At the Directorate, he has been the key person responsible to establish the Depot Level Maintenance of fighter aircraft.

This enabled the BRD to commence overhaul of the engine modules at an early date resulting in regular savings of nearly Rs. 15 crore annually. Another notable contribution of the officer has been in the Critical Design Review of Lightening Laser Designation Pod to adapt it on a fighter aircraft at Israel. The system has been made operational and has proved to be very effective in operations.

He has an extra ordinary capacity for hard work and the determination to see things through irrespective of the odds. Earlier in his career he was posted at a radar unit and had been involved in developing real time data handling system for AD radars. He has also been the Chief Instructor at Mirage Type Training School.
For rendering distinguished service of a high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wg Cdr VD Galagali.
