Lockheed Martin recognizes TLMAL as a potential future co-producer of fighter wings

Lockheed Martin recognizes TLMAL as a potential future co-producer of fighter wings

Hyderabad, Dec 7 (UNI) Lockheed Martin on Tuesday formally recognized Tata-Lockheed Martin Aerostructures Limited (TLMAL) as a potential future co-producer of fighter wings.



A ceremonial event marking the first fighter wing prototype built at the TLMAL facility in Hyderabad was attended by Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development, Industries and Commerce, and Information Technology Minister along with other government dignitaries, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics and Global Business Development executives, and Tata Advanced Systems Limited and TLMAL leadership, a release here said.

`Lockheed Martin partnered with TLMAL to build one of the most technologically complex aerostructures — a fuel-carrying 9G, 12,000 hour, interchangeable/replaceable fighter wing,' said Aimee Burnett, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development, Lockheed Martin Integrated Fighter Group.



"This effort represents Lockheed Martin demonstrating to India, and to the world, the degree of confidence that exists in our relationships with our partners in India. Lockheed Martin is one of the only aerospace and defence companies with a complex aerostructure capability for advanced fighters in India," he added.



TLMAL — a joint venture between Tata Advanced Systems Limited and Lockheed Martin Aeronautics — was established in 2010. TLMAL exemplifies the government of India's Aatmanirbhar Bharat 'Make in India' goals and serves as the single global source of C-130J empennage assemblies that are installed on all new Super Hercules aircraft.



TLMAL recently reached the milestone of manufacturing and delivering the 150th C-130J empennage. Lockheed Martin and TLMAL signed an agreement to develop a fighter wing prototype in 2018. Through this prototype project, TLMAL demonstrated the capability to perform detailed part manufacturing and delivery of a fully compliant representative fighter aircraft wing shipset.



This achievement further strengthens Lockheed Martin's partnership with India; and supports its F-21 offering for procurement of 114 new fighter aircraft — exclusively for India and the Indian Air Force — by proving additional indigenous production capability.



The successful completion of the fighter wing shipset prototype project is another achievement added to the partnership between Tata Advanced Systems and Lockheed Martin, said Sukaran Singh, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Tata Advanced Systems Limited.

"With this, TLMAL creates a new benchmark in complex and end-to-end defence manufacturing in India that demands utmost precision and quality in all aspects of the process “, he added.
