Barhat Dynamics is highlighting its well-known Akash air defense missile system at Defexpo 2016, being hold from 28-31 March in Goa. The Akash system has been jointly developed by the Indian Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Bharat Dynamics Ltd (BEL) serves as nodal agency for Akash SAM production for the Indian army.

At DefExpo 2016, DRDO presents its latest development of Medium Range Surface to Air Missile (MRSAM) and its long range, subsonic cruise missile Nirbhay designed and developed in India by the Indian Defence Research and Development Organisation.

India's Defence Research and Development Organisation chose the 9th edition of Defexpo exhibition to unveil two new unmanned ground systems: the Mobile Autonomous Stabilisation System (MASS), dedicated to protection of ground areas and airspace, and the Mobile Autonomous Robot System (MARS), designed to handle and secure IED's and hazardous objects.

The local-made Pinaka multibarrel rocket launch (MBRL) system is now in service with the Indian armed forces to replace the old Soviet-made BM-21. The system has a maximum range of 40 km for Mark-I and 65 km for Mark-II, and can fire a salvo of 12 HE rockets in 44 seconds, neutralising a target area of 3.9 km2.

In May 2015, it was announced that the Indian army is set to get an artillery boost with a proposal being moved to raise six new regiments of the local-made Pinaka Multi-Launcher Rocket System (MLRS). Sources said the Indian army has moved a proposal to add six new regiments with a total of 108 launchers, to its existing holding of three regiments to plug gaps in its artillery units.
