Our Strong Relationship With Dicon

The Defence Industries Corporation (DICON) was primarily established to produce small Arms and Ammunition for the use of the Nigerian Army and other Security agencies. The Corporation also uses its excess capacity to produce machinery spare parts for industries and other products for civilian use. Bearing this, the management of CSTD reached out to the DICON with hopes of establishing a working relationship of mutual benefits and in the April 2011 the DG DICON paid a visit to the Director/CEO CSTD Dr Spencer Onuh. A deal was also signed where the initial structural model for the spire micro-satellite were to be manufactured at DICON’s factory in Kaduna. It is expected that once the AIT/DC is completed, some of the more complex engineering designs of DICON could be manufactured and tested at CSTD.
