Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has decided to establish a Research Cell at Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad aiming to meet the future defence technological requirements of the country.
Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) will be establishing a research cell at Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IIT-H) to meet the future defence technological requirements of the country. The ‘DRDO – IIT-H Research Cell’ will undertake basic and applied research programs in identified technology areas and is being established as an extension of the DRDO Research and Innovation Centre (RIC), Chennai.
DRDO to Establish Research Cell at IIT Hyderabad:
The research cell is envisaged to become a ‘Centre of Excellence’ in conducting scientific and applied research in advanced technologies for defence. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish the research cell was signed by Director, Directorate of Futuristic Technology Management (DFTM), DRDO, K.K. Pathak, Director General, Missiles and Strategic Systems (MSS), DRDO M.S.R. Prasad and IITH Director Prof. B.S. Murty through a virtual event few day.
The MoU to establish the Research Cell was signed by KK Pathak, Director, Directorate of Futuristic Technology Management (DFTM), DRDO, Shri.
