Wing Commander Ram Prakash Sharma was a commissioned in the IAF in Jan 66. He has worked in missile squadrons of the IAF in various capacities and performed creditably in all his assignments.

He was posted to Radar Communication Project Office in Aug 75. From 1975 to 1978, he has engaged in planning and co-ordinating the system engineering aspects connected with a modern radar station which was to be installed at a location in the Western Sector. Planning for installation of a radar of this magnitude involved checking of civil engineering drawings, formulation of technical details of the various systems and coordinating the timely supply of various items of hardware from the various manufac turing agencies. Wg Cdr RP Sharma achieved all these tasks and contributed significantly to the commissioning of this radar.

Subsequently planning of the system engineering aspects of the medium power mobile radar was entrusted to this officer in 1978. The installation and integration of a variety of sub systems in the radar system entailed elaborate planning to correlate their technical parameters and coordinate the deliveries of all the sub stations by various agencies. By dint of his dedicated hard work, this officer has ensured that two of these radars are operational and evaluation of the third has been completed. Single handedly, this officer has prepared the integration document which defines the details of the task to be carried out for integrating the radar with the Data Handling and other systems.

For this high standard of professional skill initiative, devotion to duty and distinguished service throughout his career, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander RP Sharma.
