UK’s Minister for Defence Procurement Jeremy Quin said the country is looking to build industrial partnerships for future defence technologies with India, with maritime and fighter engines, helicopters and undersea technologies as possible areas of cooperation.

In an interview with ET ahead of defence minister Rajnath Singh’s visit to UK, where he is likely to be accompanied by defence industry delegation, Quin said the aim is to build upon existing industrial partnerships within combat air, complex weapons and maritime technologies to co-create future defence products.

β€œThe Royal Navy and British industry now stand ready to co-produce an indigenous Electric Propulsion capability in support of the Indian Navy. The UK is also working with India on strategic collaboration for Modern Fighter Aircraft and Jet Engine Advanced Core Technology, and co-production of Laser Beam Riding Man Portable Air Defence (MANPAD) Systems,” said Quin.

Describing the UK as a serious partner of choice for India, the minister said other areas that can be discussed include helicopters and underwater battle space. There is also interest for cooperation in development of next generation fighter jets.
