Exelis and Tata Advanced Systems (TASL) have formed a strategic alliance to support Gen3 night vision requirements in India. Under an MoU, the companys will partner to supply manufacturing capabilities in India, maintenance and life-cycle support for Gen3 night vision products.
To start with, Exelis will provide TASL with the latest Gen3 night vision image intensifier tubes, kits and other materials required to build night vision devices in India, to expedite the delivery of the systems to customers in India. This will be followed by manufacture of high precision components and sub-assemblies of the devices by Tata Advanced Systems.
This is an important alliance for Exelis and Tata Advanced Systems. It allows us to increase our international footprint and provides our allies with the superior products they need to be successful during night missions,” said Nick Bobay, VP and GM of the night vision business area at Exelis. “We look forward to a strong and healthy partnership with Tata Advanced Systems to meet the growing needs of Indian customers.

We are tremendously excited by the potential of the partnership with Exelis” said Vijay Malik, GM (Defence and Security) at TASL. “TASL has set up world class production facilities in collaboration with some of the largest global technology companies to build capability in India, and we aim to replicate the same with Exelis to provide cutting edge night vision solutions to our Defence, Paramilitary and Police forces in the coming years.”
