Better sell of BSNL.. Had been to a local BSNL office in my native town to get an internet connection 3 times.. I was just made to run around without any result.. They are just too secure in their jobs to work..

And who is going to buy it ? Government of China or government of USA ?

Ordnance Factory Tiruchirappalli launches Stabilized Remote Controlled Gun | Trichy News – India Daily Mail

TRICHY: Ordnance Factory of Tiruchirappalli (OFT) has launched an indigenous weapon named Stabilized Remote Controlled Gun (SRCG). A dedicated assembly and testing facility was also developed at OFT for manufacturing the weapon here.

The weapon will be mounted on warships and patrol boats. SRCG fitted with 12.7 mm M2 NATO standard machine gun can remotely engage small boats with high accuracy both during day and night.

Equipped with sensors, the weapon has an automatic target tracking capacity. The gun could be fired manually too, OFT officials said.

The indigenous manufacturing of the weapon for Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard will save an amount of Rs 167 crore.

The new weapon will provide a business opportunity for Rs 255 crore per annum for the next four years for the Ordnance Factory Tiruchirappalli and other sister factories.

The ordnance factory in Trichy is the nodal factory for SRCG weapon system.

With Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) having successfully developed Basic Trainer Aircraft (HTT-40) Prototypes and certification process underway, the DAC approved procurement of 106 Basic Trainer Aircraft from HAL to address the basic training requirements of the Indian Air Force (IAF)
In order to put the idea of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ into action, the Ministry of Defence has approved proposals worth ₹8,722.38 crore of capital acquisitions of various platforms and equipment required by the Indian Armed Forces, which includes 106 Basic Trainer aircrafts for the Indian Air Force.

According to a statement released by the Defence Ministry, the move was made in order to strengthen the Armed Forces by relying on indigenous capability to take forward the initiative on ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’. The Defence Acquisition Council (DAC), in a meeting chaired by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, accorded the approval for capital acquisitions of various platforms and equipment required by the Indian Armed Forces. Proposals for an approximate cost of ₹8,722.38 crore were approveWith Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) having successfully developed Basic Trainer Aircraft (HTT-40) Prototypes and certification process underway, the DAC approved procurement of 106 Basic Trainer Aircraft from HAL to address the basic training requirements of the Indian Air Force (IAF). Post Certification 70 Basic Trainer Aircraft will be initially procured from HAL and balance 36 after operationalisation of HTT-40 fleet in IAF.

To improve the fire power of Indian Navy, the DAC approved procurement of an upgraded version of Super Rapid Gun Mount (SRGM) which is fitted as the main gun on board Navy and Indian Coast Guard (ICG) warships from Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL). The upgraded version of SRGM has enhanced capability to perform against fast manoeuvring targets like missiles and Fast Attack Crafts and increase the maximum engagement rangIn view of the availability of requisite capability for indigenous development of the ammunition, both in terms of ‘Manufacturing’ and ‘Technology’, the DAC approved procurement of 125 mm APFSDS (Armour Piercing Fin Stabilized Discarding Sabot) ammunition for Indian Army as a ‘Design and Development Case’. The ammunition being procured will have a 70 per cent indigenous content.

Last week, the Indian govt announced curbs on the import of 101 weapons and military platforms. These platforms included light combat helicopters, transport aircraft, conventional submarines and cruise missiles by 2024. The move is aimed at safeguarding the domestic manufacturers. As a result, India’s defence stocks surged substantially on Monda

HGV-202F by HTNP Industries

Akola, Aug 12, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - The invisible threat of Coronavirus pulled up dark clouds over Hypersonic testing of it's Hypersonic Glide Vehicle (HGV) HGV-202F that have been developed by Indian defense StartUp HTNP Industries.

Warhead was set to test under the supervision of respective government organizations in June but has to be postponed till the situation normalizes.

The co-founder and CEO of HTNP Industries, Shantanu Gawande have yet to clarify the test schedule of HGV but is expected to do it soon in this month. The HGV is being developed by the Advanced Hypersonic department of HTNP Industries in HTNP Industries's Material Science and Engineering lab (MSEL). HTNP Industries CSO Saurav Chaudhari did said about the progress of HGV and its glide path.

HGV-202F is HTNP Industries's ambitious project to develop the country's first HGV. Following Russian Avangard, Chinese DF-ZF and US's Common Hypersonic Glide Body (C-HGB), HGV-202 is faster and has better accuracy than Chinese DF-ZF.

This test of HGV-202F is about the maneuverability of the Warhead at Hypersonic conditions.

The MSEL has issued a set of guidelines for their scientists and other staff on the prevention of coronavirus infection. As part of precautionary measures, bio-metric attendance has been stopped and priority is being given on complete sanitation of surfaces frequently used by staff.

Meetings and discussions are being done through video conferencing on Skype to ensure the safety of staff and to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. All necessary precautions and guidelines are being followed by the company and its labs.

So they were able to develop the required metallurgy, if it's true then it's amazing.
