Indian Navy Developments. The Indian Navy embarked on developing indigenous capability and capacity across the complete spectrum of warship construction, right up to equipment and component level. Thus during the last few decades, we rapidly transformed from a Buyer’s Navy to a Builder’s Navy with active participation of the Indian industry towards indigenisation of ship/ submarine design, construction material, machinery, equipment and systems integration.
Indigenous development of Naval systems and platforms are highly specialized, requiring deep understanding in their respective domains. Therefore, development of indigenous capability has been judiciously and very thoughtfully distributed across vertically specialized organizations in the Navy that cater to surface ships design, submarine design, weapon systems integration, armaments, etc. The Navy has also been leveraging the capabilities of DRDO in developing appropriate technologies and products that go into making potent Naval platform.
