Subsystems design agreement

BAE Systems and Wipro have signed an agreement to work jointly on the design of subsystems for the air transport and business jet markets.

The arrangement follows a memorandum of agreement signed by BAE Systems and Wipro in June.

The partnership will involve BAE Systems’ operations in Johnson City, New York and Rochester, UK and Wipro Technologies operations in Hyderabad and Bangalore, where technical development centres are being established.

Through the agreement, a number of Wipro staff will be based with BAE Systems in the UK. Work has started in Johnson City, with Wipro staff already on site. Activity will begin at BAE Systems in Rochester before the end of the year.
