With the ongoing revolution in electronics and communication where innovations are taking place at the blink of eye, it is impossible to keep pace with the emerging trends. Excellence is an attitude that the whole of the human race is born with. It is the environment that makes sure that whether the result of this attitude is visible or otherwise. A well planned, properly executed and evaluated industrial training helps a lot in developing a professional attitude. It provides a linkage between a student and industry to develop an awareness of industrial approach to problem solving, based on a broad understanding of process and mode of operation of organization. During this period, the student gets the real experience for working in the industry environment. Most of the theoretical knowledge that has been gained during the course of their studies is put to test here. Apart from this, the student gets an opportunity to learn the latest technology, which immensely helps in them in building their career. I had the opportunity to have a real experience on many ventures, which increased my sphere of knowledge to great extent. I got a chance to learn many new technologies and also interfaced too many instruments. And all this credit goes to organization Bharat Electronics Limited.

India, as a country, has been very lucky with regard to the introduction of telecom products. The first telegraph link was commissioned between Calcutta and Diamond Harbor in the year 1852, which was invented in 1876. First wireless communication equipment were introduced in Indian Army in the year 1909 with the discovery of Radio waves in 1887 by Hertz and demonstration of first wireless link in the year 1905 by Marconi and Vacuum Tube in 1906. Setting up of radio station for broadcast and other telecom facilities almost immediately after their commercial introduction abroad followed this. After independence of India in 1947 and adoption of its constitution in 1950, the government was seized with the plans to lay the foundations of a strong, self-sufficient modern India. On the industrial front, Industrial Policy Resolution (IPR) was announced in the year 1952. It was recognized that in certain core sectors infrastructure facilities require huge investments, which cannot be met by private sector and as such the idea of Public Sector Enterprises (PSR) was mooted. With telecom and electronics recognized among the core sectors, Indian Telephone Industry, now renamed as ITI Limited, was formed in 1953 to undertake local manufacture of telephone equipment, which were of electro-mechanical nature at that stage. Hindustan Cable Limited was also started to take care of telecom cables. Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) was established in 1954 as a public Sector Enterprise under the administrative control of Ministry of Defence as the fountainhead to manufacture and supply electronics components and equipment. BEL, with a noteworthy history of pioneering achievements, has met the requirement of state-of-art professional electronic equipment for Defence, broadcasting, civil Defence and telecommunications as well as the component requirement of entertainment and medical X-ray industry. Over the years, BEL has grown to a multi-product, multi-unit, and technology driven company with track record of a profit earning PSU. The company has a unique position in India of having dealt with all the generations of electronic component and equipment. Having started with a HF receiver in collaboration with TCSF of France, the companys equipment designs have had a long voyage through the hybrid,


solid-state discrete component to the state of art integrated circuit technology. In the component arena also, the company established its own electron value manufacturing facility. It moved on to semiconductors with the manufacture of germanium and silicon devices and then to the manufacture of Integrated circuits. To keep in pace with the component and technology, its manufacturing and products assurance facilities have also undergone sea change. The design groups have CADD facility, the manufacturing has CNC machines and a Mass Manufacture Facility. QC checks are performed with multi-dimensional profile measurement machines, Automatic testing machines, environmental labs to check extreme weather and other operational conditions. All these facilities have been established to meet the stringent requirements of MIL grade systems. Today BELs infrastructure is spread over nine locations with 29 production divisions having ISO-9001/9002 accreditation. Product mix of the company are spread over the entire Electro-magnetic (EM) spectrum ranging from tiny audio frequency semiconductor to huge radar systems and X-ray tubes on the upper edge of the spectrum. Its manufacturing units have special focus towards the products ranges like Defence Communication, Raders, Optical & Optoelectronics, Telecommunication, sound and Vision Broadcasting, Electronic Components, etc. Besides manufacturing and supply of a wide variety of products, BEL offers a variety of services like Telecom and Radar Systems Consultancy, Contract Manufacturing, Calibration of Test & Measuring Instruments, etc. At the moment, the company is installing MSSR radar at important airports under the modernization of airports plan of National Airport Authority (NAA). BEL has nurtured and built a strong in-house R&D base by absorbing technologies from more than 50 leading companies worldwide and DRDO Labs for a wide range of products. A team of more than 800 engineers is working in R&D. Each unit has its own R&D Division to bring out new products to the production lines. Central Research Laboratory (CRL) at Bangalore and Ghaziabad works as independent agency to undertake contemporary design work on state-of-art and futuristic technologies. About 70% of BELs products are of in-house design. BEL was among the first Indian companies to manufacture computer parts and peripherals


