HAL flies Hawk with indigenous avionics system


Bengaluru: State-run Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) on Wednesday flew advanced jet trainer (AJT) Hawk-i here for the first time with an avionics system it developed, said the defence behemoth.


“The AJT, being built by HAL under licence from British BAE Systems, was flown for the first time with home-grown avionics software, including real-time operating system,” a company official said.

The avionics software provides a standard run-time environment for real-time applications.

“The real-time operating system is a key technology for executing multiple applications and optimal use of hardware in modern avionics software,” said HAL Chairman T Suvarna Raju in a statement on the occasion.

Military aviation regulator Cemilac certified the system for using in the Indian version of the Hawks, flown by the Indian Air Force pilots trained to fly fighter jets in its combat fleet.
