Details :

Wing Commander GP Singh (13823) AE (L) is on the posted strength of AFPMU C/o 7 BRD, AF wef 09 Aug 93. As STO of the unit he is primarily responsible for modification of Pechora Combat Squadrons with GEM equipment.

In the present day warfare ECCM plays an all important role of value addition to operational capacity of any AD element. GEM modification was developed by DRDL for enhancing the ECCM capability of Pechora MGR to make it comparable to the best available in the world today. The officer could master the modem digitised circuits of GEM kits through total dedications and utmost involvement. It is due to his technical acumen and sincere hard work that interfacing of this modification could be achieved smoothly. He has been responsible in overcoming very serious lacunae associated with the basic modification. Since inception the modification resulted into very poor sensitivity in the range channel. This problem could neither be solved by the DRDL nor BEL. Wing Commander GP Singh by virtue of his innate engineering skills and constant application solved this problem by suggesting introduction of isolators in the circuit. This has resulted in enhancement of operational effectiveness of combat equipment. He also set up Test Jigs for testing and repair of GEM, PCBs and sub assemblies thus obviating dependence on BEL.

Wing Commander GP Singh is also holding charge of senior production engineer of a production wing at 7 BRD. Under his leadership the wing successfully fabricated structure for integration of IFF with ATCR antenna and integration of Antenna mounting unit (AMU) of P-15 radar with P-18 radars resulting in enhanced low level capacity of the radar. For exemplary service of high order the President is pleased to award the "Vishisht Seva Medal" to Wing Commander G P Singh.
