Bangalore, March 28: Boeing and Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) are expanding their partnership through a follow-on contract involving the manufacture of subassemblies for the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fighter jet.

This contract, for Super Hornet subassemblies, expands work Boeing awarded BEL in 2011. BEL delivers components for the Super Hornet and P-8I maritime reconnaissance aircraft; and is a partner with Boeing at the Analysis & Experimentation Centre in Bengaluru that opened in 2009.

Boeing's relationship with BEL demonstrates our commitment to working with Indian industry, said Dennis Swanson, vice president of International Business Development for Boeing Defense, Space & Security in India.

Through the new contract BEL will produce Super Hornet subassemblies including the Ground Power Panel, Helmet Vehicle Interface Stowage and Switch assembly and Cockpit Console Panels. For the F/A-18, BEL also produces a stowage panel for the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System connector cable and an avionics cooling system fan test switch panel with a Night Vision Imaging System-compatible floodlight assembly. For the P-8I it provides the Identification Friend or Foe interrogators and Data Link II communications systems.

 BEL believes this cooperation with Boeing is a great opportunity and is ever willing to take it to greater heights, said H.N. Ramakrishna, BEL director of Marketing.
