With a two million sq. km Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and a larger envisaged role in geo-politics, India needs to strengthen her national security including maritime security. Core to the objective of providing impregnable maritime security is the necessity to equip our armed forces with the best in class defense equipment including state of the art armament.
Under the ‘Make in India’ initiative, the Indian Navy has been at the forefront of indigenization activities with major advancements in ‘Float’ category, through successful manufacturing of platforms at domestic shipyards. Similarly, in the ‘Move’ category indigenization of engines, ship systems, sensors etc. has fructified to a great extent. However, under the ‘Fight’ category, not much progress has been made in indigenization of naval armament and weapon systems.
To provide opportunity for exchange of ideas, create awareness and identify emerging opportunities for Indian/International defence industry in the arena of naval armament, including MSMEs, Indian Navy in association with Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers (SIDM) & Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), is organising international seminar and exhibition on naval armament, ‘NAVARMS-2018’ with the theme ‘Make in India – Fight Category’: Opportunities and Imperatives, at India Habitat Centre, Lodi Road, New Delhi on 22-23 Nov 2018.
In the past, three editions of NAVARMS have been organized in 2007, 2010 and 2013 respectively. These have aroused much enthusiasm and active participation by the industry (both domestic and international), Ministry of Defence(MoD), Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the user. NAVARMS is the only international seminar and exhibition on naval armament (NA) conducted in the country which provides a common platform to all stakeholders involved in the lifecycle management of NA stores to share their views and concerns.
NAVARMS -2018 will be a two-day event spread over five plenary sessions on the first day, followed by Business to Govt Meetings on the second day.
The objective of the seminar is to identify means and ways for energizing Indian Navy’s Fight category sector, seek industry support for capital and revenue requirements, leverage potential of start-ups and incubators for defense R&D, product realization, and to identify any impediments to a mutually beneficial partnership between the industry and the government.
