HCL Technologies, a $4.9 billion company that in three decades has grown from a garage-based start-up (Hindustan Computing) into India’s fifth largest IT company, has been selected by EADS as a tier One partner to support the activities
of its Indian design center in Bangalore. The contract will involve engineering and technical documentation activities and will help EADS to “increase global competitiveness and widen its global industrial reach,” said HCL.

HCL is best known in aerospace for its role in developing the flight management systems for the Boeing 787. For Airbus it has previously developed software for the A340 data acquisition computer, through a contract awarded in 2004. It also won a contract last year from Alenia Aeronautica to provide engineering support for C-27J production.
