INDIA SELECTS MARTIN MARIETTA FOR FLIGHT CONTROL SYSTEM

 BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Martin Marietta Corporation (NYSE: ML) has been selected by the government of India's Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE) to supply the integrated flight control system for that nation's Light Combat Aircraft.
 Under the contract, Martin Marietta Control Systems of Johnson City, N.Y., and ADE will design, develop and test the system and supply the hardware, software and test equipment. The Light Combat Aircraft system will consist of a flight control computer, air data sensor, rate and acceleration sensors and actuators.
 Martin Marietta and the Indian agency will integrate the flight controls with control surface actuators to be supplied by subcontractor Moog, Inc., of East Aurora, N.Y.
 India's Light Combat Aircraft will be an indigenous, lightweight, advanced-technology aircraft with multi-role capability. Production of the aircraft is expected to begin later this decade, with a total of 200 to be built.
 Vice Adm. S.K. Ray, India's project director for the Light Combat Aircraft flight control system, said, "Martin Marietta was selected because of its experience with fly-by-wire systems and its demonstrated ability to meet the demanding requirements of this program."
 Martin Marietta flight controls systems are in production or development for a number of military aircraft, including the U.S. F/A 18, B-2, V-22 and C-17 and Sweden's JAS 39.
