Dear Dr Saraswat Ji Good Morning
The God Father culture has not paid to the DRDO while working of projects of national importance.
When after lot of efforts “EMP Hardening of SATCOM Terminal” was sanctioned to DEAL, Dehradun after completion of project you ( Dr Saraswat then Director RCI in 1999) personally visited to witness the success of project. I was there along with the project team and demonstrated you the indeginiously developed EMP Hardened 32 pin Connector (KALI) which was capable to consume/absorb 12.5 K Amp current surge.
You appreciated and told to Dr A S Bains then Director, DEAL to go for production of this connector under CODE program of DRDO. Dr. Kalam even said apply for patent.
The God Father culture killed our enthusiasm as Dr A S Bains the blue eyed boy of Dr Atre did not allow any further work on EMP Phase-II and the infra structure developed for EMP work the part of DRDO’s huge 81000 Corers is still lying idle and waiting for as usual condemnation.
In my interview with Dr. Atre in SA ‘s room at south block on 12.30 Hrs 10th April 200, he was blunt while discussing the issue of nuclear conflict and protection from EMP a byproduct of nuclear burst. Please look the following:
I know with your hard work you have reached to this highest post of DRDO and busy with lot of national security issues but neither you can forget your visit in DEAL nor you can ignore at this stage the importance of EMP hardening.
I can simply request you to take initiative seriously and examine if at all DRDO can take a program on “Submarine Communication”.
India is surrounded by neighbors having nuclear arms and they have already made Indian ocean a base for their nuclear submarines.
