Bangalore: Indo-Russian joint venture company, BrahMos Aerospace inaugurated a Centre of Excellence in High Speed Aerodynamics at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc). BrahMos had signed an MoU with IISc in June this year to establish the centre.

"The centre will bring together the strength of BrahMos and IISc with the mission to promote development of world-class systems and technology, which is a significant step towards development of the nation," said A.P.J Abdul Kalam, Former President of India, during the inauguration of the Centre.

Kalam said that the centre must aim to make Mach 8 or 10 re-usable missile by 2020. Stating that even a Mach-II fighter costs Rs 200 crore, he said that we should not continue spending money on making missiles again and again.

"The new Centre of Excellence at IISc will pave the way for young and bright scientists from all over India to undertake research and development in the field of high speed aerodynamics," said A Sivathanu Pillai, BrahMos Aerospace Chief Executive Officer.

The centre will be used for developing the advanced BrahMos-II missile system and reusable hypersonic vehicles for space missions.
