REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI) for Co-Development & Co-Production of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) 1.0 BACKGROUND 1.

1 Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (www.hal-india.com) is a premier Aeronautical organization in India with capability to design, develop, manufacture and service complete military/ civil aircraft and helicopters. HAL’s activities have been extended to cover India’s space programs as well. 1.2 Ever since its inception, HAL has produced over 3700 aircraft and helicopters ranging from piston engine trainer , modern fighter aircraft, Light and medium Helicopters. Currently HAL is engaged in the manufacture of its indigenously developed Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH), Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) and development of Intermediate Jet Trainer (IJT). HAL has undertaken manufacture of Pilotless Target Aircraft (Lakshya) of Aeronautical Development Establishment’s (ADE) design and has established D-level maintenance facilities for MALE & Tactical categories of UAV’s. 1.3 HAL has established itself as a reputed supplier to major aircraft companies like Airbus, Boeing and is fully equipped with modern manufacturing facilities and equipment required for producing advanced fighter aircraft and medium capacity civil aircraft along with their power plants, accessories and avionics. 1.4 Over the last seven decades, HAL has established cross-functional processes and structures to manage a full portfolio of projects within the Company. With this strength, HAL is now embarking on the challenging task of building cross-enterprise processes and adopting codevelopment and co-production as integral element of its business model to unleash productivity gains and provide innovative & complete solutions to our customers. 1.5 HAL is also expanding its reach to cover new product lines. One of the Business lines will be UAS’s (Unmanned Aerial Systems) and its variants for Co-development and Co-production to meet the requirement of various Defense Services and Civil customers in the national and international market. As the UAS business in India & other countries is expanding, there is a need for collaboration to face the competitive scenario. 2.0 SCOPE OF THE PROPOSAL
