Zen Technologies, a leading provider of anti-drone technology and defence training solutions in India, witnessed a 4.40% surge in its shares, reaching ₹754 per share in early Monday’s trading session. This positive market movement followed the company’s recent achievement of securing an export order valued at around ₹42 crore.
The order, which includes cutting-edge simulators, originates from a friendly nation and underscores the Indian government’s commitment to enhancing defence exports in line with the national goal of becoming a net defence exporter. The announcement was made through an official exchange filing on November 18.
Zen Technologies has been consistently winning substantial orders from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in India, with key contributing factors being the Make in India initiative, ‘Atmanirbharata’ (self-reliance), Buy Indian IDDM (Indigenously Designed, Developed, and Manufactured), Simulation Framework, and the government’s dedication to sustainability.
In a noteworthy development on October 26, the company secured an order worth approximately ₹100 crore from the Ministry of Defence, India, for its state-of-the-art Force-On-Force tank training system. In September, Zen Technologies also clinched a significant contract from the Ministry of Defence for the supply of Anti-Drone systems, with a total order value of ₹227.85 crore, as per the regulatory filing made by the company.
