HAL Inks MOU With UPNM Malaysia

Our Bureau - : Mar 30, 2022 - : 1:43 pm

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has signed an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with UPNM Malaysia for collaboration and training of faculty in aerospace and defence technology areas under Industrial collaboration partnership for the former’s FLIT LCA proposal for the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF).

The MoU was inked at the ongoing DSA exhibition in Malaysia.

UPNM is one of the Flagship universities of Malaysia focusing on training students to strengthen the Malaysian talent pool in the Aerospace & Defence sector.

HAL had submitted its FLIT LCA proposal to the RMAF in October 2021 as the former is in contention for a Malaysian requirement for a light fighter and advanced jet trainer. HAL is proposing its Tejas light fighter, which is operational with the Indian Air Force (IAF).

HAL stated that its MoU with UPNM Malaysia was envisaged to bring in synergy between industry and the academia.

HAL has its own management academy in the city of Bengaluru, in India which not only trains company executives but also offers Post Graduate Courses to students who have accreditation from the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

HAL’S long decades of experience in the A&D sector, which include license manufacture of over 200 Sukhoi SU-30 MKIs in India will contribute to the holistic development of the industry and will certainly add value to the growth of the Malaysian Defence Industry especially in the area of Research & Development.

The infrastructure facilities of UPNM will further add to the highly skilled human capital in Malaysia’sA&D sector that will strengthen the Research & Development capabilities to develop indigenous products and platforms.
