Kanpur (26.02.2024): In a landmark achievement for India’s defence sector, two mega facilities to manufacture ammunition and missiles by Adani Defence & Aerospace were inaugurated today. These cutting-edge facilities will provide a significant impetus to the nation’s self-reliance and technological advancement in defence. 
The facilities – South Asia’s largest – were inaugurated by Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath, Chief of Army Staff Gen Manoj Pande, GOC-in-C of Central Command Lt Gen N. S. Raja Subramani, Master General of Sustenance Lt Gen Amardeep Singh Aujla in the presence of senior dignitaries from Ministry of Defence and Uttar Pradesh Government. They lauded Adani Defence’s efforts and contribution in creating differentiated capabilities towards strengthening the state and the country.
The occasion coincided with the fifth anniversary of the Balakot airstrike ‘Operation Bandar’ by the Indian Air Force that was a testimony to India’s strategic assertiveness over external threats. Spread over 500 acres, the facility in Kanpur is set to become one of the largest integrated ammunition manufacturing complexes. It will produce high-quality small, medium and large calibre ammunition for the armed forces, paramilitary forces and police. The facility has started rolling out small calibre ammunition, starting with 150 million rounds estimated at 25 per cent of India’s annual requirement. 
Adani Defence & Aerospace is the flagship defence company of the Adani Group. It is also focused on developing and offering unique capabilities across the unmanned segment, counter drones, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technologies and cyber defence. 
The ammunition complex started operations in less than two years of its announcement by the Adani Group during the Uttar Pradesh Investors’ Summit in 2022. An industry 4.0 facility, it has state of the art automation ensuring highest standards in quality, safety and reliability using artificial intelligence and data analytics. Further, being a PESO certified complex, it will also house explosive handling facilities for missiles and precision-guided munitions.
