Saab and Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. (TCS) have signed a Letter of Intent to create an aviation technology design and development centre in India.

Through this collaboration Saab and TCS intend to establish a common development centre that both parties can benefit from and is considered to be the start of a long relationship that will increase both companies’ opportunities to do business within the aviation and defence sectors.
Within Saab, Combitech will be responsible for establishing the ADDC, which will create design and development opportunities in India for both civil and military applications. Saab will transfer technology and expertise within aviation technology. The markets for aero structures, aero systems, avionics and aftermarket support are of special interest to the work in the centre.
