Wing Commander AK Srivastava was commissioned in the Administrative Branch on 29 Dec 76. He qualified as a Fighter Controller in 1977 and is a category 'A' controller. He was adjudged the Best Fighter Controller in 1987 and passed the Master Fighter Controller Course with directing staff grading. He was posted to Tactics & Air Combat Development Establishment in May 95.
During 'Operation Brass Tacks' he set up a Radar unit in only three days with 16 untrained personnel. At another Air Defence Unit, he maintained and operated proto-type Automatic Data Handling System to peak efficiency without any outside help or formal training on the system. During Mar 95 Wg Cdr Srivastava was tasked to form a Control and Reporting Centre for an exercise. He made excellent use of PCs to overcome limitations of manual system of telling and plotting which normally lead to delayed reactions. The work was appreciated at the highest level in Command and the officer was tasked to develop and demonstrate a functional PC aided CRC within a month. Wg Cdr Srivastava completed the task within the time frame by developing and modifying the available software and hardware. The CRC was manned by only eight personnel as against twenty required for manual system. The same low cost, maintenance free system was used in an Air Force Exercise providing a user friendly environment, thus enhancing operational capability of the IAF.
For distinguished services of a high order, the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wg Cdr AK Srivastava.
