Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and Safran Aircraft Engines have signed a MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) announcing their intent to work together on bringing niche engine technology to India.

Under the terms of the MOU, HAL and Safran Aircraft Engines intend to explore opportunities to assemble the Safran M88 engine and manufacture components for the engine with HAL for an additional batch of Rafale aircraft for India and for any aircraft manufactured in India by HAL fitted with the M88.

The transfer of a significant amount of technology in the assembling/manufacturing programs is also contemplated. The MOU also encompasses collaboration between HAL and Safran Aircraft Engines for indigenization programs relating to design and development of high-thrust engines of 110 kN power and above with transfer of key technology in the framework of this development.
