Airbus S.A.S. and Tata Advanced Systems have announced a strategic partnership to enhance India’s defense supply chain and develop new products to meet the country’s defense requirements. This collaboration will focus on developing capabilities for acquiring raw materials, manufacturing detailed parts, establishing sub-assembly and assembly facilities, and prioritizing the production of electric harnesses.
“We are excited to partner with Tata Advanced Systems to strengthen India’s defense supply chain,” said Jorge Tamarit-Degenhardt, Head of the C295 Transport Aircraft Programme for Airbus. “This partnership will help us to develop the capabilities we need to meet the growing demand for military transport aircraft in India.”
Under the partnership, Airbus and Tata Advanced Systems will invest in developing capabilities for acquiring raw materials, manufacturing detailed parts, or subcomponents, and establishing sub-assembly and assembly facilities. The initial focus will be on sourcing components such as metallic and composite manufacturing technologies.
“We are committed to supporting India’s ‘Make in India’ initiative,” said Tamarit-Degenhardt. “This partnership will help us to create a robust defense supply chain in India that can support the production of a wide range of military aircraft.”
The partnership is also expected to lead to the development of new products to meet the specific needs of the Indian defense forces.
“We are working closely with the Indian defense forces to understand their requirements and develop products that meet their needs,” said Tamarit-Degenhardt. “We are confident that this partnership will lead to the development of innovative and world-class defense products for India.”
The partnership between Airbus and Tata Advanced Systems is a significant step forward in strengthening India’s defense capabilities. This collaboration will help to create a more self-reliant defense industry in India and support the country’s growing defense requirements.
