar (20km-range) coipled to a LORROS optronic sensor. The Saab-delivered system will have dual band (S and X) band antennae with a 50km range.

It's BEL. I am part of that project. We won the order long time back and the trials are over finally. If you have any doubts, welcome to our factory. And, who are you, the great defence expert? Shame on you guys who are anti-DPSUs. Livefist, please check facts before they are posted.

To Brij@7.45PM: Is that so? When was the tender issued? When was ther RFI issued? If you have any doubts about BEL losing the tender competition, then you should read this:
Bangalore-based Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), the public sector defence behemoth, expects to secure contract for the first phase of the coastal surveillance system for Rs700-800 crore from the Coast Guard by next month, a top company official said. “We are going ahead with the initiative, which we have taken on our own using internal funds, because this is very very crucial project for the country’s security,” Ashwani Kumar Datt, chairman and managing director, BEL said.

If you're so concerned about 'anti-DPSU' postures, then perhaps you ought to start by telling your company's CMD (if you indeed are part of the project) not to tell lies to the media in the first place!!!

Defence and security company Saab has received an order from the Indian Maritime Authority, DGLL (Directorate General of Lighthouses and Lightships) for supply of a system for coastal surveillance for the entire Indian coast......
