Events

In an effort to engage with our stakeholders SIDM regularly conducts various events which provide a common platform for interaction with three Armed Forces, DRDO, Ministry of Defence, Paramilitary Forces and, also, OEMs and other industry players. These interactions not only help taking up issues facing the industry with the concerned users or the policy makers, but also help in communicating the policy changes undertaken by the Government and sharing the requirement of the Armed Forces with industry. In addition, these events provide excellent branding and exhibition opportunity for companies to showcase their capability to the users as well as potential collaborators.
