The Defense Industries Organization (DIO) is a conglomerate of over 300 companies and a subsidiary of Iran’s Ministry of Defense Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL) whose function is to provide the Armed Forces with the necessary manufacturing capacity and technical abilities. It has played a central role in Iran’s ballistic missile development programme and in the implementation of Iran’s centrifuge programme. DIO oversees numerous state-owned defence contractors and front companies directly or through its primary subsidiary, the Aerospace Industries Organization. It plays a significant role in producing diverse military hardware for Iran, including missiles. In recent years, the DIO has attempted to become export-oriented, allowing Iran to become an exporter of weapons: in 2022, DIO has grown by 200 % compared to 2021, has developed 75 new weapons and has multiplied its exports by 2.5, thus contributing to the growth of Iran’s defence industry. DIO is thus providing support for Iran’s proliferation-sensitive nuclear activities and the development of nuclear weapon delivery systems.

Elle a joué un rôle central dans le programme iranien de développement de missiles balistiques et dans la mise en œuvre du programme iranien de centrifugeuses. La DIO supervise un grand nombre de sociétés-écrans et de contractants publics dans le domaine de la défense, directement ou par l’intermédiaire de sa filiale principale, l’Organisation des industries aérospatiales. Elle joue un rôle important dans la production de divers matériels militaires pour l’Iran, dont des missiles. Ces dernières années, la DIO a tenté de s’orienter vers l’exportation, ce qui a permis à l’Iran de devenir un exportateur d’armes: en 2022, la DIO a enregistré une croissance de 200 % par rapport à 2021, a mis au point 75 nouvelles armes et a multiplié ses exportations par 2,5, contribuant ainsi à la croissance de l’industrie iranienne de la défense. La DIO fournit donc un appui aux activités nucléaires de l’Iran posant un risque de prolifération et à la mise au point de vecteurs d’armes nucléaires.
