A highlight of the visit was the showcasing of BEL's Akash NG Multi-Function Radar (MFR) to the DRC delegation. The Akash NG is an advanced air defence radar system that plays a crucial role in India's multi-layered air defence network. The demonstration provided the delegation with a firsthand look at India's indigenous defence technology capabilities.
