July 12, 2016

General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA ASI), a leading manufacturer of Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) systems, radars, and electro-optic and related mission systems solutions, today announced that it plans to expand its presence in India and open an office in New Delhi by the end of the year.

GA-ASI recognizes the importance of India and looks forward to working more closely with the Indian Government from its new local office. The company plans to increase collaboration with India in the areas of maritime security and maritime domain awareness, which are key missions for the Indian Ministry of Defense and the Indian Navy.

“We are looking forward to continuing to enhance our cooperation with India by working with the U.S. Government to provide the Indian Navy with persistent, operationally proven maritime domain awareness,” said Linden Blue, CEO, GA-ASI.

The maritime environment in which the Indian Navy operates is both vast and diverse. Unpredictable weather patterns over the Indian Ocean dictate stringent performance requirements for airborne surveillance systems.
