Israel's MS Tech, a developer, manufacturer, and innovator of nanotechnology, IoT and big-data sensors, announced Wednesday that it will establish a wholly-owned Indian subsidiary, MS Tech Innovation Pvt Ltd, to focus on the local market and provide manufacturing capabilities in line with the country's "Make in India" and "Self-Reliant India" strategies.
The company said it will strengthen its manufacturing, assembly, sales, marketing and technical support activities across India in support of the growing demand for advanced explosives and narcotics detection systems. Its flagship products, EXPLOSCAN and DUOSCAN, are explosive and narcotics trace and vapour detectors that use innovative HF Quartz Crystal Microbalance (HF-QCM) nanotechnology sensors developed, manufactured and patented by the company. Both systems feature innovative design, with self-calibrating and self-cleaning capabilities and the highest levels of operational availability. 
The HF-QCM nanotechnology sensors are non-radioactive, providing a completely "green" and safe working environment. Both solutions are ideal for aviation and transport security, protection of vulnerable facilities and infrastructure, military, customs and border control, mail inspection and cargo screening applications. The systems are operationally-proven in a wide range of temperatures and withstand even the harshest environmental conditions, including dust and humidity, according to MS Tech. 
Doron Shalom, MS Tech's CEO, said “The ongoing process of establishment of the subsidiary in India is a result of our understanding of the need for local representation and is another step in strengthening our support and commitment to our customers in the Indian market We are looking forward to our continued cooperation with India while supporting the vision of raising its manufacturing capacity, creativity, skills and employment." 
"MS Tech’s explosive and narcotics detection solutions are already successfully deployed in dozens of international and domestics airports across India. The Make-In-India activities will enable us to expand our capabilities for further projects in the aviation, defense and security sectors and keep our efficient and fast service and support to our Indian customers,” the CEO added.