under arrangement with International Computers India Limited (ICIL) in 1970s. BEL assembled a limited number of 1901 systems under the arrangement with ICIL. However, following Governments decision to restrict the computer manufacture to ECIL, BEL could not progress in its computer manufacturing plans. As many of its equipment were microprocessor based, the company continued to develop computers based application, both hardware and software. Most of its software requirements are in real time. EMCCA, software intensive navel ships control and command system is probably one of the first projects of its nature in India and Asia. BEL has won a number of national and international awards for Import Substitution, Productivity, Quality, Safety, Standardization etc. BEL was ranked No. 1 in the field of Electronics and 46th overall among the top 1000 private and public sector undertakings in India by the Business Standard in its special supplement The BS 1000 (1997-98). BEL was listed 3rd among the Mini Ratanas (Category II) by the Government of India, 49th among Asias top 100 worldwide Defence Companies by the Defence News, USA.

BEL has a unique history of profit making Public Sector Enterprise right from its inception. There have been events of decrease in turnover and profit after Tax due to reasons beyond reasonable control of the company. But the companys strength lies in its capability to combat the threats, for

16 | P a g e

example US Embargo on exports to BEL. BEL hopes to generate 25 per cent increase in turnover with a 15 per cent rise in net profit in the current fiscal year over the previous. Corrective measures against western sanctions have been undertaken, which are likely to translate into higher turnover and profitability. The company is putting all efforts to minimize the effect of the restrictions by early establishments of alternative arrangements. The Defence Research Laboratories and Academic Institutions are also being persuaded with for indigenisation of certain special category of devices and components. The company is also opening an office in Singapore to procure components from Asian markets. Thus in the long run the restrictions will prove as blessings resulting in self-dependence and better profit margins.

Also several R&D projects with long gestation periods will go into commercial production during the current fiscal.


In the mid 60s, while reviewing the Defence requirement of the country, the government focused its attention to strengthen the Air Defence system, in particular the ground

17 | P a g e

electronics system support, for the air Defence network. This led to the formulation of a very major plan for an integrated Air Defence Ground Environment System known as the plan ADGES with Prime Minister as the presiding officer of the apex review committee .At about the same time, Public attention was focused on the report of the Bhabha committee on the development and production of electronic equipment. The ministry of Defence immediately realized the need to establish production capacity for meeting the electronic equipment requirements for its plan ADGES. BEL was then inserted with the task of meeting the development and production requirement for the plan ADGES and in view of the importance of the project it was decided to create additional capacity at a second unit of the company. In December 1970 the Govt. sanctioned an additional unit for BEL. In 1971, the industrial license for manufacture of radar and microwave equipment was obtained, 1972 saw the commencement of construction activities and production was launched in 1974. Over the years, the unit has successfully manufactured a wide variety of equipment needed for Defence and civil use. It has also installed and commissioned a large number of systems on turnkey basis.

This department deals with the various instruments used in BEL. There are 300 equipments and they are of 16 types. Examples of some test equipments are: Oscilloscope(CRO) Multimeter Power meter Power Splitter Signal Analyzer Logical Pulsar Counter Function Generator etc.

Mainly the calibration of instruments is carried out here. They are compared with the standard of National Physical Laboratory (NPL). So, it is said to be one set down to NPL. As every instrument has a calibration period after which the accuracy of the instrument falls from the required standards. So if any of the instruments is not working properly, it is being sent here for its correct calibration. To calibrate instruments software techniques are used which includes the program written in any suitable programming language. So it is not the calibration but programming that takes time .For any industry to get its instrument calibrated by NPL is very costly, so it is the basic need for every industry to have its own calibration unit if it can afford it. Test equipment and automation lab mainly deals with the equipment that is used for testing and calibration .The section calibrates and maintains the measuring instruments mainly used for Defense purpose. A calibration is basically testing of equipment with a standard parameter. It is done with the help of standard equipment should be of some make, model and type. The national physical laboratory (NPL), New Delhi provides the standard values yearly. BEL follows International Standard Organization (ISO) standard. The test equipments are calibrated either half yearly or yearly. After testing different tags are labeled on the equipment according to the observations.

