Aerospace and Defense Engineering Capabilities


The dynamics of the carrier-passenger relationship is truly changing with passenger experience taking center stage, as consumers demand vibrant and revitalized services, in a bold, connected and deeply digitized landscape. In order to retain competitive edge, propel customer loyalty, boost brand value, and increase revenues, aerospace industry’s success will be determined by its ability to redefine passenger experience by leveraging ‘disruptive’ innovations through technology.

We believe that the answer lies in understanding the massive importance of becoming a 21st Century Enterprise, and unified experience lies at the core of 21st century ecosystem. To realize the full benefit of staging experiences, products and services need to be taken as base and experience is weaved around to engage individual customer.

With nearly 2 decades of extensive experience and expertise of working on some of the major civilian and defense aircraft programs, across the globe, HCLTech has been weaving experiences at every touch point of our Aerospace and Defense customers.
