Thales and Bharat Dynamics seal production teaming agreement

14th January 2021 - 12:45 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Starstreak components to be made in India.

Thales Air Defence on 13 January signed a teaming agreement with Indian company Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL), covering future production of components for the Starstreak high-velocity missile system.

The agreement was reached with the support of the Indian and UK governments.

BDL will use Indian-manufactured components to build missiles for existing and future Starstreak customers, including the UK.

Starstreak has been exported to Indonesia, Thailand, South Africa and Malaysia in various configurations, notes Shephard Defence Insight. 

The teaming agreement was signed almost four years after Thales and BDL signed an MoU to explore technology transfer opportunities for Starstreak.

The MoU was signed with the support of the UK government to align with the Indian government's 'Make in India' policy.
