    Specific payloads branch


    A specific industrial sector for payloads is developing in cooperation with the company DEFSYS, based in Gurgaon, near New Delhi.

    In 2018, it will assemble the CRB 201 pylon and the ADP 170 adapter for the respective payloads of 2000-litre tank and MICA intercept and air combat missiles under the Rafale wing, using kits supplied by Dassault Aviation, before producing them entirely, from 2019, with primary parts made by Indian companies.

    New transfers for the manufacture of drop tanks are being implemented, with the active support of the French company AEds.

    India has long been recognized as a centre of high competence in IT development. As part of Make in India, part of the development sub-contracting, usually awarded to French companies, has been entrusted to the Indians.

    As with software development, some traditional engineering work will be carried out by Indian companies.
    An engineering centre is under study. Its mission will be to ensure local developments, such as the design of structural elements, support for production activities or the development of support systems.

    The challenge for the DGSI consists in making all the tools and Company reference systems available to Indian subcontractors and Dassault Aviation personnel in charge of supervising them, in an environment controlled and secured by us.

    The possibility of working in collaborative mode in India, as if the engineering centre were in Saint-Cloud, will mark the success of this project. It involves the establishment of a dedicated and efficient France-India gridded network, with an infrastructure managed from Saint-Cloud.

    Finally, the objective is to deliver verified aircraft and products to customers that fully comply with their specifications.
    For the programme directorates, this translates into four major challenges.
    • Use the execution of the 36 Rafale Indiens contract to promote transfer scenarios in the fields of production, but also logistical support and studies in order to achieve the local manufacturing transfer rates necessary to obtain future contracts.
    • To associate Dassault Aviation, its subcontractors and its Indian partners through formal and rigorous processes of methodological transfers.
    • Meet deadlines in this new remote environment.
    • Controlling costs, seeking competitive gains to obtain a return on the major investments made.
    Means are implemented to manage the new Franco-Indian context and control the risks.
    [......]
    The experience gained will enable us to implement the expectations of the Make in India of future Indian Rafale contracts.
