Northrop Grumman & Pipavav Shipyard sign MOU
U.S. defense major Northrop Grumman and Gujarat based Pipavav Shipyard have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to co-operate and leverage each others strengths while building capabilities for mutual security interests between the United States and India.
"This Memorandum of Understanding represents the first step in exploring potential business relationships between Northrop Grumman's Electronic Systems sector and the Pipavav Shipyard in India resulting from synergies in technology, experience, and capabilities for the mutual security interests of the United States and India.
This memorandum covers the exchange of programmatic and planning information in accordance with the export laws of the governments of India and the United States. It also allows both companies to identify synergies and develop operational concepts that may benefit future potential customers."

French and Indian pilots exchange notes on flying. Grp Cpt George Thomas is a former Commanding Officer of a Su-30MKI squadron and flew in the Red Flag exercise in the US.
India's ace LCA pilot George Joseph and French pilots De L'Air, Plu Vinjae and others shared some fantastic bonhomie at the flight operations centre at Yelahanka air base on Friday. Engaged in intense conversation, India's LCA pilot and the French pilots exchanged notes on the LCA, Su-30, Rafale, F-18 and the art of flying.
The French pilots, fascinated by the LCA, inquired about how India's indigenous aircraft project was coming along. While the French pilots said they were mighty impressed by the light and compact aircraft, George explained how the LCA coasted through almost 1,500 flights, tackling in its wake a whole lot of technical issues typical of any developing aircraft. "The test flights have been a challenge. We went through many new developments. The software was continually upgraded and we arrived even to the fly-by-wire system. We've just received certification," George explained to the attentive French pilots.
One of the French pilots remarked: "I've been seeing the LCA fly for the past two days. It looks a very good aircraft to me. It has good flight abilities and I get the feeling it's doing well." One other pilot had just finished a good deal of research on the LCA, having gone to the aircraft and examined it closely.
Another French pilot said: "Cockpit comfort will be an important factor for a pilot to say how the aircraft is. Weaponization is another. For an aircraft that's coming up, its very good. But yes, ultimately flying the aircraft will tell us how good it is."
Then the LCA pilot and his French counterparts exchanged notes on how the Su-30 operated. The French were keen to know about the Sukhoi, given that it is the mainstay of the IAF and probably the deadliest air superiority fighter in the world. All of then congratulated each other for the flight displays and signed off, hoping to meet again.
