MUMBAI (PTI): India Navy's Design Directorate has set up a stall on innovation and developments by Naval Dockyard Mumbai and Weapons and Electronic Systems Engineering Establishment, at the 'Make in India' week underway here.

The Navy has set up stalls exhibiting indigenisation initiatives and innovations undertaken, especially in the domain of ship building and repair with the theme 'Self Reliance through Indigenisation & Innovation'.

Of the ten focus centres of the exhibition, the Indian Navy is participating actively in the 'Defence' pavilion, a Defence release said.

Navy has also prepared a stall on innovation and developments by Naval Dockyard (Mumbai) and Weapons and Electronic Systems Engineering Establishment (WESEE).

WESEE section lays out the requirements of Indian Navy in terms of upcoming technologies in fields of Information Technology and Combat Management Systems.

The stall is looking at partnership development in fields of interest to the Indian Navy, the release said.

Standing out as an example of indigenisation to the country, Indian Navy has transformed from a buyer's Navy to builders navy over the last five decades, the release said.
