The Society of Innovation and Development (SID) at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) will be part of a collaborative research and development effort in the field of avionics system for next generation aerospace technologies with Safran, the French aerospace, defence and security company.

The Foundation for Innovation & Technology Transfer at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi is also a part of this truck.

An agreement to this regard was signed recently between the company and respective institutes in the presence of the French Ambassador to India, François Richier.

Initially, the collaboration will focus on projects that involve the development of advanced, safe and secure multicore architectures and the evolution of advanced machine learning algorithms with low computational requirements. The results of such projects are expected to significantly enhance advanced avionics and security applications.

Prof Jayant Modak, Chief Executive, SID, IISc said: “We are pleased that one of our startups, Morphing Machines, is also collaborating with Safran R&D.”

Alain Coutrot, Deputy Director, Research & Technology, Safran, said, “Safran has always been proud of its association with India’s aerospace and defence programmes.”
Safran presently employs more than 2,600 employees in the country.

“These two partnerships are certainly a great step towards the development of future technology options,” said Stéphane Lauret, CEO, Safran India.
