Sasmos Het Technologies, a Bengaluru-based manufacturer of wiring harness, electro-mechanical assemblies and unit integration products, has delivered the 2,000th wiring harness assembly for the MICA programme and the first for the Asraam programme.

Asraam and MICA are air-to-air missiles selected by the Indian Air Force. The Indian company first started work with MBDA (a European developer and manufacturer of missiles) on MICA in 2013 and has since then delivered on time 2,000 wiring harnesses.

Sasmos received an order from MBDA for the Asraam programme and has successfully delivered qualified first article products. The company, through its continuous collaboration with MBDA, has delivered products for these missile systems.

Over a decade, Sasmos has progressed from being a start-up to a preferred partner for OEMs and created a benchmark for mission-critical aerospace and defence harness manufacturing in India.

These two milestones are significant in the ‘Make in India’ initiative and underscore the importance of Indian manufacturers in building the future of aerospace and defence globally. Sasmos has worked continuously with MBDA to bring new technologies to India, and create a talented work force through collaboration in manufacturing.

According to Loïc Piedevache, MBDA country head, India: “This delivery is not just an important milestone for Sasmos, but also for MBDA and the Indian aerospace and defence manufacturing industry.”

“This is also a good example of MBDA’s industrial partnership in India. For many years MBDA has been working closely with Indian Industrial partners on high end technologies with significant quantities and business values over the years,” he added.

Chandra Shekar, Founder and Managing Director, Sasmos, said: “Our collaboration with MBDA has enabled us to create new competencies in India to deliver quality products to mission critical aerospace and defence applications. We are confident to grow with MBDA’s India initiative further and we have crafted a robust plan to take forward this initiative”.
