Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) has inked a Technical Collaboration Agreement (TCA) with CSIR-NAL for the design and engineering, production and commercialisation of an Electronic Target System (ETS).
The pact by the defence PSU is for a modern training aid meant to enhance the marksmanship of defence and paramilitary forces during live firing exercises on the field.
The agreement was signed by Anandi Ramalingam, Director-Marketing, BEL, and Jitendra J Jhadav, Director CSIR-NAL, in the presence of Gowtama M V, Chairman and Managing Director, BEL, and other senior officers of BEL and CSIR-NAL, at the BEL corporate office in Bengaluru on August 14.
The pact marks a new beginning in ties between BEL and CSIR labs for developing products targeting niche market segments.
Designed by CSIR-NAL, ETS is a technically superior and cost-effective solution for police, paramilitary and defence personnel looking at acquiring sharp shooting skills in small fire arms, as well as honing their proficiency in tactical field firing.
