Bengaluru, February 5, 2021: HAL received the Provisional Certificate of Engine and Flight Display Unit, (EFDU) indigenously developed for Jaguar DARIN III fighter aircraft platform at Bandhan program during Aero India 2021 today. Mr Arup Chatterjee, Director (Engg and R&D) received the Clearance Certificate from Mr A P V S Prasad, Outstanding Scientist and Chief Executive (Airworthiness), CEMILAC. 

Mr R Madhavan, CMD, HAL said this development would not only lead to self-reliance but also enable HAL to develop further similar smart instrument display system and Multi-Function Display for various aircraft platforms. 

The EFDU developed by Mission and Combat Systems R & D Centre (MCSRD&C), HAL is a flight critical system displaying engine fuel and flight parameters required for flying the aircraft. In case of failure of primary flight display unit, EFDU provides necessary engine, fuel, hydraulics and navigation data required for get-you-home functionality on a single 4”X5” AMl LCD display. This EFDU will replace an Imported Engine and Flight Instrument System (EFIS) Unit thereby giving boost to the ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ initiative.
