The Innovation for Defence Excellence (iDEX) initiative recently had the honor of hosting a delegation from Australia, led by Director General – Warfare Innovation (DG-WIN) Australia, Mr. Kavanagh D. John. The discussions held during this visit focused on the iDEX framework, potential defense industrial collaborations, and interactions with iDEX innovation winners.

The meeting provided a valuable opportunity to explore avenues of cooperation and knowledge sharing between India and Australia in the field of defense technology and innovation. iDEX, known for fostering innovation and collaboration in the defense sector, was keen to engage with the Australian delegation in discussions related to defense capabilities and advancements.

During the visit, the Australian Delegation was introduced to several innovative solutions and inventions that have been procured by the Indian Navy. Notably, the Australian Navy has expressed strong interest in the ‘Varuna’ heavy-lift utility drone, which was developed by Pune-based Sagar Defence Engineering with the specific requirements of the Indian Navy in mind.

The ‘Varuna’ drone serves a crucial role in naval operations as it is designed for the transfer of cargo, storage, and personnel between sailing warships. Its ability to efficiently facilitate logistics and resource management at sea has garnered attention from naval forces around the world.
