Mahindra Telephonics develops world class indigenous Mobile Surveillance & Protection System (M-SPS) as a Make in India initiative

Chennai, April 13, 2018. In a first of its kind achievement, Mahindra Telephonics has developed an indigenous mobile, all weather, all terrain M-SPS Platform with multiple sensors integrated with a Command and Control System developed in-house. The M-SPS can be operated independently or in a networked environment. The mobile platform is ideal for border protection and surveillance by military and para-military forces. It can also be used for critical infrastructure security and covert support for manoeuvring forces.

Depending upon customer requirements, the M-SPS can also be configured to support launch and control of drones equipped with smart optical payloads for covering obscured areas. Optional systems also include SIGINT receivers and Communication Jammers enhancing its versatility and making it a highly potent force multiplier in any operational environment.

Mr. S P Shukla, Chairman, Mahindra Telephonics and Group President-Aerospace & Defence, Mahindra Group, observed that “I am delighted with this significant achievement which is a result of n-house capabilities of the company. This is part of our efforts to offer state of the art, cost-effective solutions for global and Indian customers, and address the Make in India initiatives of the Indian Government. I congratulate the CEO and his R&D team on developing a cost-effective technology solution to the nation's surveillance & security requirements at the borders and elsewhere.”
