Supersonic cruise missile BRAHMOS, successfully inducted into the Indian Army and Navy, will soon be deployed by Russian defence services, for which modalities are being worked out, said Dr. A Sivathanu Pillai, CEO and MD, BrahMos Aerospace.
"A high power delegation, led by the Russian Deputy Prime Minister, recently visited the company and reviewed and appreciated the induction and progress of BRAHMOS missiles into the Indian Army and Navy. After discussions, it was decided to induct them into Russian services," Dr. Pillai told reporters on Saturday.
The delegation would soon work out modalities to induct them into their services, particularly the naval fleet, he said.
Dr. Pillai said plans are afoot to conduct underwater tests of the submarine variant of the missile. If successful, the company would seek the Government's nod for its induction into the naval fleet, he said.
He said the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is in the process of designing and developing various products for the health sector like lightweight calipers and potable critical care ventilator.
"For its further development, surgeons, doctors and scientists must interact and work to indigenously manufacture products and to bring down cost of medical appliances," he said.
Dr. Pillai, also Chief Controller, R&D, DRDO, was here to attend the sixth Convocation of Association of Minimal Access Surgeons of India.
