Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL) and Bell Helicopter have signed an agreement to develop both commercial and government (including military) rotary wing markets in India in the Light Utility and Reconnaissance segments.

The scope of this agreement is intended to include potential production and assembly capabilities, certain training and maintenance, repair and overhaul requirements, as well as research and development programs and technology sharing that will grow industrial capabilities and result in innovative solutions, TASL said in a statement Thursday.

“TASL’s alliance with Bell Helicopter is significant because of our shared synergies; our defense manufacturing capabilities and focus on innovation are well aligned with Bell Helicopter’s core competence. This will build on the partnerships that TASL already has in the rotorcraft market allowing it to offer a full range of products to potential customers. The collaboration, which is in line with the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, holds potential not only in the domestic market but, will also strengthen India’s position in the international market,” said S. Ramadorai, Chairman of TASL.
