Systems developed are evaluated by the Users and productions are done mostly through Ordnance Factory Board and Defence Public Sector Undertakings. Specifications of the systems are drawn from the technical, functional and operational requirements given by the Users. Extensive Quality Assurance / Quality Control practices are followed right from the design stage under arrangements of Director General Quality Assurance to bring out reliable products. Systems developed are evaluated thoroughly to meet all the technical and quality requirements and demonstrated in the User Trials. Transfer of Technology is given to production agencies with relevant documentation for smooth production.
