Posted 17 September 2019 · Add Comment

QinetiQ Target Systems (QTS) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hyderabad headquartered engineering and technology solutions company Cyient, to offer avionics products for QTS' unmanned target systems.

Cyient will provide advanced manufacturing and electronics engineering solutions for QTS' range of unmanned air, land, and sea target systems from its facilities in India.

"The signing of this MoU with Cyient marks a significant milestone in QTS' strategy in India. The high levels of expertise and quality within the Cyient business together with the enthusiasm and desire to succeed have impressed us from day one. Initial efforts are focused on the manufacture and assembly of avionics and electronics assemblies for our target systems as we grow indigenous activities beyond the manufacture and assembly of airframes, subsystems, and ground equipment already in place," said Graham Brooks, Programme Manager, India, at QinetiQ Target Systems.

Anand Parameswaran, Senior Vice President, Aerospace and Defense at Cyient, said: "We are very excited about our collaboration with QTS, a world leader in unmanned air, land, and sea targets for live-fire training, test and evaluation exercises. This partnership will allow us to support the 'Make in India' initiative of the Government of India by building critical subsystems for QTS products out of our manufacturing facilities. 

"While we will initiate the collaboration with making avionics products, Cyient's comprehensive design, build and maintain portfolio will be leveraged for other purposes as well. We can deliver world-class aerospace engineering solutions and leverage our award-winning productivity and innovation framework to support QTS' products in India. We see a seamless alignment between our business strategies and this MoU is a significant milestone in our long-term partnership," said Anand Parameswaran, Senior Vice President, Aerospace and Defense at Cyient.
