    Guwahati: The 13th edition of the Aero India international air show, hosted by the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), begins on Wednesday till February 5, 2021, at Air Force Station Yelahanka, Bengaluru.

    On the first day, defence minister Rajnath Singh will release the DRDO export compendium, a new procedure for Design, Development and Production of Military Aircraft and Airborne Stores (DDPMAS) document and other documents.

    The government will formally seal the ₹48,000 crore deal to procure 83 Tejas light combat aircraft from state-run aerospace behemoth Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd which will be the biggest ever indigenous defence procurement programme.

    The contract will be signed between the Ministry of Defence and the HAL at the ‘Aero India’ aerospace exhibition in Bengaluru.

    Reportedly, the DRDO will exhibit its latest defense technologies and demonstrate many systems. One of the DRDO’s major attractions will include flying displays of Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) system, Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas and LCA Navy.

    A negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test report (dated January 31, 9 am or later) is a must to attend the three-day event, where each day only 3,000 visitors will be allowed at the flight display venue in view of the pandemic.

    The DRDO has also planned an enriching experience of indigenous defence technologies and syatems in a bid to integrate stakeholders of defence systems development in the country. As many as 30 first time models will be on display.

    Keeping in view the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, multimedia-based presentations and product and technology brochures are being provided digitally for download based on QR code.
