BrahMos signs MoU for high speed aircraft and missiles tech

The MoU was inked here with the Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI) and NPO Mashinostroyeniya (NPOM) corporation on the first day of the MAKS, 2011 (Moscow air show), BrahMos officials said here.

The MoU was signed by BrahMos CEO A Sivathanu Pillai, A N Geraschenko, Rector of MAI and Chief of NPOM Corporation Alexander Leonov. "It will bring together best scientific minds to study the hypersonic technology which will eventually pave way for the advanced BrahMos-II missile system," they said.

Speaking on the occasion, Pillai said, "It is a remarkable step for BrahMos, NPOM and MAI to come together and work in this field." BrahMos had earlier signed a similar MoU with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in New Delhi to mark the 10th anniversary of first launch of its missile.

The Moscow Aviation Institute is one of the world-leading engineering universities dedicated to aerospace technologies and the NPOM is one of the leading aerospace enterprises in Russia.
