Details :

Air Commodore Kamal Singh (13302) AE (M) was commissioned on 31 December 1973 in the Engineering Branch of Indian Air Force. During his 31 years of distinguished service, he has held several important appointments, including that of Joint Director (Quality Assurance Service) and Director (Engineering 'B') at Air Headquarters, Chief Engineering Officer at two flying bases and Assistant Air Attaché at the Embassy of India at Washington (USA). Presently, he is the Air Officer Commanding of a premier Base Repair Depot.

In his present appointment at BRD, Air Commodore Kamal Singh has initiated steps for in-house refurbishment of life-expired Pechora missiles. The pioneering work on recovering two Pechora firing units at Vadodara and Narela, both of which had done more than 5000 hours, has put both these units back into action. Similar retrieval was also effected on critical and expensive components of the very important THD-1955 and PSM-33 radars. Adding of life to old equipment has saved phenomenal Free Foreign Exchange (FFE) to the exchequer by delaying new procurement. Techno-logistics functions at the depot has also received his special attention. An IT-enabled network today steers repairable for rejuvenation or liquidation faster than before, disallowing uncontrolled accumulation. 139 obsolete vehicles and 90 tons of waste metal have been disposed off to generate for new equipment.

Air Commodore Kamal Singh has especially exerted himself to improve the quality of life. His untiring efforts with the otherwise difficult civic organization bore fruit when chronic problems of 20 year old open sewage flowing through the domestic area, choked storm drains, languishing married accommodation project, acute shortage of drinking water, and of dangerous traffic on the main road beyond the domestic area were resolved within one and a half year of his tenure.

Air Commodore Kamal Singh possesses a special managerial ability of instilling camaraderie in his men. This has blended the civilian and MES components of the depot with service personnel and their families to form a synergetic team.

Air Commodore Kamal Singh has thus rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
