Bangalore: Cassidian, the defence and security division of EADS, has opened a new Engineering Centre in Bangalore, India to develop products fulfilling the specific requirements of the Indian customers and to provide consultancy and other services to the aerospace and defence companies in India.

A major objective of the Engineering Centre is to leverage the vast pool of skilled engineers available in India. The centre is staffed, almost entirely, by highly qualified Indian engineers who have undergone extensive training in Europe. The company plans to increase the current number of 60 employees to more than 200 by the end of 2012. This is the first defence oriented engineering centre operated by a foreign company in India. The Engineering Centre will carry out Engineering and System Development, developing its core competencies in the areas of Radar Systems, Protection Systems, Avionic Systems, Engineering IT & 3D Visual Simulation, Aerostructure and Aerospace Modelling & Simulation.

"The Engineering Centre in Bengaluru is a perfect example of our commitment to increase our industrial footprint in this rapidly growing country and to create a wide range of opportunities for industrial cooperation," said Dr. Stefan Zoller, CEO of Cassidian.

With the integration of the new centre within Cassidian's global Engineering Organization, it will be enabled to participate in Indian as well as global programmes.

The center was inaugurated by Dr. Stefan Zoller, CEO of CASSIDIAN in the presence of Shri M.M. Pallam Raju, Minister of State for Defence. The centre is an outcome of Cassidian's strategic goal to establish a long-term partnership with India. Proximity to customers and users will facilitate a mutually beneficial relationship on both sides and thus strengthen Cassidian's future activities in India.
