Wing Commander Satinder Jit Singh (4554) was commissioned in the Aeronautical Engineering (Electronics) Branch of the Indian Air Force in September, 1953. He has commanded two Signal Units with distinction.
In February, 1971, he was posted as the Officer Commanding of a Base Repair Depot on its formation. The unit was initially engaged in receipt of foreign equipment, storage at site, and installation of equipment in technical accommodation without mechanical handling facilities and with very limited manual labour. Wing Commander Singh, by personal example and initiative, completed the installation task on schedule.
During the training and repair task Wing Commander Singh had to start the functional Wing without an adequate establishment and with only partially completed works. He had to work within a very tight time frame. During this period, with many handicaps such as the lack of technological facilities and shortage of manpower, he managed to complete the production task allotted to him and also the training of technical personnel in new and complex process and techniques. It is to his credit that the many complex repair lines of the depot were brought into comm ission during this short period. He took considerable initiative in improvisation whenever lack of facilities hindered the task. With his personal drive, initiative and professional knowledge, he was able to acquire indigenous components and substitutes whenever such components had not materialized through imports.
Wing Commander Satinder Jit Singh is awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal for distinguished service of a high order.
