Wipro has signed an agreement with CAE Inc to jointly address the growing simulation-based training, operations, maintenance and training support services opportunities for India’s defence forces.
Wipro and CAE will collaborate to provide training systems integration and simulation-based solutions for areas like war gaming, C4ISR and a range of defence platforms expected to be acquired by India’s defence forces. The two companies will also work together to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) meet offset obligations in India that are required by India’s Ministry of Defence. Both companies shall provide joint investments, sales support and local production support based on the respective expertise of each company.
“We are committed to enhancing India’s defence capabilities, and part of this commitment involves bringing state-of-the-art capabilities, technologies and solutions to India through collaboration and partnership with global leaders,” said Mr. Partha Sarathi Guha Patra, Vice President, Defence, Security & Offsets for Wipro. “CAE is a recognized leader in training systems integration and simulation technologies, and a company that has made significant investments in India, so we are excited to team with CAE to better serve India’s defence forces.”
Wipro will also work closely with Bangalore-based CAE India Pvt Ltd, which is incorporated in India and is part of CAE’s global family of companies serving the defence market. CAE India is leveraging CAE’s full breadth of simulation products, technologies and capabilities to address the requirements of India’s defence forces.
“The Indian defence market is of strategic importance to CAE and this importance is demonstrated in the investments and strategic relationships CAE has established in India,” said Ash Sarin, CAE’s Regional Vice President, Marketing & Business Development. “Wipro is one of India’s largest and most respected companies, and we are pleased to join with them to address the future needs of defence market in India with world-class simulation and training solutions.”
