The process of procurement (under DPP) takes about 3 years, sometimes more. During the process, close interaction with the Defence is required to find out the exact requirements of the product. The product needs to comply with all the features stated in Request for Proposal (RFP). Non-compliance of even one, even if it is minor, could lead to the rejection of product.
Zen’s in-house Research and Development (R&D) division, which is certified by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India (GOI) takes care of the customization part of the product.
Zen’s other valuable assets are its software, electronics, optics and mechanical divisions, system engineering and project management which can fully utilized by off-shore OEMs during up-gradation, life extension, engineering, design, testing, defence-related software and quality assurance service of the products.
