Squadron Leader Ajoy Kumar Jha was posted to Air Force Intelligence School as a directing staff in the faculty of Photo Interpretation.
A devoted Photo Interpretation instructor, he set up total photo processing facilities at IPKF HQ at Madras within 48 hours for handling all type of reconnaissance films, without any airman support. Inspite of nonavailability of VICON-80 system, he interpreted 6000 photographs from Jaffna to Vavuniya in a record time of 15 days.
He planned helicopter reconnaissance sorties along with Para Commando. Based on his observation and recommendations, a number of probable hideouts of LTTE and suitable helipads were marked for the Vavuniya Sector. He prepared a master Mosaic superimposed with intelligence, which were extensively used by the Para Commando and Div HQ at Vavuniya. This is the first time, Signatures of LTTE hideouts were given to IPKF by the Air Force and Sqn Ldr Jha was the man behind this contribution.
For his contribution as a Photo Interpreter of very high order in the success of IPKF Operations, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Sqn Ldr AK Jha.
