Defence Framework Agreement signed between US & India

Agreement :

During Obama’s visit, both countries had identified four “pathfinder projects” as well as decided to explore development of aircraft carrier technologies and jet engines. With the step towards the same, India and US have signed a new strategically important 10-year defence framework agreement setting the stage for co-development and manufacture of defence equipment and technology besides holding joint exercises and greater intelligence sharing.


  • One of the projects is the development of a high-tech mobile power source for the Marine Corps that would work on solar energy, be smaller, more portable and efficient, and which could be used in remote outposts.
  • The other is a protective suit for the Indian Army that would be more lightweight and effective when used in chemical and biological hazard incidents.
