New Delhi: Indian private sector technology company, Dynamatic Technologies Limited, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the government’s Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIR-CSIO) to jointly design, develop and manufacture futuristic solutions for defence and aerospace, healthcare and agriculture industries.
“Our partnership with CSIO is aligned to Government of India’s vision of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat‘. Symbiotic relationships between private sector and government research labs will go a long way in our endeavour to build a self-reliant India,” Dynamatic Technologies’ chief executive officer and managing director Dr Udayant Malhoutra said in a company statement today.
Dynamatic Technologies has been pursuing indigenisation of defence production in partnership with Public Sector Undertakings and Defence Research and Development Organisation since the early 1990s.
“This partnership between CSIO and Dynamatic is aimed at making futuristic solutions for defence and security, healthcare and agriculture industry,” Dynamatic Hydraulics’s executive director and global chief operations officer Arvind Mishra said.
Dynamatic Technologies manufactures highly engineered products and solutions for the aerospace and defence, hydraulics and automotive businesses. The company has manufacturing facilities in India, the United Kingdom, Germany and the United States, and is in the global supply chain of leading Original Equipment Manufacturers in these sectors.
Dynamatic has three design laboratories in India and Europe, and is a leading private research and development organisation, with numerous inventions and patents to its credit.
Additionally, the company owns and operates a sophisticated metrology laboratory, a material sciences laboratory and a research farm. The company and its subsidiaries employ around 65 scientists and 650 engineers with expertise in mechanical engineering, advanced computer aided engineering, materials and metallurgical engineering, fluid dynamics and defence and aerospace research.
Council of Scientific and Industrial Research or CSIR imparts and undertakes cutting-edge research in various areas of science, engineering, design, management, and humanities. Along with CSIR, Dynamatic is engaged in the business of designing and building highly engineered products for aeronautic, hydraulic, automotive and security applications.
To tap the synergy of these two organisations, they have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop collaborative activities in the research areas of mutual interest, on a basis of equality and reciprocity in the areas of multi-spectral surveillance payloads of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), spraying technologies including electrostatic techniques for agricultural purposes using UAS, Instrumentation for ventilators and respirators and Instrumentation for homeland security applications.
Prof. (Dr) S. Anantha Ramakrishna, who is the Director of CSIR-CSIO, believes that partnering with Dynamatic was an extremely strategic one for his Chandigarh-based organisation and is hopeful that it will lead to large scale translation of CSIO’s research into products.
