KritiKal at the 8th Edition of Strategic Electronics Summit

July 28, 2017:
KritiKal Solutions, a leading product
engineering company, attended the 8th edition of Strategic Electronics Summit
2017 (SES 2017) organized by Electronics Industries Association of India
(ELCINA) and held at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC),
Bengaluru from July 6-7, 2017. Key representatives from KritiKal Solutions (South
India Office) including Ms. Prachi Kalra (Business Head), Mr. Ravitej (Sr.
Manager – Business Development) participated in the event with major objectives
to build strategic alliances with electronics manufacturing services (EMS)
companies and discover a multitude of
opportunities in the defense segment.

Focused on the four eminent areas of India’s
Defense Establishment, Military (Land Systems), Aerospace (Air Force, Avionics),
Naval Systems, and Homeland Security, the two-day event encourages indigenous
production of technology-enabled products & systems used in the defence sector.  More importantly, the conference involved a series
of technical sessions intended towards the role of the Small & Medium industries
to fuel the mission of Indigenization and subsequently evade the concept of

Directorate of Indigenization headed the conference
and brought Industry, Defense Establishment & Government together to
focus on indigenous production and value addition. The conference highlighted certain
areas including the greater importance of defense avionics in the aviation
industry, risks associated with importing for national security equipment, growing
budgets for the Defense & Homeland Security, huge potential for employment
and revenue generation and capability of SMEs and other Indian industry to
participate in manufacturing.

Speaking on the conference participation,
Mr Ravitej Sr Manager- Business Development, stated, “This was the great platform
to upgrade our knowledge through interactions with defense role model players. We met with the key representatives of private
and public sectors specializing in strategic electronics like SLN, CDoT, ECIL,
Anvine Electronics that are serving military, navy,
and avionics.  Also, this arena unveils
new avenues to expand our reach and build new relations to become a part of the
growing defense capability.”

Ms. Prachi Kalra, Business Head-South India,
expressed that” I was highly inspired with Admiral Khanna’s Talk, who discussed
from the point of view of Indian Navy and proposed that Indian MSMEs should
take up Obsolescence Management responsibilities for imported systems and
provide indigenized spare parts and slowly absorb
the technology and eventually become OEMs for Indian Navy.”

She also added “Over the past few years, we
had been working for some renowned Government Defense organizations. So, this
conference provided us a chance to nurture our relationships and build more
valuable products & systems to strengthen our defense establishment with complete indigenization. In the future, we
will be participating in more such events.”
