Microwave Tube Research and Development Centre (MTRDC) is focusing on design and development of various microwave tubes, electronic power conditioners, microwave power modules and transmitters for communication, Radar and Electronic Warfare (EW) systems and other applications. To strive for indigenous development and facilitate production of state-of-art microwave tubes, microwave power modules, high microwave sources, cathodes and electronic power conditioners in synergy with research, academic institutions and industry.
Combat Vehicles Research and Development Establishment (CVRDE) Filter development centre has pioneered in the Design and Development of Hydraulic and Lubrication filters for Aircraft systems, MBT-Arjun and Naval systems. Design, develop and lead to production tracked armament vehicles and specialist vehicles to meet the needs of the service. Build technological capabilities in critical areas including test and evaluation of Combat system.
This MPM is suitable for applications in Electronics Warfare, Radars system and as a compact power amplifier for laboratory use etc. Microwave Tube Research & Development Centre (MTRDC) has initially developed a few prototypes to evaluate the performance. These prototypes have undergone complete electrical, RF and environment tests sucessfully.Technology of MPM has been transferred and a limited series production has been launched at BEL.
DRDO undertakes projects in four different categories. They are Mission Mode, Technology Demonstration, Science and Technology and Infrastructure Development.ST projects are newly discovered or established scientific facts/principles are applied to drive technological advantage in the area of interest through ST projects. TD projects are undertaken to convert the technological feasibility into useable entities like sensors, components, devices, modules, etc.
The Organisation has achieved what it has due to quality, commitment, perseverance, knowledge and skills of its personnel. The Defence Research and Development Organisation has a dynamic approach for the man power development. Keeping manpower requirements of our futuristic and contemporary programmes and attrition of its manpower in view, the organisation plans recruitment. The DRDO has organised its human resources in three cadres viz. Defence Research & Development Service (DRDS), Defence Research Technical Cadre (DRTC) and Admin & Allied Cadre.
DRDO attracted attention of the parliamentarians throughout the year. Member of Parliament from both houses raised questions on subject matters such as BrahMos missile, Kaveri engine, Low Intensity Conflict (LIC), Light Combat Aircraft (LCA), Missile Development programmes, Performance of DRDO, Self-reliance in Defence R&D , Exodus of Scientists from DRDO and Main Battle Tank (MBT) Arjun.
Formulation of overall DRDO budget based on the assessment made from the analysis of demands received from labs/estts.Allocation and Priority based enhancement of allocations (where necessary) of funds to labs/estts/programmes/high value projects. Formulation of Revised Budget Estimates (RE) based on review of expenditure status, additional demands against existing and new schemes and projection to MOD (Fin) alongwith the Forecast Budget Estimates (FBE) for the next Financial Year.
DRDO exhibited its capability by developing the state-of-the-art electronic systems, which include Communication, Command and Control Systems, Radars, Electronic Warfare and Electro-optical systems. There is also Significant achievement of technology development in the areas of Advanced Computing, Image Processing, Microwave Tubes, Solid-state Materials, Devices and Lasers. Over the years DRDO has developed many outstanding technologies and product.
I need data about the Defence Procurement Plan in Stainless steel & Aluminium Products. i.e.: Utensils, Cooking Utensils, Serving Utensils and other.
