The Defexpo India 2016, which is the ninth biennial Land, Naval and Internal Homeland Security Systems Exhibition, was inaugurated at Naqueri Quitol in Quepem Taluka of South Goa on March 28. This edition of Defexpo witnessed an overwhelming and unprecedented national and international response. Though the scenario is changing now, if we take a stock of private involvement in Defence technologies, there were very limited numbers of player in the domestic scenario till the last decade. Lately, the various schemes of the Modi government such as the Make in India have given an impetus to even the defence sector. The change in scenario is bound to instill a renewed sense of pride in Indian industry by exhibiting the potential of design, innovation and sustainability across India’s manufacturing sectors in the coming decade.
The Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz Ltd. (THRSL) – a leading private player in India’s defence technology sector – is showcasing its products at the event. THRSL has also collaborated with DRDO to produce some unmanned Ground vehicles with various classes of robots with various payloads.
The Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz is the winner of Industrial Innovation award 2014 awarded by the Defence Robotics division of CII and MSME National Award winner for Research & Development. It is an Indian bootstrapped start-up focused towards developing and delivering world class Indigenised Robotics and Unmanned System products for keeping Armed/Civil personnel safe. With more than 17 patents for various areas of robotics, THRSL provides cutting edge technologies in rugged Intelligent Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems. THRSL’s mission critical ISR products bring action able intelligence to a remote location for strategic and tactile planning, hence providing an operational edge to the defence personnel.
The products can be of great aid in:
1. Reducing deployment in difficult terrains such as Siachin, Rann of Kutch etc.
2. Disaster recovery operations, such as the recent Siachin Avalanche and Mumbai Terror Attacks.
Speaking at the sidelines of the event Anuj Kapuria, director & CEO, The Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz Limited (THRSL) said, “The state of affairs have changed drastically in the last one and half years; we foresee tremendous growth possibilities – we need to focus our energies to ensure a sustained growth in the robotics sector. It will strengthen our armed forces and reduce the need for deployment in difficult terrains.”
S. Radhakrishnan, OS & director – Industry Interface and Technology Management, DRDO said, “Today military technology is becoming more and more complex and Robotics is going to play a big role in defense technology. Today, a number of conventional systems are moving into autonomous mode and Hitech Robotics, who have been working in this area has got unique capabilities. Robotics is a multi disciplinary field and a good understanding of mechanics, automation, electronics, image processing is a must, it is a conclusion of all technologies into one and Hitech Robotics has excellent insight in each one of them. Hitech has taken technology transfer for the Daksh they are manufacturing.
They have added enormous value to the product and DRDO is very happy with the support they have received from Hitech Robotics. We are proud of Hitech Robotics contribution in the field of Robotics and DRDO is looking forward to more joint developments and more challenging task with Hitech Robotics”Posted in Corporate
