NEW DELHI (PTI): Indian defence major Tata Advanced Systems on Thursday announced a tie up with global military manufacturer Cobham for manufacturing latest air-to-air refuelling equipment.

"Cobham and Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL) have agreed that TASL will manufacture for Cobham's world-leading fifth generation air-to-air refuelling equipment at TASL's facility in Hyderabad, India," a Tata Group release said.

The firm said Tata was selected by Cobham after "a rigorous sourcing and selection process where TASL were able to evidence world class capabilities and the capacity to support delivery against Cobham's requirements."

Cobham said the partnership with TASL "is further evidence of the strategic importance of India in the company's strategy to grow its market presence and supply chain."

"This business agreement has been implemented as a key element of our business strategy to establish a world class supply chain footprint in India to support long term programme delivery obligations, including proposed India air-to-air refuelling requirements. This multi-million pound engagement marks the beginning of a strategic long term arrangement with TASL," said David Squires, Chief Operating Officer of Cobham.

"We seek to develop this into a strategic partnership wherein we would be partners in the growth and success of Cobham and its customers," said TASL CHairman S Ramadorai.
