Tata Technologies today said it has won a multi-year engineering services contract from Italian aircraft maker Piaggio Aero Industries.
Tata Technologies will deliver a complete structural design and analysis solution for the aviation major’s new Multirole Patrol Aircraft (MPA) and its first test flight will be conducted next year, company’s President Global Services and COO Asia-Pacific, Samir Yajnik said here.
Tata HAL Technologies Ltd, a joint venture between Tata Technologies and HAL, will deliver on the prestigious engagement, Yajnik said on the sidelines of Aero India 2013.
“This is one of the first of its kind engineering services engagement in the private aerospace sector in India,” he said.
Tata HAL Technologies will deliver a complete optimised structural design, engineering, manufacturing, and certification documents for the aircraft fuselage inclusive of the vertical fin in two separate phases, Yajnik said.
Piaggio Aero’s Multirole Patrol Aircraft (MPA) is the evolution of the company’s P180 Avanti II multi-utility aircraft, newly designed to make it uniquely capable of surveillance, law enforcement and security missions, he said.
The MPA’s main features include an enhanced airframe, increased maximum take-off weight, additional fuel tanks and a new aerodynamic configuration and a reinforced wing providing an increased surface and higher aspect ratio, Yajnik said.
Piaggio Aero Industries General Manager, Eligio Trombetta said with the MPA, his company was looking at meeting the market need for a robust technological solution for land, coastal, maritime and offshore security.
“We are confident that Tata Technologies’ highly skilled and talented resource pool will help us rapidly scale towards meeting our ambitious program targets,” he said.
Engineering the new MPA aircraft requires the ability to meet stringent weight targets in an aggressive timeline for design modifications, he said.