A negative and a positive of a ckt. are developed. To identify b/w the negative and positive, following observation is done. If the ckt. is black and the rest of the sheet is white, it is positive otherwise negative. Next, pattern plating is done. The procedure for pattern plating follows : Loading- Cleaner- Water rings- Mild etch- Spray- Water Rinse-Electrolytic- Copper plating- Water rinseSulfuric acid-Tin plating- Water rinse- Antitarnic dip- Hot air dry- Unloading. To give strength to the wires so that they can not break. This is done before molding. Varnishing is done as anti fungus prevention for against environmental hazard. After completion of manufacturing proceeds it is sent for testing. This is followed by resist striping and copper etching. The unwanted copper i.e. off the tracks is etched by any of the following chemicals. After this, tin is stripped out from the tracks. After this solder marking is done. Solder marking is done to mark the tracks to get oxidized & finally etch. To prevent the copper from getting etched & making the whole circuit functionally done.

There are three types of solder marking done in BEL: Wet solder mask: Due to some demerits this method is totally ruled out. The demerit was non- alignment, which was due to wrong method applied or wrong machine. Dry pin solder mask: Due to wastage of films about 30% this method is also not used now. Liquid photo imaginable solder mask (LPISM): In this first presoaking is at 80 degree Celsius for 10 to 20 minutes. Next, screen preparation is done. The board is covered by a silk cloth whose mesh is T-48. The angle to tilt of the board is 15 degree to 22.5 degree. The next is ink preparation: Ink + Hardener 71 % : 29 % (150 gms.) : (300gms.) + Butyrate solo solve 50gms/kg.

Ink preparationIt uses :Ink-----100gm Catalyst----10% of total weight Reducer-----10% of total weight The catalyst is used as binder and prevents the following, while reducer is used as thinner. The three things are then fully mixed. For wash out, following procedure takes place. Water-Lactic acid-Water-Bleaching power-Water-caustic Soda-Water-Air dry-TCE. After wash out, final baking for one hour at the temt. of 20degree C is done. After this shearing or routing is done which is followed by debarring and packing.

Radar is an electromagnetic system for the detection and location of reflecting objects such as aircrafts, ships, spacecraft, vehicles, peoples and the natural environment. It operates by radiating energy into space and detecting the reflected echo signal from an object, or target. The reflected energy to the radar not only indicates the presence of a target, but by comparing the received echo signal with the signal that was transmitted, its location can be determined along with other target related information. Radar can perform its function at long or short distances and under conditions impervious to optical and infrared sensors. It can operate in darkness, haze, fog, rain and snow. Its ability to measure the distance with high accuracy and in all weather is one of its most important attributes. Although most of the radar units use microwave frequencies, the principle of radar is not confine to any particular frequency range. There are some radar units that operate on frequencies well below 100 MHz and others that operate in the infra-red range and above.

Although the development of radar as a full-fledged technology did not occur until World War-II, the basic principle of radar detection is almost as old as the subject of electromagnetism itself. Heinrich Hertz, in 1886, experimentally tested the theories of Maxwell and demonstrated the similarity between radio and light waves. Hertz showed that radio waves could be reflected by metallic and dielectric bodies. It is interesting to know that although Hertzs experiments were performed with relatively short wavelength radiation (66 cm), later work in radio engineering was almost entirely at longer wavelengths. The shorter wavelengths were not actively used to any extent until the late thirties. One of the biggest advocators of radar technology was Robert WatsonWatt, a British scientist. Several inventors, scientists, and engineers contributed to the development of radar. The use of radio waves to detect "the presence of distant metallic objects via radio waves" was first implemented in 1904 by Christian Hlsmeyer, who demonstrated the feasibility of detecting the

