The Naval Science and Technological Laboratory (NSTL) handed over the 3MW Diesel Engine Infrared Suppression Signature System (IRSS) to the Indian Navy here on Wednesday.

As part of the programme, a prototype was handed over by Dr. Samir V Kamat, Director General (Naval Systems & Materials), to Vice Admiral Sandeep Naithani, Chief of Material, Integrated Naval Headquarters, New Delhi.

Speaking on the occasion, Vice Admiral Sandeep said that stealth technology was a key factor for survivability of ships at sea.

Dr. Kamat said handing over the IRSS systems to the Indian Navy signified a major milestone in achieving ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ in the design and development of naval stealth systems.

NSTL Director Y. Sreenivas Rao said that the NSTL designed and developed systems had been integrated onboard INS Vikrant, which was under construction at Cochin Shipyard Limited, Kochi, and had completed all performance trials successfully.
