India will invest $ 1.5 billon on its air bases

India`s Defence Ministry is planning a $1.5 billion upgrade for its 30 military airports and their air traffic control systems.
The Air Force is also buying air defense gear, a senior service official said. He gave no details about the equipment sought but said the Air Force likely will spend more than $1 billion on it.
The companies invited to bid are: Thales (France), Lockheed Martin (USA), Siemmens (Germany), Clex (Italy), Terma (UK), Tata Power and Nelco (India). That phase will include the supply, installation, testing and integration of equipment subsystems.
The airfields include Adampur, AFA, Agra, Ambala, Bagdogra, Bareilly, Bhatinda, Bhuj, Bidar, Chabua, Chandigarh, Gorakhpur, Gwalior, Halwara, Hasimara, Hindon, Jaisalmer, Jamnagar, Jodhpur, Jorhat, KKD, Nal, Naliya, Pathankot, Pune, Sirsa, Suratgarh, Tezpur, Uttarlai and Yelahanka.
Bidders must include offsets worth 30 percent of their bid, and must agree to complete the work within 3,5 years of contract signature.
One airfield will become a model airbase and test bed and each airfield must receive new lighting, automated air traffic control management system, instrument landing system, distance measuring equipment and a Doppler very-high-frequency omni-range navigation system that works up to 15,000 feet.
The winning bidder must also supply six mobile airfield lighting systems to fill in when airfield lights fail, one mobile air traffic control system, and facilities to train people to run and fix the systems.
