‘Make in India’ and ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ have become strengths of new India, and the nation is lauding that defence production had crossed the Rupee One-Lakh Crore mark. The book Road to Atmanirbhar Bharat in Aerospace aims to compile essential technologies and capabilities India should actively pursue in aerospace. A group of leading domain experts have identified challenges and prospective opportunities in each field and recommended a strategy for building foundational capabilities. They analyse the current ecosystems in every domain and determine methods to expedite research and development in a timely and cost-efficient approach. The book is intended to guide policymakers, technocrats, public and private sector enterprises, military forces, and civil sector operators. All those interested in aviation, whether they are students, academicians, or the uninitiated general public, will find this book an interesting read.
