Telangana rolls out red carpet for aerospace research


AeSI and AIAA sign a pact to collaborate in research and development, academic exchange programmes and explore ideas on aerospace and aeronautics

In an attempt to attract aerospace industry and cutting edge research in aeronautics and aerospace, the governments of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on Monday rolled-out red carpet to the industry representatives and scientific community.

In an interactive meeting between representatives from aerospace industry, researchers from defence institutions, academicians and delegates from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), Chief Secretaries from both the States maintained that all possible support would be provided to encourage the sector to flourish.

“Hyderabad already has a robust aerospace industry ecosystem and the government research organisations. We have a 30-day industry clearance system in our new industrial policy. If the industry is of bigger scale, we can give the green light for the project in 15 days, which is not even possible in Singapore. We are here to welcome you,” said Special Chief Secretary, Telangana, K. Pradeep Chandra said.

To collaborate in research and development, academic exchange programmes and explore ideas on aerospace and aeronautics, a MoU was signed between Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI) and AIAA.

Chief Secretary, AP, I.Y.R. Krishna Rao said that the Government of Andhra Pradesh was keen in seeking partnerships with aerospace industry.

“We are coming up with industry hubs at strategic locations, which are close to all the top South Indian cities. This will be of great advantage for research and development institutions,” Mr. Krishna Rao said.

“Indian aerospace industry has strong academic base, skilled and trained manpower, enough knowledge base and technical ability to take up production quickly. Through this MoU, both AeSI and AIAA would gain a lot through co-operation in academics, research and development, industrial and design collaboration,” said Director, Research Centre Imarat, Hyderabad, G. Sateesh Reddy.

Top scientists, researchers, industrial representatives from aerospace, academicians and representatives from AIAA were present.
