On the night of 3rd January 2015 when 12000 scientists participated Science Congress in Mumbai which inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and who encouraged the scientific community to concentrate on research which have deemed benefit in make in India program.
Same day in Dehradun inside DRDO, DEAL Lab the important informations, equipments and the complete EMI/EMC test facility was gutted in to fire. The time was chosen very carefully as the In-Charge of EMI/EMC facility was retired on 31st and 1st & 2nd activity was closed.
This EMI/EMC facility w established in 1983 and it has tested the components, sub systems of various missiles, LCA, Communication equipments and many more non communication devices developed by DRDO as well as private companies working for defence supplies.
The complete data of EMI/EMC testing obtained were analyzed and further improvements were accorded in to system. These test data were a national asset.
DEAL had developed CNR whose five sets of data were kept along with data of Agni, Prithivi, Akash & LCA. Based on the EMI/EMC test output of electronic sub system/components of LCA at DEAL, the schedule of integrated testing of LCA was delayed by one year; such is the authenticity of measured data of EMI/EMC lab DEAL.
This statement is recommended in national gazette that the EMI/EMC facility at DEAL & their honesty is second to none.
DEAL in its pursuits to develop ultra wide band radio after frequency hopping took 1oo corer project in the name of Software Defined Radio (SDR)
Sh R C Agarwal the Director, DEAL is himself the program director and so far has got two successive service extensions in the name of SDR.SDR three variant were tested for EMI/EMC but none of them get cleared and declare the system unfit.
Sh Agarwal is disturbed with these EMI/EMC failure data of SDR lying in EMI/EMC Lab. He is retiring on June 2015 since PMO has stopped service extension business. Sh Agarwal very well knows that these raw data should speak a volume about his incompetence. Any ways, now the important prestigious EMI/EMC Lab of DRDO was gutted in to fire during Saturday/Sunday.
Dr Kalam then SA to RM had appreciated EMI/EMC for committed work of NARAD Terminal and based on that EMP hardening satcom terminal project was given to DEAL.
