Over the last few years, India has been encouraging innovators to focus on new-age technologies to empower the country’s defence sector.
One such defence tech startup making a mark is Ahmedabad-based Optimized Electrotech.
Sandeep Shah founded Optimized Electroctech to solve surveillance-related challenges and use deeptech to work with defence, aerospace, airports, critical assets, and other industries.
Founded in 2017 by Sandeep Shah along with Anil Yekkala, Dharin Shah, Kuldeep Saxena, and Purvi Shah, Optimized Electrotech aims to solve surveillance-related challenges with its long-distance imaging systems.
The make-in-India electro-optics surveillance startup aims to serve the defence, paramilitary forces, aerospace, airports, critical assets, and other industries, along with a huge export market.
In November 2019, media reports revealed that the Indian government was looking to fund at least 250 defence startups over the next five years to come up with new, cutting-edge solutions for the armed forces.
The Indian Ministry of Defence earmarked Rs 500 crore for its Innovations for Defence Excellence (iDEX) initiative to find new technologies to help the Indian armed forces.
Sandeep launched the startup after working in defence and space for more than 15 years.
Sandeep, Co-founder and Managing Director, says, “Electro-optics has various applications, including surveillance for smart cities, satellite-based imaging, border surveillance, medical imaging, access control, machine vision, automotive (advanced driver-assistance systems, i.e. ADAS), and consumer electronics.
Last year, Optimized Electrotech was announced as the winner of IDEX (Innovation for Defense Excellence), Make-in-India for Defence challenge, and received a grant of Rs 1.5 crore.
