New Delhi: Indian brands have been following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘vocal for local’ or localisation vision for a while now. Emphasising on a self-reliant India or ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’, the government has asked that products not just be made in India, but also for the promotion of local brands, manufacturing, and supply chain.
Against the backdrop of the aggression at Indian Borders, a range of modern armaments are being procured to enhance the capabilities of India’s armed forces. There is also a thrust on achieving self-reliance in the defence sector.
A unit of the Indian Armed Forces procured a few sets of multi rotor drones from Johnnette Technologies, an Indian Drone manufacturer for specific use cases. From this procurement the intent of the Indian Armed Forces to modernise their arsenal is quite evident.
Johnnette Technologies is a leading provider of tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Unmanned Ground Vehicles for the defence sector and application oriented products for the commercial sector. These drones will help in modernisation of the Indian Defence and the company also claims to have more than 60 per cent of indigenisation of the manufacturing. Johnnette has also supplied many drones to the Indian Defence units in the past.
