Boeing said today that last week it received a key sensor technology for the Indian Navy's P-8I aircraft from Bharat Electronics Ltd. (BEL). In a statement, Boeing said, "BEL delivered the Indian-designed Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) Interrogator -- a battle management system that will enable P-8I aircraft to distinguish friendly aircraft and forces. Boeing will install the system during P-8I final assembly at its facility in Renton, Wash."
To date, indigenous P-8I deliveries also include BEL's Data Link II
communications system, Avantel's mobile satellite system and the Electronic Corporation of India Limited's speech secrecy system.
