Secretary DD R&D and Chairman DRDO Dr G Satheesh Reddy, handed over three products developed by MED & CoS Cluster to the user laboratories at an event held at DRDO Bhawan, New Delhi today as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations and iconic week of the Ministry of Defence. He also handed over four Transfer of Technology (ToT) agreements to public and private sector companies.
Founded in 1961, SSPL has completed 60 years and is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee Year. ‘Yatra’, the Compendium, traces historical journey of the laboratory and includes memoirs from several retired scientists. The compendium has been compiled in association with IDST.
The GaN process development kit has been released for MMIC designers to enable them to design indigenous GaN MMICs for various frequencies upto X-band. The devices can be manufactured at GAETEC.
Secretary DD R&D handed over High-g MEMS Switch, UHF 1kW High Power Amplifier and X band Power Amplifier to user laboratories. He also handed over SSPL developed technology of
0.5W Stirling Cryocooler for Integrated Detector Dewar Cooler Assembly (IDDCA) to Bharat Electronics Limited.
Technology document of 10W laser diode chip fabrication technology and X-band GaN HEMT MMIC was handed over to GAETEC. Technology document for HgCdTe based DDCA was handed over to STAR-C.
The technology of Acoustic Emission (AE) Sensors, AE Data Acquisition & Analysis System was handed over to industry. The sensors and the system will be used for site specific snow avalanche monitoring/prediction.
Secretary, DD R&D handed over CAIR developed INDIGIS, a Geographical Information System to industry. Secure mobile handset to facilitate secure transmission of voice and instant messaging over 4G cellular networks for usage in sensitive environment was launched.
Reliable and secure key transfer Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) at a distance over 100 km using commercial telecom optical fiber link was announced.
On this occasion, SAG, Delhi issued certificates of assurance for IT products, namely Data Diode to BEL and software product of CAIR. Data Diode is a device for enforcing one-way traffic to the internet from internal network. The improved bandwidth internal network and various IT portals were launched during the event.
The event was attended by various cluster & corporate DGs, Directors, senior scientists from various DRDO laboratories, former DRDO Directors and industry representatives.
