HSTPL Receives First Order for revolutionary IMCS from the Indian Armed Forces
Hyper Stealth Technologies Private Limited (HSTPL), has become the first iDEX winner to receive an order from the Indian armed forces. The company, which specialises in the manufacture of stealth management solutions had earlier bagged the ‘Innovation for Defence Excellence’ iDEX start-up challenge award for ‘Adaptive Stealth Coating Solutions.’
The market potential for IMCS in India alone is seen at one billion dollars. In addition, there is a large export market for this cutting-edge technology.
The technology being offered and incorporated in the new product reduces the detection range for all modern warfare sensors (IR, thermal and radar) by 50 percent, hence offering additional protection to armed forces platforms and service personnel and increases chances of survival.
The same technology can be used in all the three services and can be used for aircraft, UAVs and other aerial vehicles; shelters for air force; stealth frigates, submarine periscopes for the navy, besides tanks, armoured vehicles, artillery guns, bunkers among others for the Army.
Co-founder of HSTPL, Manish Dalmia said, “We are extremely honoured to receive the first order in the history of iDEX. Following our Prime Minister’s dream of ‘Atamanirbhar Bharat’, we offer a 100 percent indigenously designed, developed and manufactured, Made in India, stealth solution for our armed forces.”
He added, “We believe that every solider saved is a family saved, protecting our protectors and safeguarding the nation through our IMCS would be a force multiplier and the importance of it can be seen in terms of the increased survival chances of our soldiers.”
According to Dalmia, “To beat the challenge of being detected through sensors Hyper Stealth worked on the development, design and manufacture of stealth solutions to protect our armed forces for a multitude of threats and challenges in the modern war scenario. Unseen is unbeaten—you can’t hit something you can’t see.”
