Tata Power and Javelin Joint Venture have signed an agreement to explore the production of a anti-armour missile system to meet Indian requirements, the Indian company said.

The system will include using the missile on ground combat vehicles or via infantry or helicopters, said the company. The agreement was signed via Tata Power’s Strategic Engineering Division, a weapons manufacturer.

“Since the early 1980s, Tata Power SED has established its R&D and “Make in India’ credentials, as part of Dr.Kalam’s Integrated Guided Missile Development Program,” said Rahul Chaudhry, Chief Executive Officer at Tata Power SED.

“Now, our partnership with the JJV will bring the world’s best technology to our soldiers enabling battlefield Supremacy. Indian industry will benefit immensely from the depth and range of this planned technology transfer and co-development.”

Javelin Joint Venture team is a partnership between Raytheon and Lockheed Martin.

Lockheed Martin is an American global aerospace, defense, security and advanced technologies company whereas Raytheon is a American defense contractor and industrial corporation with core manufacturing concentrations in weapons and military and commercial electronics

John Halvey, Javelin Joint Venture president at Raytheon Missile Systems said,”This agreement brings together three World leaders in aerospace and defense technology to extend Javelin to new customers, new applications and new platforms. With this deal, we are also reinforcing our continued support of the “Make in India”.”

Rich Benton, Javelin Joint Venture vice president said,”The Combat-proven Javelin Continues to fulfil a critical precision-strike role with our domestic and international partners. We look forward to working with Tata Power SED to maximize the versatilityand lethality of Javelin on these new platforms.”

India has recently allowed more foreign investment into defence manufacturing — an area where the country has been found to be lacking.

India typically imports most of its high-end weapons, partly because of a nexus of suppliers, middlemen and bureaucrats. The country recently inducted Tejas lightweight fighter into its air force.
