Hyderabad: India now has a highly reliable technology-based aerospace mechanism.
The achievement of Chandrayaan, Mangalyaan mission and now scientists working towards the Gaganyaan mission, is evidence that the country is at par with other nations in terms of tech-based aerospace devices, Dr Tessy Thomas, Director General, Aero, the Advances and Challenges in Aerospace and Defence related mechanisms, said.
Emphasising on the Advances and Challenges in Aerospace and Defence related mechanisms, the Director General said, “In space technology, a lot of aerospace devices are being developed with a highly reliable system. For instance, 104 missiles were launched from a single DSLV; these projects give impetus and technological advancement to aerospace mechanism and in the field of missile application. India now has many single shot devices, developed through aerospace mechanism, that have proved to be highly reliable.”
Technology-based aerospace mechanism has been used in recovery systems in defence based aircraft and Cro Capsule. The devices proved highly reliable in Cro Capsule, which is a manmade machine used to abort an operation. For example, when a missile is about to be launched and a condition arises in which it needs to be aborted, this device will help release a parachute which will help retrieve and save the Cro Capsule.
The 104 nano-satellites launched from a single DSLV created a record and received international recognition.
The National Conference and Exhibition on Aerospace and Defence Related Mechanisms (ARMS-2018) was organized by the Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Missile Complex and ISRO in the city.
Dr S. Somnath, Director, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC), Isro emphasised the objectives and the importance of the Indian National Society for Aerospace and Related Mechanisms.
The exhibition highlighted advances in the design and development, fabrication, testing; analysis, as well as futuristic concepts of aerospace and defence related mechanisms....
