“The AEWAC exports would be the first major export of defense systems from India under Prime Minister led government and the move fits into the government’s push to reduce import of weapon systems and increase exports,” Dr Christopher Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Director General told NDTV Monday.

Development of defense systems is time consuming and costly. “The government could consider a fund to help out the private sector,” he said.
