Details :

Squadron Leader Narayanan Sivaramakrishnan was commissioned in the Administrative Branch of the Indian Air Force in June, 1967. Trained in UK on the Jaguar Recce Pod and Photo Interpretation Technique specific to the system, he is presently serving as the Photo Interpretation Officer at an Operational base of the Air Force. The introduction of new sophisticated equipment at this base called for a complete reorganisation of the Photo Section and for reorientation in training of Photo Tradesmen. His first achievement was re-commissioning of an automatic film processing unit from local resources. Earlier this machine had been lying unserviceable for over 2 years. Following this successful rectification work, he trained a large number of Photo Tradesmen in handling this machine and by constant drilling, achieved a very high degree of operational capability. Squadron Leader Sivaramakrishnan has also been instrumental in identifying initial flaws in some films and initiating corrective steps to be taken by the manufacturers. He has been involved in number of trials wherein he not only efficiently carried out his part but also gave valuable suggestions which were incorporated. In the process he has earned high praise from all the agencies involved in the trials. For the Fire Power Demonstration held at Tilpat Range and the IAF Golden Jubilee Celebrations, his contribution has been unique. Having moved a detachment of AF Stn Hindon and geared the resources there, he successfully met the task of dropping the Jaguar Reconnaissance Picture of the VIP enclosure, within 45 minutes from the time the aircraft was overhead the target.

For having rendered devoted service of an exceptional order, the President is pleased to award Vayu Sena Medal to Squadron Leader Narayanan Sivaramakrishnan.
