  • The radar was inaugurated by Lieutenant General Tarun Kumar Aich, General Officer Commanding of Sukna-based 33 Corps at the forward posts of the Army at an altitude of 15,000 ft. in North Sikkim.
  • The AMR has the capability to detect avalanches within 3 seconds of their trigger and will act as a life saviour for troops along with reducing damage to property in high-altitude areas.
  • The AMR can permanently scan the targeted slope for avalanche release and can see through snow, and fog as well as at the night, making it an all-weather solution.
  • The radar is also equipped with an alarm system, and warning measures, and enables automatic control to deal with an avalanche emergency.
  • The radar has been designed and developed by the Defence Geo-informatics and Research Establishment (DGRE).
  • DGRE is a one-of-its-kind laboratory which is involved in forecasting and mitigation of avalanche hazards, under the Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) and was established in 2020 by merging the Snow & Avalanche Study Establishment (SASE) and Defence Terrain Research Laboratory (DTRL). The headquarters of DGRE is in Chandigarh.
