    Appreciable innovation by young Army officers | Home | www.narendramodi.in

    PM Shri Narendra Modi lauded the young innovators of the Army and shared details of their innovations.

    Innovators
    IC-71813A CaptNitish Kumar Singh was commissioned on 12 Dec 2009. He is a B.Sc Graduate and is pursuing B Tech Course from Mil College of Electronics and Mechanical Engineering. He is a certified ethical hacker from EC-Council (USA). He is associated with the field of robotics since the last two years. He has served in J & K Sector. The officer has developed Unmanned Ground Logistics Delivery System.

    Innovations
    Unmmanned Ground Logistics Delivery System: A need was felt to develop a robot which could provide logistics delivery capability during operations, thereby minimizing risk to life. The multi terrain robot s operated through voice command given by the user wirelessly, which is capable of detecting obstacles in its way using an ultrasonic sensor, sending its own position using GPS and also carries out surveillance using live video feed. This system makes use of Zigbee technology.

    JC-758388N Nb/Sub M/Tech Girish Chandra Joshi was enrolled in Army in 1987. He has completed his education till intermediate level. He has obtained invaluable experience by serving in all the Sectors of Indian Army. The JCO is actively involved in developing Indigenized Sub-systems for Long Range Reconnaissance and Observation System.

    Innovations
    Indigenised Sub Systems for Long Range Reconnaissance and Observation System (LORROS): LORROS is a sensor system which provides long-range day-time and night-time surveillance. It has been found to be very effective in countering infiltration. A number of LORROS were getting out of action due to non-availability of Protocol Converter Card being ex-import and having long lead time. These cards were indigenously developed by Army Technology Centre at a fraction of the cost resulting in increased availability of LORROS to the field formations.

    IC 78725M Lt AshwinNagpal is B Tech (Electronics) and was commissioned on 14 Dec 2014. During his training at Cadet Training Wing (CTW), he has been awarded Gold Medal for standing first in overall merit. He was awarded Tech Silver Medal from Honorable Defence Minister for topping amongst all three CTWs. His project in robotics was awarded best project in Electronics Engg stream by JawaharLal Nehru University. The officer has developed Remotely Controlled Reconnaissance Vehicle.

    Innovations
    Remotely Controlled Reconnaissance Vehicle: In order to avoid risk to human life in the Counter Insurgency environment, a need was felt to fabricate a remotely operated vehicle for carrying out reconnaissance of the desired area of operation. It is controlled through the movement of the hand of the operation, thereby providing greater flexibility in operation of the vehicle. Live feed of the camera is transmitted back to the surveillance station and is displayed on screen.

    At last research / innovation is out of the hands of lazy .arm chair, highly over valued so called scientists & into the capable hands of the users.

    I am proud it has happened,when I am alive to applaud their achievements.

    may their fraternity increase & swell.

    Good development.

    Hopefully some of them if not all undergo improvement, trails and induction into the ground.

    It makes us proud, But sad thing is none of these or before these ever get into trials leave alone inducting them ..

    The reason is same as for other Indian design and made systems, Lobbies always had deep influence within our community and some share also goes to the dull minded people with high ego within the ranks ..

    Great work done.

    They must have been tried by users and passed fit.

    A big sabash to them is what one can say and maybe a SM or VSM for innovative work.



    @Kunal,

    You overdo this 'lobby' issue too much.

    If there were such powerful lobbies, then these innovations would not have seen the light of day or mention by the PM.

    Are you aware the Indian made and Army devised sensor and surveillance equipment is used on the LC?

    If lobbies were so powerful then we would have imported them and not have Indian made/ designed LC equipment.

    We have talent in our scientist pool but unfortunately in all research organisations, there is total lethargy and the sole desire to hang on to a safe Govt job with pension.

    Sir, I agree what you said but how much these life saving innovation get out of local units ?, In the end the mass of similar equipment are purchased from outside even their are Indian pvt companies make such system under Army observation but when ready they are even too hard to see in practice ..

    Sir, DRDO or HAL system are indeed infected with many issues, Sorting them out is the solution as their are no other system can replace them ..

    Hopefully those days are over. For the first time a PM has directly taken interest and promoting indigenous innovation and products.

    Times they are a-changin... :violin:



    Come gather 'round people
    Wherever you roam
    And admit that the waters
    Around you have grown
    And accept it that soon
    You'll be drenched to the bone.
    If your time to you
    Is worth savin'
    Then you better start swimmin'
    Or you'll sink like a stone
    For the times they are a-changin'.

    Come writers and critics
    Who prophesize with your pen
    And keep your eyes wide
    The chance won't come again
    And don't speak too soon
    For the wheel's still in spin
    And there's no tellin' who
    That it's namin'.
    For the loser now
    Will be later to win
    For the times they are a-changin'.

    Come senators, congressmen
    Please heed the call
    Don't stand in the doorway
    Don't block up the hall
    For he that gets hurt
    Will be he who has stalled
    There's a battle outside
    And it is ragin'.
    It'll soon shake your windows
    And rattle your walls
    For the times they are a-changin'.

    Come mothers and fathers
    Throughout the land
    And don't criticize
    What you can't understand
    Your sons and your daughters
    Are beyond your command
    Your old road is
    Rapidly agin'.
    Please get out of the new one
    If you can't lend your hand
    For the times they are a-changin'.

    The line it is drawn
    The curse it is cast
    The slow one now
    Will later be fast
    As the present now
    Will later be past
    Your old road is
    Rapidly fadin'.
    And the first one now
    Will later be last
    For the times they are a-changin'.
