Dassault sets sights on supplying 200 Rafale jets to India over next decade

Julian Hoarau - 17-févr.-2017 10:16:54
French aircraft maker Dassault Aviation on Wednesday said the Indian order for 36 Rafale fighters was a “bit small,” hoping it would swell to around 200 warplanes over the next decade. The firm has factored in an upcoming naval aviation programme to arrive at the figure. Dassault Aviation CEO Eric Trappier said a bigger order would ensure that transfer of technology was meatier and also position the country as a high-end manufacturing hub under the Make in India initiative. India plans to induct some 400 warplanes during the next 10 years to sharpen its military edge. “Thirty six is a good number to start with but we need to build on that foundation. It is not big enough for transfer of technology,” Trappier told a select group of journalists at Aero India-2017. “We are pushing for more orders. We are aware of the Indian military’s requirements and additional orders could come.” India and France signed the $8.7-billion Rafale deal on September 23, 2016. The jets, equipped with latest weapons and tailored for Indian needs, will be delivered between 2019 and 2022. Indian Air Force fighter pilots and technicians will head to France in 2018 to train on the Rafale. The IAF has also cautioned that the 36 fighters are not enough to check the erosion of its IAF’s strength. Trappier said Rafale was a strong competitor for an Indian programme to build twin-engine fighters in the country. He said Dassault would also compete with global rivals for an order to supply 57 carrier-borne fighters to Indian Navy.   “It makes better sense to equip the IAF and the navy with the same platform as it means good logistics, maintenance and industrial support,” he said. US aerospace giant Boeing will also compete for the naval programme with its F-18 Super Hornet. The IAF’s Rafale fighters will be equipped with European missile maker MBDA’s Meteor beyond visual range missiles. MBDA CEO Antoine Bouvier told HT the missile’s no-escape zone was three to four times greater than other missiles. MBDA has formed a joint venture with Larsen & Toubro to take part in upcoming missile programmes under the Make in India plan. “This is MBDA’s first JV outside Europe. We are willing to transfer most sensitive missile technologies,” Bouvier said. Dassault Aviation has forged a joint venture with billionaire Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defence for carrying out its offset obligations bundled with the Rafale deal. Ambani flew in a Rafale fighter at the airshow, pulling 6G (experiencing six times the force of gravity) during the 35-minute sortie.

Dassault Systemes eyes Indian automobile industry with ENOVIA

Anindita BANERJEE - 15-mai-2014 14:37:51
French software company Dassault Systemes is targeting the manufacturing industry, especially the automobile segment, in India with its ENOVIA brand of solutions, which allow close collaboration across divisions, aligning expertise from all domains and share data."When it comes to engineering, the tools are mostly file-based, which hinders sharing of information, design and other changes in real time, thereby leading to delays and cost escalation in some cases," Dassault Systemes ENOVIA Global CEO Andy Kalambi told reporters here. In the Indian market, firms have been going through a rough patch for the last two years and are looking at ways to drive revenues and transform margins, he added."If we look at the manufacturing space in India, there is clearly a need for a solution that can bring together all the process in the industry and make them work on the same page," Dassault Systemes India Managing Director Chandan Chowdhury said.The firm is looking at the manufacturing segment and especially the automobile industry with ENOVIA."Automobile industry that has been facing a decline in sales and is battling a host of issues including rising input and high interest rates can use ENOVIA to not only optimise costs, but also streamline operations," Kalambi said. According to a PwC report, the automobile industry accounts for 6.7 per cent of India’s GDP with an annual turnover of around USD 55 billion in FY 2013 and employs around 18.5 million people.PwC added that giving interest-free repayment and discounts up to 20 per cent to catch customers at dealerships, the car industry faces tough times. ENOVIA is an open and scalable product lifecycle management PLM platform that relies upon universal language of 3D, while providing a strategic foundation for all communities to participate in the product lifecycle online, Kalambi said.  

Antony refuses govt guarantee to France for Rafale deal

Nathalie OSTERNAUD - 31-mars-2014 14:52:53
New Delhi, March 30th, With the UPA-II’s tenure coming to an end, France had wanted India to sign a pact to provide government guarantee for completion of negotiation for 126 fighter aircraft with Dassault company but Defence Minister A K Antony has refused to do so. France, whose company Dassault has been shortlisted for supplying the multi-role medium combat Rafale aircraft, had proposed the signing of the agreement apparently to ensure that negotiations for the multi-billion dollar deal do not get affected if a different party comes to power after the Lok Sabha elections. "The French side wanted government guarantee to the negotiations," sources said. Antony, however, refused to sign such an agreement, arguing that governmental guarantee cannot be provided as negotiations were still underway, they said. The Defence Ministry is still negotiating the price and terms and conditions of the contract with the French firm Dassault Aviation, whose Rafale combat aircraft was selected as the lowest bidder two years ago for supplying 126 warplanes. Antony had recently ordered that the process to arrive at the lowest bidder in the multi-vendor tender be reviewed after completion of the whole procedure involved in the procurement as questions had been raised over it. The two sides are trying to tackle the issue of life cycle costs (LCC) relating to Rafale. "There are complaints about the procedure of calculating the life cycle cost and that issue is not yet settled. Before bringing the deal to the Cabinet Committee on Security for final approval, we would like to get clear on that aspect," he had said. As per the Indian defence procedure, the firms offering lowest prices and meeting the requirements of the respective services are given the contract and in this deal to procure 126 combat aircraft, LCC has been taken into view to determine the lowest bidder. Senior BJP leader and former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha has written to Antony raising a number of questions over the "conceptual shift" in the defence procurement policy and expressed fears that LCC concept may bring in corruption.   Source: PTI
