Air Cmde Surjit Krishan Sharma (10829) AE (L) is posted as Air Officer Commanding, AMSE since 09 December 96.

While controlling one of the most prestigious organisations of Air Force, he has always given priority to the operational requirements of Air Defence, Radar and Communication units so as to ensure maximum users satisfaction.

The Air Officer volunteered to increase the task assigned for production year 97-98 by 12% and finally achieved about 14% more than the revised tasks. In addition to accepting and executing many challenging tasks under his efficient leadership, the unit carried out many innovations/modifications like repair of Klystrons of tropo equipment, Sigma milking equipment, aircraft fuel impurity testers, turbo chargers, besides setting up testing facilities for compressors and alternators. To substitute many short supplied imported items, he produced them indigenously at much lower cost. These not only resulted in substantial revenue saving last year but also reduced down period of the vital air defence equipment.

The Air Officer introduced various welfare measures such as provisioning clinical test facilities and equipment for physiotherapy in Station Sick Quarters, traffic training park and computer education in Air Force School, modern facilities in messes, billets and recreational hall etc. which have improved working and social environment.

Highly experienced in computer field, the Air Officer has held many important assignments in past 15 years. With his untiring efforts, time-bound objective and aim of excellence and standardisation, AMSE has been awarded ISO-9002 in Feb 97.

For his leadership, professionalism, and distinguished service of an exceptional order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Air Cmde SK Sharma.
