France-based ACOEM Group bets on defence, noise monitoring in India

France-based ACOEM Group which has recently set up its India subsidiary in Vadodara is eyeing collaborations in defence sector for its patented gun shot detection systems, apart from bringing its noise monitoring technology to industries in the country.

Through its India subsidiary, the company is looking to bring in its patented gun detection technology to the defence sector. According to Samir Sabnis, managing director of ACOEM India, the company would not only be looking at tapping the government and security forces but also exploring technological collaborations with defence manufacturers in India.

“We will be working on two fold fronts in defence. On one hand, we will be working with the government and security forces for the periphery monitoring. On the other hand, under the Make in India contour, we will also be working with local manufacturers to strengthen their offerings by integrating our technical know-how with other defence manufacturers,” Sabnis told Business Standard.

Refusing to divulge the size of investment that would go into the company’s defence offerings, Sabnis said, “We will be on the product development front in defence and as and when investment is required, we will be making the same.”

Commenting further on ACOEM India’s patented gun detection technology, Sabnis said, “The patented technology can pin point from where the gun shot is coming and of what calibre of ammunition which can be used in order to deploy troops in the area of attack.”
