Details :

Air Commodore Ujagar Singh (12476) AE (L) was commissioned on 05 Dec 70 in the Engineering Branch of IAF. In his 30 years of distinguished service he was given several important appointments and commands viz. Senior Technical Officer of Pechora Missile Squadron, Command Guided Weapon Maintenance Officer, Commanding Officer of Guided Weapon Training Institute, Senior Engineer (Aircraft) of a Fighter Station, Chief Instructor (Technical) at College of Air Warfare and Commanding Officer of Ground Crew Examination Board. He is a graduate of Defence Services Staff College.

As the Senior Technical Officer of Missile Squadron, he incorporated certain modifications in Missile Guidance Radar, which enhanced its operational capability. During his appointment as Command Guided Weapons Maintenance Officer he very thoughtfully worked out several new procedures that improved the Serviceability State of operational units. For his distinguished service, the Chief of the Air Staff commended him in 1990.

In Sep 99, Air Commodore Ujagar Singh took over the command of a Base Repair Depot. He quickly identified the areas needing impetus, and with his foresight and intelligent planning, guided the Depot in the desired direction. In the years 1999-2000 and 2000-2001, the Base Repair Depot not only met the deadlines and completed the allotted task but well surpassed it.

He successfully indigenised the power unit (AD-20) of ST-68 Air Defence Radar. With his perseverance it was possible to indigenise a host of components of Russian origin. Thus, not only Serviceability State of operational units is maintained but valuable foreign exchange is also saved.

He boosted the morale of the Station personnel and kept them well motivated. Various welfare ventures of the Station were considerably improved upon. His Station won the awards for the best Station Medicare Centre of Maintenance Command, IAF in the year 1999 and again as the best in IAF in 2000.

For distinguished service of a high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Air Commodore Ujagar Singh.
