India is gearing up to export ground systems for the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, with the missiles expected to be dispatched to the Philippines by March this year. This marks a crucial milestone in India’s defence export efforts, as highlighted by DRDO chairman Dr Samir V Kamat in a recent interview with ANI.

According to Dr Kamat, the export process is set to commence within the next 10 days, with the ground systems taking the lead. The first set of BrahMos missile systems is anticipated to reach the Philippines by the end of March. This venture is part of a monumental defence export contract valued at USD 375 million, making it the largest such agreement India has ever entered into with a foreign nation.

Expressing optimism about the future of defence exports, Dr Kamat stated, “I am sure over the coming years exports are going to become a very important part of our portfolio.” He emphasized the growing role of exports in the defence sector, citing examples such as hull-mounted sonars, lightweight torpedoes, and radar systems that India has successfully exported to various countries.

Philippines Deal Details

The deal with the Philippines, signed in January 2022, focuses on the supply of the shore-based anti-ship variant of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile. This underscores the global demand for India’s advanced defence capabilities and establishes the country as a reliable partner in the international arms market.

DRDO’s Export AchievementsDr Kamat highlighted DRDO’s success in exports, noting that products developed by the organization have either been inducted into the defence system or received Acceptance of Necessity (AoN) from the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC). The total worth of these DRDO-developed products stands at approximately Rs 4.94 lakh crores. Furthermore, he emphasized the accelerated pace of product development, with 60-70% of inducted products accomplished in the last 5-7 years.BRAHMOS Supersonic Cruise Missile

The BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile system, a joint venture between India and Russia under BrahMos Aerospace, stands as one of the world’s most successful missile programs. Recognized as the best and fastest precision-guided weapon globally, BRAHMOS has significantly bolstered India’s deterrence capabilities in the 21st century. The next-generation variant of the missile, characterized by smaller, lighter, and smarter dimensions, is designed for deployment on a broader range of modern military platforms.

This landmark deal not only strengthens diplomatic ties but also positions India as a key player in the global defence arena. The successful export of cutting-edge defence technology marks a significant milestone in India’s journey towards becoming a leading contributor to international security and stability.
