Tata Industrial Services of India and the German defense manufacturer Diehl BGT Defence have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for industrial cooperation and offsets support in defense and security. The agreement paves the way for Tata Industrial Services to develop supply solutions for major aerospace and defense projects, supporting the Indian offset requirements. For the German side, the MoU established a channel allowing Diehl BGT Defence to introduce relevant technology and products in the strategic Indian market, strengthening their position for cooperation with Indian partners, participating in key domestic programs.
The agreement opens technology transfer opportunities associated with the European Typhoon, considered by India as one of the leading contenders for the Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) and its weapons.
The product spectrum ranges from guided missiles for Army, Air Force and Navy, intelligent munition solutions up to reconnaissance, self-protection and training systems.
