New Delhi: Cyient, a global engineering and technology solutions company, today announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with United Kingdom-based defence technology firm, QinetiQ’s Target Systems (QTS) to offer avionics products for its unmanned target systems.

Cyient will provide advanced manufacturing and electronics engineering solutions for QTS’ range of unmanned air, land, and sea target systems from its facilities in India.

“The signing of this MoU with Cyient marks a significant milestone in QTS’ strategy in India. Initial efforts are focused on the manufacture and assembly of avionics and electronics assemblies for our target systems as we grow indigenous activities beyond the manufacture and assembly of airframes, subsystems, and ground equipment already in place,” QinetiQ Target Systems’ India programme manager Graham Brooks said in a statement.

“This partnership will allow us to support the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Government of India by building critical sub-systems for QTS products out of our manufacturing facilities. While we will initiate the collaboration with making avionics products, Cyient’s comprehensive design, build, and maintain portfolio will be leveraged for other purposes as well,” Cyient’s Aerospace and Defence Senior Vice President Anand Parameswaran said.
