    India, Canada explore scope for joint defence research

    New Delhi, Oct 17 : India and Canada are exploring opportunities in joint defence research and development and have identified early warning and response networks, advanced materials, and space technologies as some of the areas where they have a strong alignment.

    Discussions on this were held by Defence Research and Development Organisation chief Vijay Kumar Saraswat during his visit to Canada Oct 10-15, a DRDO release said here Monday.

    Saraswat and a DRDO delegation attended the Indo-Canadian workshop on 'Frontiers in Science and Engineering 2011’ at York University and visited and discussed technologies of common interest to the two countries with Canadian agencies and experts from academia, science and technology organisation and industries.

    The workshop was also attended by delegates from Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and Indian universities, apart from those from Canadian institutions.

    "To proceed further, the two sides have agreed to outline future course of action within a month and to hold the next workshop in India in 2012," the release said.

    The Indian delegation also met Canada's Defence Research and Development Centre authorities and the assistant deputy minister in charge of defence research.

    The Indian team visited Canada's science and technology institutions and it was decided by the two sides to discuss setting up of similar facilities in India.

    "There was a broad understanding that the two countries are facing similar problems and have identical priorities. It was decided that the matter for collaboration will be taken up at the appropriate level.

    "It is proposed to cover development of futuristic technologies for defence and internal security to prepare both the countries for evolving futuristic threats," the release added.
