    This is why the self reliance and indigenous production are more important to us !

    Developed nations dumping low tech: BrahMos Aero CEO
    Jul 14 2012, 16:52 | By PTI

    Developed countries are dumping low technology on developing nations resulting in lack of conducive environment for higher learning, research and indigenous production, a senior scientist said on Friday.

    "...They (developed countries) are growing up and they want to maintain the developed status with technology...The developed countries dump the low technolo
    gies to developing countries," BrahMos Aerospace CEO A Sivathanu Pillai said in a lecture in Chennai. "That means we are getting low technology items spending our resources ...this leads to lack of conducive environment for higher learning, high technology research and indigenous production," he said.

    Observing that developing countries were using their resource for low technology, he said, "Your resource is gone. You have got very limited resource to develop yourself. That means you cannot do high technology research." Listing out the chain reaction that followed the low technology from developed countries, he said, "..as the people are concerned, good people think thay this is not the country to stay..so they want to move out. That leads to brain drain."

    Talking to reporters later, he said that BrahMos Aerospace, an Indo-Russian joint venture, was currently working on underwater version of the supersonic cruise missle BrahMos for launch from submarines. "The missile is a multi-target capability missile, in the sense, you can attack a ship on the sea, or you can attack on the land. And from air also you can attack ship as anti-ship system or anti-land system. These are our immediate missions... in next five years, we are going for the hypersonic version," he said.

    May be I am slow today because of weekend but I haven't understood this article. What BrahMos CEO is complaining about.

    Conducive atmosphere can be created by investing more money in R&D. Irrespective of what other nations are offering (low end) to developing nation any country if has its priorities honest and not misplaced one can catch up with high end technologies develop countries boast off especially country like India where we have a large pool of bright young brains draining elsewhere. Just one year back Indian PM announced just a respectable amount of money to institution dedicated for R&D.

    Indians have mastered the art of Sulking. There is no free lunch in international business, developed nations will never let go their technological superiority. If we desire to compete we will have to acquire the "do it yourself" attitude, instead of trying to copy specifications and designs from their product brochures.

    Why the hell you expect to get state of the art from some foreign country. It will have its own limitations. Even we will not give our state of the art tech to any other country.

    That reminded me a incident in 2008 defexpo, night vision devices were put by US company, person at the counter said this is state of the art night vision, when asked what generation these are, he said 3rd generation, when asked 4th generation are the state of the art. He said that they have those, but they didnt bring.

    So what ever happen they will not give their state of the art tech to us. Ofcourse MKI is only exception to this rule, but we did pay for the R&D for the plane.

    well if you want to superpower, or want any place close to it, then we have no other option but to pursue state of the art tech, in almost all fields or at least in major fields, which will have impact on future. Those who will be at the top of the game will decide the terms of future and others will have no option but to follow them.
