India is in talks with Indonesia to export indigenously-made Air Borne Early Warning and Control System (AEWAC).

“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.

“The government has clearly told us that expect technology and system that fall in the strategic we are free to export,” Dr Christopher said.

On being asked how he rated the Indian Private sector and its contribution to defense research and development, Dr Christopher said that for Make in India to be successful in defense systems with the private sector taking the lead “there is need to hand hold” the private companies. Development of defense systems is time consuming and costly. “The government could consider a fund to help out the private sector,” he said.
