The Indian company PEL, active in the field of explosives and solid propellants, and the French defense company Nexter, specialized in land systems and ammunition have decided to tie-up for manufacturing Bi-Modular Charge Systems (BMCS) in order to respond to the needs of the Indian Ministry of Defense.
The partners decided to answer to the BMCS RFP relative to a 10 year contract by manufacturing in India, combining the experience of Nexter with the pyrotechnics knowledge of PEL. The proposed product, which is the key of artillery propulsion, is 100% designed within Nexter Group in accordance with the Indian technical requirements.
Through a long-term partnership, PEL and Nexter are willing to build up one of the first Indian private manufacturer of ammunition. This project responds to the Indian government objective to develop a private robust source of ammunition.
