Indigenous Technologies Developed by DRDO

  • Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has been developing technologies, products and systems that are required for the Armed Forces.
  • After the systems are trial evaluated and accepted by the Users, the technologies are transferred to production agencies for manufacture and supply to Users.
  • Indigenous technologies developed by DRDO are available for transfer to Indian Industry.
  • The process for transfer of indigenous technologies has been promulgated and a document tilted “DRDO Guidelines for Transfer of Technology” has already been issued.
