Someone correct me if I am wrong but it looks like "CATIA V5 R19", "Hypermesh" and "PATRAN-NASTRAN" seem to be some type of specialized software packages.
CATIA - CAD s/w used for 3D modelling here I suppose. As such its very extensive package and has many features spanning entire Product Life Cycle Management including support for manufacturing.
Hypermesh - Meshing s/w. Used for meshing the 3d model made above for structural analysis. Basically break the entire component in millions of tiny small cubes or tetrahedrons.
Patran-Nastran - Finite Element Solver. Solve Solid Mechanics governing equation on each of above tiny elements to get Stress-strain relationship, deformation for given load and so on. Nastran is made by NASA long time back (perhaps 1st of its kind) and its used by almost everyone now.
If they wanted 6 people as individuals they would have literally thousands flocking outside ADA. But they want some contractor company to provide them those 6 people as one package. There lies the rub.

Prasannasimha, those software packages are used in industries outside of Aerospace as weii.
Still ask for your friend to give it a try. Last time for Ghatak ADA had extended the tender date.
