Vision. To counter the problems of spiraling import costs of equipment and spares, and embargoes/ technology denial by foreign countries on a long term basis, the Navy aims to achieve Self-Reliance in maintaining and supporting its vital assets through Indigenous Development route within the ambit of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).
Acquiring and evolving technical competence and processes required for indigenous development of equipment and systems for new ship/ submarine construction programmes and indigenisation of systems for sustenance of our ships/ submarines in service. This complex capability building hinges hugely on ‘Make In India’ initiatives of GoI and promotion of long-tern partnership with Indian defence industries. The Indian Navy has formulated mechanisms to garner this capability for complete self-reliance.
