PIB Press Release, 26 January, 2010

The Minister of State for Defence Shri MM Pallam Raju has called upon defence scientists to come out of their cocoons. Addressing an MoU Signing Ceremony under the DRDO-FICCI Accelerated Technology Assessment and Commercialization (ATAC) Programme here today, Shri Pallam Raju asked the private industry to become motivational tools for the scientists. Some of the technologies developed by the DRDO’s 50 laboratories spread across the country have immense applications in industry and everyday life and the ATAC programme has successfully harnessed the spin-offs of defence technology, he added.

Dr V K Saraswat, Scientific Advisor to Defence Minister and Director General (Defence R&D) said the DRDO has unveiled a robust programme of collaborating with the Industry, both PSUs and Private, and Academies. The Academicians will help in Innovation and the Industry in Delivery while the DRDO would serve as their interface, he added. Over 100 scientists from as many as 26 DRDO laboratories have been exposed with the Industry under the two-year-old ATAC programme, said Dr. Prahlada, Chief Controller R&D (Services Interaction), DRDO. In his opening remarks, Dr. Amit Mitra, Secretary General, FICCI said 45 technologies including Explosive Detection Kit, HAPO Chamber, Electrochromic Glass, RO-based Mobile Water Purification System and DEPA Multi-Insect Repellant Cream have already been identified for commercial exploitation through the ATAC process.
