LONDON (BNS): India and United Kingdom have joined hands to develop cutting-edge technologies in the field of defence and security.

India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory have signed a Letter of Arrangement (LOA) in London in this regard on Thursday.

The partnership aims at facilitating collaborative research in the fields of unmanned aerial vehicles, advanced explosives, and factors affecting human performance on the battlefield.

“With a strong history of mutual co-operation, this important new agreement opens the way for collaboration between scientists from DRDO and the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).

“A number of projects are planned to begin in coming months focused on the world-leading research facilities in Dstl and DRDO,” the British Defence Ministry said.

In addition to developing new technologies for equipment, scientists will also explore better ways of defending against chemical and biological threats through protection, decontamination and medical countermeasures, it said in a statement.
