During the last three years and the current year a total of 177 contracts have been signed with Indian and foreign vendors for the Armed Forces and for Capital procurement of Defence equipment such as Ships, Missiles, Rockets, Simulators, Aircrafts, Helicopters, ammunition and Radars.
Capital procurement of defence equipment is a continuous process undertaken as per Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP). Capital procurement proposals flow from the planning process. The Long Term Integrated Perspective Plan (LTIPP) covers a period of 15 years. Currently the LTIPP 2012-27 is in vogue wherein the requirements specific to Army, Navy and Air Force include Guns, Rockets, Missile Systems, Non-Lethal Weapons, Flight Control Systems, UAVs, Amphibious Aircraft, Air-Launched Weapon and Submarines. The LTIPP is translated into specific assets to be acquired, in the form of Services Capital Acquisition Plan (SCAP), covering a five year period. The Annual Acquisition Plan (AAP) of each service is a two year roll on plan for capital acquisition and consists of the schemes from approved five years SCAP.
