Head of Asia & CEO India, Cassidian, Dr Peter Gutsmiedl

Dr Peter GutsmiedlWhat is Cassidian’s mission in India?
Cassidian regards India as much more than just an important market. We are investing in this country for a comprehensive and long term partnership. We have already embarked on local development and production in India together with our industrial partners here. The Cassidian Engineering Centre in Bengaluru is a living proof of our commitment to strengthen our partnership with India. The Cassidian Engineering Centre is the first defence oriented engineering facility owned by a foreign company in India. This also demonstrates our trust in the engineering talent that lies in this country. Cassidian’s mission in India is to leverage local talent to offer customised defence and security solutions uniquely suited to the needs of our customers here. In addition, we see scope for marketing such solutions abroad.

What were your main achievements in 2012?
Last year has been a very exciting year for Cassidian in India. Our continuing efforts to firmly embed Bengaluru into Cassidian’s global technology network and develop the Engineering Centre here as a ‘centre of excellence’ delivered first results. A High Accuracy Air Pressure Measurement System was designed and engineered at the Centre. It is a critical on-board sensor providing pilots with highly accurate altitude readings, thus contributing to a safe operation of the aircraft in Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum fly zones. In addition, we engineered locally, a Structurally Integrated Antenna for satellite and GPS communication in aircraft. The antenna is conformal with the structure of the aircraft, thus reducing drag and enhancing its stealth. Last year, Cassidian along with its Indian partner, was selected to provide digital TETRA radio communication coverage for the upcoming Jaipur Metro. Furthermore, in 2012, Cassidian India was awarded the globally recognised aerospace industry quality certification – EN/AS9100. This achievement is a testimony of our hard work towards establishing a world-class defence-industrial footprint in India.