39 | P a g e

presence of ships in dense fog and received a patent for radar as Reichspatent Nr. 165546. Another of the first working models was produced by Hungarian Zoltn Bay in 1936 at the Tungsram laboratory. While radar development was pushed because of wartime concerns, the idea first came about as an anti-collision system. After the Titanic ran into an iceberg and sank in 1912, people were interested in ways to make such happenings avoidable. The term RADAR was coined in 1941 as an acronym for Radio Detection and Ranging. The name reflects the importance placed by the workers in this field on the need for a device to detect the presence of a target and to measure its range. This acronym of American origin replaced the previously used British abbreviation RDF (Radio Direction Finding). Although modern radar can extract more information from a targets echo signal than its range, the measurement of range is still one of its most important functions. There are no competitive techniques that can accurately measure long ranges in both clear and adverse weather as well as can radar.

An elementary form of radar consists of a transmitting antenna emitting electromagnetic radiation generated by an oscillator of some sort, a receiving antenna, and an energy-detecting device, or receiver. A transmitter generates an electromagnetic signal (such as a short pulse of sine wave) that is radiated into space by an antenna. A portion of the transmitted energy is intercepted by the target and reradiated in many directions. The reradiation directed back towards the radar is collected by the radar antenna, which delivers it to a receiver. There it is processed to detect the presence of the target and determine its location. A single antenna is usually used on a time-shared basis for both transmitting and receiving when the radar waveform is a repetitive series of pulses. The range, or distance, to a target is found by measuring the time it takes for the radar signal to travel to the target and return back to the radar. (Radar engineers use the term range to mean distance) The targets location in angle can be found from the direction the narrow -beamwidth radar antenna points when the received echo signal is of maximum amplitude. If the target is in motion, there is a shift in the frequency of the echo signal due to the Doppler effect. This frequency shift is

40 | P a g e

proportional to the velocity of the target relative to the radar (also called the radial velocity). The Doppler frequency shift is widely used in radar as the basis for separating desired moving targets from fixed (unwanted) clutter echoes reflected from the natural environment such as land, sea, or rain. Radar can also provide information about the nature of the target being observed.


Echo is something you experience all the time. If you shout into a well or a canyon, the echo comes back a moment later. The echo occurs because some of the sound waves in your shout reflect off of a surface (either the water at the bottom of the well or the canyon wall on the far side) and travel back to your ears. The length of time between the moments you shout and the distance between you and the surface that creates the echo determines the moment that you hear the echo. Doppler shift is also common. You probably experience it daily (often without realizing it). Doppler shift occurs when sound is generated by, or reflected off of, a moving object. Doppler shift in the extreme creates sonic booms (see below). Here's how to understand Doppler shift (you may also want to try this experiment in an empty parking lot). Let's say there is a car coming toward you at 60 miles per hour (mph) and its horn is blaring. You will hear the horn playing one "note" as the car approaches, but when the car passes you the sound of the horn will suddenly shift to a lower note. It's the same horn making the same sound the whole time. The change you hear is caused by Doppler shift.

Based on function radar can be divided into two types: PRIMARY OR SIMPLE RADAR SECONDARY RADAR

41 | P a g e

Primary radar or the simple radar locates a target by procedure described in section. But in cases as controlling of air traffic, the controller must be able to identify the aircraft and find whether it is a friend or foe. It is also desired to know the height of aircraft. To give controller this information second radar called the SECONDARY SURVEILLANCE RADAR, (SSR) is used. This works differently and need the help of the target aircraft it sance out a sequence of pulses to an electronic BLACK BOX called the TRANSPONDER, fitted on the aircraft. The transponder is connected to the aircrafts altimeter (the device which measures the planes altitude) to transmit back the coded message to the radar about its status and altitude. Military aircrafts uses a similar kind of radar system with secrete code to make sure that it is friend or foe, a hostile aircraft does not know what code to transmit back to the ground station for the corresponding receiver code.

