: 18 February, 2013  (Application Story)
Italian aircraft manufacturer has engaged engineering services from Tata Technologies for structural design and analysis on the Multirole Patrol Aircraft

Tata Technologies has won a multi-year engineering services contract from Piaggio Aero Industries, the oldest aircraft manufacturer in Italy and a pioneer in aviation. Tata Technologies will deliver a complete structural design and analysis solution for the aviation major’s new Multirole Patrol Aircraft (MPA). Tata Technologies and its joint venture with Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL), TATA HAL Technologies, will deliver on this esteemed engagement. This is one of the first of its kind engineering services collaboration in the private aerospace sector in India.

Tata HAL Technologies will deliver end-to-end optimized structural design, engineering, manufacturing, and certification documents for the aircraft fuselage inclusive of the vertical fin in two separate phases. Piaggio Aero’s Multirole Patrol Aircraft (MPA) is the evolution of the company’s P180 Avanti II multi-utility aircraft, which is newly designed to make it uniquely capable of surveillance, law enforcement and security missions. The MPA’s main features include an enhanced airframe, increased maximum take-off weight, additional fuel tanks and a new aerodynamic configuration and a reinforced wing providing an increased surface and higher aspect ratio.

On this occasion, Mr Eligio Trombetta, General Manager, Piaggio Aero Industries was quoted saying “With the MPA, we were looking at meeting the market need for a robust technological solution for land, coastal, maritime and offshore security. We are confident that Tata Technologies’ highly skilled and talented resource pool will help us rapidly scale towards meeting our ambitious program targets.”

“Engineering the new MPA aircraft requires the ability to meet stringent weight targets in an aggressive timeline for design modifications. We believe Tata Technologies’ competency in aero-structures design coupled with close collaboration with our own engineers will ensure high quality and timely delivery,” Mr Trombetta added.

Mr Samir Yajnik, President Global Services & COO Asia-Pacific, Tata Technologies said; “We are delighted to have won this prestigious mandate to work for Piaggio Aero, a leading player in the global aviation industry. We are a company of passionate engineers and are excited about this engagement where we will deliver an end-to-end solution leveraging our Global Engagement Model for providing transformational engineering services. I am confident of meeting all expectations set upon us and look forward towards a long-term relationship with Piaggio Aero.”
