Feb 06,2020
LIG Nex1 announced Wednesday the company will showcase its advanced defense solutions at this year’s DefExpo India to accelerate its move into the Indian market.

The biennial defense exhibition attracted more than 700 exhibitors around the world and was the stage for more than 50 bilateral government meetings and 40 initial agreements during the last iteration in 2018.

The exhibition runs for five days from Wednesday in Lucknow, India. LIG Nex1 is showcasing a land-based, short-range surface-to-air missile (Chiron) mounted on the self-propelled air defense system (Hybrid BIHO) and ship-borne vertical-launch short-range surface-to-air missile.

The Korean aerospace manufacturer and defense company under LIG Group is displaying its 70-millimeter (2.8-inch) guided rocket, medium-range anti-ship missile (C-Star) and third-generation anti-tank guided missile (Raybolt).

LIG Nex1 also plans to introduce multi-band, multi-role, software-defined radio, which provides better voice and data communication among users.
