As a military aeronautical equipment 



manufacturer, could you talk about 

your mastery of weapon carriage and 

ejection equipment?

ALKAN, French historical military 

aeronautical OEM since 1923 is 

specialized in carriage and ejection 

equipment for any store (guided or non-

guided ammunition, Fuel Tank, POD) on 

any type of aircraft.

Thanks to their expertise in the 

aeronautical field, their high level of 

quality (certified EN 9100) and innovation 

by using the latest technologies, ALKAN 

is the genuine partner of all the project 

leaders as well as aircraft manufacturers, 

such as Dassault Aviation, Thales, MBDA, 

Snecma, BAe Systems, Embraer, Alenia, 

Bell, Sikorsky, Eurocopter, SAAB, etc.

ALKAN have the mastery of weapon 

carriage and ejection equipment for 

military aircraft, and are specialized in 

Store Management Systems and also 

ground servicing and support activity.

With their international recognition, 

ALKAN equipment are in operation in 

more than 80 countries and are qualified 

on more than 60 different aircraft 

both military and civilian like Dassault 

M2000, Rafale, Gripen, Black Hawk, Tiger, 

Beechcraft AT6-C, Embraer Tucano/

Super Tucano, Cessna Scorpion or Us 

Black Hawk helicopters, Sikorsky S70i,  

etc. 

In INDIA, ALKAN has established a 



partnership with the most important 

aeronautical actors:

for combat A/C (MIRAGE 2000) 



operated by IAF: supply of pylons, 

and associated ground support 

equipment,

for Helicopter (ALH): ALKAN has 



been selected by HAL for the 

supply of release unit. ALKAN is 

involved in Transfer Of Technology.

You have signed a contract with HAL 

for the ALH WSI programme. What’s 

the update and what are the new 

initiatives with HAL?

ALKAN release unit type 2037 has 

been selected by HAL for the ALH-WSI 

and all future armed helicopters being 

manufactured and designed by HAL. 

A Transfer of Technology agreement 

has been signed to enable HAL to 

locally manufacture and overhaul the 

2037 Release Unit. A couple of years 

after, ALKAN and HAL partnership is 

still running on and looking forward 

to extend their cooperation in order to 

develop and transfer new competencies 

and capabilities for coming needs on 

LCA and MMRCA aircraft.

What are the new business 

opportunities you are seeing in the 

Indian marketplace?

Beside ALKAN- HAL joint-cooperation 

on Indian made aircraft, ALKAN and 

their Indian partner are working on a 

MRO program on Mirage 2000 carriage 

systems. The goal is to give the old 

ejection racks a new potential of 20 

years. Indeed, after the some time the 

aircraft as well as the ejection racks 

require some Mid-Life Upgrade. 

ALKAN expertise in design of light and 

heavy ejection racks, ALKAN innovation 

in terms of weight and easy operation 

may largely benefit to Unmanned 

Combat Aircraft and light combat 

aircraft like Pilatus and HTT-40. AERO 

INDIA is the opportunity to showcase 

our latest ejection racks.



Could you throw some light on your 

Ejector Release Unit?

ALKAN is the world leader in Ejection 

Systems for any store and onboard any 

aircraft. ALKAN has brought innovation 

along the years to answer the users, 

the operators on the battle-field. 

Thanks to great partnership and a large 

experience on multi-platform, ALKAN 

propose now ejections systems which 

look the same but which are much 

more technologic. Indeed, thanks to 

ALKAN newest ejectors, installation, 

operation and maintenance are so 

quick and easy that our system has 

been chosen recently on the best 

fighters like MMRCA, F-15.



What are the new initiatives of the 

company?

For future programs, ALKAN proposes the 

latest available weapon ejection technology: 

the Cold Gas System. As of today, existing 

weapon ejection power supply is generated 

by the controlled explosion of two 

pyrotechnic cartridges. This combat proven 

solution had been developed in the 50’s 

during Vietnam War, but imposes a too 

heavy maintenance effort as well as the safe 

handling of pyrotechnic components. 

The ALKAN cold gas newly developed 

concept is based on the use of a 

rechargeable Nitrogen-inert -gas 

cylinder to replace these pyrotechnic 

components. This concept provides a 

maintenance free system with better 

ejection performances and low reaction 

on aircraft structure. This concept is now 

in operational use and combat proven on 

A/C as RAFALE and GRIPEN.
