Indian Navy to soon release updated indigenisation roadmap

The Indian Navy will soon unveil an updated new indigenisation roadmap with a focus on specific initiatives to achieve self-reliance in acquiring various critical technologies and platforms to boost its overall military might.

The roadmap will be released at the second edition of the annual ‘Swavlamban’ seminar to be held on October 4 and 5.

Itis worth mentioning that the Indian Navy is actively increasing its use of indigenous components in the construction of warships and submarines, with the goal of reaching up to 90 percent indigenous content across all aspects.

Vice Admiral Sanjay Jasjit Singh announced this initiative, stating that the Navy aims to achieve 90 percent indigenous content in the areas of shipbuilding, including “float,” “move,” and “fight.”

These three components encompass various aspects of naval warships, including the structure, propulsion, and weaponry.

According to Admiral R Hari Kumar, Chief of the Indian Navy, significant progress has already been made in this endeavor.

The Navy has achieved a remarkable level of self-reliance, with 95 percent indigenous components in the “float” category, 60 to 65 percent in “move” components, and 50 percent in “fight” components.

These components range from the structure and propelling systems to weapons and sensors.

Noteworthy, the Navy resolved to develop 75 technologies at the Swavlamban seminar last year and the aim has been achieved.
