Details :

Air Commodore Canakapalli Venkata Sesha Suryanarayana Row (4058), Aeronautical Engineering (Electronics), was commissioned in the Air Force in January, 1951. He has competently held many important appointments during his long Service career. On his taking over as Command Signals Officer in June, 1976, Air Commodore Row set to work on the development of indigenous items of signal equipment. The designs of Teleprinter Broadcast Units, Synchronous on­line Cypher Machines and Auto Message Switching Systems, prepared under his guidance, were finally accepted for manufacture. This has helped the country in conserving valuable foreign exchange. He has planned the entire teletype network for a high technology Tropo­scatter communications system, thus enhancing Service efficiency. His recent creditable achievement was the preparation of maintenance schedules for various items for Ground Electronic equipment. Air Commodore Canakapalli Venkata Sesha Suryanarayana Row has thus rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
