Webinar - Technical Textiles in Defence with IAF

28 February 2022 | 1500-1700 hrs

The Indian Armed Forces utilise several types of specialized functional textiles, in addition to a range of conventional technical textile products. As they march towards modernization through Indigenisation, the overall demand for technical textile products is set to rise consistently.

The Indian Air Force utilises technical textiles for several special applications such as the brake parachutes for fighter aircraft, Flying Clothing, barrier nets at airports, and cargo drop parachutes. These are in addition to other applications for clothing, personnel protection, troop comfort (such as tents), camouflage etc.

In this regard, SIDM in partnership with the Indian Air Force is organizing a Webinar titled “Technical Textiles in Defence” on 28th February, 1500-1700 Hrs. The theme for the webinar is “Creating Excellence in Textiles for Defence”.
