 The threat of Indian missiles has reached other countries. The deal has been signed to buy BrahMos from the Philippines. Meanwhile, Dr. G. Satheesh Reddy, Secretary, Department of Defense Research and Development and Head of Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) said that several countries have shown interest in procuring India’s surface-to-air missiles. He said that more systems with export potential are being developed in the country.

Reddy said that many countries have expressed their desire to take air missile Akash, Astra missile, anti-tank missile, radar and torpedo. More defense systems with export potential with state-of-the-art technology are being developed. He expressed confidence that the export of technologies developed in the country would increase in the coming years.

The DRDO chief said that this is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to develop indigenous technology. The Prime Minister has given a target to develop advanced technology and systems and on that we are engaged. We are developing defense systems with export potential.
