Optimized Electrotech makes India Aatmanirbhar in defence.
With India gearing up to be Aatmanirbhar, an Ahmedabad-based defence tech startup Optimized Electrotech is solving surveillance-related challenges with its hi-tech long-distance imaging systems.
Sandeep Shah, an IIM Calcutta alumnus, who has worked for over 15 years with defence and space sector organizations has started this company to serve the defence, paramilitary forces, aerospace, critical assets and others to safeguard India and bolster the country’s defence exports.
Sandeep Shah, Co-Founder and MD, of Optimized Electrotech, “With rapid disruptions happening in the field of technology, it has become crucial to empower the country’s defence manufacturing capabilities by achieving self-sufficiency in defence tech. We believe that by revolutionizing our approach to Surveillance with the help of new age technologies like AI, Edge Analytics, and advanced Electro-Optics, India can position itself amongst global leaders with countries like Israel, France and many others very soon.”
The products of the company work on a wide range of electromagnetic spectra and are equipped with different types of optics to enable several applications. These can be useful in mart cities, satellite-based imaging, border surveillance, Perimeter Surveillance, access control, Aircraft Tracking and Airport Security, and Emergency S&R Operations
Adds Mr Shah “India is establishing itself as a global economic powerhouse, playing a key role in setting global narratives and leading the world order on many pressing issues. Situational Awareness is of higher significance now than ever before. Artificial Intelligence in determining or locating Friend or Foe can play pivotal role in Surveillance platforms that ensure national security and border integrity. At this critical juncture, it is in the interest of India to achieve self-reliance in areas of high importance such as national safety, strategic security, and tactical superiority to deal with any kind of threat or challenge. The highly advanced surveillance systems are capable of alerting the concerned authorities with information. They can count the number of people, check uniforms, look for weapons, read licence plates of vehicles, and match faces against a database of possible suspects.
