Tiruchirapalli, Jan 26 (UNI) A research on evolving nano-respirocytes had been taken up to assist the jawans in the country, said A Sivathanu Pillai, Chief Controller (Research and Development), Defence Research and Development Organisation and Chief Executive and Managing Director, BrahMos Aerospace, Speaking in a function here yesterday, Dr Pillai said jawans serving in higher altitude suffered due to lesser level of oxygen in the atmosphere.
The nano-respirocytes would facilitate them to get over the respiratory problems, for which a research was made, he said adding that this was one of the positive impact of missile technology, despite its design for 'destructive' purpose.
He said nano-respirocytes was developing faster than Information and Bio-technology. Foreign countries, had invested about 100 billion dollars on research programmes in nano-technology, he added.
Dr Pillai underlined the importance of research programmes with a vision and innovation as a key to achieving overall economic and industrial development in the country. The Industry, academicians and students should take up research programmes to prevent brain drain, he added.
Tracing the growth and development of the missile technology in the country since 1983, he said speed, precision and power were responsible for India's achievement.
We are a fore-runner in the area of missile technology and all countries which were ahead of India, in the past, are lagging behind us now, he added.
