DRDO has successfully developed the technology
for indigenous production of naval steels using
the infrastructure existing in the country. During
the year, trial production of most of the products
of AB3 grade naval steel has been completed
barring thick plates of dimension 61 mm-100 mm.
About 60% of material required for complete
certification has been produced. Certification of
DMR 249BK steel bulb bars is in advanced stage.
