Two Scorpene submarine out of the six is expected to roll out without Air Independent Propulsion (AIP) system under development by DRDO. The AIP extend the reach of the conventional diesel-electric submarines and enables submarines to remain underwater for a longer duration.Though, AIP module is not part of the original ‘Scorpene contract’ but the Navy has been keen on having them installed on the two submarine before it is rolled out.
