Boeing Opens India Research and Technology Centre to Advance Aerospace Innovation
BENGALURU, India, March 31, 2009 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] today announced the opening of its Boeing Research & Technology-India centre, which will help sustain the company's competitive technological edge while enhancing India's aerospace capabilities. The center marks another milestone of Boeing's long term relationship with India.
This centre will carry out continued collaboration with Indian R&D organizations, including government agencies and private sector R&D providers, universities and other companies.
"Boeing is partnering with the best researchers around the world to find the best technology solutions for our customers, and we look forward to working with our partners here in India on some promising new technologies," said John Tracy, Boeing chief technology officer and senior vice president Engineering, Operations & Technology.
Boeing's research in India will break new ground in aero structures, aerodynamics and electronic networks with a team of senior researchers, scientists and engineers. This is Boeing's third advanced research centre outside the U.S., the others being in Europe and Australia. The centre will also coordinate the work of more than 1,500 technologists, including 100 advanced technology researchers, from across India on projects that will help define the future of aerospace.
"Boeing is defined by its technological edge," said Dinesh Keskar, president of Boeing India. "Working with India's technology leaders helps Boeing assimilate new ideas and innovative processes into our products and programs. This also is good for India because it helps grow the capabilities of the Indian R&D community to meet the emerging needs in country."
The Boeing Research & Technology-India centre will build upon an already solid foundation of collaborative research projects in India. For example, since 2007, Boeing has been working together with the Indian Institute of Science and two leading Indian information technology companies, Wipro and HCL, as part of the Aerospace Network Research Consortium. This is India's first public-private aerospace research consortium and it is devoted to emerging network technologies and concepts.

Microsoft's largest facility outside US opens in Hyderabad
Microsoft India Development Centre (MSIDC) inaugurated a new facility on Tuesday, its largest outside the United States, at its campus in Hyderabad.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy inaugurated the new building on the 10th anniversary of the company.
This building, the third in the campus at Gachibowli on the outskirts of the city, has been constructed to meet global quality standards and can house more than 2000 employees, Microsoft officials said.
It has recently won the Leeds Gold certification for energy efficiency and hi-tech safety systems, they added. "In 2003-04, IT exports from Andhra Pradesh were 8 per cent but over the last four years, it has grown to 15 per cent of the country's total exports, thanks to companies like Microsoft," Reddy said.
"MSIDC employees have made very significant impact because the innovative software products that they develop touch the lives of millions around the world. I would like to congratulate everyone on reaching this important milestone, and look forward to even greater success in the decade ahead," Microsoft chairman Bill Gates said in a recorded message.
MSIDC corporate vice president and managing director Srini Koppolu said the last 10 years have been an amazing journey, growing from 20 to 1,500 people and developing several state-of-the-art products for Microsoft from India.
the comparison between Pakitan's development and india's..........it's really unnecessary，you should look on the bright side ,china 's development causes much more environmental damage than pakistan's and india's.our high huilding is everywhere in the city,but our clean air and clear sky are no way close to our city........now we have to spend billions to survive the pollution,thanks god chinese govt have realized our situation , but it's kind of a joke we sacrificed our environment making the clothes for other countries,and the most funny part is that china is always being accused for global warming even though our pollution per capita is only one-eighth compare to US.seriously doubt our situation will getting better in a short time,1.3B chinese.... there are alway a lot of making close chinese......just hope our situation won't getting worse, and good luck to pakistan's development and india's .one suggestion for india:control the population，it's not alway good thing when you have large population..... i really should stop blahing now....... off topic.....

Tata – ISRO building india’s first hydrogen bus
Similar to China, nowadays india face the heat from global environment protectionist. India’s NTPC(National Thermal Power Corporation) rated as the world’s third largest polluting firm. Another similarity with china, india will ply fuel cell (ZEV-Zero Emission Vehicle) buses in coming years. Indian government already proposed 1 million vehicles running on alterante fules in 2020. Taking the initiative forward, Tata Motors and ISRO(Indian Space Research Organisation) plans to build a hydrogen bus by 2010(possibly before the commonwealth games). Tata and ISRO is already working on the project and a prototype is expected to be ready by December 2008. Tata Motors has contributed Rs5 crore to the project, while Isro is spending Rs1 crore in building the prototype. Tata Motors will build the frame and chassis while ISRO will provide expertise for handling(storing) liquid hydrogen. Fuel cell will be imported from canadian firm( possibly Ballard Systems ).
India’s first hydrogen bus will be a 60-seater proto-model. The bus will roughly cost Rs 80 lakh with per kg of hydrogen gas that will run it costing around Rs 120 per kg or more. A 40-kg cylinder will allow the bus to run 560 km, ie an entire day for a typical metro bus. “In short run it may be costly, but in long run when we are on the verge of hydrocarbon extinction, people will be willing to pay anything. We are working on a bus now because that will be more economical than a car as it would carry 60 people. In Phase II we will come out with a car with lower cost of hydrogen gas. Technological challenge of conversion of gas to electricity is immediate for ISRO now,’’ architect of the bus, V Vnanagandhi, programme director, ISRO, Ahmedabad, said.
