In a bid to strengthen the defence manufacturing ecosystem in India, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Tuesday (14 February) transferred 12 technologies developed by its labs to the Indian industries.
These technologies are related to Uttam AESA radar, unified mission computer and weapon target system among others.
DRDO handed over 18 ToT (Transfer of Technology) agreements to 18 Indian Industries for transfer of 12 technologies developed by its laboratories, according to a Defence Ministry statement.
The technologies were handed over to the industries by DRDO chairman Samir V Kamat.
"The technologies handed over to Indian industries pertain to multi-channel laser DEW for 10kW/2km range hard kill system, active electronically scanned array radar (AESAR) – Uttam, air defence fire control radar (ADFCR) – Atulya, NAYAN COMINT system, unified mission computer, software for outdoor perimeter system (STOPS), LAND inertial navigation system (LAND-INS) for land-based application, ceramics radomes technology, trawl assembly for T-72/T-90 tanks, weapon tracking system (WTS), linear thermal detector, and CBRN water purification system (WPS) Mk II," the ministry said.
According to the ministry, the ToT of these DRDO developed technologies will further strengthen the manufacturing eco-system in the country in the area of defence systems and platforms.
It should be noted that DRDO has entered into more than 1,500 ToT agreements so far with Indian Industries.
