  • Outsourcing of operation & maintenance of simulators to Indian companies
  • Applicable to all types of in use/to be procured simulators

Ministry of Defence (MoD) has promulgated the framework for enhanced and synergised utilisation of simulators by the three Services and the Indian Coast Guard (ICG). The overarching vision is to transform to simulation-based training across all military domains for combatants, leaders, maintainers, administrators, life science experts, procurement and financial agencies and thus achieve cost effective, efficient, safe, fast-paced and smart training.


The framework lays emphasis on indigenous design & development as well as outsourcing of operation and maintenance of simulators to the Indian companies. The framework has the following goals and objectives:


• To reduce live equipment utilisation.


• To ensure capability plans cater for phased induction of simulators.


• To duly factor requirement of simulators at the planning stage of procurement.


• To coordinate among various agencies of the Government and factor combined requirements of simulators during procurement.





The policy will be applicable to all types of simulators in use/to be procured in the future by the Armed Forces. Avenues of application of simulation technology will be constantly explored to achieve a high level of op preparedness while reducing expenditure on training and preserving the life of equipment.


A detailed action plan with assigned responsibility to all the constituents of MoD and industrial association will be followed to revitalise the exploitation of simulators by the three Services and the ICG. The Indian agencies involved in development, production and maintenance would be engaged by the Services to ensure highest level of indigenisation for production, deployment and maintenance of the military simulators.

MoD signs contract with Airbus Defence & Space, Spain for acquisition of 56 C-295MW transport aircraft for IAF


Posted On: 24 SEP 2021 12:54PM by PIB Delhi



Key Highlights:


  • Big step towards modernisation of IAF transport fleet
  • 5-10 tonne capacity aircraft equipped with contemporary technology
  • Airbus to also directly purchase eligible products & services from Indian Offset Partners
  • Unique opportunity for domestic private sector to enter into technology intensive aviation industry

Ministry of Defence (MoD) signed a contract with M/s Airbus Defence and Space, Spain for acquisition of 56 C-295MW transport aircraft for the Indian Air Force, on September 24, 2021. The MoD has also signed an Offset Contract with M/s Airbus Defence and Space through which M/s Airbus will discharge its offset obligations through direct purchase of eligible products and services from Indian Offset Partners. These contracts were signed following the approval accorded by the Cabinet Committee on Security earlier this month.


The induction of C-295MW will be a significant step towards modernisation of the transport fleet of the Indian Air Force (IAF). It is a transport aircraft of 5-10 tonne capacity with contemporary technology that will replace the ageing Avro transport aircraft of IAF. The aircraft is capable of operating from semi-prepared strips and has a rear ramp door for quick reaction and para dropping of troops & cargo. The aircraft will give a major boost to tactical airlift capability of IAF, especially in the Northern and North-Eastern sector and Andaman & Nicobar Islands.


The project will provide a major boost to the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan’ of the Government that offers a unique opportunity for the Indian private sector to enter into technology intensive and highly competitive aviation industry. Out of 56, forty aircraft will be manufactured in India by TATA Consortium. All the deliveries will be completed within ten years of signing of the contract. All 56 aircraft will be installed with indigenous Electronic Warfare Suite. After completion of the delivery, the subsequent aircraft manufactured in India can be exported to countries which are cleared by the Government of India. The project will give a boost to aerospace ecosystem in India wherein several MSMEs spread over the country will be involved in manufacturing of parts of the aircraft. The program will also involve development of specialised infrastructure in the form of hangars, buildings, aprons and taxiway.


This programme is a unique initiative of the Government to strengthen the indigenous capabilities and boost ‘Make in India’.
