DRDO roadmap for Rs 600-crore Nano Foundry ready

India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has unveiled a road map to tap the immense potential of nanotechnology, including a Rs 600 crore ($133.3 million) nano foundry to be established in either Bangalore or Hyderabad, in partnership with the country’s premier academic institutions. W. Selvamurthi, DRDO’s head of life science research and development, tells Aviation Week that the proposed foundry would primarily focus on three areas: composites, sensors and electrodes. “Our labs in India are already working on nanocomposite coatings for anti-corrosive applications and also developing biosensors in aid of soldiers during a war,” Selvamurthi says. “The foundry will help the fabrications of products that are coming out of DRDO labs, in mass scale.”
