Hopefully there is a strategy.


Yes, and it has been there for ages. DRDO transferred MRE technology to MTR in 2000 according to wiki. A DRDO tech focus article from 2011 lists technologies developed for food processing and discusses MREs.

Yes! It still exists. It is called Semi Conductor Limited

Welcome to the world of Bakeys Edible Cutlery



Now you can USE your cutlery and EAT it too


Did you ever think you can eat up your spoons too???
Well, it is now a reality. We make these to provide an effective alternative to plastic disposable cutlery

About Edible Cutlery

We make our cutlery with dough made from a mixture of sorghum, rice and wheat flours, kneaded with hot water. The products are baked in moulds.

We started with spoons and would be adding forks, soup spoons, dessert spoons, yogurt spoons and then we would start making the crockery as well. These would include small bowls, cups, plates and even salad bowls.

They used to make the 6502 microprocessor around the time of the fire. As per their website, they are at 180nm CMOS technology and make pretty routine stuff. Probably they also build some classified imagers, parts which aren't commercially available, for our satellites, at least that would be my hope.

Supposedly the fire occurred under suspicious circumstances.
Speculation was that it was an effort to sabotage the plant and the country's fledgling IC industry.
Although 180nm sounds like pretty ancient technology...

I can't imagine eating those energy bars as a meal all day long.

Everything else looked to be civilian grade rather than military grade MRE rations.

Only the chapatis looked to be real MRE.

Where's the full MRE meal kit - as in lunch or dinner?

Saurav Jha @SJha1618

Thanks to the India Meteorological Department's new Pratyush supercomputer, India has become the only country in the world to have an Ensemble Prediction System (EPS) that is running weather models at 12-km resolution, which is better than what anybody else has at the moment.

Govt. plans ‘ISRO-like’ ocean mission


Looking to emulate the success of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in designing and launching satellites, the Centre has drawn up a five-year, ₹8,000 crore plan to explore the deep recesses of the ocean.

The Union Earth Sciences Ministry — tasked with coordinating the exercise — unveiled a blueprint of the ‘Deep Ocean Mission (DOM)’ on Friday.

Among the key deliverables to achieve these goals are an offshore desalination plant that will work with tidal energy, and developing a submersible vehicle that can go to a depth of at least 6,000 metres with three people on board.

“The mission proposes to explore the deep ocean similar to the space exploration started by ISRO about 35 years ago,” the report notes.
India’s share

India has been allotted a site of 75,000 square kilometres in the Central Indian Ocean Basin (CIOB) by the UN International Sea Bed Authority for exploitation of polymetallic nodules (PMN). These are rocks scattered on the seabed containing iron, manganese, nickel and cobalt. “It is envisaged that 10% of recovery of that large reserve can meet the energy requirement of India for the next 100 years. It has been estimated that 380 million metric tonnes of polymetallic nodules are available at the bottom of the seas in the Central Indian Ocean,” the report adds. India’s Exclusive Economic Zone spreads over 2.2 million square kilometres and in the deep sea, lies “unexplored and unutilised.”

Madhavan Rajeevan, Secretary, Earth Sciences Ministry, said he had outlined his plans to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

The focus will be on technologies for deep-sea mining, underwater vehicles, underwater robotics and ocean climate change advisory services, among other aspects.

Neshant, do you even google a bit before you post your disparaging comments ?

from what I can find, civilian tech seems to have caught up via tech infusion from DRDO and the forces might be procuring those directly.

Which "disparaging comments" are you referring to.

You'd notice the discussion from the thread you posted was from 2007 so it's not info that one comes across often.

I have seen a Bobcat with similar tires. Looks cool and is puncture resistant.
The tires seem to be made from ABS plastic.

Would be great in the Himalayas where tire repair would be time consuming.
