Rock­well Collins and Zen Tech­nolo­gies of­fer so­lu­tions in sim­u­la­tion and train­ing to In­dian cus­tomers

SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE REPORT -

Rock­well Collins and Zen Tech­nolo­gies have signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing (MoU) to com­bine their strengths in sim­u­la­tion and train­ing to of­fer in­dus­try-lead­ing, high fidelity so­lu­tions to In­dian mil­i­tary cus­tomers. Rock­well Collins, based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, with fa­cil­i­ties in Hy­der­abad and near New Delhi, pro­vides world-class avi­a­tion sim­u­la­tion and train­ing prod­ucts, sys­tems and in­te­gra­tion so­lu­tions. Zen Tech­nolo­gies, based in Hy­der­abad, spe­cialises in sup­ply­ing in­dus­trylead­ing ground mil­i­tary sim­u­la­tion and train­ing so­lu­tions.

“Our re­la­tion­ship with Zen Tech­nolo­gies will open up av­enues to fur­ther ex­tend our reach in the In­dian de­fence mar­ket, and al­lows Rock­well Collins to of­fer su­pe­rior end-to-end so­lu­tions that mil­i­taries utilise through­out the world,” said LeAnn Ridge­way, Vice Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager, Sim­u­la­tion & Train­ing So­lu­tions for Rock­well Collins. “Com­bin­ing the strengths of our two com­pa­nies will pro­vide In­dian mil­i­tary cus­tomers with air and ground so­lu­tions that will bet­ter pre­pare their sol­diers and air­men to suc­cess­fully com­plete mis­sions.”

Jim Walker, Vice Pres­i­dent and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Asia-Pa­cific for Rock­well Collins, said that In­dia is a very promis­ing mar­ket for the aero­space and de­fence sec­tor. “We want to work closely with the in­dus­try to en­sure they have easy ac­cess to in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions,” said Walker. “We are here for the long-term and through this part­ner­ship we want to de­velop lo­cally, and mar­ket di­rectly, ad­vanced so­lu­tions and ser­vices for In­dia. We will con­tinue to invest in In­dia through steady growth, strate­gic part­ner­ships and by strength­en­ing ex­ist­ing cus­tomer re­la­tions.”

The an­nounce­ment co­in­cides with the re­cent launch of the ‘Make in In­dia’ cam­paign, which is aimed at en­hanc­ing the coun­try’s promi- nence in global man­u­fac­tur­ing while cre­at­ing jobs by in­creas­ing the flow of new tech­nol­ogy and cap­i­tal. The MoU also marks the first time that a global sim­u­la­tor orig­i­nal equip­ment man­u­fac­turer has part­nered with an In­dian sim­u­la­tor man­u­fac­tur­ing company to cater to the In­dian de­fence mar­ket.

“We are de­lighted to en­ter into the flight sim­u­la­tion seg­ment by virtue of our al­liance with a renowned and lead­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion like Rock­well Collins. Zen Tech­nolo­gies has over the years emerged as a strong force in the field of land forces sim­u­la­tion in In­dia and we are very op­ti­mistic that through this al­liance we will be able to fill the gap in our ca­pa­bil­i­ties to serve the bur­geon­ing need of the flight sim­u­la­tion mar­ket in In­dia,” said Zen Tech­nolo­gies Pres­i­dent A. Kishore Dutt. “With Rock­well Collins’ global foot­print, Zen Tech­nolo­gies will be able to ac­cess new mar­kets. This is a per­fect fit.”
