Sastra Robotics, we are a Kochi based startup aiming to cross paths with some of the best organizations to grow and expand our business culture. While peddling on the journey, a recent event etched success in our name.
A couple of weeks ago, Lockheed Martin, the American Company of Global Aerospace Defense Security, signed an MoU with us. This opened doors for an Indian start-up to enter the segment of avionics testing. Though this might be just the start of our ever-growing journey, it is a moment of pride for our entire team.
With things aligning the way we expect it to, soon we would serve as a supplier to the company along with other OEMs. We, under the influence of Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM), build innovative robotic platforms that promote automation in the field of product testing and review in the manufacturing industry.
This is a major move as now, we would be testing avionics display of fighter jets and this also includes F-21.
To quote the words of Vivek Lall, Vice President for Strategy and Business Development at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, after the deal:
“The agreements attest to the commitment of Lockheed Martin to cultivate and integrate indigenous content into global systems and platforms. Through the agreement, we look to provide engineering support, mentoring, and assistance in the qualification of some of the technologies proposed, all of which contribute to our mission of making in India.”
It feels great to be part of such a wonderful collaboration. It’s not just we and our team that the company is about but also the city and Nation on a whole.
We further look forward to justifying the agreement and emerge as a leading robotics organization worldwide.
