Welcome to the Avionics Division, Hyderabad of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited.

In early sixties, it was strongly felt that our defence services should be more self reliant in defence related equipment, electronics in particular. This resulted in HAL setting up a full - fledged unit to cater to the aviation electronics (AVIONICS ). Thus Avionics Division, Hyderabad was born in the year 1965.

To begin with, the Division's dedicated design team took up the task of indigenising, the following critical avionics.

  • Identification of Friend or Foe

  • UHF Communication set

  • V/UHF Communication System

  • Automatic Direction Finder (ADF)

  • Radio Alimeter

These systems were developed, qualified, flight tested and inducted into the various MiG aircraft manufactured under licence in India. Later on, the same equipments were fine tuned to meet the requirement of other aircraft like Kiran, Jaguar, Dornier, AN-32 and Helicopters.

Today the Division has spread its wings further to meet the Communication and Navigation requirements of our defence customers and the Division is fully geared to enter the international market too.
