New Delhi: Many would rub their eyes as India, the world's largest arms importer, for the first time showcases an array of its weapons and equipment for export at an international exhibition in South Korea next week, signalling its intention to be a player in the global defence bazaar.

At the Aerospace and Defence Exhibition (ADEX-2013) in the South Korean capital Seoul, the indigenous defence systems will draw the world's attention to the country's emerging capabilities, its strength and expertise in design, development and production.

On display at the six-day event beginning Oct 29 will be state-of-the art weapon systems, platforms, sensors, communication systems and equipment designed and developed by the Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) along with its production partners like Tata Power and state-run Bharat Electronics.

Among these would be the Akash surface-to-air missile (SAM), Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (LCA), Pragati surface-to-surface missile (SSM), an airborne early warning system (AEWS), expandable high-speed aerial target Abhayas, and other high-technology systems like sonar, battlefield radars, and identification-friend-or-foe (IFF) systems.

"A large number of products developed by DRDO and produced by Indian industry, including those being displayed at ADEX-2013, have immense export potential," says the DRDO.
