CARES - Centre for Avionics REpair and Software development

India’s premier Naval Electronic Repair Facility. A deep level repair facility (D level) supporting India indegenous strategy

Revolutionise and modernise avionic repair infrastructure

The CARES (Centre for Avionics REpair and Software development) facility is designed and developed by Leonardo and was formally commissioned in 2001. The facility operates as a Depot deep level repair station and is fully equipped to enable repairs to be completed to LRU/Module/SRI levels (3rd/4th line). Viewed as the ‘benchmark’ repair facility within the Indian Navy support directorate, the facility can be applied to current and future aircraft platforms. The CARES team was recently awarded in February 2012 a major upgrade program to the CARES facility from the Indian Ministry of Defence, valued at €25M. The contract includes knowledge transfer packages that will train Indian Navy personnel for activities related to avionics repair techniques (Including deep level) and test equipment technologies. Overall, CARES will build lasting partnerships in India as part of Leonardo long term strategy in the country.

Emphasis on the knowledge transfer aspects and open architecture enables the Indian Navy to not just repair Sea Harrier and Sea King equipment but also provide the capability to independently design repair solutions for any Avionic / Electrical equipment for any platform.
