Group Captain Mohanachandran Panicker (14704) Administration/Air Traffic Controller was commissioned in the Administrative/ Air Traffic Controller Branch of the IAF on 29 Dec 1976. He has held various important appointments that include Senior Air Traffic Control Officer of an Air Force base, Deputy Director Air Staff Inspection at Air Headquarters and the Commanding Officer of a Signal Unit. When he took over as Commanding Officer of a Signal Unit, the 1970 vintage radar installed at the unit was not functioning well and had little product support. He utilized his superior leadership and managerial skills and motivated his personnel to bring up the radar and associated systems to fully serviceable status. His enthusiasm and desire to work tirelessly ensured complete serviceability and operational status of the aging equipment.
Appreciating that unit was located at an area infested with Anti-National Elements (ANEs), he ensured safety and security of all personnel and equipment at all times. He worked tirelessly and with meticulous planning and perseverance, played a vital role in improving the living conditions and morale of personnel. His infectious enthusiasm and professionalism have been a source of inspiration not only to the personnel of this unit but to all aircrew who fly in J&K area.
For his distinguished service of high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Group Captain Mohanachandran Panicker.
