SHAASTRA - DEFENCE INNOVATION CHALLENGE

Shaastra is the annual technical festival of IIT Madras.
Calling out to all innovative thinkers and problem solvers! Here is an opportunity to contribute to India’s defence technology.
A competition that urges participants to come up with tech-based solutions for problems in the field of defence.

This will be similar to the Rural Energy Challenge and Sports Analytics Hackathon conducted as part of previous Summits. Teams of 1-3 participants will work on problem statements in defence, along three tracks. The shortlisted teams will present their solutions at the Defence Tech Summit 2020.

Format
The problem statements for DIC will be along three tracks, namely Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR).
The challenge will be held in two rounds, an online prelims round and an onsite finals during Shaastra.
In the prelims, teams are expected to choose a track and send in a Proof Of Concept (POC) for their model.
The competition will culminate at Shaastra, with the finalists presenting their solutions at the Defence Tech Summit 2020.
