    Polaris to showcase top end military vehicles at Goa Defence Expo 2016

    DELHI: Polaris India is all set to showcase its range topping all- terrain vehicles at the Defence Expo 2016 which will be held for the first time in Goa, from March 28-31. Polaris India will be unveiling two new vehicles Dagor and MRZR at the Defence Expo. The Dagor will be showcased for the first time in Asia at the Defence Expo. "The Dagor is not showcased at every defence expo as it requires permission from the US military which decides where the vehicle is going to be sold," said Pankaj Dubey, Country head & MD, Polaris India. The Dagor is a 9 seater all-terrain vehicle which can accommodate up to 48 in weapon rings. "20 percent of Polaris India's business comes from defence and paramilitary," added Dubey. Polaris India expects an increase of 30 to 35 percent in defence sales. Polaris is very happy with the change of the venue of the Defence Expo, "Top officials of the Indian Army who will take the final decision will now give their 100 percent attention the Expo as they will not be hampered by work," said Dubey. When asked if the sale of F16s by the US to Pakistan will change the dynamic of the deals Polaris has with the Indian Armed Forces, Dubey said, "The deal of Polaris with the forces is related to the usage of the technology, superiority of Polaris products and is not dependent on external factors."

    NEW DELHI: Eyeing the Indian defence sector, Lockheed Martin will showcase several technologies and products for the Air Force, Army and Navy at the Defence Expo 2016. The exhibition, which will be from March 28 to March 31, is being held for the first time in Goa. The US defence major is planning to showcase the C-130J Super Hercules, F-35, F-16, S-70B Seahawk, M-28, MH-60R maritime helicopter, Hellfire, Javelin anti-tank and multi-target precision weapon system, Aegis Combat System and Gyrocam sensor system.
    "With our partner (Raytheon) and the support of US government, we will highlight the Javelin Anti- Tank Guided Missile system. At the show, we plan to discuss Javelin's capability to a wide set of Army and MoD customers," says Lockheed. Lockheed will also focus on a variety of programs including the C-130J, currently in service with the Indian Air Force. "We look forward to meeting with potential and current customers. The Indian Navy has selected the S-70B SEAHAWK platform to meet its anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare needs," adds Lockheed.
    For the MH-60R, Lockheed plans to engage the Indian Navy and MoD personnel to help explain its benefits and capability to the Indian Navy. "We will also look to engage the Indian Navy regarding our Aegis Combat System and its unmatched capabilities. Finally, the Gyrocam system that we produce is an extremely cost effective and capable EO sensor in service with military and civil agencies around the world. With our partners in India (VEM Technologies), we will showcase this capability during the show," adds Lockheed.

    I think it's a good idea to have the expo in Goa this time. The Russian companies will be pleased, won't they? :laugh:

    @gadeshi Have you ever been to Goa, sir?

    Russian delegation would be happiest of the lot, work and holiday at the same time.

    Probably some will leave only after a month or so.

    Don't remember if this month is peak or off season !!!

    i am gonna go out on a limb here and say that any foreign company that supplies defence equipment to Pakistan should be, if not banned, then GOI should not give them any orders in the future. Lockheed, French firm supplying submarines to Pakis.

    Too harsh? or is it the way forward. Let them know, if you arm our enemies, you lose the Indian market. Possible or not?

    If done so, we would be banning more than half of the vendors. In peace times, what you say might sound reasonable. The same cannot be done in times of war, especially God forbid it is a prolonged war.

    Other option is to make domestic defence industry capable enough so that we don't have to rely too much on vendors. In this case competition itself will take care of this issue.
