Details :

Wing Commander Nirmalendu Rath (18534) AE (L) was commissioned in the IAF in 1986. He is SU-30 qualified and a PG in Comp Sc & Engg. He has been DS in ADGES TI. In Low Level Radar Networking Group (LRNG), he was among the firsts to transmit INDRA RADAR Data through INSAT D satellite. He was trained on FDR of SU-30K ac in Russia in 1997 after which he had set up FDR facility of the SU-30K fleet in the IAF. The vertical acceleration (N) analysis (cyclic loading) software, developed by him, enabled the IAF to draw the Ny profile of each SU- 30K ac. During his tenure as CO of Service Support Centre, Pune, he had improvised the recording of Voice Warning System of SU- 30K ac by use of PC. He has developed a software for Message Management in the flying bases of the IAF. Presently, he is posted at Dte of Personnel Planning (DPP) since 20 Jun 05 as JDPP (EDP & Records).

Soon after taking charge as JDPP (EDP & Records), he successfully developed a very user-friendly front-end package. The package has provision of viewing information for Officers, Airmen, NCs (E) and Civilians in unit, command, IAF based formats. He developed the package single handedly, by putting over 3000 hard man-hours. The software would have cost several lakhs, if it was to be developed by vendor. In-house development of the package has the added advantage of availability of technology catering to the future needs of the IAF. In year 2006, he developed another exclusive Oracle module for implementation of the additional posts sanctioned. The Module not only enabled unit-wise distribution of additional posts but, with direct merger with the EInfo System, facilitated automatic updation. Thus, Air HQ was able to accurately complete implementation of additional posts, within six months, a task, which otherwise would have lingered on for years.

Earlier he was also instrumental in implementing AVSC-I, wherein all UEs of IAF were revised based on Govt. sanction so as to synergize authorization and actual postings. From Nov 06, he has developed another complex software package. The package took 3500 man hours to conceptualize, design, code and test to bring it to this functional level. Most recently he has embarked upon upgrading the hardware by setting up two new servers to handle these extensive software and meet the futuristic requirements of the IAF. For his distinguished service of high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wing Commander Nirmalendu Rath.
