    DRDO chief Vijay Kumar Saraswat, who is also
    the scientific advisor to the Union government’s
    ministry of defence, said future warfare would be
    on a remote level, without contact and minus
    conventional weapons. He underlined the need to
    develop systems like high-power lasers and
    ‘guided’ energy weapons.
    Dr Vijay Kumar Saraswat was conferred a
    doctorate in Science by the KL University during
    its second convocation in Vaddes-waram village
    of Guntur district on Monday.
    Speaking on the occasion he said, the defence
    scientists had made great strides in the
    development of Micro electro mechanical
    systems-based censor technologies, smart
    materials, Network Centric Warfare, Nano-
    materials/nano composites, nano fuels and nano
    Dr Saraswat said that another incredible
    achievement of DRDO was the indigenously
    developed light combat aircraft Tejas.
    Describing the development of the first nuclear
    submarine, INS Arihant, as an engineering
    ‘marvel’, he pointed out that with its launch, India
    had joined the exclusive club of similar six
    The DRDO scientists are now working for the
    development of scramjet-propelled aircraft
    required for hypersonic flight, which could reach
    New York from Delhi in an hour.
    He said “Demand for skilled engineers and
    technologists will increase in the coming years in
    the country, with science and technology more
    actively pursued.” He suggested that the country
    introduce schemes which would ensure more
    fluid collaborations between scientists,
    technologists and industry, academic institutions
    and research and development laboratories.
    Addressing the university students and faculty,
    he said the mission of the DRDO is to design and
    develop state-of-the-art defence systems and technologies required for the country.
