DRDO@60 – 60 Years of Achievements
The Defence Research & Development Organisation, DRDO is tasked with designing, developing and producing cutting edge technologies that make our armed forces indomitable not only in the battlefield but also in the minds of our adversaries. With the global paradigm shifting rapidly, the need to strengthen our defence sector assumes greater importance.
The ‘Make in India’ initiative by our honorable Prime Minister has proven to be a shot-in-the-arm not only for the DRDO but for the Aerospace and Defence industry.
