Details : Group Captain Eshwar Subramaniam (18516) Aeronautical Engineering (Mechanical) was commissioned in the IAF in Aeronautical Engineering (Mechanical) branch on 28 Aug 86. This highly knowledgeable, experienced and disciplined professional has held various key appointments at field Units, Base Repair Depot (BRD), Chief Resident Inspector (CRI) in DGAQA, and a staff appointment at HQ WAC in the past. He presently is the Chief Engineering Officer of a premier flying base in the Western sector. At the Base Repair Depot, he was instrumental in the development of Work Packages and Work Records for various aero-engines overhauled/repaired at the depot. As a CRI at HAL, he took on the task of conceiving and designing a comprehensive booklet for Component Life Monitoring and Replacement Record for Jaguar aircraft which enabled unambiguous life monitoring of aircraft components. In his staff appointment at HQ WAC over a period of four years, this extremely hardworking and knowledgeable officer has been handling nine aircraft fleets of western origin including fighters, transport and helicopter aircraft. His meticulous staff work, foresight and planning had resulted in sustained high serviceability for the fleet under his charge. He was also deeply involved in many indigenisation efforts on the Jaguar aircraft that has not only resulted in reduction of repair cost by over 50% but also, more importantly significantly reduced the downtime. This effort has also considerably enhanced the sustainability of the Jaguar fleet. . As Chief Engineering Officer of a major Air Force Station, over the last ten months, the Officer has been instrumental in improving the serviceability of the five flying squadrons besides supporting more than 1000 hours of flying each month. The challenge of supporting four different fleets of aircraft which includes both Western and Russian origin aircraft along with a many radar and air defence systems was indeed formidable. His able guidance, leadership qualities and personal involvement in all the varied maintenance related issues has ensured an impeccable aviation safety record for the station. This coupled with his active involvement in logistic management has ensured the highest level of user satisfaction in maintenance and logistics matters in the station which has as many as 24 lodger units. The quality of work output of the officer in all tasks assigned to him, his foresight in anticipating impending situations and timely action taken in each of his appointments, have been appreciated on several occasions. He has also infused the same amount of enthusiasm and keenness in his subordinates who display a great deal of pride, and take prompt action to provide a high standard of output. For dedication, skill, knowledge, high professional ability and distinguished service of high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Group Captain Eshwar Subramaniam.
