Details :

Sqn Ldr RN Gaur is on the posted strength of an AF Station since May 1988. He is employed as Oi/c CR&SS of AN-32 and AVRO aircraft and as Oi/c Radio, Radar and Inst Labs for Avro and AN-32 aircraft. Sqn Ldr Gaur, though being an officer of the AE (L) branch has evinced keen interest in the activities of the AE (M) branch.

Sqn Ldr Gaur apart from achieving fine standards in I and II line servicing on AN-32 aircraft has also applied his technical knowledge in tackling certain problem areas in AN-32 aircraft systems, like flight data recording. Sqn Ldr Gaur indigenised the entire decoding process based on personnel Computer system with an inter-face unit to extract data from storage unit at any desired data segment, a "Commercial TV" for display and a magnetic tape cartridge for storing data of system storage unit. This system is particularly useful in a training institution for aircrew, where the pupil pilots can be debriefed and shown the vital parameters immediately after the sortie. The indigenised system resulted in a saving of Rs. two crores in foreign exchange.

Sqn Ldr Gaur modified the Attitude Interface Unit by doing away with the unreliable VG 208 and used the AGB-3K, stand by artificial horizon of Russian origin which is never used in the aircraft in its place. To match the nature of input required by the American equipment with that of the output of AGB-3K of Russian origin, an interface unit with necessary integrated circuit was developed by Sqn Ldr Gaur with the help of HAL Flight Test Centre. This interface Unit has been successfully tried on two AN-32 ac and is found to be reliable. This modification has resulted in tremendous saving in Foreign Exchange and has provided a reliable aid to negotiate weather.

For his exceptional enthusiasm, dedication to duty and positive contribution in development work resulting in considerable saving in foreign exchange, import substitution and indigenisation of technical system, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Sqn Ldr RN Gaur.
