  • According to Mrinal Tayal, co-founder and director of the company, it is a pre-engineered, portable, modular firing range that can be extended up to 300 metres.
  • According to SIDM sources, significant applications include lingering weapons, swarming, aerial decoys, and swarm-based training for air defence.

The inventories of medium and small-scale businesses and start-ups will compete with those of the major players in the defence manufacturing industry at the DefExpo in Gandhinagar starting on Tuesday. These products include a complete armoury solution, 9mm pistols, 5.56 mm assault rifles, and next-generation hemostatic bandages.

Raspian Enterprises’ 9mm pistols and 5.56 mm assault rifles, Almerio Defence and Aerospace LLP’s portable earth cover magazines, pre-engineered portable modular and baffling firing range, and containment box, as well as Axio Biosolutions Pvt Limited’s 100 percent chitosan shell dressing for soldiers, are just a few of the 25 Indian defence manufacturers whose names Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers (SIDM) has share in.

These exhibits would be a part of “Bandhan,” an event planned to foster business relationships and present start-ups and MSME’s cutting-edge technological solutions for the battlefield of the future.

To promote Atmanirbhartha in the defence industry and attempt to make the products globally competitive in terms of quality, over 400 MOUs will be announced at the DefExpo, according to Defense Secretary Ajay Kumar.

Novel products

The mobile firing range is a safe, modular range equipped for real-time shooting. It has a strong baffle system, HEPA filtration, an HVAC system, bulletproof exteriors, and high-quality ceiling guards. It is a pre-engineered, portable, modular firing range that can be extended up to 300 metres.

Portable Earth Covered Magazines (ECMs), which Tayal asserts are different from the current RCC magazines and are desperately needed for a longer ammunition shelf life, are other goods in the weapon management area.

She enumerated its qualities and said that the portable ECMs are minimal maintenance and specially made to match particular military ammunition storage applications. She said that Almerio Defence and Aerospace LLP is run by women entrepreneurs, a rarity in the defence sector.

According to product information, Kadet Defence Systems Pvt Ltd is offering multi-role high-speed jet-powered combat UAVs with stealth characteristics with range greater than 300 km and ability to fly at speeds of 500 km/h with a payload of up to 25kg in the unmanned systems market, in which many of the top domestic and international companies are competing.

According to SIDM sources, significant applications include lingering weapons, swarming, aerial decoys, and swarm-based training for air defence.
