Defence Technology and Trade Initiative
The Defence Technology and Trade Initiative (DTTI) was established by the United States and India on 2012 to boost defence relations and strengthen India?s defence base. It is a flexible mechanism that helps the senior government officials of the two countries to promote opportunities for co-production and co-development of required defence equipment and systems.
India and the US have signed a Project Agreement for Air-Launched Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (ALUV) under the DTTI. The agreement is a significant step towards enhancing collaborations on defence technology development. It was overseen by the Joint Working Group on Air System.
