|Dr S Christopher|
DRDO recently got a head finally after months of uncertainty. The government appointed Dr S Christopher, Distinguished Scientist as Secretary, Department of Defence Research and Development and DG DRDO. He assumed charge on May 29, 2015.
He was the Programme Director for the Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) programme and Director of Centre for Airborne Systems (CABS), Bangalore.
It's been over 2 weeks and we haven't yet heard anything from him officially. Sources tell Tarmak007 that he is taking time to settle down and has a long pile of files to be cleared, including manpower additions to various labs.
While he gets a grip of things, I am keen to hear from you all as to what needs to be done to revive the fortunes of DRDO. You may list a maximum of 10 points (number them) or a minimum of 5 points - as your wishlist to take DRDO forward.
Top five suggestions will each get a limited edition copy of guru Dr A P J Abdul Kalam's latest book 'Reignited.' The topmost suggestion out of the 5 will also get a copy of 'Inspiring Thoughts,' again penned by Dr Kalam.
A panel consisting of current, former scientists and senior journalists will pick the Top-5 winners.
Anyone making out of context comments will attract an automatic ban from the FB page. Comments that are not numbered, and lesser than the minimum 5 or maximum 10, won't be considered during evaluation process.
The best comments would be emailed to Dr Christopher in the first week of July. This exercise will conclude on June 30, 2015. You can leave your comments on Tarmak007's FB page. Link here: http://on.fb.me/1L9tEZA
I am sure DRDO will benefit from your suggestions.
All the best.
