The Industrial Security Agreement (ISA) summit between India and the United States was held between September 27to October 01, 2021, in New Delhi. The summit was organised to develop a protocol for the exchange of classified information between the defence industries of both nations. The Summit was led by Designated Security Authorities (DSAs) namely Shri Anurag Bajpai and Mr David Paul Bagnati from Indian and US sides respectively.

The ISA was signed in December 2019 to facilitate the exchange of classified information between the defence industries of both countries. It was held to create a roadmap for the implementation of the ISA. The DSAs also visited the Indian defence industry in preparation for the roadmap. During the summit, both sides agreed in principle to establish the Indo-US Industrial Security Joint Working Group. This group will meet periodically to align the policies and procedures expeditiously that will allow the defence industries to collaborate on cutting edge defence technologies.
