India: Honeywell Aerospace has signed a licensing agreement with Tata Power's Strategic Engineering Division (SED), enabling it to produce Honeywell's Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator (TALIN) in India. The Honeywell-patented technology enables vehicles and artillery to navigate very precisely, even where GPS satellite guidance is not available, to increase troop safety and maximize mission success.
"Our strategic agreement with Honeywell supports Tata Power's SED commitment to the 'Make in India' initiative – a priority for India's new Government. We are proud to have completed this technology sharing arrangement, which will offer the Indian Armed Forces a state-of-the-art inertial navigation technology, made in India and with local product support. This agreement sets the standard for locally produced defense technologies to sustain India's military growth and mission success over the coming years,” said Rahul Chaudhry, CEO, Tata Power SED.
"TALIN represents the latest in GPS-free navigation and positioning technology, designed to improve asset safety and ultimately mission success. By partnering with Tata Power SED on the production of TALIN we are aligning with the Government's aim of increasing locally manufactured technologies for India's defense industry and giving the Indian Armed Forces an easy-to-justify option for navigation on the 21st Century battlefield,” said Arijit Ghosh, President India, Honeywell Aerospace.
