EADS Test & Services installs test systems at the Indian Gas Turbine Research Establishment (GTRE) to support combat aircraft development

• EADS Test & Service’s first sale of Throttle Systems into India.

• Kaveri Engine for India’s Light Combat Aircraft (LCA)
EADS Test & Services (T&S) will support the development of the first jet engine to be completely designed and manufactured in India. Following successful acceptance trials, EADS Test & Services will install its Universal Throttle Systems at the Indian Gas Turbine Research Establishment (GTRE). The Throttles will support the Kaveri Engine Development Programme, the Kaveri being the first jet engine to be completely designed and manufactured in India specifically to meet the requirements of the Indian environment and is a key component for India’s Light Combat Aircraft (LCA). The throttle systems have been configured by EADS Test & Services to meet the exacting needs of GTRE in providing a flexible and capable test platform for the Kaveri Engine and they will play a significant role in the development and proving of the Kaveri Engine.

EADS Test & Services contribution to this major ground-breaking, programme in India reinforces Test & Services position as a leading supplier to this growing market sector.

“The Kaveri Engine is the first engine ever developed completely by India and EADS Test & Service are very proud to be associated with it” said Doug McGinn, CEO, T&S UK. “We are delighted that GTRE decided to use our Universal Throttle System and we are confident that it will be able to fully support the engine development programme as it offers the flexibility and programmability required”.

Already providers of the maintenance and upgrade of the Sea King military Helicopter support systems in India, this strategic order with GTRE is another example of EADS T&S’ penetration of the Aerospace and Defence market in India. This complements EADS Defence & Security's other recent successes in the fields of Communications and Electronic warfare in India.
