    State-of-the-art facility encompasses specialized machinery

    Newly inaugurated facility spans over 10,000 square meters

    New facility is poised to further enhance HAL's capabilities

On December 29, a cutting-edge design and testing facility was inaugurated at the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) Aero Engine Research and Development Centre (AERDC) in Bengaluru.

This state-of-the-art facility encompasses specialized machinery, advanced setups utilizing computational tools, an in-house fabrication facility, and two test beds dedicated to the testing of HTFE-25.

Additionally, there is one test bed each for HTSE-1200 and an upcoming joint venture (JV) engine for the Indian Multi-Role Helicopter (IMRH), co-developed by Safran of France and HAL.

Defence Secretary Giridhar Aramane, who inaugurated the facility, commended HAL for its accomplishments, expressing trust in its capabilities to contribute to the nation’s self-reliance.

He emphasized the pivotal role of the manufacturing sector in the country’s future and urged HAL to focus on mastering technologies for various aircraft types, considering the evolving landscape of warfare.

Secretary Aramane underscored the significance of unmanned aircraft in future warfare and encouraged HAL to collaborate with private companies to innovate and develop new platforms. The newly inaugurated facility, spanning over 10,000 square meters, is a key component of HAL’s modernization plan.

Established in the 1960s, the AERDC holds a unique distinction as the sole design house that has developed test beds for engines of both Western and Russian origin.

This new facility is poised to further enhance HAL’s capabilities in designing and testing a wide range of aero engines to meet the evolving needs of the aerospace industry.
