MITRE to Support New Aviation R&D Center in India; Lillian Ryals Comments

MITRE Corp. has agreed to continue providing technical support to the Airports Authority of India.

MITRE said the two sides, which have been working together since 2006, formalized the partnership in Montreal last week.

“This important partnership has enabled us to collaborate with AAI in addressing critical aviation issues and establishing an in-country aviation Technical Center,” said Lillian Ryals, senior vice president and general manager of MITRE’s center for advanced aviation system development.

MITRE said it has been working with AAI since 2006 to provide solutions to meet India’s growing aviation needs.

“AAI has taken a strategic move to develop a long-term partnership with MITRE for technical support in the areas of communications, navigation, and surveillance, ATM system planning and implementation strategy, specialized competence-based management training, technology transfer activities and adopting industry best practices, and software development,” said V. Somasundaram, AAI member.

In April, MITRE and AAI signed a memorandum of understanding, through which MITRE will provide technical support to AAI’s establishment of an in-house research and development capability in an effort to improve India’s aviation infrastructure.

Montreal is hosting the International Civil Aviation Organization’s 12th Air Navigation Conference from Nov. 19 to Nov. 30.
