India has awarded a euro 13 million deal to Airbus Defence and Space for the delivery of a dedicated facility in the country for the maintenance and repairs of its submarine fleet periscopes. The project is due to be completed in September 2016. Once maintenance work can be done locally, the operators can speed up this process and enhance the operational readiness of the Indian fleet. For the implementation of the facility, Airbus Defence and Space is partnering with Tata Consultancy Services and H&H Precision Private Limited.
