October 6th, 2016: Alpha Design Technologies Pvt. Ltd., a leading Bengaluru based manufacturer and technological services provider in India's defence and paramilitary markets, today announced the winning of a prestigious multi-million dollar contract from Elbit Systems, an Israel-headquartered international high-technology company engaged in a wide range of defence, homeland security and commercial programs. The contract involves manufacturing of 600 VHF communication devices for Exports and later for large scale manufacture to cater for the requirements of our Country’s Armoured Corps.

The Bengaluru based company is widely known for its capabilities in delivering defence electronics and aero structures, as well as R&D and manufacturing. Further, Alpha has been strongly supporting the ‘Make In India’ campaign of the Central Government.

Alpha has planned new initiatives and investments to cater for expected growth, taking into consideration current and future challenges in securing India’s borders from external threats. The company has made a detailed analysis of how it can take a lead role to support our defence forces, particularly by quicker supplies and induction of new equipment, to fill the gaps in our border defences.

Speaking at the announcement, Colonel H. S. Shankar, Chairman and Managing Director, Alpha Design Technologies, said, “It is a matter of immense pride for us that we have been selected to provide high end VHF communication units for Exports and concurrently to fulfil critical communication needs of the Indian Army. Our equipment has been selected on the basis of international specifications. With an earnest objective of securing the nation’s borders, we look forward to supporting our brave Armed Forces for other requirements as well.”  

He further added, “Unhindered and top-notch communication has emerged as an essential element to winning battles in this era of modern warfare. In these circumstances, there is a requirement for boosting indigenous defence manufacturing to international standards, as it will make our country self-reliant and to make up the deficiencies of communication equipment for our Armoured Fleet”.

Col. Shankar further stated that he was a member of Defence Industry Delegation which visited Forward Areas in Kashmir just before the hostilities, arranged by Army HQ.  On this basis, a detailed analysis has been made to further improve the equipment availability and enhance the technological capabilities to cater for Operational requirements.  These pertain to Opt-electronics, C3I and Surveillance equipment.  A series of upgraded indigenous equipment have been quickly developed / upgraded by ADTL and these are being offered to Army, particularly, to Northern Command, to enhance the Op-readiness.
