Honey­well and Tata Power SED part­ner­ship


Honey­well Aero­space has signed a li­cens­ing agree­ment with Tata Power’s Strate­gic En­gi­neer­ing Di­vi­sion (SED), en­abling it to pro­duce Honey­well’s Tac­ti­cal Ad­vanced Land In­er­tial Nav­i­ga­tor, or TALIN, in In­dia. This Honey­well-patented tech­nol­ogy en­ables ve­hi­cles and ar­tillery to nav­i­gate very pre­cisely, even where GPS satel­lite guid­ance is not avail­able, to in­crease troop safety and max­imise mis­sion suc­cess.

“Our strate­gic agree­ment with Honey­well sup­ports Tata Power’s SED com­mit­ment to the ‘Make in In­dia’ ini­tia­tive – a pri­or­ity for In­dia’s new gov­ern­ment,” said Rahul Chaudhry, CEO, Tata Power SED. “We are proud to have com­pleted this tech­nol­ogy shar­ing ar­range­ment, which will of­fer the In­dian armed forces a state-ofthe-art in­er­tial nav­i­ga­tion tech­nol­ogy, made in In­dia and with lo­cal prod­uct support. This agree­ment sets the stan­dard for lo­cally pro­duced de­fence tech­nolo­gies to sus­tain In­dia’s mil­i­tary growth and mis­sion suc­cess over the com­ing years.”

Align­ing with the In­dian Gov­ern­ment’s ob­jec­tive of or­gan­i­cally grow­ing its de­fence in­dus­try and the call for ‘Make in In­dia’, Honey­well will li­cence the de­sign, hard­ware and ex­per­tise to as­sem­ble, test and, in the fu­ture, build the pro­duc­tion kits for TALIN to Tata Power SED. It will mark the first time In­dia has pro­duced in­er­tial land nav­i­ga­tion tech­nol­ogy, pro­vid­ing the In­dian armed forces with a lo­cally con­structed ad­vanced land nav­i­ga­tion tech­nol­ogy that is not limited by a re­liance upon GPS – an im­por­tant ben­e­fit for ve­hi­cles and ar­tillery op­er­at­ing across the coun­try’s moun­tain, desert and for­est ter­rain where satel­lite sig­nals can be limited.

“TALIN rep­re­sents the lat­est in GPS-free nav­i­ga­tion and po­si­tion­ing tech­nol­ogy, de­signed to im­prove as­set safety and ul­ti­mately mis­sion suc­cess,” said Ari­jit Ghosh, Pres­i­dent, Honey­well Aero­space In­dia. “By part­ner­ing with Tata Power SED on the pro­duc­tion of TALIN we are align­ing with the gov­ern­ment’s aim of in­creas­ing lo­cally man­u­fac­tured tech­nolo­gies for In­dia’s de­fence in­dus­try and giv­ing the In­dian armed forces an easy-to-jus­tify op­tion for nav­i­ga­tion on the 21st cen­tury bat­tle­field.”
