Bengaluru. Combat Management System (CMS) for Indigenous Aircraft Carrier (IAC) developed by M/s Tata Power Strategic Engineering Division (Tata Power SED) was handed over to Indian Navy in a ceremony held at Tata Power SED facility in Bengaluru on March 28.

The CMS was handed over by M/s Tata Advanced Systems Ltd CEO and MD Sukaran Singh to Indian Navy’s Chief of Materiel Vice Admiral GS Pabby, who is a recipient of President’s award of PVSM AVSM VSM, on successful completion of all tests and trials.

The event was attended by Rear Admiral Antony George, NM VSM ACNS (SR), Rear Admiral SK Nair, NM ACOM (IT&S) and other senior officers from the Indian Navy, and M/s Tata Power SED, including firm’s COO Neelesh Tungar and CTO R Muralidharan.

This is a major landmark on Indian Navy’s thrust towards Government of India’s policy of ‘Make in India’ to encourage indigenous development and promoting private industry participation. It also assumes great significance as it is the first CMS developed by a private industry for Indian Navy and is for India’s Indigenous Aircraft Carrier.

Before accepting, the system software and hardware were subjected to rigorous acceptance trials. The system successfully cleared all acceptance tests, endurance and full load trials.
