On the other hand, the Centre for Defence Innovation and Industry Collaboration (CDIIC) is a vital contributor to the Southern Defence Corridor, allowing regional MSMEs to become import substitution partners for the armed services. CDIIC has partnered with the Indian Army to host the famous “Southern Star Army Academia Industry Interface – S2A2I2” in Coimbatore on May 28th and 29th, 2024. This event intends to identify current difficulties in the defence industry and find answers to them, while also encouraging Coimbatore enterprises to improve research and development for defence-related equipment in order to jointly benefit and meet the twin needs of national security and Indian armed forces.

These programmes emphasise the relevance of academics in creating next-generation defence technologies, as well as the role of industry in meeting the technical demands of the Indian Army, with the ultimate goal of achieving self-reliance in defence manufacturing.
