Chennai: Data Patterns (India) Limited, a defence and aerospace electronics solutions provider, has unveiled the 27th BrahMos Missile Checkout Equipment at its facility in Chennai. Shri Atul DinkarRane, Director General BrahMos, DRDO and CEO & MD, BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited formally unveiled the equipment. Data Patterns has designed and built the BrahMos Missile Checkout Equipment based on the requirements and support of DRDO and BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited.
The BrahMos Missile Checkout Equipment is a VME-based three-bay test system used to check the health and functionality of the electrical sub-systems of the missile. The test system consists of three major subsystems. The first subsystem is the main processor unit which is used for the Man Machine Interface (MMI), such as Keyboard, Joystick, Printer, Monitor and External interface for Storage media. The second is an Input-Output Subsystem which interfaces with the missile for carrying out the test. The third is dedicated to self-control and self-test. The COE is designed for transportability.
Data Patterns has delivered all the requirements of BrahMos on schedule, maintained quality standards, and provided maintenance support consistently exceeding the uptime requirements. The indigenous development of the COE by Data Patterns has resulted in a direct cost savings of about 75% in foreign exchange for BrahMos. The BrahMos Missile Checkout Equipment validates the complete performance of the missile through interfacing with its umbilical and maintenance connections. The shelter mounted checkout equipment is utilized to test the articles on the field during its life cycle, thus ensuring readiness for launch on demand.
All three armed forces have deployed the COE at multiple locations across India today. BrahMos is an important customer of Data Patterns. Data Patterns has over three decades of experience and a reputation for excellence, emerging as a leading player in the defence electronics industry. The company is strongly committed to providing innovative and reliable solutions to meet the evolving needs of its clients.
On behalf of the entire BrahMos team, Shri Atul DinkarRane commends Data Patterns for delivering mission-critical systems on all the programs that they have partnered with BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited on time. Data Patterns is proud to be associated with BrahMos and looks forward to a long-standing collaboration.
