This con­tract, for Su­per Hor­net sub­assem­blies, ex­pands work Boe­ing awarded BEL in 2011. BEL de­liv­ers com­po­nents for the Su­per Hor­net and P-8I mar­itime re­con­nais­sance air­craft; and is a part­ner with Boe­ing at the Anal­y­sis & Ex­per­i­men­ta­tion Cen­tre in Bengaluru that opened in 2009.

“Boe­ing’s re­la­tion­ship with BEL demon­strates our com­mit­ment to work­ing with the In­dian in­dus­try to pro­vide cus­tomers with the best prod­ucts while fos­ter­ing global growth and mar­ket ac­cess,” said Dennis Swan­son, Vice Pres­i­dent of In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness Devel­op­ment for Boe­ing De­fense, Space & Se­cu­rity in In­dia.

Through the new con­tract BEL will pro­duce Su­per Hor­net sub­assem­blies in­clud­ing the ground power panel, hel­met ve­hi­cle in­ter­face stowage and switch as­sem­bly and cock­pit con­sole pan­els.

For the P-8I it pro­vides the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion friend or foe in­ter­roga­tors and data link II com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tems.
