Flight Lieutenant Krishnamurthy Srinivasa (21774) AE (L) was commissioned as Engineer in Electronics on 09 Mar 1992. He has held the appointment of Officer-in-charge Automatic Data Handling System (ADHS) and Fibre Optics Radar Data Remoting System (FORDARS). He had helped in transfer of SADHS equipment from 58 Signals Unit, Air Force to 71 Signals Unit, Air Force.
All Radar data from Radar to ADHS are passed through FORDARS, the lifeline for transfer of data. FORDARS at this unit is prototype, installed in 1988 and has outlived its useful life. This equipment was perpetual source of snags, thereby limiting operational capability and reliability of system. Manufacturer, M/S Indian Telephone Industries, demanded Rupees ten lakhs for replacement of this system.
Displaying rare sense of professional pride, Flight Lieutenant K Srinivasa took the challenge of updating this equipment. After studying system and assessing the requirement of spares, Tools for updatement, undertook the task and executed it at a cost of Rs. 1,20,000/-, which has saved Rs. 8.85 lakhs to exchequer.
For distinguished service of exceptional order, the President is pleased to award "Vishisht Seva Medal" to Flight Lieutenant K Srinivasa.
