Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) Chairman & Managing Director, CB Ananthakrishnan, has announced ambitious plans to significantly increase the indigenous content of avionics systems in military platforms.
The company aims to achieve an impressive 75-80% level of indigenous avionics within the next five years, marking a significant leap from the current 40-45% used in platforms like the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas and Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) Dhruv.
“We are proud to have achieved self-reliance in most of the avionics systems, including mission computers, navigation systems, communication systems, and display systems,” Ananthakrishnan stated. He further highlighted that more than 50% of the avionics systems currently used in the LCA Tejas, Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) Dhruv, and Light Utility Helicopters are already indigenously developed.
This focus on indigenous capabilities has empowered HAL to offer its platforms, including the ALH and LCA Tejas, to international customers with customized solutions tailored to their specific needs and requirements.
