HCL’s Aerospace practice has experienced an explosive growth in its core avionics skills and ability to run complex and large programs over a period of last five years. HCL’s end-to-end services both hardware and software in avionics intends to bring the Research & Development Transformation to our clients.

Practitioners combining over 7000 person years of experience in avionics specific programming languages, methodologies, tools, operating systems, compilers and standards make us the largest Avionics Development practice in India.

We are now getting complete outsourcing assignments of independent development of core avionics subsystems. We are the first Indian IT solutions provider for Aerospace industry to obtain AS 9100 certification which is a testimony to the quality and domain expertise.

Services Spread

HCL partners with leading avionics companies on their core avionics systems such as flight control systems, flight management systems, communication navigation systems, Cabin Systems and display systems.

HCL expertise on avionics also encompasses a range of mission critical avionics, including electrical systems, power systems, environment systems, fire protection systems, test systems, hydraulics, landing gear and in-flight entertainment.

Air Traffic Management Avionics

HCL’s Avionics practice works on systems for new aircraft programs, besides maintaining and enhancing avionics for aircraft in operation. This experience ranges from software and hardware design, implementation to integration and testing.

Among our strengths is an end to end design and development capability with integrated services covering both hardware and software. HCL further aids clients in testing and certification of these systems by building test equipment, carrying out independent verification and validation and environmental stress screening.
