Working under Mr Rajeev Srivastava, General Manager (Aerospace), the new unit, set up mid-2008, has been able to create business relationship with India’s premier aerospace entity, the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), and the two are already working together on exciting engineering solutions.

Several other additional business opportunities are also being pursued with various divisions of HAL spread across India.

Buoyed by its recent achievements, and consolidating its national presence, the Aerospace Team at BEML has already approached major technological institutions like Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), and other major defence public sector undertakings like BEL.

Several strong leads are being pursued with these institutions/organisation.

Interactions with Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) are also planned in the near future. To spread its wings beyond the national boundaries, BEML. Aerospace has initiated discussions with international aerospace majors like Boeing, EADS/ Airbus, Lockheed Mar t in, Ray theon, Nor throp Grumman, Textron and Rolls-Royce.

Implementing the strategy of beginning with offering of its already existing strong capabilities in engineering solutions (CAD/ CAM, CAE etc.), the Aerospace Team at BEML has started development and manufacturing of support equipment.

Plans are afoot to make a fullfledged aerospace manufacturing facility operational soon, and to effectively meet the offset obligations/ requirement of the Aerospace industry, which is growing at a phenomenal rate.
