The Defence Research and Development Organisation testing range for radar-based electronic warfare systems in Chitradurga will be operational by 2011. Speaking on the sidelines of an electronics warfare workshop organised by the Association of Old Crows (AOC), India Chapter, Chief Controller (R&D) Dr Prahalad said: “We have already completed the groundwork and work on the runway is scheduled to begin soon. With considerable progress in the work, we are looking at inaugurating the 4,000-acre aeronautical test range next year.” Besides, testing range proposed in Tandur near Hyderabad will also be completed by 2013, he said adding that the estimated cost of the ranges is between Rs 400-Rs 500 crore each. Once both these ranges are operational, experimental and research and development tests can be conducted.
