DEFTECH 2017 was dominated by DRDO who wanted Private Sector to invest in Developing Technologies for Defense Sector but wanted to own IPR, also wanted right totransfer IPR not created by it to Competitors who may be better at commercialization. Industry Big & Small was reluctant to accept DRDO terms and stalemate continued.
Defense sector deserves Best & Latest technology, not justMilitary Hardware & Civilian Products Also. I remember My Army Officer Uncles fought in all wars + UNO Observer in Vietnam – Would get FERGUSON TRACTOR or French Home Appliances not available to civilians. Indian Railways was built to connect Army Cantonments. Defense Forces had best CLUBS, Golf Courses, Horses, Own Dairy Farms, MESS, Schools, and Hospitals etc.
All Defense Establishments must get Bests of Civilian Technologies & Services first. Cantonments may best of Telecom, Public Services, Broadband, Solar Rooftops, Surgical Hospitals, Schools, Colleges, Renovated First Class Homes than Old Barracks.
But unfortunately not happening now.
USA developed Technologies for Defense Sector – Internet, Super Computers, Imaging Technologies etc that were then transferred to Commercial sector –
1. DRDO is developing INFERIOR technology,
2. DRDO wants to own IPR which are developed by Private Sector,
3. Wants rights to Transfer Technology Developed by Pvt Sector for DRDO to 3rd Party.
4. Doesn’t Guarantee ‘ORDERS’ which comes from User Organizations.
5. DRDO itself doesn’t want to Commercialize Technologies & have no resources.
What is disappointing is that LAMEDUCK technologies are introduced after many-many years of trials like the Run Flat Tire Technology developed over 8 years for Air Force Fighter jets that cost even Rs.500 Cr – BMW Car cost Rs.0.5 Cr has better technology.
It required just 10 minutes to search for Run Flat Tire Technology introduced by BMW – it runs 50miles on flat tire at 50mph.
This professional Inventor can create Hundreds of Inventions for Defense/Commercial sector – there are thousands who can Reverse Engineer technologies but must Let Them Work, Let Them Own IPR and GoI should speedily grant patents.
Private Sector & Experts to get Access to DRDO Testing Facilities.
