Prahlad added that the NAL was making a 70-seater regional transport aircraft, while the HAL was making a 100-seater aircraft for carrying troops.

This is a terrrific news if true. Does it mean that RTA project of NAL has been cleared or Prahlad wanted to say that NAl "wants" to make it rather than "was making" the 70 seater aircraft.

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: A. Subhananda Rao, Director, High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL), Pune, received the DRDO Technology Spin Off Award from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh recently for development of an ‘explosive detection kit’, capable of detecting and identifying ingredients used in blasts based on the traces left by the ingredients.

The kit costs Rs.2,000, as against an imported one costing Rs.6,000. HEMRL has prepared 2,000 kits and supplied them to various agencies at a cost of Rs.39 lakh, , resulting in enormous financial saving, according a press release issued here on Friday.

The kit is being used by police in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Jammu and Kashmir, AP, Assam and Tamil Nadu
The award, comprises a citation and a cash award of Rs.2 lakh, is given to a lab for developing a product that has a wide civil application.

B Rajagopalan, who is the Director of Research and Development Establishment (Engineers), R&DE (E) received the Defence Technology Spin award for Biometric Equipment, for having successfully designed life-saving biomedical equipment such as hyperbaric chamber, nitric oxide therapy system and high altitude breathing apparatus.

Joint Director R&DE(E) N B Vijayakumar, received the Agni award for designing main mobile hydropneumatic launcher prototype and power supply system.

Director of High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL), Subhananada Rao received the award for the development of the Explosive Detection Kit which is capable of detecting and identifying explosive ingredients used in a blast.

The kit which is currently being used by the police of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Jammu and Kashmir, Assam and Tamil Nadu as well as the Paramilitary and Armed Forces, can identify the explosive ingredients like RDX, TNT and HMX. HEMRL Associate Director, V L Narsimhan received the Agni Award for Excellence in Self Reliance for his contribution in the development of Triamino Trinitro Benzene(TATB), a thermally stable insensitive explosive.

More good news :oops:

HSTDV project is a entire DRDO's OWN Project, They have done Scramjet engine tests and done it succesfully.

Conditions under it was tested as follows I have excluded some details, It used Kerosene (Aviation grade fuel) for one test as well as one used Hydrogen, it uses a strut injector in tandem with Scramjet Combustor.

1) FLIGHT MACH NO : 6.5
2) ALTITUDE SIMULATED : 35KM
4) BURNER STAGNATION TEMPERATURE : 1500 K
7) TEST DURATION : 25 s


Two overcome some problems they designed after this Ramp-Cavity based Scramjet combustor and it has gone succesful tests as well.

Then they have finished designing Ramp Cavity based Scramjet combustor with Barbotage injection.

To conclude,

The experimental data generated on three configurations has provided a
useful insight for the configuration design of full-scale combustor for Hypersonic Technology Demonstrator Vehicle (HSTDV). The wall pressure distributions achieved during the experiment has been used for the validation of CFD codes like CFX & Fluent.


Should I paste pics and all? :twisted: :twisted:
