De­fence Sys­tem In­te­gra­tion Com­plex


The Bharat Elec­tron­ics Ltd (BEL) is plan­ning to es­tab­lish a De­fence Sys­tems In­te­gra­tion Com­plex in Andhra Pradesh. Foun­da­tion stone for the 360-hec­tre com­plex at Palasamu­dram in Anantapur dis­trict was laid late last year. This new mis­sile sys­tems in­te­gra­tion com­plex for BEL will fur­ther strengthen the de­fence ca­pa­bil­i­ties in the coun­try and en­able man­u­fac­tur­ing, in­te­gra­tion and test­ing of on­go­ing and up­com­ing projects in the area of sur­face-to-air mis­sile sys­tems.

BEL has taken var­i­ous ini­tia­tives to en­hance pro­cure­ment from MSMEs (mi­cro, small and medium en­ter­prises) to­wards achiev­ing the goals of ‘Make in In­dia’ pol­icy. BEL has also iden­ti­fied MSMEs (tech­nol­ogy part­ners) and will be work­ing with them in col­lab­o­ra­tive R&D mode based on their ca­pa­bil­i­ties and BEL’s re­quire­ments in fu­ture.

BEL’s unit at Machili­pat­nam, Kr­ishna dis­trict in Andhra Pradesh, has been sourc­ing items re­quired for the man­u­fac­ture of elec­tro-op­tic prod­ucts from MSMEs of Andhra Pradesh state. Fur­ther, some of the com­po­nents, sub­sys­tems, me­chan­i­cal parts re­quired for set­ting up of the mis­sile in­te­gra­tion com­plex at Palasamu­dram will be sourced from pri­vate ven­dors/SMEs of Andhra Pradesh.
