Dassault Aviation Signs Memorandum of Understanding with INCAT and Tata Technologies

LONDON -- Dassault Aviation and INCAT's parent company, Tata Technologies, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for ESO services. Under the terms of the MoU, INCAT, a global leader in Engineering Services Outsourcing (ESO), will provide Dassault Aviation with Engineering Services in a number of critical domains, in support of the Indian Air Force MMRCA program, which involves significant offset requirements.

INCAT has been selected as a key offset partner for ESO delivery to help fulfill these offset requirements.

Utilizing INCAT's robust Global Delivery model, the services will be delivered largely from the recently established INCAT HAL Aerostructures Limited (IHAL) dedicated aerospace engineering services centre in Bangalore, India, and backed up by INCAT's delivery teams in France and the U.S.

The agreement is testament to INCAT's expertise in the aerospace market and its commitment to growing this capability in India as evidenced by the recent joint venture with HAL. Eric Trappier, Executive Vice-President International of Dassault Aviation says: "It is essential to find partners with the right expertise and experience in both aerospace engineering and working in India. INCAT and Tata Technologies have proven credentials in both these areas."

Lokesh Srivastava , CEO of IHAL, comments: "This MoU marks a significant milestone since the formation of IHAL and is a sure sign of the solid demand for our services."
