Dynamatic Aerospace, a part of Dynamatic Technologies, today signed a contract with Boeing for the manufacture of cabinets to house critical power and mission equipment for Boeing's P8I maritime surveillance aircraft.
Boeing is customising the P8I maritime surveillance aircraft for the Indian Navy, for which the ministry of defence has placed an order on Boeing, Dynamatic Tech said in filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
The contract is significant for Dynamatic as it is the first time the company is receiving a direct order from aerospace major Boeing, the release said, adding, "Dynamatic and Boeing are working towards having the first article ready for inspection by October 2010."
Dynamatic Aerospace, a division of Dynamatic Technologies, is in the fabrication of parts required for the Russia-made Su-30 MKI fighter plane for the Indian Air Force.
Last week, Dynamatic Aerospace received the Boeing quality management system (BQMS) approval, and, is now a Boeing-approved supplier.
Dynamatic Aerospace was conferred the BQMS on the basis of the recognition documentation from UL DQS Inc, which the division had submitted to Boeing.
Dynamatic is already an Airbus-approved supplier, and now, with the BQMS approval in hand, the aerospace division of Dynamatic is uniquely positioned to further augment its leadership position in the Indian private sector by collaborating with international aerospace majors on export initiatives, a company release said.
