IISc Indian Navy collaborative research programme

In order to increase self-reliance efforts, the Indian Navy signed an agreement with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore for a collaborative research programme in Aviation on 29 July 2022. The self-reliance efforts are in line with achieving the goal of “Atmanirbhar Bharat.” The research work will come under the Aerospace-Aeronautical Engineering DOMAIN.

The various specializations where the Research and Development work will go on are:

  1. Steel Technology
  2. Systems and Controls
  3. Propulsion and Propulsion Systems
  4. Instrumentation and Sensors
  5. Metallurgy and Material Sciences
  6. Environmental Science and Engineering
  7. Corrosion Science
  8. Energy Science and Engineering
  9. Industrial Engineering and Operational Research
  10. Nanotechnology and MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems)
  11. Data Analytics
  12. Machine Learning
  13. Artificial Intelligence
  14. Management (Technical and Logistics)

During the research work, the officers of the Indian Navy will be in regular contact with the faculty members of IISc Bangalore.
