Private Design & Research Centers as Pivot for Defense Corridor- A SWOT Analysis

Reason to Encourage R&D Centers

Completes the Defense Ecosystem

On Demand Design & Research Services

Cost Effective than In-house Infrastructure

Retains Hi-Tech Talent within State

Starting Point towards Industry 4.0

Weakness as “Pvt. Ltd.


  • Starting-Up
      Opportunity Size vs. Engagement Reality
      Urgency on R&D vs. Administrative Steps
  • For upcoming entities in defense incubators / innovation centers ?    
      Can MoD organisations extend CARS?
      Can academia share its consulting assignment?

Threat to Growth


  • Breakthroughs in Indian R&D help ‘marketers of foreign OEMs’ convince their respective governments to lift export sanctions over supply of advanced defense equipment to India. Thus, our indigenous R&D efforts often do not become part of equipment in use with the forces. A policy intervention is requested here.

Core Beliefs – Zeus Numerix


  • Numerical simulations is an integral part of defense design and development where systems operate at extreme environments
  • Off-the-shelf packages may be good starting point, but in-depth analysis requires ownership over IP that can be tuned, scaled-up or coupled without any restriction as per design requirement
  • Like everything else in defense, Zeus Numerix will continue to develop indigenous capabilities and self reliance in our chosen area of activities
