BRAHMOS missile Checkout Equipment unveiled at Data Patterns

NEW DELHI (BNS): Chennai-based Defence and Aerospace company Data Patterns has unveiled the 27th Checkout Equipment (COE) for supersonic BRAHMOS cruise missile system.

The indigenously developed Checkout Equipment was unveiled in the presence of Shri Atul Dinkar Rane, Outstanding Scientist, Director General BrahMos, DRDO and CEO & MD, BrahMos Aerospace, at Data Patterns' facility in Chennai.

The COE, designed and built by Data Patterns based on the requirements and support of DRDO and BrahMos Aerospace, is ready for delivery.

“We are delighted to unveil the 27th BRAHMOS Missile Checkout Equipment that is ready for delivery. BrahMos is an important customer of Data Patterns. We have always delivered all their requirements on schedule, maintained the quality standards, and provided maintenance support consistently exceeding the uptime requirements. Indigenous development of the COE by Data Patterns has resulted in a direct cost savings of about 75% in foreign exchange for BrahMos,” Mr. Srinivasagopalan Rangarajan, Chairman & Managing Director, Data Patterns (India) Ltd said on the occasion on Wednesday (March 22).

The unit validates complete performance of the missile through interfacing with its umbilical and maintenance connections. The shelter mounted checkout equipment is utilized to test the articles on the field during its life cycle, thus ensuring readiness for launch on demand.

The COE for BRAHMOS is a VME-based ‘three Bay’ test system used to check the health and functionality of the electrical sub-systems of the weapon.

The test system consists of three major sub-systems. The first subsystem is the main processor unit which is used for the Man Machine Interface (MMI) such as Keyboard, Joystick, Printer, Monitor and External interface for Storage media. The second is an Input Output Subsystem which interfaces with the Missile for carrying out the test. The third is dedicated to self-control and self-test. The COE is designed for transportability.

“The COE has been deployed by all the three Armed Forces at multiple locations across India today. We are delighted to see Data Patterns, an Indian company leading the way in this industry.

“On behalf of the entire BrahMos team, I take this opportunity to commend them for having delivered mission critical systems on all the programmes that they have partnered with us on time. We are proud to be associated with Data Patterns and look forward to a long-standing collaboration,” Shri Atul Dinkar Rane, the BrahMos Chief, said.
