3 launches of Nirbhay planned this year: Dr Tamilmani

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is keen to integrate the private industries as a production-cum-development partners for all futuristic programmes. DRDO has already initiated feasibility studies on some of the futuristic projects, which are to be taken up in a phased manner. Speaking to Mathrubhumi’s #Talkathon interview series, Dr K Tamilmani, Director-General (Aero), DRDO, said the design and development of many of the high- technology equipment will be handed over to the private industries. He said the Aeronautical Test Range facility at Chitradurga (Karnataka) is in the process of realisation. To a query, Dr Tamilmani said the next launch of Nirbhay is scheduled in March/April 2016. Two more launches with different missions are planned during this year. Full interview, here: bit.ly/24t5l42
