DRDO did wonders, seven storey building built in 45 days, India’s most dangerous weapon will be made in it
Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) is continuously writing success stories. DRDO erected a seven-storey building in 45 days. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will inaugurate this building today. The building will be used as a research and development facility for the fifth generation Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA).
The building will be used for the development of avionics for fighter aircraft flight control systems for AMCA, which will be carried out by the Aeronautical Development Establishment, Bangalore. It is expected that a presentation will be given to the Defense Minister on the projects inside the building itself.
DRDO completed the construction of a multi-storey infrastructure through hybrid technology for the flight control system at ADE, Bengaluru in a record 45 days, an official said. He said the complex will have a facility to develop avionics for fighter aircraft and Flight Control System (FCS) under the Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) project.
India is working on the ambitious AMCA project to develop a fifth generation medium-weight, deep-range fighter with advanced stealth features to enhance its air power capability. The initial development cost of this project is estimated to be around Rs 15,000 crore. The Defense Ministry said on Monday that the process of obtaining the approval of the Prime Minister-led Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) for the design and prototype development of the AMCA has been initiated.
Officials said the building has been constructed using holistic construction techniques in a ‘minimum time frame’ of only 45 days with an aim to provide necessary infrastructure for the AMCA project and related activities. The foundation stone of the project was laid on November 22, 2021 and the actual construction work started from February 1. An official involved in the project said, “This is a unique record of completing the construction of a permanent and fully operational seven-storey building with hybrid construction technology and it has happened for the first time in the country.”
