Congratulations Narasimha Reddy
Mr S. Arun, Scientist, Centre for Societal Missions and Special Technologies division, CSIR -NAL has been awarded the Ph.D. degree for the thesis entitled "Design, development and testing of user friendly, light weight and inexpensive artificial limb for trans-femoral amputees", from Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Guwahati under the supervision of Dr. S. Kanagaraj, Associate professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering.
Ms. Meenu Srivastava, Senior Scientist, Surface Engineering Division, CSIR-NAL has provisionally been awarded PhD degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering for her research on “High Temperature Oxidation and Corrosion Performance of Electrodeposited NiCo-Aluminide and NiCo-CrAIY Composite Coatings”, from National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappali, under the supervision of Dr. J.N.Balaraju, Principal Scientist, Surface Engineering Division, CSIR-NAL.
Ms Archana Hebbar, Scientist in Flight Simulation Group, FMC division has received her 'Master of Science (Engg) by Research' degree from VTU, Belgaum. The thesis title was Effect of Mental workload on Pilot performance and Research Supervisor was Dr. Abhay A. Pashilkar.
Mr Hanumantha, Technical Assistant in Flight Mechanics and Control Division has successfully completed Bachelor of Engineering in mechanical engineering from University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering, Bangalore on 7th June 2016. He has received a gold medal from Bangalore university for securing highest score in mechanical engineering.
Mr Vijeesh T, Technical Officer, Flight Simulation Group of Flight Mechanics and Control Division has successfully completed Master of Technology in Computer Science from National Institute of Technology, Calicut, Kerala.
I have known Mr Shyam Chetty as my senior colleague, as Head of the Division and as Director, and believe you me, he has played all the roles to perfection. He was always available for discussions and advice, showing us the right direction and encouraging us to give our best. He used to say, "Each one of you is capable of doing much more. All you have to do is to walk that extra mile".
I was greatly impressed by his technical prowess. I have never seen anyone so passionate about his work. Even as Director, he would come almost daily to the division, even if it was just for fifteen minutes, to discuss about our work and provide solutions to our problems. It was primarily due to his efforts that NAL got the leadership role in LCA Control Law Design. His knowledge and expertise in the niche area of Handling Qualities was truly remarkable and unmatched by any other scientist/engineer in India.
Working under his guidance was always an enjoyable and enriching experience. One never stopped learning when one was with him. His ability to quickly read and assimilate information never ceased to amaze me. For a person with electrical and electronics background, his proficiency in analyzing flight mechanics problems was a revelation. Very few know that he is the only Indian Aeronautical Engineer to get a mention in the book titled "Hundered Years of Aeronautical Research in Germany" published by Springer Verlag. He never hesitated to take up new challenges. He was a man with remarkable foresight whose contributions to various national programs like LCA, Brahmos and RLV-TD will long be remembered.
His daily routine in office exhibited his leadership qualities. He would talk to each individual, listening to their achievements and guiding them towards their final goal. This specific act of his made all team members connected to the main objective. He was quick to recognize the gap areas and strived hard to bridge them by forging national/international collaborations. He believed that engineering lay in detailing each and every aspect of the system. The control laws functional definition document written by him stands out as an example. All this led to the development of LCA which is one of the best flying qualities aircraft in the world.
People closely associated with him know him as a warm person with caring attitude. As we bid goodbye to Mr. Shyam Chetty, we salute the maestro who taught us to shun mediocrity and strive for excellence. I am sure the legacy he leaves behind would continue to inspire the youngsters for years to come.
Jatinder Singh, Head, FMCD
TEAM NAL wishes our colleagues a very happy, healthy and productive life after superannuation on 31 May 2016.
Mr Shyam Chetty, FMCD & Director NAL
