Australia-based AICRAFT and Bengaluru-based aerospace firm Valdel Advanced Technologies signed an MoU on machine learning and artificial intelligence. The memorandum was inked in the presence of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on the concluding day of the Bengaluru Space Expo.
The memorandum aims to help Valdel in simulation and manufacturing using AICRAFT’s advanced AI capabilities. Valdel’s services will be used to test AICRAFT’s platforms and systems.
Sarah Kirlew, Consul General for South India, said, “We are pleased that Australian industry has continued to explore tangible space collaboration with India over the past few days.” The statement was delivered in tandem with six other memorandums signed by several Australian and Indian companies, two of which were based in Bengaluru alone.

The company will collaborate with Ananth Technologies on product development, testing, integration, and joint-space missions. Another Australian company, HEX20, will collaborate with Skyroot Aerospace, a Hyderabad-based company, to launch spacecraft and avionics.
