Hope­ful of stream­lined pro­cure­ment process

SP's MAI - - NATIONAL AGENDA - By Ram Prasad, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Rock­well Collins In­dia

Rock­well Collins is proud to be present in In­dia for many years and ex­cited about the coun­try’s growth po­ten­tial un­der the new In­dian Govern­ment. In­dia is a key mar­ket for Rock­well Collins with in­creas­ing air traf­fic and on­go­ing re­gional se­cu­rity threats driv­ing spend­ing on pro­grammes in both commercial and govern­ment sec­tors. We are com­mit­ted to In­dia as demon­strated by our con­tin­ued ex­pan­sion in coun­try, adding jobs, trans­fer­ring tech­nol­ogy and con­tribut­ing to the lo­cal econ­omy.

Rock­well Collins’ strength in net­work-en­abled com­mu­nica- tions, ad­vanced, in­te­grated avion­ics, pre­ci­sion nav­i­ga­tion, in­for­ma­tion man­age­ment, and ser­vice and sup­port aligns well with In­dia’s needs. We deliver these ca­pa­bil­i­ties through lo­cal strate­gic part­ners and work with these com­pa­nies to cus­tomise and add value to our prod­ucts and so­lu­tions in line with the govern­ment’s “Make In­dia” pro­cure­ment guide­lines.

Now with a new govern­ment in place we are hope­ful that the pro­cure­ment process will be­come more stream­lined and is­sues that we some­times face re­lated to tech­nol­ogy trans­fer and in­tel­lec­tual property will be more con­ducive to col­lab­o­ra­tive progress.

We be­lieve that in­dus­try and govern­ment should all work to­wards a strong In­dia. We are com­pletely fo­cused on build­ing strong al­liances in In­dia and are pleased to be part­nered with sev­eral lo­cal com­pa­nies such as HCL for de­sign work, Tata Strate­gic Elec­tron­ics Di­vi­sion (SED) for soft­ware de­fined ra­dio, Air Works for ser­vices and Park Con­trols for our 721S fixed site ra­dio.

As a wholly-owned sub­sidiary of Rock­well Collins, Rock­well Collins In­dia em­ploys In­di­ans who are proud to be a part of build­ing the coun­try’s aero­space and de­fence in­dus­try. Rock­well Collins’ de­sign cen­tre in Hy­der­abad aug­ments the com­pany’s ex­ist­ing en­gi­neer­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The In­dia De­sign Cen­tre (IDC) was cre­ated to help Rock­well Collins ex­pand its global foot­print, meet the needs of cus­tomers in this re­gion, and in­crease ac­cess to high-qual­ity en­gi­neer­ing and de­sign talent. The IDC cur­rently has 600 em­ploy­ees with plans to con­tinue to grow the fa­cil­ity at a steady rate.

Our fa­cil­ity in Gur­gaon, Haryana, houses the busi­ness de­vel­op­ment, pro­gramme man­age­ment, sys­tems en­gi­neer­ing and re­lated sup­port ac­tiv­i­ties en­abling us to best serve our cus­tomers lo­cally. Ex­pand­ing this triad of ca­pa­bil­i­ties is what has proven to work for Rock­well Collins across the globe.

Our com­pany is en­trenched in In­dia’s aero­space and de­fence in­dus­try. We pro­vide a wide ar­ray of avion­ics, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, elec­tron­ics and ser­vices to commercial and busi­ness air­craft OEMs and air­lines. For de­fence ap­pli­ca­tions we have com­mu­ni­ca­tions, GPS and EW equip­ment on mul­ti­ple mil­i­tary air­craft, in­clud­ing the In­dian Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force. With our in­creas­ing pres­ence in coun­try, our val­ued strate­gic part­ner­ships and on­go­ing in­vest­ment in R&D, we are po­si­tion­ing Rock­well Collins for a bright fu­ture in In­dia.
