Carborundum Universal Ltd. signs pact with DRDO for licensing missile technology

Murugappa group firm Carborundum Universal Ltd. (CUMI) has signed an agreement with DRDO’s Research Centre Imarat (RCI) Laboratory for licensing technology to manufacture “Ceramic Radome (GELCAST Process) Technology” used in missile systems.

Ceramic radome technology is considered state-of-the-art missile technology world-over. Since missiles undergo extremely high surface temperatures while traveling through the atmosphere, ceramic is considered optimal radome material. The design of ceramic radomes for defence activities requires specific expertise and stringent testing at every stage to ensure reliability and accuracy.
