Details : Squadron Leader Rohit Sharma (30941) was commissioned in the Indian Air Force as an engineer in the Aeronautical Engineering (Electronics) branch on 04 January 201o. He is holding the appointment of Flight Commander, Pechora Combat Flight since Dec 2014. He possesses exceptional innovative skills and technical aptitude. To save the running hours of vintage Pechora equipment and to enhance the training value for the combat crew, he conceptualized and successfully fabricated Indigenized Pechora Combat Simulator (IPCS). This has resulted in not only saving crores to the exchequer in terms of fuel, spares and man hours but more importantly resulted in enhancing the operational preparedness of the Pechora units. Subsequently, he played a vital role in fabricating these simulators for all the Pechora bases in the IAF. The simulator was showcased to Hon'ble President of India on Air Force Day. Building on the functionality of IPCS, the officer has developed a Terminal Weapons Control Centre (TWCC) simulator. Till now, no such simulator existed in the IAF and the training was carried out with aircraft strikes. This simulator has allowed training for all elements of TWCC without the associated flying effort. Training is now possible even in adverse external factors such as weather, birds, flight safety restrictions etc. In September 2013, Missile Guidance Radar of the unit was experiencing frequent unserviceabilities due to faulty timer relay. OEM supplied solid state timer relays were not in stock at that time. He successfully fabricated a digital micro controller based timer relay thus reducing the down time of combat equipment. In January 2015, the officer fabricated a micro controller based digital timer unit for monitoring the readiness states of missiles. It not only aids in efficient management of missiles preparation cycles but also significantly eases the job of combat crew. In addition, the officer is presently working on towards digitization of power supply modules. For his technical aptitude, innovativeness and distinguished service of high order at such a young age, Hon'ble President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Squadron Leader Rohit Sharma.
