    Tarmak007 -- A bold blog on Indian defence: INDIA SHINING: BATL bags Rs 120 cr additional BrahMos order | 6 more L-40 tanks for ISRO | Astra missile motor case for DRDO | Critical RF quadruple for BARC
    .
    .

    Bangalore: BrahMos Aerospace Thiruvananthapuram Ltd (BATL) has bagged an additional order worth Rs 120 crore from BrahMos Aerospace Pvt Ltd. Sources tell Express that BATL will now manufacture critical components of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile at its Chakkai installation in Thiruvananthapuram. “The fresh orders are for F-3 section, metallic airframe components and CPHS (Combined Pneumo Hydraulic System).
    This is in addition to whatever BATL was executing for the BrahMos project,” sources said. BATL is also making launcher containers for BrahMos missile, which had ran into some technical specification snags, but now said to be fixed. The airborne launcher (which holds the missile on Sukhoi-30MKI) prototype has been cleared now. BATL has started work on the actual airborne launcher for Sukhoi. A limited series production order of five sets is in place and the mass production of the launchers is now at a striking distance.
    Amidst the man-made mess and internal squabbles, BATL is slowly and steadily marshalling its forces to be on the mission mode.
    “There’s no dearth for order, but dedication is the key,” sources said. For the Indian Space Research Organisation (SIRO), BATL is already supplying its star product Vikas engine, apart from titanium gas bottle.
    BATL is also producing Secondary Injection Thrust Vector Control (SITVC) tanks for ISRO.
    “They have been given a new order of six more L-40 tanks for GSLV. Baba Atomic Research Centre (BARC) wants the most-critical and complex radio-frequency quadruple from BATL.
    This is the first time an attempt is being in India to make the sensitive component for BARC,”
    sources said.
    The Defence Research and Development
    Organisation (DRDO) has placed orders for air-
    booster casing, B1 & B2 motor cases for missiles,
    gas generators and gyro valves. “The Astra air-
    to-air beyond visual range missile cases will also now be developed at BATL,” source said.

    BATL bags Rs 120-crore BrahMos missile order

    BANGALORE: The BrahMos Aerospace Thiruvananthapuram Ltd (BATL) has bagged an additional order worth Rs 120 crore from the BrahMos Aerospace Pvt Ltd. Sources told the Express that the BATL would now manufacture critical components of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, at its Chakkai facility in Thiruvananthapuram.

    “The fresh orders are for F-3 section, metallic airframe components and CPHS (Combined Pneumo Hydraulic System). This is in addition to whatever BATL was executing for the BrahMos project,” sources said.

    BATL is also making launcher containers for the BrahMos missile, which had encountered some technical specification snags. But it is understood that this has now been fixed. The airborne launcher (which holds the missile on Sukhoi-30MKI) prototype has been cleared now. And BATL has started work on the actual airborne launcher for Sukhoi. A limited series production order of five sets is in place and the mass production of the launchers is now in the pipeline.

    The BATL is slowly and steadily marshalling its forces to be on the mission mode, after overcoming organisational hiccups and internal squabbles. “There’s no dearth for orders, but dedication is the key,” sources said. For the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the BATL is already supplying its star product, the Vikas engine, apart from the Titanium gas bottle.

    BATL is also producing Secondary Injection Thrust Vector Control (SITVC) tanks for the ISRO.

    “They have been given a new order of six more L-40 tanks for GSLV. Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) wants the most-critical and complex radio-frequency quadruple from BATL. This is the first time an attempt is being in India to make the sensitive component for BARC,” sources said.

    The DRDO has placed orders for air-booster casing, B1 & B2 motor cases for missiles, gas generators and gyro valves. “The Astra air-to-air beyond visual range missile cases will also now be developed at BATL,” sources said.

    this is really stupid......BATL is a fully owned subsidiary of Brahmos Aerospace......that means Russians have 49.5% stake in this company too....why give our orders to a JV when we can give them to fully government owned companies like BEL??????

    Sometime ago someone was complaining that russians are reluctant to do full TOT in brahmos, now we are giving them a chance to hold us off even more.....
