04 April 2017

India's Ministry of Defence (MoD) approved procurements worth INR8.6 billion (USD132.3 million) on 3 April that include 100 Israel Aerospace Industries/Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Barak-1 short-range surface-to-air missiles (SR-SAMs) for INR5 billion for the Indian Navy (IN), MoD officials told Jane's .

The procurement approval by the MoD's Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) took place ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Israel in July 2017: the first ever by an Indian prime minister.

The DAC also sanctioned the import from the United States of anti-mine equipment, as well as of expendable Bathy thermographic systems for the IN for INR3.1 billion to detect underwater temperature changes.
