Navratna defence enterprise — Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) showcased defence products at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) 2017 Exhibition at London in UK between September 12 and 15.
 
BEL displayed Akash Weapon System (AWS), the medium-range, surface-to-air missile defence system and Weapon Locating Radar, the field artillery radar system developed for the Indian Army. Subsystems of Akash such as Troop Level Radar, Troop Control Centre, Troop Level Radar Power Supply, Missiles and Missile Launcher, along with Weapon Locating Radar were also showcased.
 
The AWS is a success story of Make in India initiative. Barring a few electronic components, every bit of Akash has the Made in India tag. It is a role model for public-private partnership. The missile system has been realised through professional project management spearheaded by BEL. 
 
While the radars, control centres, simulators, associated support systems and the integrated software for the system are provided by BEL, the missiles are from Bharat Dynamics Limited and remaining sub-systems are manufactured and supplied by other private industry players.
