IAF brings out 10-year modernisation plan

Indian Air Force (IAF) has recently bought out its Indigenisation Roadmap (2016-2025) and is set to share it with the private sector.  The plan is to share details of its requirements to enable private sector players to set up manufacturing facilities and replace imports. The report includes details from aircraft tyres to rotor blades, 3D printing technology and future technologies needed, with specific quantities needed over 10 years. It also lists out 174 parts (spares, subsystems and parts), that are in dire need of being indigenised. The report lists maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) as a major area for industry participation, for creating a defence MRO in private sector facilitated by liberal government policies.