IFF is basically a radar bacon system employed for the purpose of general identification of military targets .The bacon system when used for the control of civil air traffic is called as SECONDARY SURVEILLANCE RADAR (SSR). Primary radar locates an object by transmitting signal and detecting the reflected echo. A secondary radar system is basically very similar to primary radar system except that the returned signal is radiated from the transmitter on board the target rather then by reflection, i.e. it operates with a cooperative active target while the primary radar operates with passive target. Secondary radar system consists of an interrogative and a transponder. The interrogator transmitter in the ground station interrogates transponder equipped aircraft, providing two way data communication on different transmitter and receiver frequency. The transponder on board the aircraft on receipt of a chain of pulses from ground interrogator, automatically transmit the reply, coded for the purpose of identification, is received back to the ground interrogator where it is decoded and displayed on a radar type presentation.


42 | P a g e

Separate transmitting and receiving frequencies eliminate ground and whiter return problems. Reply pulses are stronger then echo signal of primary radar. Reply signal is independent of the target cross section. Interrogation and reply path coding provide discrete target identification and altitude.

The interrogate and reply mode works on the L band The SSR operates on the same frequency channel for both military and civil air traffic control by using compatible airborne aircraft

Basic Radar System

A basic radar system is spilt up into a transmitter, switch, antenna, receiver, data recorder, processor and some sort of output display. Everything starts with the transmitter as it transmits a high power pulse to a switch, which then directs the pulse to be transmitted out an antenna. Just after the antenna is finished transmitting the pulse, the switch switches control to the receiver, which allows the antenna to receive echoed signals. Once the signals are received the switch then

43 | P a g e

transfers control back to the transmitter to transmit another signal. The switch may toggle control between the transmitter and the receiver as much as 1000 times per second. Any received signals from the receiver are then sent to a data recorder for storage on a disk or tape. Later the data must be processed to be interpreted into something useful, which would go on a Pulse Width and Bandwidth: Some radar transmitters do not transmit constant, uninterrupted electromagnetic waves. Instead, they transmit rhythmic pulses of EM waves with a set amount of time in between each pulse. The pulse itself would consist of an EM wave of several wavelengths with some dead time after it in which there are no transmissions. The time between each pulse is called the pulse repetition time (PRT) and the number of pulses transmitted in one second is called the pulse repetition frequency (PRF). The time taken for each pulse to be transmitted is called the pulse width (PW) or pulse duration. Typically they can be around 0.1 microseconds long for penetrating radars or 10-50 microseconds long for imaging radars (a display. microsecond is a millionth of a second). Mathematically, PRT = 1 / PRF or PRF = 1 / PRT


A radar system, as found on many merchants ships, has three main parts: The antenna unit or the scanner The transmitter receiver or transceiver and

44 | P a g e

The visual display unit The antenna is two or three meter wide and focuses pulses off very high frequency radio energy into a narrow vertical beam. The frequency of the radio waves is basically about 10,000 MHz. The antenna is rotated at the rate of 10 to 25 rpm so that radar beam swaps through 300degree Celsius all around the ship out to a range of about 90 kms. In all radar it is vital that the transmitting and the receiving in a transceiver are in close harmony. Everything depends on accurate measurement of the time that passes between the transmission of pulse and the return of the echo. About 1000, pulses per second are transmitted. Though it is varied to suit the requirements. Short pulses are best for short-range work, longer pulses are best for longer-range work. An important part of transceiver circuit is modular circuit. This keys the transmitter so that it oscillates, or pulses for the right length of time. The pulses so designed are video pulses. These pulses are short range pulses hence cant serve out the purpose of long range work .In order to modify these pulses to long range pulses or the RF pulses, we need to generate the power. The transmitted power is generated in a device called the magnetron which can handle all these short pulses and very high oscillations. Between these pulses, the transmitter is switched off and isolated. The weak echoes from the target are picked up by the antenna and fed into the receiver. To avoid overlapping of these echoes with the next transmitted pulse, another device called duplexer is used. Thus by means of the duplexer, undisturbed two-way communication is established. The RF echoes emerging from the duplexer are now fed to the mixer where they are mixed with the RF energy. These pulses are generated by the means of a local oscillator. Once two are mixed, a signal is produced in the output which is of intermediate frequency range or IF range .The IF signal is received by the receiver by the receiver where it is demodulated to video frequency signal range, amplified, and then passed to the display system. The display system usually carried out the control necessary for the operation of whole radar .It has a cathode ray gun, which consists of a electron gun in its neck. The gun shouts electron to

