Airbus is one of the top 2 makers of commercial aircraft

L&T Technology Services, which provides outsourced engineering services, said it has won a contract from aircraft maker Airbus India to manage their Avionics Software Development, V&V (Validation & Verification) and Data Analytics.

The size and duration of the deal have not been disclosed.

L&T Technology Services Limited (LTTS) is a listed subsidiary of construction major Larsen & Toubro, and provides Engineering and R&D (ER&D) services, such as consultancy, design, development and testing. It distinguishes itself from bigger players by focusing on providing services with a heavy engineering component – such product design.

“The win has been a direct result of LTTS’ years of expertise in the aviation space and the company’s timely investment in cutting-edge technologies,” it claimed.

“LTTS’ distinct advantage in the aerospace landscape includes ITAR (International Traffic in Arms) Compliance & CEMILAC (The Centre for Military Airworthiness & Certification) Certified State-of-art facilities, strong global customer base, robust lab & testing infrastructure and strategic alliances with Fortune 500 companies.”

Manufacturing companies across the world are tying up with outsourced service providers to transform their operations with the infusion of technology.

While many go with generic outsourcing partners like Infosys, Accenture and TCS, some choose to go with players like LTTS and Persistent Systems, which are focused on a segment within the overall manufacturing ecosystem.

Many companies, such as TCS and Wipro, have come up with sophisticated solutions that help companies cut down the cost of their operations or significantly cut the time they take to bring a product to the market.

EU-based Airbus is one of the world’s two largest makers of aircraft.

“The new-age business opportunities in aviation sector call for a transformative approach including fresh ideas, elaborate evaluation of best-fit technology solution and capability to accelerate business growth through innovation,” said the Indian company’s chief operating officer, Abhishek Sinha .

L&T Technology Services, which has 16,700 employees, counts 69 Fortune 500 companies and 51 of the world’s top ER&D companies among its clients.
