INAS 318, renowned for its continuous engagement in maritime surveillance since its inception on March 8, 1984, has been instrumental in enhancing the nation’s maritime domain awareness. Originally operating with Islander aircraft, the squadron upgraded to Dornier aircraft in 1999, equipped with advanced Maritime Patrol Radars for extended range surveillance. This all-women mission by INAS 318 is a testament to the Indian Navy’s ongoing endeavors to integrate women into combat and operational roles, paving the way for a more inclusive and diverse military force.
