Hopeful of streamlined procurement process
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.
