 Mahindra Telephonics Integrated Systems (MTIS), a joint venture between Mahindra Defense Systems and  US0based Telephonics Corporation, has initiated the manufacture of the RDR Series of Airborne Weather Radars at their Prithla facility near Delhi. This is the first airborne radar manufactured in the private sector in India.

Initial transfer of technology was for the manufacture of transducers used for both commercial and aerospace applications. Over 16,000 have been produced since December 2013. MTIS manufactured the first airborne weather radar assembly in March 2015.  
“MTIS continues to make significant progress in its charter to build an indigenous capability to support aerospace and defence programs leveraging the advanced technologies offered by our partner Telephonics,” said SP Shukla, Member of the Group Executive Board of Mahindra & Mahindra Limited and Group President, Aerospace and Defence.
“Manufacturing of our RDR airborne weather radar is a key milestone. We are pleased with both the progress MTIS has made and with the support of our joint venture partner, Mahindra and Mahindra,” expressed Joseph Battaglia, President and CEO of Telephonics.