45 | P a g e

the phosphorescent screen at the far end. Phosphorescent screen glows when hit by an electron and the resulting spot can be seen through the glass face. The screen is circular in shape and I calibrated in the edges .The electron beam travels from the center of the edge. This radio motion of the electron is known as trace is matched with the rotation of the antenna. So when the calibration is at zero degree on the tube calibration, the antenna is pointing to the dead ahead. The beginning of each trace corresponds exactly which the moment at which the suppression radar energy is transmitted. The basic idea behind radar is very simple: a signal is transmitted, it bounces off an object and some type of receiver later receives it. They use certain kinds of electromagnetic waves called radio waves and microwaves. This is where the name RADAR comes from (Radio Detection And Ranging). Sound is used as a signal to detect objects in devices called SONAR (Sound Navigation Ranging). Another type of signal used that is relatively new is laser light that is used in devices called LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging). Once the radar receives the returned signal, it calculates useful information from it such as the time taken for it to be received, the strength of the returned signal, or the change in frequency of the signal.

The amount of power Pr returning to the receiving antenna is given by the radar equation:


Pt = transmitter power Gt = gain of the transmitting antenna Ar = effective aperture (area) of the receiving antenna = radar cross section, or scattering coefficient, of the target F = pattern propagation factor

46 | P a g e

Rt = distance from the transmitter to the target Rr = distance from the target to the receiver.

In the common case where the transmitter and the receiver are at the same location, Rt = Rr and the term Rt2 Rr2 can be replaced by R4, where R is the range. This yields:

This shows that the received power declines as the fourth power of the range, which means that the reflected power from distant targets is very, very small. The equation above with F = 1 is a simplification for vacuum without interference. The propagation factor accounts for the effects of multipath and shadowing and depends on the details of the environment. In a real-world situation, pathloss effects should also be considered.

Radar has been employed on the ground, in the air, on the sea and in space. Ground based radar has been applied chiefly to the detection, location, and tracking of the aircraft or space target. Shipboard radar is used as a navigation aid and safety device to locate buoys, shorelines and other ships as well as for observing aircraft. Airborne radar may be used to detect other aircraft, ships, or land vehicles or it may be used for mapping of land, storm avoidance, terrain avoidance and navigation. In space, radar has assist in the guidance of spacecraft and for remote sensing of the land and sea. The major use of radar, and contributor of the cost of almost all of its development, has been the military; although there has been increasingly important civil application, chiefly for marine and air navigation. The major areas of radar application are briefly described below:

Air Traffic Control (ATC):

Radar is employed throughout the world for the

purpose of safely controlling air traffic route and in the vicinity of Airport. Aircraft and ground vehicular traffic at large airport are monitored by means of high - resolution radar.

47 | P a g e

Radar has been used with GCA (ground control approach) system to guide aircraft to a safe landing in bad weather.

Ship Safety: Radar is used for enhancing the safety of ship travel by warning of ship
potential collision with other ships, and for detecting navigation buoys, especially in poor visibility. Automatic detection and tracking equipment are commercially available for use with radar for the purpose of collision avoidance. Shore based radar of moderately high resolution is also used for the surveillance of harbors as an aid to navigation.

Space: Space vehicles have used radar for rendezvous and docking and for landing on
the moon. Some of the largest ground based radar is for the detection and tracking of satellite.

Remote Sensing:

All radar is a remote sensor. Radar has been used as a remote

sensor of the weather. It is also used to probe the moon and planets. The ionospheric sounder, an important adjunct for HF (short wave) communications, is radar. Remote sensing with radar is also concerned with earth resources, which include the measurement and mapping of sea condition, water resources, ice cover, agriculture, forestry condition, geological information and environmental pollution.

Law Enforcement:
detection of intruders.

In addition to the wide use of radar to measure the speed of

automobile traffic by highway police, radar has also been employed as a means for the


Many of the civilian application of the radar are also employed by the

military. The traditional role of radar for military application has been for surveillance, navigation and for the control and guidance of weapon.
