INTRODUCTION
1. 1. INDUSTRY PROFILE
Hindustan Aeronautics Limited is an Aerospace Industry. Aerospace comprises the atmosphere of Earth and surrounding space. Typically the term is used to refer to the industry that researches, designs, manufactures, operates, and maintains vehicles moving through air and space. Aerospace is a very diverse field, with a multitude of commercial, industrial and military applications. In many industrial countries, the Aerospace Industry operates on a cooperative venture between public and private industries. For example, several countries have a space program under the command of the government, such as National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the United States, Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) in Europe, the Canadian Space Agency in Canada, Indian Space Research Organization in India, RKA in Russia, China National Space Administration in China, and Iranian Space Agency in Iran. Along with these public space programs, many companies produce technical tools and components such as spaceships and satellites. Some known companies involved in space programs include Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS), and Boeing. These companies are also involved in other areas of aerospace such as the construction of the aircraft. Aerospace manufacturing is a high technology Industry that manufactures aircraft, guided missiles, space vehicles, aircraft engines, propulsion units and related parts, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Web site. Most of the industry is geared towards governmental work. For each Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), the US government has assigned a Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code. These codes help to identify each manufacturers repair facilities and other critical after market vendors in the aerospace industry. In the European Union, Aerospace companies such as EADS, British Aerospace (BAE) Systems, Tales, Assault, Saab and Finmeccanica account for a large share of the global aerospace industry and research effort, with the European Space Agency as one of the largest consumers of aerospace technology and products. In Peoples Republic of China, Beijing, Xian, Changed, Shanghai, Shenyang and Nanchang are major research and

manufacture centres of aerospace industry. China has developed extensive capability to design, test and produce military aircraft, missiles and space vehicles; however, despite the experimental model of Y-10, which was abolished in 1984, China is still developing its civil aerospace industry. In India, Bangalore is a major hub of aerospace industry, being the place where Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, the National Aerospace Laboratories and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) have successfully accomplished its project to send an orbiter to moon. This project has been titled Chandrayaan (Moon Craft). In Russia, large aerospace companies like Oboronprom and the United Aircraft Building Corporation (encompassing Mikoyan, Sukhoi, Ilyushin, Tupolev, Yakovlev, and Irkutwhich includes Beriev) are among the major global players in the industry. The historic Soviet Union was also the home of a very major aerospace industry. The United Kingdom formerly attempted to maintain its own large aerospace industry, making its own airliners, warplanes, etc., but it has largely turned lot over to cooperative efforts with continental companies, and it has turned into a large import customer, too, from countries like the United States. However, UK has a very active Aerospace sector supplying components, sub-assemblies and sub-systems to other manufacturers, both in Europe and all over the world, including the United States. Price Waterhouse & Coopers and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) released a report titled Changing Dynamics- Indias Aerospace Industry at Aero India 2009. According to the report, while activity in the Indian Aerospace Industry is primarily driven by government/Public Sector Units (PSUs), the potential opportunities, both public and private, in the design to build lifecycle are tremendous. Indias engineering workforce, its rapidly developing engineering services/research and development (R&D) expertise and its strategic position in South East Asia, makes it a potential global hub for manufacturing and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO).
