New Delhi [India], October 4 (ANI): Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will attend the Indian Navy's Naval Innovation and Indigenisation Organisation (NIIO) seminar 'Swavlamban' in Delhi on Wednesday.
Singh will be attending the seminar at 4.30 pm today in Delhi.
"Looking forward to seeing the technology developed under the SPRINT initiative launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year. This is proving to be a Game Changer for the defence innovation ecosystem," the Defence Minister said in a post on X.
He further said, "I shall also be launching the exciting new DISC Challenges for the industry under Innovations for Defence Excellence (iDEX)."Earlier in July 2022, Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled 'SPRINT Challenges', which are aimed at giving a boost to the usage of indigenous technology in the Indian Navy.
As a part of the 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav', NIIO, in conjunction with the Defence Innovation Organisation (DIO), aims at inducting at least 75 new indigenous technologies/products into the Indian Navy. This collaborative project is named SPRINT (Supporting Pole-Vaulting in RD through iDEX, NIIO and TDAC).
The seminar aims to engage Indian industry and academia towards achieving self-reliance in the Defence sector. (ANI)
