Hal-brahmos partner for more indigenisation
The Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and BrahMos— the supersonic cruise missile manufacturer in the country— have forged the partnership for long-term support towards all variants of BrahMos programmes at a meeting held in Hyderabad recently.
HAL will install and augment required facilities under the technical support of Research Centre Imarat (RCI, a DRDO agency dedicated for development of inertial systems) to meet the current and the future programme expectations, said Dr R.K. Tyagi, Chairman, HAL.
Dr A. Sivathanu Pillai, CEO and MD, BrahMos, and other top officials from both the sides were present. The two sides also agreed to partner and enhance indigenous content of the BrahMos programme. HAL will develop certain critical electronic systems towards achieving this goal.
