Aircraft pylons are advanced technology items for aircraft to carry weapons, including bombs and missiles. The companies have also agreed to establish a joint research & development facility in India to cater to customized Indian requirements.

“We are pleased that Rafaut has agreed to support establishing a manufacturing line for advanced aircraft pylons in our manufacturing facilities. When combined with our agreement to jointly establish a Research and Development lab to cater to the special requirements of the Indian military, is in support of the Government of India’s Make In India program”, said Sanjay Bhandari, Chairman and Managing Director of OIS Advanced Technology.

Aircraft pylons are essential part of weapon delivery systems of aircrafts. Customized for each aircraft, they enable the aircraft to carry missiles and bombs. The technology for release of these weapons are done in a pneumatic and pyrotechnic manner, thus permitting each aircraft to safely and accurately release weapons as part of their mission.
