With air mishaps dogging its fleet, the IAF will buy a Search and Rescue System (SRS) for post-crash recovery of crew, aircraft and helicopters, be it during war or peace."The defence ministry intends to procure SRS for carrying out secure rescue of aircrew and aircraft during combat as well as peace time for which a request for information has been issued," a senior IAF officer said today."The IAF intends to employ the equipment for recovering downed aircrew and aircraft. The system being bought will be put to use by IAF for over 20 years," the officer said.
