Squadron Leader Suraj Nair (32105) is on posted strength of a Mi-17 V5 Helicopter Unit.
New Delhi. On 3 April 2021, San Ldr Nair volunteered to take part in a daring Casualty Evacuation mission in the vicinity to an ambush site in a known Naxalite infested area. He provided priceless inputs to the higher authorities at the control centre for effective planning and successful accomplishment of the mission. He planned the preparation and launch of the helicopters in a short notice; serving as an asset to his mission leader. After recce of the ambush site, his inputs were instrumental in effective execution of the dynamic mission.
The mission involved high risk due to the unfamiliar hostile area with Naxalites operating in proximity to the hills. During the initial recce, he manoeuvred his helicopter clear of the mission leader, simultaneously looking for disposition of own and hostile forces and locating a suitable spot for extraction. During the Cas Evac, displaying good situational awareness, he effectively guided the third helicopter towards his leader. His immaculate handling of the aircraft proved instrumental in safely recovering mortal remains from the restricted landing site with an uneven surface which was surrounded by tall trees. His deft Crew Resource Management ensured safe accomplishment of the task in a hostile area.
In the subsequent missions for support of these operations, he recovered eight mortal remains from the ambush site. He was also involved in the insertion of 120 commandos for augmenting operations. With exceptional commitment to the assigned task, presence of mind and optimum utilisation of resources at hand, he was able to effect safe and expeditious conduct of missions in the vicinity of volatile combat site.
For his act of exceptional courage and disregard to personal safety in a very hostile combat zone, Sqn Ldr Suraj Nair is conferred with the award of Vayu Sena Medal (Gallantry).
We are happy to announce that our organisation is now a Network Institute with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) from 16th Nov 2021, under the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS). Live online courses will be conducted by elite scientists from ISRO through the EDUSAT Programme initiative on our Campus. Students and faculty can now register in ISRO certified E-learning courses, which will help them to enhance their skills for their professional careers in remote sensing, geospatial, and space technology applications using online simulated learning content. Dr. Parmeshwar Birajadar, from Electronics Engineering Department, is the coordinator for IIRS-ISRO Outreach Programme.

Title of Project - "Development of Methodology for Indian Evaluated Nuclear Data Library for applications in S & T"
Grant amount - Rs. 17,81,276 /=
Issuing Authority - Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences, Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India
Faculty Involved - Dr. J. M. Nair (Principal Investigator) and Mrs. Sangeetha Prasanna Ram (Co-Principal Investigator)
Few lines of description about the Project - Nuclear data evaluation is the result of an artful combination of experimental data/ information, theoretical insight & model predictions, with a stress on how the measured data are analysed through statistical techniques and particularly important role of systematic experimental errors. Proper account for these uncertainties can dramatically alter the evaluated covariance matrices that are part of the evaluated libraries. In this project it is planned to develop a nuclear data evaluation method for cross section data using modern techniques.
