SARAS PT1N (14 seater)
Institute: CSIR-NAL | Category: Aerospace
SARAS PT1N (14 seater) designed and developed by CSIR-NAL, a frontline aerospace research laboratory, has successfully made its maiden flight on 24.01.2018. The flight was commanded by Wg Cdr U P Singh, Gp Capt R V Panicker and Gp Capt K P Bhat from lAF-Aircraft and Systems Testing Establishment (ASTE). The aircraft took off at about 11 AM from HAL airport and flew for about 40 minutes at the maximum height of 8500 ft at the speed of 145 knots. The chase aircraft (KIRAN) was piloted by Gp Capt Badrish and telemetry was commanded by Gp Capt Naraynen, Wg Cdr Pandey and Wg Cdr R Sridhar (Retd). All the system parameters are found normal. It was a text book flight. CSIR-NAL sources said that this was the culmination of the efforts of team CSIR-NAL, IAF-ASTE, CEMILAC, HAL and DGAQA. The primary objective is to evaluate the system performance in about 20 flights and the data collected from this shall be used to freeze the design of production version aircraft. The production version aircraft will be of 19 seat capacity and will undergo civil / military certification. The flight was monitored by Shri Jitendra J Jadhav, Director, CSIR-NAL, Air Marshal Upkarjit Singh, Director, IAF-PMT & Chairman, FRRB, Shri Venkatesh -Director-HAL, Air Vice Marshal Sandeep Singh, Commandant, ASTE, Shri P Jayapal, Chief Executive CEMILAC and Shri V L Raja, ADG-AQA.
Safe disposal of Municipal Solid Waste(MSW)
Institute: CSIR-CMERI | Category: Waste management
In order to manage waste a in a scientific manner, a functional waste management system has been designed and developed by CSIR-CMERI-Municipal Solid Waste(MSW) disposal unit. It consists of few stages - Mechanized Segregation, Plasma Gasification, Pyrolysis, Bio-methanation and utilization of construction waste. The major functional elements in the solid waste management system are waste handling, sorting, storage and processing at the source. Plastic waste is handled by the process of Plasma Gasification and Pyrolysis. The potential of kitchen wastes and organic wastes are used as substrates for biogas production. A densified form of agricultural remains that have certain calorific value and thermal usefulness are compacted to form Briquettes, which are slowly becoming popular as sources of fuel for boilers in semi-rural India. The construction debris is also used for construction of roads.
Broad Spectrum Confocal Microscope: World Class ?Made in India? High-end Product based on Supercontinuum Light Source
Institute: CSIR-CGCRI | Category: Engineering, Structures & Design
Under the CSIR-NMITLI Programme, CSIR has indigenously designed and developed a complex Broadband Confocal Microscope in partnership with M/s Vinvish Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Thiruvananthapuram and CSIR-CGCRI, Kolkata. The confocal microscope uses a Supercontinuum light generating source based on a patented photonic crystal fiber (PCF) technology developed by CSIR-CGCRI. Further, the system has been integrated together as a plug and play system, into the Broadband Confocal Microscope developed by the collaborating partners. This is the first of its kind Reflective Confocal Microscope based on its own supercontinuum light generating source in the world.
Drishti Transmissometer for Airport Runway Visibility
Institute: CSIR-NAL | Category: Aerospace
It is a fast acting accurate instrument that automatically measures and reports the runway visual range and the meteorological optical range. It facilitates automated meteorological of runway visibility range RVR (0-3 km) and meteorological optical range MOR (0-10 km). The Model II version of DRISHTI dispenses with the conventional chopper technology and incorporates electronic modulation of the lamp intensity. It is installed at different airports. This has led to creation of indigenous capacity in the area of Aerospace. NAL
