Bell Helicopter Collaborates With Indian Labs for Research

US aviation major Bell Helicopter, which has tied up with several Indian laboratories for research in cutting edge technology, is developing futuristic "fancraft" for anti-terrorist operations and emergency medical services in heavily built-up urban areas.
"The X-Hawk will be capable of flying at street level and between buildings in crowded cities with squads of marines (for counter-terrorist missions)," said Kevin Connell, vice president of Bell's "XworX" division that works on products for the future.
Connell said Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, National Aerospace Laboratories and the Indian Institutes of Technology are among the Indian facilities currently collaborating with XworX on five technology projects.
