Details :

Wing Commander Bipin Chandran Kurup (7505) Administrative was commissioned in the Jun 63 and inducted into air defence stream. With his extraordinary keenness and devotion to his profession, he attained professional categories in very short time.

During his tenure at two premier Signal Units he worked hard, much beyond the call of duty, to prepare and formulate training documents. Some examples of the officer's total involvement are the work done by him on a number of fighter controllers' notes. The notes prepared by him on the sophisticated radar, when it was inducted into service, are extensively used by all controllers even today. His zeal, organizing ability and devotion to duty had been instrumental in enabling his units to maintain a high category state of controllers, thereby improving the operational potential of the unit.

The officer with unflagging zeal and utmost devotion carried out his excellent work, when posted to the Directorate of Air Staff Inspection. He brought about many effective changes in the pattern of inspection, wherein realistic live and simulated exercises were undertaken for analysis of operational potential of units. He revised the syllabus and procedure of fighter controller's categorization scheme to meet the challenge of changing ground environment. Inspite of the busy inspection schedule, he always willingly involved himself in organizing professional activities, like workshops for examiners and publication of articles on professional subjects.

Wing Commander Kurup, with his keen intellect, professional acumen, untiring zeal, practical approach to problems and meticulous attention to details has made a significant contribution in improving the operational preparedness of Air Defence Units. The President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Bipin Chandran Kurup.
