DRDO develops multiple products to help Indian Army battle extreme cold in deployment against China
NEW DELHI: With over 50,000 Indian troops deployed in Eastern Ladakh to fight against China, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed multiple products such the Him-Taapak heating devices and snow melters to help the soldiers in extremely low temperatures.
The Him Tapak space heating device (Bukhari) has been developed for the Indian Army deployed in Eastern Ladakh, Siachen and high altitude areas and it has placed an order of more than Rs 420 crores for these appliances, DRDO's Defence Institute for Physiology and Allied Sciences Director Dr Rajeev Varshney told ANI here.
印度国防研究与发展组织国防生理研究所和联合科学研究所主任Rajeev Varshney博士告诉ANI，已经为部署在拉达克东部、锡亚钦和高海拔地区的印度军队开发了Him Tapak空间加热设备(Bukhari)，并已下了价值超过42亿卢比的订单。
He said device will ensure that there are no deaths of jawans due to backblast and carbon monode poisoning.
DIPAS, which conducts physiological and biomedical research to improve human performance in extreme and wartime environment has also developed 'Alocal cream' that helps in preventing frostbite chilblains and other cold injuries to soldiers deployed in extremely cold areas.
It has also developed a 'fleble water bottle' and 'Solar Snow Melter' to address the issue of drinking water problems in freezing temperatures.
Varshney said the 'fleble water bottle' developed by DIPAS can withstand temperature from minus 50 to 100 degree and the water inside the bottle won't freeze due to cold, if it is stored in liquid form.
DRDO has always been a classy organisation having produced some classy products earlier too.. But got too stagnated in between. Nice to see it get going and come up with some classy products ....Given the resources and incentives, it can go wonders...KUDOS to it !!!!
Bravo nice to read atmanirbharta in defense sector. well done
I hope they get sufficient number of gadgets. Our armed forces must be modernized on war footing.
In the last six years DRDR has transformed itself into a very pro active organization with continuous innovation and upgradation from what was a sleepy and lethargic organization prior to past six years.
After ISRO, Indian Railways, now DRDO is shining as well. This is what happens when you have the right leadership. Jai Hind
Wonderful. modi hai to mumkin hai. Jai Hind
feel proud you 'DRDO', well done
KUDOS TO DRDO - KEEP THE SPIRIT HIGH OF THE JAVANs AND YOURSELF TOO - THANKS A LOT...
Sir..i am unable to understand..why the secrets of Indian army are disclose in the newspapers..is any country disclose in their media..
Proud of u Modi ji for creating DRDO like institution
Every possible help should be provided to our brave jawans.
The DRDO and ISRO are the CROWN JEWEL OF THE COUNTRY, WHILE HAL IS A GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT.
Stupid paper leaking all defense details.
Excellent job done by them. Never has the army been shown such consideration. Theirs was a forgotten memory.
India is the new Japan!
RSSAnd BJP will take credit for this and blame Nehru!
