He is an outstanding officer with exceptional professional knowledge and flying skills achieved through sheer hard work and dedication. Using his analytical mind and vision he devised a method for carrying bombing from the Jaguar aircraft using Global Positioning System (GPS). This was especially relevant for the bombing role of Jaguar aircraft in Op Safed Sagar. Even though the squadron was not tasked for Op Safed Sagar, the Jaguar GPS modification itself was carried out with significant contribution from him. The squadron also carried out trials on GPS anti-jamming measures. In acknowledgement of his capabilities, the squadron was also tasked to carry out ground adaptation of Matra Magic II air-to-air missile on Jaguar aircraft, a task which would, normally have been that of Aircraft Systems and Testing Establishment. The squadron is presently standing by to proceed with firing trials of the same missile. Wg Cdr Bhadauria was also detailed to give operational and user inputs to the design and development agencies carrying out Navigation and Weapon Aiming Sub System (Nav WASS) Jaguar upgrade of the IAR Under his leadership, the squadron has also submitted valuable papers on utilisation of Airborne Warning And Control System (AWACS), and night formation flying. During the period of his command the squadron has flown 4500 accident free hours. The squadron has also made serviceable and flown all aircraft on its establishment thereby achieving 100% serviceability. For his exceptional devotion to duty, commitment and dedication to service, high level of professional knowledge, and leading his squadron by example to achieve the highest standards of the [AF, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vayu Sena Medal' to Wing Commander Rakesh Kumar Singh Bhadauria.
