Under a new agreement Indian and British scientists are to work together to develop cutting-edge technologies for defence and security.

The UK MOD's Chief Scientific Adviser, Professor Sir Mark Welland, has signed a Letter of Arrangement in London with Dr Vijay Kumar Saraswat, Director General of India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

The two countries will pool their world-class science and engineering expertise to work on projects such as unmanned aerial vehicles, advanced explosives, and factors affecting human performance on the battlefield.

With a strong history of mutual co-operation, this important new agreement opens the way for collaboration between scientists from DRDO and the UK's Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl). A number of projects are planned to begin in coming months focused on the world-leading research facilities in Dstl and DRDO.
