Abaco at Aero India

Further evidence of our worldwide presence

From 14-18 February, we were at the 11th edition of Aero India, which is described as “Asia’s Premier Air Show”. 750+ companies were there – half of them indigenous, and half from overseas.  No fewer than 72 aircraft were on show at the 27,000+ square metre exhibition space at Yelahanka Air Force Station, with ministerial/defence heads/secretary level delegations from 109 countries in attendance as well as more than 150,000 business visitors and 300,000 general visitors.

On the first day of the show, the AEW&CS small surveillance plane – a project of India's Defence Research and Development Organisation to develop an airborne early warning and control system for the Indian Air Force - was inducted into the Air Force. Abaco supplied VME-based SBCs for its operator workstation.  The Aeronautical Development Agency prominently displayed our open architecture computer which is used as the mission computer in the prestigious Tejas single-seat, single-jet engine, multi-role light combat aircraft.
