23.03.2016 Press release

JSC Rosoboronexport, a subsidiary of Rostec State Corporation, will discuss with its Indian partners joint projects for further modernisation of the Indian armed forces at the DEFEXPO India 2016 International land and naval systems exhibition to be held in Naqueri Quitol in Quepem Taluka of South Goa from 28 to 31 March.

“India is willing to develop its own defence industry in accordance with the “Make in India” programme. We are ready to propose new large-scale projects for implementation in the interests of all military services with the most extensive involvement of Indian businesses, of relevant technology transfers and organisation of joint and license productions. At the present time, for instance, we are in talks on the feasibility of developing Project 75 (I) submarines based on the latest Amur-1650 diesel-electric submarines, and on the procurement of an additional lot of Project 11356 frigates and setting up of their license production in India”, – said Sergei Goreslavsky, deputy director general of JSC Rosoboronexport who heads the joint delegation of Rostec State Corporation and JSC Rosoboronexport.

At the Rosoboronexport stand one will find promotional materials with data on more than 200 items of Russian-made armaments and military equipment.

It is expected that foreign specialists will pay special attention to notable items such as the T-90MS main battle tank, BMP-3 infantry combat vehicle, Kalashnikov assault rifles of the hundredth series, air defence systems such as S-400, Pantsir-S1 and Tor-M2KM (mounted on the Indian-made TATA chassis), Amur-1650 submarine, Project 11356 frigate, Project 11711E large landing ship, Project 21301 rescue vessel, and Project 12701 Alexandrite-E mine countermeasures ship.

At the exhibition JSC Rosoboronexport will also market a new comprehensive project named “Integrated Security Systems” which has absorbed all Russian and global experience amassed in the design and implementation of counter-terrorist and law-enforcement support systems, and a project for the development of an automated tactical command and control system adapted to meet the requirements of the Indian armed forces. The implementation of these projects suggests wide cooperation with Indian companies that will allow them to acquire necessary unique competencies. Besides, by integrating dedicated technical means, equipment and armaments already available in India, development costs of integrated security systems and automated tactical command and control systems can be significantly cut.

The newest Verba man-portable air defence missile system will be shown for the first time at a foreign exhibition. It boasts enhanced combat capabilities, in comparison with its predecessors, including engagement of such small-size targets as cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Rosoboronexport will also explore with Indian partners issues concerning maintenance and upgrading of earlier supplied equipment.

The Russian delegation will hold a press conference at Hall 8 (Media Centre, Conference Room) on 29 March 2016 at 11.15 AM. Journalists are welcome to attend the event.

JSC Rosoboronexpor also invites all interested specialists to see presentations at Hall 8 (Media Centre, Conference Room):
- “Integrated Security Systems” on 29 March 2016 from 13:45 till 14:15
- “Automated Tactical Command and Control System” on 30 March 2016 from 11:15 till 12:15.

Integrated Security Systems

The project is aimed at the development of integrated security systems required for protection of vital installations, various administrative formations, state borders, coastal zones, etc. All of them are based on the automated information system “Safe City” designed to create a unified protected information environment, provide control of existing urban security means, and maintain smooth information interaction between municipal and law-enforcement agencies. Technical facilities of the system are designed to provide situational awareness reports, predict probable changes of the situation, send alerts and dispatch law-enforcement assets.

JSC Rosoboronexport is ready to supply a whole set of special-purpose equipment, automated command, control and communication systems, armaments and police hardware intended for law-enforcement and anti-terrorist groups.
The most vivid examples of its effective use are successful measures undertaken during the Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014 and at international forums and summits in 2015 and 2016. Automated Tactical Command and Control System

The automated tactical command and control system is designed to create unified information space over a tactical zone and enhance effectiveness of command and control of military units. It is a complex of assets integrated by objectives, structure and combat control algorithms.

The core of the system is made of command and control vehicles, programmable technical systems of various purposes and basing, including individual sets carried by military personnel. They are used to build a modular networked digital communication system providing open and closed telephone and radio frequency communications as well as high-speed data transmission.

The project envisages adaptation of the system to meet the requirements of the Indian Army as regards its forces organisational structure, combat employment tactics and available weapons. It also makes provisions for employing national communication assets.
