Squadron Leader Kirshna Iyengar Ravi (17674) AE (M) has been on the posted strength of a Fighter Squadron since 29 May 99. The officer reported on posting three days after the commencement of Op 'Safed Sagar' and had a very difficult responsibility of discharging the duties of Senior Technical Officer of a premier Fighter Squadron.
During Op 'Safed Sagar' Squadron Leader Ravi played a key role in effectively managing the aircraft of both the Mirage Squadrons at the parent base, for the training of augmented aircrew and conduct of new weapon trials. Even with the meagre resources left behind the officer effectively formed core groups and motivated the team to undertake a varied range of operations including the tasks done for the first time on the fleet. He managed his responsibility exceptionally well.
With an aim to enhance the Op capability of a fighter aircraft, trials for adaptation of 1000 Ibs Conventional Bombs, Pave Way & Griffin Laser Kits and the Lightening Laser Pod were undertaken at base. This posed a challenge for Squadron Leader Ravi as it involved modifications of pylons, aircraft wiring and armament loading/serving proce dures. The officer dedicatedly worked for prolonged hours and led his team by setting an example himself and achieved the results both at base as well as during live trials at Pokharan Range.
Squadron Leader Ravi also had added responsibility to undertake servicing on the Detachment Aircraft, periodically visiting the base as per the maintenance stagger plan. With this exceptional managerial skills and leadership qualities he could flawlessly complete the task in record timeframe.
For distinguished service of a high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Sqn Leader KI Ravi.
