Electronics and Communication Systems (ECS) Cluster has a mandate to design and develop electronic, electro-optical and laser based sensors and systems. The Cluster consists of laboratories DARE, DEAL, DLRL, IRDE, LASTEC, LRDE and the Cognitive Technology Lab.
The cluster laboratories have developed state of art technologies in the fields of EW Systems, Radars, Electro-optic Equipment, Laser Sources & sensors, Directed Energy Weapon Systems and Communication Systems used in various Flagship Programmes and platforms of DRDO and ADA viz., Missile programmes, Unmanned Air Vehicles, Airborne Early Warning & Control System, Aerostats, Main Battle Tank, Integrated Coastal Surveillance System and Light Combat Aircraft etc. Apart from this, many of the systems and sensors developed by the Cluster Labs are deployed and are being used by Indian Armed forces and paramilitary services.
To become a Centre of Excellence in the field of EW, DEW, EO, Laser, Radar and Communication Systems and related technologies.
Design, Development, Evaluation and ToT leading to Productionisation and Induction of Advanced EW, DEW, EO, Laser, Radar and Communication Systems and to establish self-reliance in these Critical Technologies.
