Defexpo 2014: India, US clear path for Javelin to compete for ATGW requirement

06 February 2014

India's Ministry of Defence (MoD) is in advanced negotiations with the US government to allow the Raytheon/Lockheed Martin-designed Javelin anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) system to compete for an urgent Indian Army requirement.

A senior Pentagon team met with MoD officials in New Delhi on 7 February in an attempt to overcome political and legal obstacles that had earlier precluded the United States from transferring technology to India to locally build Javelins.

"We are looking to address all past questions on the Javelin Joint Venture (JJV) and to move forward positively," William Blair, Raytheon's head of the Asia-Pacific region, told IHS Jane's at the Defexpo exhibition in New Delhi.
