We make soldiers more mobile and survivable with our lightweight and certified protection gear. With our rich experience of empowering over 3 million soldiers, we manufacture ballistic helmets, body armour, ballistic shields and blankets adaptable to future technology and threats.
We are turning night into day for our heroes with our range of optronics solutions so they can operate with efficiency and confidence in challenging situations, no matterhow dark their surroundings are.
We develop smart platform protection solutions for air, naval and land platforms using patented technologies and systems developed with years of research and development.
We offer end-to-end solutions from design, development, manufacturing and integration of light weight composite armour for platforms and vehicles. We are certified as per Aerospace Standard AS 9100:2009 and follow EN 9100 quality procedures.
Autro Fleet Management System deploys intelligent technologies and cloud computing to allow forces to track, respond, monitor and maintain their fleet operations efficiently through timely, accurate information and alerts.Autro Video Telematics Solution ensures driver and vehicle safety through Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS) and Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS). It provides alerts and reports for road facing and driver facing incidents.
Optronic solutions for platforms which enhance the operating efficiency of crews operating or manning the platforms. They integrate seamlessly with the platform they have been developed for Driver Night Sight for Tanks & Armoured Vehicles.

Auto Gating is a crucial technology in modern-day NVDs. It makes the device capable of giving clear visuals infrequent and sudden changes in light conditions. Placed within the image intensifier tube, it enables the amount of light reaching the intensifier to be automatically gated.
Auto Gating is a crucial technology in modern-day NVDs. It makes the device capable of giving clear visuals infrequent and sudden changes in light conditions. Placed within the image intensifier tube, it enables the amount of light reaching the intensifier to be automatically gated i.e., it frequently switches ON and OFF the tube, hence brighter lights do not cause any damage to the unit.
The Auto-Gating process applies an adaptive approach in order to reduce the impact of impulsive noise. Auto-Gating electronically reduces the duty cycle of the photocathode voltage by rapidly switching the voltage on and off, which maintains the most appropriate performance of the image intensifier tube.
It also improves the quality of the image, as well as enhances usability under dynamic lighting conditions found during military and law enforcement operations. The feature also protects its user from temporary blindness and helps maintain absolute situational awareness.

Image Intensifier tube with Auto-gating
‘Auto Gating’ upped the ante in the night vision Devices industry as it not only made the NVD’s image refined but also made it capable for hardy use. It did so by preserving high MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) and resolution that is obtained at the full operating voltage while reducing the strain of high illumination levels on the image intensifier tube and thus increasing the life of the tube as well.
These qualities have made Gen 2 & Gen 3 NVDs the preferred choice for defence forces all over the world and are specially used by Special Forces, Search and Rescue Operations Teams, Commandos, among others. To know more about the technology and science behind the NVD’s, do read our next article.
