SOCIETY OF INDIAN AEROSPACE TECHNOLOGIES & INDUSTRIES (SIATI) is a unique association constituted to synergize Private and Public Industries with Aerospace Research & Design and also to build co-operation between Industries and R&D in India and abroad to enhance the growth of technology and business. 

The prime objectives of the society are

    * Encourage and promote aerospace technologies and Industries in India
    * Encourage potential entrepreneurs to set up medium/small scale industries, for manufacture /maintenance of aerospace components, systems and materials.
    * Provide forum for interaction of industries and users , research & development institutions, universities etc for the above
    * Encourage education and research in aerospace
    * To collaborate with similar societies, trusts, professional institutions and industries in the country and abroad for achieving its objectives

SIATI, founded in 1991, enjoys the patronage of major organisations like HAL, ISRO, DRDO, NAL, DGCA, CEMILAC and DGAQA. In addition to major aerospace players SIATI now has around 330 Small, Medium and Large Scale private industries engaged in Design, Analysis, Software systems, manufacture of Precision Machined Parts, Sheet Metal Components, Batteries, Connectors, PCBs and Embedded Systems, Electrical and Electronics equipments and materials and consumables.

SIATI has taken delegations to National and International airshows including Aero India, Canadian Airshow, Asian Aishow, Singapore, Paris Airshow, Farmorough Airshow UK and Berlin Airshow. SIATI established co-operation with Overseas Aerospace Organisations such as Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC) UK, Groupement des Industries Francaises Aeronautiques et Spatiales (GIFAS) France, European Association of Aerospace Industries (AECMA), German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI) and North West Alliance Aerospace (NWAA) UK, and representatives of Australian industries and research. SIATI is a co-signatory with EU India Civil Aviation Co-operation agreement and several aerospace personal from India benefited through EU India project.

The association has membership open to Industries and Institutions engaged in all fields related to aerospace such as research, design and development, manufacturing, maintenance, airline, airport and infrastructure, business management, education and training. The membership is open only for Industry/Institution members and not for individual/personal members..

All members have access to information and assistance with respect to:

    * Development and production of aerospace materials, equipment, structures, etc. for both Indian and Overseas customers.
    * Assistance in building international collaboration for technology tie-ups and Joint Venture.
    * Platform for interaction with Indian R&D, Academia and Industry for technology and business development.
    * Active participation under the EU India Co-operation projects, Industry collaborations and reciprocity of Airworthiness certification.
    * Export promotion through Offset/Counter Trade Agreements and forum for interaction with Government, HAL & STC in this matter.
    * Provide platform for developing a consortium to share expertise and costly processing facilities to facilitate enhanced sourcing from India.
    * Interaction with Government for policies conducive for development of aerospace technology R&D & business. etc

SIATI is a professionally managed non-profit, non-commercial organisation and is an important ‘Gateway’ to Indian Aerospace business and Global co-operation for tie-ups in R&D, Technology, Joint Ventures, Collaborations, Co-productions and information-exchange that has made pioneering efforts in bringing industry R&D collaborations within India and with overseas organisations. 

Membership for overseas organizations

Industries and institutions in the aerospace field from countries other than India could also join SIATI as international members and avail various benefits.

SIATI could be an important link for association with Indian Entrepreneurs/ Industry/ Institutions, various regulatory agencies and policy makers in India to establish collaborations, development of technology and business. There is considerable potential for collaboration in Research, Design, Technology Development, Joint Venture, co-production and partnership in offset / counter trade programs.
