    HYDERABAD: Global aircraft maker Boeing and Tata Advanced Systems today signed a pact to collaborate in aerospace and defence manufacturing as well as to tap into integrated systems development opportunities, including unmanned aerial vehicles. The companies, under the memorandum of understanding, ntend to access markets jointly for products and platforms developed together by Boeing and TASL. The collaboration, which is in line with the government's 'Make in India' initiative, will not only work in the domestic market but will also be for international markets, sources said. The agreement was signed by Shelley Lavender, President of Boeing Military Aircraft and Sukaran Singh, managing director and chief executive officer of TASL. TASL is already on contract to manufacture aerostructures for Boeing's CH-47 Chinook and AH-6i helicopters. "This agreement with TASL is significant because it demonstrates Boeing’s commitment to expanding its aerospace manufacturing footprint in India," Lavender was quoted as saying in a Boeing statement. "As we step into our 100th year in business, a new aerospace partnership with India is the perfect milestone to accelerate the momentum we have generated for making in India," said Pratyush Kumar, president for Boeing India. "It is noteworthy that TASL will produce Chinook helicopter parts in India even before the procurement contract is signed with the Indian government," he said.

    HYDERABAD: Boeing and Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL) have joined hands to set up a facility here to co-produce Boeing AH-64 Apache helicopter fuselages and other aerostructures. Defence minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday laid the foundation stone of Tata Boeing Aerospace Limited (TBAL) at the aerospace Special Economic Zone (SEZ) at Adibatla on the city outskirts. The facility will also deal in integrated systems in aerospace. The Hyderabad production facility will eventually be the sole producer of AH-64 fuselage globally. The AH-64 Apache is the world's most advanced multi-role combat helicopter and used by the US forces as well as many other countries, including India. Parrikar termed the joint venture one of the initial big foreign direct investment in defence and aerospace under the government's 'Make in India' initiative. He said things would be speeded up during the current financial year and hoped that there will be more such projects by the end of 2016-17. Boeing and TASL last year signed a framework agreement to collaborate in aerospace and defense manufacturing and potential integrated systems development opportunities, including unmanned aerial vehicles. TASL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Sons, is already on contract to manufacture aerostructures for Boeing's CH-47 Chinook and AH-6i helicopters. TASL already has partnership with major players like Ruag, Cobham, Pilatus, Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky and Airbus. Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems.
