Defence & Aerospace Consultancy

Through this service, SIDM leverages over two decades of experience of CII in the Defence & Aerospace sector. Having pioneered many successful policy initiatives, business events, and training programmes, SIDM is now carrying forward the process of bridging the information gap between government and Industry with regards to the Indian Industry capabilities.
