His tenure at RCPO from 1987 to 1990 was markedly operational activation and handing over AD Radar Units of ADGES network. While at 501 SU and at HQ SWAC IAF, he brought his vast experience into play to bring about significant changes in Air Defence philosophy and planned realistic exercises to validate AD concepts.

During the extended deployment of P-40 radar and other associated assets for over eight months he demonstrated excellent man-management and quality leadership. Siting of radar in the face of adverse environment, poor infrastructure and hostile weather conditions, he displayed admirable resourcefulness and keen initiative.

Finalising Board of Officers, and more necessitating meticulous planning and resource garnering, have been successfully pursued by him during the preceding year.
