Bharat Forge Ltd (BFL), a leading technology solutions provider and forging company, inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with General Atomics to develop control and distribution technologies related to surface and undersea naval platforms, and advanced projectiles for weapon system platforms.
“Under the terms of the agreement, BFL and General Atomics’ Electromagnetic Systems Group (GA-EMS) will explore opportunities to develop and integrate power generation, storage, control and distribution technologies related to surface and undersea naval platforms, and advanced projectiles for weapon system platforms to address Indian defence requirements, Baba Kalyani, Chairman and Managing Director BFL said.
“This partnership with General Atomics is a firm step in the direction to develop new technologies in-house to produce benchmark products for naval systems, reduce expenditure due to dependency on imports and setting up a strong defence technology and manufacturing vertical within India,” he added.
